The GET_SERVER_NAME command is used to retrieve the host server name used by the iLO 3. You can set this parameter using several methods, including the SERVER_NAME command, host RBSU, iLO 3 browser-based interface, and loading HP ProLiant Management Agents.

This command is supported by iLO 3 firmware version 1.30 or later. It is not supported by iLO or RILOE II.

iLO 3 maintains consistency between the various places the server name is used. The host RBSU has a two-line limitation of 14 characters each, or 28 characters of total server name text length.

Normally, HP ProLiant Management Agents are used to forward the server name attribute to iLO 3. This command can be used in instances where management agents are not used. However, the host operating system remains unaffected.
