How to Get ILO License Key via Remote Insight Board Command Language (RIBCL)

A question from Patrick on how to retrieve license keys:

 

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

 

All,

 

I need to check if a Blade has a License Key installed (ILO2, ILO3, ILO4) in my customer environment with thousands of Blades. I would like to do that by connecting to the OA using the HPONCFG command and RIBCL or any other OA Command. Is it possible?

 

I know that you can retrieve it via the http://<ilo IP>/ XML?item=cpqkey; however, I need to get all the IP’s of the ILO and for now, it’s not an option.

The following worked on my ILO3 and ILO4 versions ILO2 returned an error so it needs a bit of tuning.

 

hponcfg all  << end_marker

<RIBCL VERSION="2.0">

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

<RIB_INFO MODE="read"><GET_ALL_LICENSES/>

</RIB_INFO>

</LOGIN>

</RIBCL>

end_marker

 

***********

 

Other input?
