HP have finally released a tool to make it easier to obtain full driver packs for their hardware. In the past we have had to individually download each driver manually from the HP website, this was very painful and time consuming. Hopefully their new tool will eliminate a lot of this pain and time (Dell’s equivalent was released about 5 years ago!)  More info:

HP iLO Integrated Remote Console is unavailable

I was recently using the HP iLO Remote Console feature, when the Java session crashed and I needed to restart the session. Upon trying to restart the Remote Console feature, I was presented with an error message – “The Integrated Remote Console is unavailable, it is already in use by a different client”.

On the iLO2 firmware that this server has, there is the “Aquire” feature. Once it is enabled, you may “take over” the an Remote Console session. Unfortuately, it appears this is not enabled by default. To enable it:

Remote Console > Settings
Remote Console Acquire: Enabled
An ‘Aquire’ Option will then appear on the window with the ‘The Integrated Remote Console is unavailable, it is already in use by a different client’ text. Click this button to take control of your session that had previously crashed.
