Remote OA Scripting

Hi Folks,

Just wondering if there is a tool available to remotely query the Blade OAs, along the same line that iLOs have RIBCL over port 443.

I have been asked if its possible to to do some scripted daily checks on our blades including "can I log into the OA with Account 'xxx'" etc.

Cheers

This would be the document to look for.

Re: Remote OA Scripting

Hi Jarkko,

Thanks for the reply. From reading this guide, I believe it is aimed at interactive SSH Sessions.

What I am looking for is something (perhaps with a tool) where I can go here's an in-file, and here's where the out-file goes, Much like hponcfg does for iLO.

At the moment scripting interactive SSH sessions is not an option :(

Re: Remote OA Scripting

There is a script mode in OA too. Is that mentioned in the document?

Re: Remote OA Scripting

Not from what I can see Jarkko.

Are you thinking more of the configuration scripts you can dump/upload when already logged into the OA? :)

Re: Remote OA Scripting

There isnt a tool I'm aware of.
Other than SSH there is Telnet access.
Or you could connect up an OA serial connection to a server and access it that way?
It would not suprise if the remote ILO tools would work on the OA, for some commands.

What actually are you trying to enquire? You may find some of the information is available thru the iLO port in a blade.

Re: Remote OA Scripting

Hi Ben,

I use a couple methods for pulling info from my enclosures.

PLINK is a tool for establishing and using ssh connections. It's available here:
http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/download.html

TST10 is a tool for establishing telnet connections and reading commands from an input file. You can get it here:

Hope that helps, good luck!
