Gen8 MicroServer -- iLO4 Management - AlertMail

Recommended Posts

GotNoTime

Did anyone find a way round this?

 

Even my old DNS 2 bay NAS has the option for username and password so I can send the alerts from that through my ISPs SMTP mail server...

No. No support for authentication or encryption. As ajohnson30 mentioned, it is intended that you're sending these emails to an internal mail server and not directly out to the internet.

 

I've got a very low power ARM board here just running some basic network services such as a mail server and syslog receiver. I set the iLO AlertMail feature to send to that which then relays via my ISP mail server. Something like a Raspberry Pi 2 in a case would work well.

Seems a bit of a major oversight! Most people don't have a SMTP server let alone an open one...

 

Whats the ARM board you have? No idea what that is....

I tried wrestling this for a while, but all ways proven unsuccessful.

 

The only was I was able to get Alertmail to work with Gmail was to spin out a CentOS vm with Postfix.

The MicroServer Gen8 is part of the Proliant family of servers that are designed for IT departments. Pretty much all IT departments have a mail server.

Yep, but what if the company is small so only has 1 server, ie. microserver which is what they are aimed at after all, and their mail server runs on it... if it goes down it can't send the alert

 

Plus a lot of companies host their email in the cloud.

Most cloud providers allow you to forward mail through one of there mail servers.

Yeah if you are a business perhaps, but as an individual, for free?

thats the point - the micro server is aimed at a business!

 

anyway, have you tried your ISP SMTP server or spoke to them?

My ISP (Virgin Media in the UK) accepts non-authenticated SMTP as long as its from one of their connections. I can send iLO emails fine when connected direct but they bounce if I redirect all traffic on my perimeter router to another endpoint...

Yeah small business where it's not always an option.

 

Anyway I'm with virgin as well actually but had it ages so still got a blueyonder email address... Maybe still possible. I didn't see any mention of it on their help pages tho.

 

By redirect traffic... Did you mean it doesn't work when you connect to a vpn or something?

      As I have decided to make some improvements on my afermarket fan controller I am trying to try implementing thermal control or mobo PWM control of additional fans, but before that I'm in a great need to inderstand how much fan count the controller should be ready to support. As this forum doesn't support polls I have nothing to do but ask you to reply on this topic.
       
      What I would be thankful to know:
      1. How many fans have you installed in your Microserver.
      2. What fans do you use (size, 3/4-pin connector) and where are they located, also what are they cooling.
      3. What way do you power these fans?
       
      Thank you in advance for your feedback!

      Hi everyone.
       
      New to this forum.
      I have a gen8 microserver running at home, where I have installed an SSD in the ODD sata slot. On the SSD I have installed Ubuntu Server 18.04.
      I have then created a logical volume witht the raid controller and can then boot to the SSD. So far so good.
      My problem emerges when I reboot the system. The logical volume disapears and it gives the error: "boot logical drive is configured but is missing or offline".
      I then have to go into the utility and reconfigure the logical volume. Kind of annoying, when trying to run a headless setup.
