iLO allows me to power cycle my server, re-install the operating system,
access the BIOS, access the console, etc ... all operating system
independent (or with no operating system installed at all) ... the only
'hands on' I need is, as you put it, to replace hardware that might go
wrong, but, for instance, with 'just a serial console', like the non-HP
servers, I have to get a remote tech to power cycle whenever the deadlocks
I'm experiencing right now happen ... with iLO, I login to the iLO CLI,
and tell the server to reboot itself ...
