My team mate handed over an issue with the HP iLO on a DL380. When trying to browse to the iLO web page, he got the following error:
The iLO firmware is in a network flash recovery state.
Refer to the iLO network flash recovery under the trouble shooting section in the iLO users guide.
The first thing as recommended is to try pulling out the cables in the server and see it the iLO recovers. No such luck, which is why my team mate passed it on to me!
Anyway, did a quick search on the internet and found the solution. I am sure this can be found in the iLO troubleshooting manual, but if google did not find it, it must be hidden quite deep.
You can perform a flash recovery via FTP to the iLO (assuming you can still ping the iLO).
- Logon to the iLO via FTP
- Logon using the flash recovery credentials
- put the iLO bin
- iLO will reset (and hopefully recover after that!)
Here is a sample of what you might do:
