Re: how to login to ILO if we forget ILO password, with out down time

Hi,

 

I found from the link you referred that there is one script "Administrator_reset_pw.xml" to reset the password of ILO admin user...I found this from following link...

 

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=18964&prodSeriesId=1146658&swItem=MTX-84d9a19b43b84516ac2d26d01f&prodNameId=1135772&swEnvOID=181&swLang=8&taskId=135&mode=4&idx=1

 

Administrator_reset_pw.xml- Reset the default administrator account password using HPONCFG.

 

 

My Questions:

 

1)What will be the new password for administrator? or can we login with out password using administrator?

 

 

2)Can we use this script to reset the password for Enclouser ILO (ILO On board Administrator)?

Re: how to login to ILO if we forget ILO password, with out down time

Hi

I would like to ask some more questions....

3)Do we need to have valid ILO user and password to run the scripts? So to reset administor , do we need to enter ILO admin password? what is the user of this? since we are reseting the password as we dont know the ILO admin password.


4)can we run the script directlry or is there any format / syntax?

You need to set the new password in the XML file

 

In a CLI session you can send the XML via the enclosure OA. 

 

Using hponcfg you do not need a valid username/password, but the syntax needs to be in the XML file your feeding to iLO

 

Run hponcfg from the command line and you will see the syntax
