In keeping with HP's image, this is slapdash, poorly laid out, and barely functional. Can you use it to manage a system via iLO? Yes... but barely. Why HP figured using a keyboard outside of the system default was a good idea is beyond me. I assume it's just like all of HP's other choices in which they decide that their own methods are better than the tested and proven methods used elsewhere. Unless I find myself in a desperate situation and needing console access to a blade in a C7000 in a remote DC and all I have is my Android.... I won't be using this app.
Unusable Keyboard The keyboard is apparently baked into the app and can't be switched. The buttons are so small they don't have labels. Totally unusable. (LG G4)
Good idea, bad implementation What is that awful keyboard? Iy's such a pain to type a real password. The mouse implementation is bad as well. Useless on a phone. Take 5 random rdp apps and you'll see how a mouse is supposed to work on a touch device. So, the remote console is pretty useless. And the iLO web page can be accessed the same in a web browser. Take a look at Synology mobile apps to see a job well done.
Would be a great idea if it worked Fired up the ilo and attempted to get to the remote console, only to have it error every time. I've submitted the error. It's a RuntimeException because it can't start the activity due to a NullPointerException bubbled up from com.hp.essn.iss.ilo.iec.spa.SPAKeyboard.Init. Fix the error and I'll try again.
Why, oh why did they have to replace the great Android keyboard functionality with that ... that steaming pile of random keys? It effectively makes the remote console read only. Terrible design, horrible implementation. NEW: Does not connect to remite console on Android 7 anymore. USELESS.
App crashes on launching remote console The app crashes every time I try to launch the remote console. Which is really the only reason I installed the app in the first place. If I wanted to access the Web interface I'd do it through the native browser.
