integrated Lights-Out is the proprietary management software integrated onto HP, now HP Enterprise, servers. The presence of iLO on HPE servers allows for a complete control of the server: it can power on, power off and reset it as well as offering a basic configuration set and check on the hardware status.
iLO is usually installed on a dedicated chipset equipped with a dedicated management network port, which works out of band and can be used to connect to iLO also if the server is powered off. The Advanced configuration panel offers a console for the visualization of the “virtual” screen and for the usage of virtual media to hook ISO images. The main management interface is available via Web, but some basic configurations can be performed during the boot phase of the server itself.
The current version of iLO is v4.
