HP iLO Integrated Remote Control Java Web Start App

I love that I can power on my HP DL380 server remotely using the iLO feature (it’s upstairs in my office). I hadn’t yet played with the ‘Integrated Remote Control’ yet though which is available from a link from the iLO home page. The Java Web Start version runs ok from Firefox which allows you to watch the start up process remotely and interact with the server startup menus.

After ESXi has completed booting, apparently you need an additional license to continue to use it past that point. At this point after ESXi there’s not much you can do with the server anyway so this is not a big deal (since interacting with ESXi is all via the web app).
