    HP Integrated Lights-Out 2 (iLO 2) Shared Network Port > Can I use this port as a ethernet port to load balance traffic on both NIC's? Or this port is just for remote admin purpose for managing this server? I went through document @ HP for this. But they did not menion it clearly. Anybody tried this before ? We have HP ProLiant 350 series tower server.

    Best I know (99.44%), it is dedicated to the iLO function (hard-wired?). I used to work for that outfit and that was my understanding per discussions w/ a Systems Engineer or two when I was retiring old servers / specifying new ones.

    The term "shared" is intriguing so I could be all wrong if this is the latest and greatest version.

    Anything in the BIOS settings?
    Cheers,

      I don't think you can use the iLO port for anything else but administration.
      If you ever scan the address you gave to this port, you will see that only three ports are open: 22 (SSH), 80 (HTTP) and 443 (HTTPS). Meaning, it is unusable for anything else.
      And if you contact it through browser, you'll get the administrative web site.

              Don't know what kind of mathematically system y'all use over there but in Excel:

              =10*30/2+50/2-0.56 returns 174.44

              Interested how you made that into 0.9944 ???

                You need to do it in series
                =(((10*30/2)+50)/2)-0.56

                  Isn't math the universal language? Rules of precedence are well established. Without the parens, this is 174.44. With the parens it is 99.44. Both are incorrect.

                  The answer is 0.9944

                    OK, technically you are correct.
                    But in the verbal it works fine if the "percent" is assumed:
                    "Ten times thirty divided by two plus fifty divided by two minus point fifty-six equals ninety-nine point forty-four (percent)"


                    PS - only us geeks would discuss something like this..
                    PPS - I though love was the universal language...

                      So, the correct forumla (sic):

                      ((((10*30/2)+50)/2)-0.56)/100

                      Although it could equally be expressed:

                      ((4*100)-2.24)/400

                        I guess the calculations put forth thus far do not "float" for me (the Ivory soap claim associated w/ that original 99.44% value).

                          I am amazed. Did nobody look at my division signs?? \ and NOT /

                          Sorry Sco, this thread has gone badly but it is interesting that 1+1=10
                          1 1 was a racehorse.
                          2 2 was 1 2.

                              Only thing I know a "\" to mean in a mathematical sense is either integer division (only in programming, not in mathematical symbology) or matrix "left division". In your equation, regardless of precedence, I'm not seeing a difference in "/" vs. "\". I'm obviously missing something.

                              I was meaning some cute equation that manipulated your list of port numbers to come up w/ 99.44%

                              I'll stand down on the stuff for a while. Hopefully the OP figured out the iLO port wasn't going to work early on in the thread.
