Configure the iLO setting for power management in ESXi

One of vSphere’s energy-saving features is Distributed Power Management. With the release of VMware vSphere 4.1, administrators can now add a vendor-specific option to add the HP Integrated Lights-Out controller (iLO) to the properties of a host server. It’s only available within a host managed by vCenter because it’s a licensed feature that comes with a VMware Distributed Resource Scheduler (DRS) cluster. This is why a free ESXi installation does not display this option in the host software configuration section.

  1. Great Post Rik!

    I was actually looking for this the other day when I got my DL365’s in. I love iLO! and the fact that VMware takes advantage of it is awesome.
