Find MP IP address from HP-UX

Hi All,

is there any option available to find the MP IP address from HP-UX Operating System.

 

HP -UX Verison is B.11.11

HP Server model is rp7410

 

I believe cprop & CIMUtil commands are only for 11.31 & 11.23

The system chassis has a plastic tab that shows you the product name, serial number and MP default host name, I think. For instance, the MP host name would be  somethng like mp0012a234b0ab. If you have not changed its name, you may be able to find its IP address with the nslookup command, nslookup  mp0012a234b0ab.xxx.xxx.com.

No way, connect to serial and get/set it.

 

The default is just 127.0.0.1


Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Re: Find MP IP address from HP-UX

11.11 and the rp7410 will not provide the MP information. You must connect a working serial terminal running at 9600 baud. This may be quite difficult since dumb terminals are hard to find in modern data centers and laptops have dumped the serial port. You'll need several components to make the connection work on a laptop:

 

- USB to serial adapter

- 9pin-9pin serial cable

- 9pin null modem adapter

- F-F 9pin gender fixer

- M-M 9pin gender fixer

 

And most important, the 25pin "W" cable, also known as the 3 headed snake cable that is shipped with the rp7410. The W cable has 3 pin connectors for Console, UPS and Remote usage. Use the Console connector.

 

To wake up the MP port, type ctrl-b to get the login prompt. The default login is Admin and Admin. You may have to hard reset the card (hold reset button on the card down for 10 seconds) if no one knows the custom login for the MP card.

Re: Find MP IP address from HP-UX

For most Integrity servers you can get the MP address from the system management homepage. Current servers have a boot menu entry to set/get this address too.

 

if you have sfm installed try :

 

#/opt/sfm/bin/CIMUtil -e root/cimv2 HP_ManagementProcessor

 

example :

 

#/opt/sfm/bin/CIMUtil -e root/cimv2 HP_ManagementProcessor  
 Instance 0 :  
 UniqueIdentifier : 0.19.33.124.117.193  
 ControllerType : 3  
 OtherControllerType :  
 IPAddress : 10.10.11.250 <------ MP IP  
 URL : http://10.10.11.250 <------ MP IP  
 Dedicated : 14  
 CreationClassName : HP_ManagementProcessor  
 Name : Management Processor  
 EnabledState : 2  
 OperationalStatus : 2  

 

otherwise, you can connect to serial port and configure MP, guide:

Re: Find MP IP address from HP-UX

As said earlier, for the rp7410 you need the serial connection.


Hope this helps!
