Hi:

 

You may also want to post your question in the Proliant servers section in the HP Business Support Forum.

DL380 G7 Proliant not holding it's Default Gateway address in the iLo3 settings?

this thread isn't too old so i shall post here in the hopes of a reply:

i investigated the case given (c03283274) and while it fits my situation exactly, I can unequivocally state that it is NOT a "display only" issue.

 

I have 2 x dl380 g7s in the same rack, both at the same firmware revision of 1.28, i am using the same IPs and cables (sequentially, of course), and the second server stubbornly refuses to accept the default gateway i give it and also does not respond from the switch to which it is connected (which it would if, as the advisory states, it is really there, just not showing itself.)

 

I have attempted to "trick" it from a number of angles, assuming the correctness of the advisory, that there is some point at which it puts it in the bucket though it is not visible (eg. reset, re-enter / reset to defaults, reboot, re-enter / reset to defaults, shutdown, unplug, re-enter / cycle through the ancillary transceiver options in concert with the ip config / enter an entirely bogus gateway, attempt save, fail, enter correct gateway / etc.)

 

I offer this long-winded set to hopefully forestall any of the more obvious questions of troubleshooting on my part, but the short-and-sweet is the 0.0.0.0 gateway being displayed across F10 saves is very obviously acting as a blank in the active configuration of the dl380 g7 ilo3 in question. 

 

Do you have any further insight? I have found no more questioning of this issue on the web. (Possibly b/c others were able to get around this with a direct connect laptop more forgiving of a missing gateway than a switchport.  I do not have this option.)

 

thanks -

If I were you, I would take my advise above and copy and paste your post in the Servers forum.

 

You are not going to get any answers on the consumer forum.
