accessing a server via SSH through ilo – dumping information/current state

I’m having to frequently access servers via ilo – ssh only, no web interface. Am I meant to be able to bring a server back up through just this tool? Or utilize others like ipmtool to be able to do things? Similarly when the server’s stuck in boot, how can I tell from this interface? So far all I can tel is how to power on/off, not obtain any useful information from the server.
There seems to be various syntax as well, one where I can go into map1, another with admin1.
Also although there is a power command, there is no view status option that I’m aware of.

Can I get advice, or a point to the right direction to find out this information?
