Changing the name on an iLO port

Friday, April 15th, 2016

We have a console network to handle access to all the DRAC and iLo ports. Every so often people forget to change the name assigned to the port.

I was reloading several systems for a new project and of course there was one that was not changed. It is running the xen hypervisor so there wasn’t a quick way to address this.

I accessed the host through the iLO port and was able to rename the system. However, there was a message (aren’t there always?):

There are pending changes that may not take effect until iLO is reset.

I looked around the iLO pages but there wasn’t a command to do this.

What about the iLO port itself?

SSH into the port

enter: CD /map1

enter: reset

Waited a little bit and the correct hostname worked on the console network.
