Nutanix on HPE ® ProLiant ® 5. HPE ProLiant Best Practices | 15 5. HPE ProLiant Best Practices The following best practices apply to HPE ProLiant systems. Perform all firmware, BIOS, and iLO upgrades using LCM in Prism. The following table summarizes where you perform various tasks in HPE ProLiant on Nutanix deployments. Basic hardware monitoring consists of simple values such as system performance and system alerts. Basic hardware management involves tasks such as simple server restarts. Advanced management and logging monitors values such as fan speed, temperature, or detailed hardware boot logs. You perform these tasks in the Prism web interface, in the hypervisor interface, or directly in the iLO. Table 2: Management Responsibilities Responsibilities Prism Hypervisor iLO Basic hardware monitoring and alerts X X X Basic hardware management X X Advanced hardware management and logs X NICs connect to two separate ToR switches. A separate OOB connection to the dedicated iLO connector port provides access to iLO for management. Administrators can create this connection either through a dedicated set of management switches or through the same ToR switch that the 10 or 25 GbE ports use. Nutanix recommends using a separate OOB management network for fault tolerance and high availability.
