It's ILO version 2 and I get this error on both firmware 2.27 and 2.29

Re: hponcfg xml errors when attempting to disable IPMI

From the Lights Out XML scripting sample package it appears that command does not work with iLO2

<RIBCL VERSION="2.0">
   <LOGIN USER_LOGIN="adminname" PASSWORD="password">
      <RIB_INFO MODE="write">
         <MOD_GLOBAL_SETTINGS>
             <!--      iLO 4 - 1.20 or later.                       -->
              <!--      iLO 3 - 1.55 or later.                       -->
              <!--      iLO 2 - None.                                -->
            <IPMI_DCMI_OVER_LAN_ENABLED value="n"/>
         </MOD_GLOBAL_SETTINGS>
      </RIB_INFO>
   </LOGIN>
</RIBCL>

Re: hponcfg xml errors when attempting to disable IPMI

So we can't using hponcfg with xml to make changes on ilo2 blades?

No, the element <IPMI_DCMI_OVER_LAN_ENABLED value="n"/> isn't supported on iLO2

Re: hponcfg xml errors when attempting to disable IPMI

That element was added to ilo2 in 2.23.  When I run the command on < 2.23 I see ipmi option not found, but when I update to 2.27 which should have ipmi, I get the xml_handler error. I got the same error on 2.27 when I tried to add an ilo user.

I can even see the option to disable ipmi in the ilo web interface, I just cant seem to disable it using xml.

Re: hponcfg xml errors when attempting to disable IPMI

the example mod_global_settings is where it states no for iLO2, maybe old text before it was added in 2.23, or maybe the XML just doesn't work for that option on iLO2.  I have passed your error over to the iLO group.

Re: hponcfg xml errors when attempting to disable IPMI

I just used cpqlocfg.exe 4.21 to send the below script to my iLO2 2.29 and it worked.

 

<RIBCL VERSION="2.0">
 <LOGIN USER_LOGIN="adminname" PASSWORD="password">
  <RIB_INFO MODE="write">
   <MOD_GLOBAL_SETTINGS>
    <IPMI_DCMI_OVER_LAN_ENABLED value="n"/>
   </MOD_GLOBAL_SETTINGS>
  </RIB_INFO>
 </LOGIN>
</RIBCL>

 

Could it be something with the hponcfg.exe tool you are using?

I'm using the hponcfg tool that's on the onboard administrator.

I'm seeing the exact same error on ilo4's as well:

Re: hponcfg xml errors when attempting to disable IPMI

Oscar will probably need to know what version of OA your running to see what version of hponcfg is embedded. I checked on of my enclosures and couldn't see a way to get the hponcfg version number

Re: hponcfg xml errors when attempting to disable IPMI

Yes, I need to know the OA version you have.

The HPONCFG on every OA version prior to v4.30 connected to iLOs using SSLv3 protocol.  Well, because of POODLE vulnerability announced 18 months ago, all newer iLO2, iLO3 and iLO4 versions dropped the SSLv3 support.
