      Added the following:

      • Support added for ProLiant BL30p server.

      • "Static IP Bay Configuration" feature to ease the initial deployment of an entire enclosure, or the subsequent deployment of blades within an existing enclosure. This feature permits the iLO management processor in each blade slot to obtain a predefined IP address without relying on DHCP. iLO is immediately accessible for server deployment using Virtual Media and other remote administration functions.

      • A simple command set that can be used during telnet Remote Console sessions or Virtual Serial Port sessions. Using various key sequences, the server can be powered on/off/reset, or the UID light can be turned on/off from the telnet session.

        Key sequences for simple command set available for use during telnet sessions:

          &ltCTRL-P 0&gt Turn power off (simple press of button)
          &ltCTRL-P 1&gt Turn power on
          &ltCTRL-P 6&gt Perform ACPI shutdown (hold power button for 6 seconds)
          &ltCTRL-P !&gt Perform reboot (immediate power shutdown, followed by power on)
          &ltCTRL-U 0&gt Turn UID light off
          &ltCTRL-U 1&gt Turn UID light on

        Key sequences operate during a telnet remote console session or virtual serial port session. The keys will not work before authentication or before the user selection of 'r' (remote console) or 's' (virtual serial port). The power control requests are correctly ignored when the user does not have the proper privilege for power control.
      Enhanced the Virtual Serial Port to operate on Linux operating systems without having to use the Linux 'setserial' command to configure the non-standard IO address of 0x0408 for the serial port. Legacy IO addresses used in Linux by default now function.

          Version:1.55 (11 May 2004)
          Enhancements

          Upgrade Requirement:
          Optional - Users should update to this version if their system is affected by one of the documented fixes or if there is a desire to utilize any of the enhanced functionality provided by this version.


          Added the following:

          • Support added for ProLiant BL30p server.

          • "Static IP Bay Configuration" feature to ease the initial deployment of an entire enclosure, or the subsequent deployment of blades within an existing enclosure. This feature permits the iLO management processor in each blade slot to obtain a predefined IP address without relying on DHCP. iLO is immediately accessible for server deployment using Virtual Media and other remote administration functions.

          • A simple command set that can be used during telnet Remote Console sessions or Virtual Serial Port sessions. Using various key sequences, the server can be powered on/off/reset, or the UID light can be turned on/off from the telnet session.

            Key sequences for simple command set available for use during telnet sessions:

              &ltCTRL-P 0&gt Turn power off (simple press of button)
              &ltCTRL-P 1&gt Turn power on
              &ltCTRL-P 6&gt Perform ACPI shutdown (hold power button for 6 seconds)
              &ltCTRL-P !&gt Perform reboot (immediate power shutdown, followed by power on)
              &ltCTRL-U 0&gt Turn UID light off
              &ltCTRL-U 1&gt Turn UID light on

            Key sequences operate during a telnet remote console session or virtual serial port session. The keys will not work before authentication or before the user selection of 'r' (remote console) or 's' (virtual serial port). The power control requests are correctly ignored when the user does not have the proper privilege for power control.
          Enhanced the Virtual Serial Port to operate on Linux operating systems without having to use the Linux 'setserial' command to configure the non-standard IO address of 0x0408 for the serial port. Legacy IO addresses used in Linux by default now function.
