HP ProLiant Essentials Rapid Deployment Pack integrates with iLO 3 to allow the management of remote servers and the performance of remote console operations regardless of the state of the operating system or hardware.
The Deployment Server provides the ability to use the power management features of iLO 3 to power on, power off, or cycle power on the target server. Each time a server connects to the Deployment Server, the Deployment Server polls the target server to see if a LOM management device is installed. If installed, the server gathers information including the DNS name, IP address, and first user name. Security is maintained by requiring the user to enter the correct password for that user name.
