iLO MAC Address on RHEL 5.7
 
Hi All,
What command to use to obtain "iLO" MAC address?

Thanks!

No idea, since you don't tell us what kind of hardware you're wanting to find out out. You *MIGHT* be able to look in the DMESG output to find it, but some of them you can only find by rebooting the server, and going into the BIOS at boot-time.

If you have another interface on the same network segment as the iLO port, ping it then use "arp -a" to get the MAC from the ARP cache.

If the system is up and running there is a utility that can read the MAC. See http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/d...name=c01041643 and Search the HP Support site for "Lights-Out Configuration Linux".

The arp command could work well, good catch. But if he's on a network with lots of devices....it make take some doing. And the utility you mentioned only works on HP systems...Dell, Sun, and other manufacturers also have ILO systems, and the OP hasn't said what they are using.
