What is the Fastest Way to Change the BL460c Setting from EUFI to Legacy Mode?

Howdy!

 

We had a great question from Arno:

 

*****************************

 

800 new BL460c Gen9 servers rolled in the datacenter, all set to UEFI. (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface)

 

Looking for the most suited way to do this in a large (Linux) way.

No OS on the Blades currently.

 

Any advice would be welcome.

Hiro came back with a script that he has used to achieve this:

Hi Arno,

 

I think the best way is using HP OneView. 

 

You can also use RIBCL (Remote Insight Board Command Language) via OA (Oboard Administrator).

 

  1. connect OA using SSH client.
  2. copy below.

 

HPONCFG ALL  << end_marker

<RIBCL VERSION="2.0">

<LOGIN USER_LOGIN="adminname" PASSWORD="password">

   <SERVER_INFO MODE="write">

    <!-- Possible Values: LEGACY or UEFI -->

    <SET_PENDING_BOOT_MODE VALUE="LEGACY"/>

   </SERVER_INFO>

</LOGIN>

</RIBCL>

end_marker

 

 

Hope this helps.
