HPE ProLiant DL20 Gen10 Plus installation

This section describes how to install Defender for IoT software on the HPE ProLiant DL20 Gen10 Plus appliance.

Installation includes:

  • Enabling remote access and updating the default administrator password
  • Configuring iLO port on network port 1
  • Configuring BIOS and RAID1 settings
  • Installing Defender for IoT software

Note

Installation procedures are only relevant if you need to re-install software on a pre-configured device, or if you buy your own hardware and configure the appliance yourself.

Enable remote access and update the password

Use the following procedure to set up network options and update the default password.

To enable and update the password:

  1. Connect a screen, and a keyboard to the HPE appliance, turn on the appliance, and press F9.

Install iLO remotely from a virtual drive

This procedure describes how to install iLO software remotely from a virtual drive.

Before installing the iLO software, we recommend changing the iLO idle connection timeout setting to infinite, as the installation might take longer than the 30 minutes it is set to by default, depending on your network connection and if the sensor is in a remote location.

To change the iLO idle connection timeout settings:

  1. Sign in to the iLO console, and go to Overview on the top menu.

  2. On the left, select Security, and then select Access settings from the top menu.

  3. Select the pencil icon next to iLO and then select Show advanced settings.

  4. On the Idle connection timeout row, select the triangle icon to open the timeout options, and then select Infinite.

Continue the iLO installation with the following steps.

To install sensor software with iLO:

  1. When signed into the iLO console, select the servers' screen on the bottom left.

  2. Select HTML5 Console.

  3. In the console, select the Virtual media CD icon on the right, and choose the CD/DVD option.

  4. Select Local ISO file.

  5. In the dialog box, choose the Defender for IoT sensor installation ISO file.

  6. Go to the left menu icon, select Power, and then select Reset.

  7. The appliance will restart, and run the sensor installation process.

Install Defender for IoT software on the HPE ProLiant DL20 Gen10 Plus

This procedure describes how to install Defender for IoT software on the HPE ProLiant DL20 Gen10 Plus.

The installation process takes about 20 minutes. After the installation, the system is restarted several times.

To install Defender for IoT software:

  1. Connect the screen and keyboard to the appliance, and then connect to the CLI.

  2. Connect an external CD or disk-on-key that contains the software you downloaded from the Azure portal.

  3. Start the appliance.

  4. Continue by installing your Defender for IoT software. For more information, see Defender for IoT software installation.
