Re: BL860 and Onboard administrator

You should get access to the OA and connect to the iLO web interface and change from there. The OA to iLO access is certificate based, so no password is needed.

Hope this helps!

Re: BL860 and Onboard administrator

If you don't have access to OA, you even don't have (physical) access to the blade?

Downtime??? Not needed.

Hope this helps!

Re: BL860 and Onboard administrator

The default PW is printet on the tab of the server, wich you can pull out, just like the s/n tabs on proliants.

Hint (Don't tell anybody):
same user/pw as on the MP.

Re: BL860 and Onboard administrator

arrh, sorry mis-read you question :(

log on to the Ilo
in the administartion tab, you can change passwords, create new accounts etc.

on the BL860. Like on all other itanium boxes. you can change the MP password, from the mp or EFI.

I don't have access to BL860 currently.
But if you login, and look around, you should be able to find it within 5 minutes.
