iLO script changes iLO to use DHCP

Hi,

I have an HPONCFG script that is run on a server after deployment. This script sets the license code, LDAP authentication and sets the iLO name. However, we strictly use static IP addresses for our ILOs. So we use the Onboard Administrator to assign an IP address to a static value for our blade iLOs, deploy the server, and then run the script.

However, the process of setting the iLO name in the script for some reason ALSO changes the IP settings back to DHCP. Is there any way to prevent this? All I want to do is set the iLO name and not change any other parameters in our network settings. Here is my XML file:



































This is the part that sets the iLO name:




As you can see, I make no mention of DHCP anywhere between the delimiters...just the DNS_NAME value.

Any ideas?

Re: iLO script changes iLO to use DHCP

I think I found the answer. I needed to add:

"

to my script in the MOD_NETWORK_SETTING sections.

To me this is a bit lame. I am already NOT use DHCP. Why do I have to tell it to use something I am already not using? Rhetorical question...
