Okay, excuse me for being dense here, but I just want to make sure that
I'm not going to regret upgrading to iLO-2 ...
Accessing iLO-2 through the web browser, and starting up the Remote
Console within the web browser (ie. getting the Java one) will still give
me all the features (BIOS and Operating System console) that I'm getting
out of iLO-1 right now ... its only if I want/need to go in through SSH
will I no longer be able to do this ...
Is that correct?
If so, is there an upgrade I can put onto my new server to get iLO-2? Or
will that only be available on new servers? The 'environment stuff'
really has me intrigued, and I haven't put anything critical onto that
server yet ...
As is expected, going to:
I'm finding all the Linux/Windows/Netware stuff ...
