ILO / NTP / Timezones

Nathan Simon Nathan Simon Profile: Nathan Simon

If you would like to know how to enable NTP settings on ILO, don’t ask, as it cannot be done. Others have asked if ILO can run in a different timezone. Based on many reports, ILO syncs with the host clock, or BIOS. Because of this ILO cannot show time as if its in another time zone.

If you are running ESX on your server, then you would have to adjust time in the BIOS.

If you are running a windows hosts, I believe you can adjust time via HP Insight.

Best to just set the time properly the first time! If time is off by minutes/hours it could also be the RTC battery. Replace that, fix the time, and monitor to see if its fixed. If not then it would be mainboard.

FYI: ILO 2.05 is out, if you’re lagging behind, please say your at ILO 1.82 at least. if not upgrade asap. Many issues are corrected in the latter releases.

Good Luck and Happy Friday!
