Re: ilo monitored server console is in an unsupported text mode

What is the OS present on the server?

Are you getting the message when server boots or when OS is loaded?

Are you able to access console of any other server from the same client?

Have you tried accessing the server console from another client having different JVM?

Thanks for pointing me to the post. I had seen it but it has failed to provide me with any clue and btw I do not have the special HP cable to connect a monitor

We ended up physically resetting the ILO and it worked!

We opened the blade and changed the switch positions at the back (from my recollection there are 6 switches and the positions are explained on a chart that is inside the blade cover)
