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

A question from Patrick on how to retrieve license keys:






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.




Reply from Sam:




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