Hello,

 

I looked for an iLO Update. I find 2.00 (9 Sep 2014)

 

I start Online ROM Flash Component for Windows x64 - HP Integrated Lights-Out 4:

Before:

HP ProLiant System ROM    11/09/2013
HP ProLiant System ROM - Backup    11/09/2013
HP ProLiant System ROM Bootblock    02/04/2012
iLO    1.40 Jan 14 2014
Intelligent Provisioning    1.60.217
Server Platform Services (SPS) Firmware    2.2.0.31.2
System Programmable Logic Device    Version 0x06  

After:

HP ProLiant System ROM    11/09/2013
HP ProLiant System ROM - Backup    11/09/2013
HP ProLiant System ROM Bootblock    02/04/2012
iLO    2.00 Jul 30 2014
System Programmable Logic Device    Version 0x06
Server Platform Services (SPS) Firmware    2.2.0.31.2
Intelligent Provisioning    1.60.217 

Know I have iLO Version 2.0 and my fan is on 50% (I use AHCI SATA Mode).

 

I hope, that this was not a big fail. :(

 

EDIT:

 

After a reboot, the fan is again on 29% and iLO sees again the 13-LOM

 

The question is: is this 2.0 iLO now bad for my Gen8 Microserver?

 

Greetings

Well, iLO 4's most recent version before 2.0 was 1.51, and seemed to fix a lot of fan issues (I believe it was in conjunction with the updated BIOS though too).  If you want to make a comparison, I'd probably make it between 1.51 and 2.0, skipping 1.40 entirely.

 

I'm downloading 2.0 now though, and if I see any differences, I'll report them as I find them.

 

EDIT:  Did you install the updated iLO controller driver too?

No, I only install the "Online ROM Flash Component for Windows x64 - HP Integrated Lights-Out 4".

 

Today in the afternoon I can update the iLO Controller Driver.

I didn't notice any difference with the new iLO4 V2.00 -- now the BIOS ROM J06 6/6/2014 did slow down the fan speed even in Increased Cooling from 37-41% to pretty steady at 29% so a significant difference in sound (but it's in my basement so it's not a issue there)

I have experienced a slight slowdown in the fans after the upgrade.  Now between 31-36%.

 

Note that I have also upgraded the P222 firmware, the P222/B120i drivers (which now appear to be an integrated package), and the iLO controller driver.

I didn't install the iLO controller driver - what exactly does it do?

I didn't notice anything from the iLO4 upgrade -- only the BIOS upgrade though maybe it was the two in tandem that brought the system fan speed down, don't know.

I didn't install the iLO controller driver - what exactly does it do?

 

Best guess --it makes Windows aware of the iLO in certain ways that might allow some system events to be passed through.  That's a best guess though, not a definitive answer.

 

I used the very unscientific method of looking at the iLO 4 drivers/firmware section and spotting files that had the same new date (I believe it was September 9, 2014) and applying things to my Server 2012R2 install.  I had previously installed the drivers, so it did tell me that the update applied but I was out of date, and offered to update for me.
