Issues connecting iLo4 in my Gen8


Recommended Posts



I am new to this forum  with writting.

I hope my English is good enough.

My HP MS G8 is running now for nearly a year. I never managed it to connect to the iLO webpage.


- connection of both NICs to router is done

- static IP adress and a unique DNS name

when I enter the ip or DNS into a browser the home page of my WHS2011 is appearing but not the iLO page?


I really need help :)


It seems to be obvious that I am not really familar with this topic so I hope you can help me in easy words :)

Thanks for your quick replies.


The main NIC has IP

the second (iLO) has


I tried it from the Server and from a Laptop in the same network both bring up the WHS2011 screen.

The DHCP is turned off otherwise I was not able to advice a special IP.


At home I will double check all these configurations.

OK, I checked your last question, Yes it is showing the correct IP adress at boot screen

I checked at router, both IP adresses have a unique DNS and are online


I tried again to contact it with IE and but again, the WHS2011 logon screen appeared

Are you sure you are on the ilo port and not the second nuc port. Also boot to the intelligent provisioning there is a section for ilo there where it could have been turned off the ilo port and be set as a VLANed port on one of the two onboard NUCs. You will want it on its dedicated port.
