Gen8 MicroServer iLO4 & Remote Monitoring & License

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know the best price for the iLO4 advanced/essentials license:

this one is cheap and seems to be confirmed working, no such luck in the UK......do we have a seperate thread for iLO 4 License setup I looked around and could not see one, would be great if we can see what HP part numbers are compatible with the iLO 4 after all it is just a serial number.

 

Thanks and sorry if I have posted in wrong place, I did look first honest....

We should start a iLo thread or perhaps a remote monitoring thread.

Thanks for the find, I ordered one, for $42 its worth the risk. It is the current part number.

Normally, advanced is $350-400 and essentials is $100-130.

Buy.com US has it for $59; the UK version is more;

Several eBay sources for $35;

Nice to see that these extra features can be had at a reasonable price.

Hi All,

 

Just a quick update I have cough, :ph34r:  cough found a few iLO 2 keys, and they work fine for iLO4, so I suspect the ones of ebay, Amazon etc will be good as well.

Not to be critical, but I hope those iLO2 keys are legit.

I finally started playing with iLo on the MS G8.

Similar to others, with the B120i enabled everything was fine. B120i and a P212 in the system iLo can not find either.

I have a ticket open with HP support.

I got my license today, it is an older key but it seems to be working fine as well.

My big question is, does anyone know what happens at the end of a year?

 

Do you just lose phone support and updates, or do features you have purchased disable?  I'm okay with losing support, but I'd be disappointed if it means losing remote access functionality.
