HP Lights Out

Not last week

I know I promised you a entry last week regarding the HP Lights-Out management processor and here it is a little on the late side.

Before I start I must say this may not and most likely isn’t the correct way to do things but I have found that they do work.

To active an select or advanced evaluation license

  • I spent two days on the phone with HP and we came up with nothing so I decided to plug one the network cards into the network to see what would happen if I type in the activation license again and to may surprise and great joy it worked.

If the virtual KVM doesn’t load

  • I found that if you try and use JRE1.6 (Jave runtime environment) you get errors as it is missing some components. The easiest way around this problem was to downgrade (uninstall and install) JRE1.5 which seems to do the trick.

After the I had worked out these problems I managed to mount my CDROM on my local machine to the server across the networkand install windows on the server without leaving my desk. 🙂

That is all I have found so far and this is only lo100i cards not the vasily more impressive ilo2 cards

When I find out some more I shall add it in another post and please let me know if you find any of this useful

On other things I entered a closed super draft Magic: The Gathering tournament using the time spiral set. I was given a sealed deck and 3 boosters in draft rules you take 2 cards out of the booster and pass the remaining cards to the person sat next to you can so on until there are no cards left. you still end up with 15 cards from the booster packs and you can select the some nice cards in the other booster rather than use pick possible 8 cards from your booster you can use and wasting the rest. In the tournament the starting round was round robin with two groups with the top two from each group go into the final.

I didn’t make it into the semi with a rubbish performance of won 1 – drew 1 and lost 3, but I had a good night and would love to do it again.

the next time I should perform alot better.

I shall write more next week about something

Welcome (again)

Well I have decided to complete wipe this site clean yet again. So it is another blank page. I have been at my new job for the last 3 weeks and can say I am completely enjoying the challenge of a new position.

So far I have been show off Lights Out of the DL140 G3 machine I have been building. These machines use lo100i cards which are cut down versions of the ilo cards but they seem equaly impressive. I shall create a post of all the problems I have encountered and I how I go around them so other people need not go through the same pain I have trying to get them to work.

I have also started playing Magic the Gathering in one tornament, I really sucked and lost all my matches and relaised that just playing a stock deck is not a good idea so I will attempting to improve my deck so I can actually win some matches.

That is all I have been doing in the last 3 weeks bar iceskating which I am trying to learn the icehockey stop with a little bit of success.

I am off now to spend an evening with my wife. I shall write about the HP lights out sometime next week.
