HPE Integrated Lights-Out (iLO)

What is HPE iLO ?

HPE Integrated Lights-Out (iLO) is a proprietary management technology built into HPE products that allows for remote control access to ProLiant servers, even without being connected to the network (out-of-band management). HPE Integrated Lights-Out (iLO) automates system provisioning and firmware updates, monitors server health, and enables troubleshooting.

Why Should You Use the HPE iLO Connector?

The HPE iLO connector provides visibility into HPE servers in your environment. You can use this visibility to:

  • ensure HPE servers are managed per your security policies

  • ensure HPE servers are running the latest security tools

How Does This Connector Work?

Lucidum executes read-only requests to the HPE iLO REST API and ingests only meta-data about HPE iLO devices. Lucidum does not retrieve any data stored on your assets.
