Tiny advice to owners of DL360 G8 who have it at home like i do.
DO NOT RESET iLO at 12AM.
When it boots up it will go to full on jet engine mode for 20 seconds or so.
Not great way to wake up your family i can tell you that.
Speaking from experience from 21 hours ago.

    Its not very popular during work hours either, easily drowns out any phone calls within 10 meters :P

    Was the same with older tower model servers from HP.

    I have had people coming down through the corridor when installing at customer location wondering what was going on ;)

    @Voxera I can see why.
    The funny thing is I hear people oh it can't really be that loud. So I decided to record the damn thing as I pulled out one fan to make all of them at max. Then they truly understood the pain.

    @Haxk20 I don’t think a recording really can do the sound justice but it might be a good indicator. :)
