    HP iLO2

    Just received a new HP Proliant ML310 server - with the understanding that it has 2 network ports. One of the ports is an iLO2 port which I want to disable and use as a standard network port that can be accessed by Endian Firewall. Can this be done and used in this way, or do I need to add a new network card?

    Assuming you're not short of PCI slots, i'd suggest getting another NIC, as you might fancy using ILO later.

    Maybe I might, but not at the minute. Do we know how to disable it and use it as a standard NIC?

    As far as im aware you can't disable it, most HP servers have 3 network ports, 2 normal NIC and 1 ILO, but maybe yours isn't one of them.

    I don't think it is possible, as the port is a hardware port specifically for the ilo hardware (which is not a normal part of the system, but is instead a dedicated processor (else you wouldn't be able to do things like remote power)).

    Ok, thanks for the replies. That is what I thought - going to order a second HP NIC now then!
