Hi Alexander,

You can configure the MP (current name is iLO MP) settings via DHCP protocol. Look at the doc:

"HP Integrity and HP 9000 Integrated Lights-Out Management Processor Operations Guide"

http://www.docs.hp.com/en/5971-4274_iLO_ops/5971-4274_iLO_ops.pdf

Hi

I am looking at doing more than just the IP, I would like to be able to modify all the settings available via the menu interface via a program

OK. After setting IP parameters, you can configure all other via WEB browser. Read the doc mentioned above.

Re: Configuring 128 RX box

Hi

I have read the document above and all the proceedures are manual procedures, with out me writing a perl script to access the browser, there doesn't seem to be a xml interface nor does there seem to be any programs to run from dos or linux to manipulate the MP config from the machine.

I am looking at not having to open all the machine individually with a broswer.

You may use the LDAP option for iLO/MP to do some remote and perhaps automated administration. See the manual in Zygmunt Krawczyks posting.

Hope this helps!

Re: Configuring 128 RX box

Hi

Hadn't thought about that, but after checking the manual, it seems to be only for user admin


-- cut from pdf --
Features Supported by Directory Integration
MP Directory Services functionality enables you to:
â ¢ Authenticate users from a shared, consolidated, scalable user database.
â ¢ Control user privileges (authorization) using the directory service.
â ¢ Use roles in the directory service for group-level administration of MP and MP users.
Installing Directory Services for MP requires extending the directory schema. A Schema Administrator must
complete extending the schema.
The local user database is retained. You can decide not to use directories, use a combination of directories and
local accounts, or use directories exclusively for authentication.
