The HP ML110 G7 works great with VMware vSphere 5.0 once the C-States has been modified.
In the following screenshot we can have a glimpse of the Hardware Status of the ML110 G7. We can clearly see that this ML110 G7 with it’s integrate iLO3 controller gives the same information as the more expensive HP Proliant servers.
And such as it’s bigger brothers, if we access the ILO3 Administration Console
and create a dedicate vmware user with Power Controls.
Once this is done we just need to add in the IPMI/ILO Settings for Power Management
And to test the functionality. Now we can use Distributed Power Management on the ML110 G7 Cluster.
The more I test the ML110 G7, the more I like it.
