Configure NTP on iLO via HPE Scripting Tools for Windows PowerShell

In order to keep synchronize iLO time with NTP server or time server, you have to enable NTP configuration and add proper NTP server address. Configuring NTP on more than one server is a difficult task for any administrator, because you have to do it via iLO command line or web based GUI manually. At this post I want to share an example for NTP configuration as a PowerShell script.

Corruption in dlmalloc 0

ESXi Fails with “Corruption in dlmalloc” on HPE Server

“Corruption in dlmalloc” issue occurs because multiple esxcfg-dumppart threads attempt to free memory which has been used for configuring the dump partition. Thread A checks if there are entries to be freed and proceeds to free them, while within the same time frame, Thread B is also attempting to free the same entries.
Based on VMware KB2147888, this issue is resolved on ESXi 6 U3. But why issue is happening on ESXi 6 U3 or ESXi 6.5 U1 when they are installed on HPE ProLiant servers?

HPE Management Component Pack (MCP)

HPE Management Component Pack or HPE MCP provides agent software for use on community-supported distributions. The MCP (unlike the SPP) does not provide drivers and firmware (firmware is provided via HPSUM, and drivers are provided by the distribution vendors). The Linux Service Pack for ProLiant provides updated drivers and agent software for use on RedHat Linux and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server.
