HP Integrated Lights-Out

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

(Redirected from Integrated Lights-Out)

Jump to: navigation, search

This article is about HP computer server technology. For other uses, see ILO.

Integrated Lights-Out, or iLo, is an embedded server management technology exclusive to Hewlett-Packard but similar in functionality to the Lights out management (LOM) technology of other vendors.

iLO makes it possible to perform activities on an HP server from a remote location. The iLO card has a separate network connection (and its own IP address) to which one can connect via HTTPS. Possible options are:

  • reset the server (in case the server doesn't respond anymore via the normal network card)
  • power-up the server (possible to do this from a remote location, even if the server is shut down)
  • take over the screen
  • mount remote physical CD/DVD drive or image.
  • access the server's IML (Integrated Management Log)
  • remote console (in some cases however an 'Advanced license' maybe required for some of the utilities to work)

iLo is useful as an out-of-band management technology. The physical connection is an Ethernet port that can be found on most Proliant servers of the 300 and above series. This port can be enabled using the set-up utility which can be accessed with the F8 key during POST. In this screen an IP can be assigned via DHCP or static. It is also important to create a user so this utility can be accessed. Once the configuration has been done it has to be saved and the server needs to be restarted. To access the utility, be sure that a cable is connected to the iLo port on the back of the server. The iLo IP can be entered in the address bar of any web browser and a login screen will be shown; put the username and password that has just been created.

iLo provides some other utilities like virtual media (CD, floppy), virtual power and a remote console. iLo is always embedded on the System Board.

There also is a PCI expansion card available for HP servers that supports iLO. It's usually called RILOE. There is a RILOE II as well. The iLo 2 is currently available for some server models, such as the BL465c. For some of the 100 series servers and the smaller 300s that is the prime Lights out option, which has a kind of IML and limited functions.

Version 1.60 introduced the "iLO Shared Network Port" that allows remote system management to take place over the system NIC instead of the dedicated management port. This saves valuable ports in high density areas but it is limited to some specific servers. According to the Revision History for iLO version 1.60 A, "iLO Shared Network Port" is available on DL360 G4, ML370 G4, and DL380 G4. The current version for Proliant servers is version 1.89, released 5 December 2006.

Telephone bill !!!

The phone bill was exceptionally high and

the man of the house called a family meeting...

On a Saturday morning...

after breakfast...

People this is unacceptable.
You have to limit the use of the phone.
I do not use this phone, I use the one at the office.
Same here,
I hardly use this home telephone as I use my work telephone.
Me too,
I never use the home phone.
I always use my company mobile.
So - what is the problem?
We all use our work telephones !!!!!

Beyond The Imagination "The Timex Nail Watch"

The Timex Nail Watch: Get the Time on Your nails


We have seen many different types of futuristic watches with strange shapes and design but none so unique as this. Now lets welcome the Nail watch, that can be worn on the thumb. You may have never seen a watch that can be worn on the thumb but times are going to change thanks to Timex. Timex, in collaboration with Core77, held a global design competition called 2154: the future of time design. So what we are seeing here is the TX54 concept which was a runner up there.


Thanks to a translucent body, the design blends seamlessly with the nail while a selection of text color options and a glow feature activating on command make it supremely functional as well. Press the end of your thumbnail, and the watch will light up for you. A perfect blend of appearance, user interface, and technology, the nail watch passes most standards of modern design with flying colors thanks to its functional and minimalist appeal. The watch looks stylish and chic and has a touch of Geeky style as well. The downside of this watch is that it is disposable. So with so many stylish watched being available now, it will be hard for it to survive in the market. Though it is quite innovative with a minimalist design, but it won't last long on your finger.

No details about the availability or the price of this watch has been released by Timex. But since it is tiny and disposable, I don't expect the price to be high.

Conference call - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A conference call is a telephone call in which the calling party wishes to have more than one called party listen in to the audio portion of the call. The conference calls may be designed to allow the called party to participate during the call, or the call may be set up so that the called party merely listens into the call and cannot speak. It is often referred to as an ATC (Audio Tele-Conference).

Conference calls can be designed so that the calling party calls the other participants and adds them to the call. In most cases, the participants are able call into the conference call themselves, by dialing into a special telephone number that connects to a \"conference bridge\" (a specialized type of equipment that links telephone lines).

Usually, most companies use a specialized service provider who maintains the conference bridge, or who provides the phone numbers and PIN codes that participants dial to access the meeting or conference call.

Three-way calling is available (usually at an extra charge) for most customers on their home or office phone line. To three way call, the first person one wishes to talk to is dialed. Then the Hook flash button is pressed and the other person\'s phone number is dialed. While it is ringing, flash is pressed again. This will put the three people together. This option allows callers to add a second outgoing call to an already connected call.

Server farms go solar - Oct. 4, 2007

Server farm goes solar
A data storage company generates all its own power using solar panels.
Business 2.0 Magazine
By Todd Woody, Business 2.0 Magazine
October 4 2007: 4:53 AM EDT

(Business 2.0 Magazine) -- Massive data centers are vital to the economy. They are also notorious power hogs. If their numbers keep growing at the expected rate, the United States alone will need nearly a dozen new power plants by 2011 just to keep the data flowing, according to the Environmental Protection Agency.

That\'s why a small server-farm company called (for \"affordable Internet services online\") has gone completely off the grid. Located 80 miles southeast of Los Angeles in the desert hamlet of Romoland, has flanked its 2,000-square-foot building with two banks of ground-mounted solar panels, which generate 12 kilowatts of electricity. Batteries store the juice for nighttime operation.

To slash energy consumption, switched from 120 individual servers to four IBM blades running virtualization software that lets one computer do the work of multiple machines. The cooling system cranks up for only about 10 minutes an hour, and when the outside temperature drops to 60 degrees, air is sucked into the building to cool the servers. Solar tubes built into the roof illuminate the facility's interior.

The service is attracting plenty of eco-conscious clients. Al Gore's Live Earth concerts were webcast on's servers in July. And San Diego startup GreenestHost is reselling's services to mom-and-pop website operators who want to go carbon-neutral. "Small data centers could easily start to adapt and make changes like this," says co-founder Phil Nail, who claims the project cost about $100,000.

His monthly electric bills, once as high as $3,000, have dropped to zero. Larger data centers can't match that. But Sun Microsystems (Charts, Fortune 500) did recently slash power consumption 61 percent by consolidating its Silicon Valley servers into a single state-of-the-art facility. And IBM (Charts, Fortune 500) BladeCenter VP Alex Yost sees growing demand for energy-efficient servers like the ones uses. "It's an enormous economic opportunity," he says.

How to Become an Early Riser

This article is very much unconcerned with this blog. it is also posted on Healty Tips

- Don’t make drastic changes.
Start slowly, by waking just 15-30 minutes earlier than usual. Get used to this for a few days. Then cut back another 15 minutes. Do this gradually until you get to your goal time.

- Allow yourself to sleep earlier.
You might be used to staying up late, perhaps watching TV or surfing the Internet. But if you continue this habit, while trying to get up earlier, sooner or later one is going to give. And if it is the early rising that gives, then you will crash and sleep late and have to start over. I suggest going to bed earlier, even if you don’t think you’ll sleep, and read while in bed. If you’re really tired, you just might fall asleep much sooner than you think.

- Put your alarm clock far from you bed.
If it’s right next to your bed, you’ll shut it off or hit snooze. Never hit snooze. If it’s far from your bed, you have to get up out of bed to shut it off. By then, you’re up. Now you just have to stay up.

- Go out of the bedroom as soon as you shut off the alarm.
Don’t allow yourself to rationalize going back to bed. Just force yourself to go out of the room. My habit is to stumble into the bathroom and go pee. By the time I’ve done that, and flushed the toilet and washed my hands and looked at my ugly mug in the mirror, I’m awake enough to face the day.

- Do not rationalize.
If you allow your brain to talk you out of getting up early, you’ll never do it. Don’t make getting back in bed an option.

- Have a good reason.
Set something to do early in the morning that’s important. This reason will motivate you to get up. I like to write in the morning, so that’s my reason. Also, when I’m done with that, I like to read all of your comments!

- Make waking up early a reward.
Yes, it might seem at first that you’re forcing yourself to do something hard, but if you make it pleasurable, soon you will look forward to waking up early. A good reward is to make a hot cup of coffee or tea and read a book. Other rewards might be a tasty treat for breakfast (smoothies! yum!) or watching the sunrise, or meditating. Find something that’s pleasurable for you, and allow yourself to do it as part of your morning routine.

- Take advantage of all that extra time.
Don’t wake up an hour or two early just to read your blogs, unless that’s a major goal of yours. Don’t wake up early and waste that extra time. Get a jump start on your day! I like to use that time to get a head start on preparing my kids’ lunches, on planning for the rest of the day (when I set my MITs), on exercising or meditating, and on reading. By the time 6:30 rolls around, I’ve done more than many people do the entire day.

This all is copied from another blog. "Zen Habits"

Converte MP3 files to AMR using Mobile Media Converter

I had a CD of Full Quran in a very nice voice and qirat. The size of the whole 114 MP3 files was 571 MB. In old days we had 6-7 Audio CD's; thankx to MP3 format; that reduced the full Quran in only 1 CD.

Problem was that; one of my friends needed to have that Qirat in his mobile. mmm... its very larg space to fit in 512 MB of mini SD with other stuff.

Q: How to reduce the size
Ans: Convert to AMR format for Mobile.

Solution::: I searched for converter from MP3 to AMP. Many software but all limited by license. I searched for freeware and finally found very nice software "
Mobile Media Converter". You can download by clicking on it.

If you've any problem in downloading or using leave me a comment; I'll positively reply you.

Visit back my blog regularly for more tips..

Feeding the Cloud: Disabling the GMail spam filter and handling it yourself using SpamAssassin

I've been using GMail ever since they decided to allow users to download their mail using POP. I was happy reading my email as usual in mutt. The only problem was that I had to log onto the website once in a while to clear out my spam folder and fish out the false positives.

However, as the amount of spam I receive daily started growing exponentially (in part thanks to my involvement in Debian), I became more and more dissatisfied with this solution. I had to login several times a day just to keep the levels of spam down to a manageable level. I tried emailing the GMail support team a few times without success.

The solution came just as I was looking at switching to a different email provider: IMAP access.Using fetchmail, I can now download my received and sent mail using POP and then download (and purge) the contents of my spam folder. Here are the relevant lines of my ~/.fetchmailrc:
poll protocol pop3 user "" is "francois" password "" fetchall sslpoll protocol imap user "" is "francois" password "" folder "[Gmail]/Spam" fetchall sslI can then run all of my mail through my own SpamAssassin filter (to which I added these excellent custom rules) and sort my mail in one of three folders:
definitely spam (conveniently located in /dev/null) for a score greater than 12
probably spam (I need to check those manually once in a while)
not spam for messages with a score less than 5This is done using procmail with the following bit in my ~/.procmailrc:
# Use spamassassin to check for spam# (only check messages <> 12.0:0:* ^X-Spam-Level: \*\*\*\*\*\*\*\*\*\*\*\*/dev/null:0:* ^X-Spam-Status: Yes/home/francois/mail/spam
