Trouble logging into iLO from IE6

Here's a problem I am having with accessing the iLO port from a web browser. I am able to get into the iLO port by pressing during the startup, however, I am unable to login to the ML370 iLO port via my browser.

When I connect through the browser, I am able to accept the certificate and get to the login screen, but when I enter in the username and password and click the Login button, nothing happens. My browser is IE6 128 bit.

Has anyone else experienced this? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
Mike

Mike,

By any chance, do you have an underscore in your iLO dns name?

Does it work if you browse iLO by its ip address?

Re: Trouble logging into iLO from IE6

Thanks for the reply. I've just been accessing it by typing the IP address into my browser.

I'm able to get to the login screen, so it doesn't seem to be a connectivity issue. I'm thinking maybe its a setting that we may have set in IE since we lock down many of the security settings in IE. I'm not sure what browser settings iLO may require though.

Did you try accessing it with another browser, say firefox?

You can download it from here

I've seen instances when digital certificates get messed up and one browser works and the other won't...

iLO uses session cookies to track logins. These are non-persistent cookies - that is, by closing your browser, the cookie is erased. If your browser has cookies disabled, it could cause problems.

We're in a controlled environment where we pretty much have to use IE6. I'll check our Cookies setting to see if that could be the problem.

Thanks!

Mike,
Also ensure that any users browsing to the login screen either complete login or close the login screen to allow access to other users. There was a CUSTOMER ADVISORY about that. I'll attach it here.
