By default, your iLO interface is configured to use a DHCP IP address.

If you don't know the IP address of your iLO interface, you need to access the DHCP server and verify the IP address leased to the iLO interface.

On the DHCP server, you need to look for a device using the name listed on the HP TAG.

In our example, the HP Tag specifies the hostname ILOBRC5216H1J.

On the prompt screen, enter the administrative login information.

Factory default access information:

Password: Available on the information label of your server
