Re: problem with hponcfg.exe

Update the iLO firmware. You can download the firmware from the HP website - http://h18023.www1.hp.com/support/files/server/us/download/24584.html
The version of the latest iLO firmware that is available is 1.82.

I've a last question :
In another server, i try to use hponcfg but here the error that i get :

HPONCFG RILOE-II/iLO setup and configuration utility
Version 1.4 (c) Hewlett-Packard Company, 2005

ERROR: Unable to establish communication with iLO/RILOE-II.

the driver version is 1.4.4.0 and i don't understand why i cannot use hponcfg.

Re: problem with hponcfg.exe

The error will be as a result of some driver interface issue.
* Try restarting the driver (disable and re-enable).
* If that does not work, uninstall the driver and install the same or the latest version of the driver.
Note: In case you update the iLO Management interface driver to a new version, it is better to update even the HP Inight management agents.
* If none of the above is working, just check if iLO is up and running.

Re: problem with hponcfg.exe

thanx again for your quick answer

The problem is that if I uninstalling/installing iLO driver I would have to reboot the host and it's a thing that I can't do (24/7 disponibility).

Anyway thank you for your help.
