About the appliance maintenance console

The appliance maintenance console is an important tool for troubleshooting appliance issues when the HPE OneView UI is not available.

The appliance maintenance console, shown in the example, provides a limited set of administrative commands that might be required when you cannot access the web user interface (UI) of the appliance.

Example of the appliance maintenance console main menu

In the upper left of most appliance maintenance console screens, the local appliance is identified by its host name.

The appliance maintenance console displays an icon and a message about the state of the appliance indicating few actions such as:

  • Normal operation.

  • Appliance is offline.

  • Appliance is being updated.

  • Appliance is starting up, shutting down, restarting, or temporarily unavailable.

  • Appliance is being restored from a backup file.

  • Appliance is being reset to factory default settings.
