Console port configuration

Hello All,

 

In our work we have many Hp Servers (i.e. rx2660, rx6660, rp3410, rp3440 .. )

I sometimes would like to connect to Console Port (iLO) of any of these servers, but i don't know the configuration of it (i.e. IP add, Subnet Mask, .. )

the only way i know is to connect to Serial Port.

 

So my question is: 

Is there a way to get the configuration of this console port (iLO) through command line ...

I expect that there should be a way that root user can get some information about the IP of this port .. is this correct ??

 

Thanks for your help.

Re: Console port configuration

On some models this information is listed at system management homepage.


Hope this helps!

Re: Console port configuration

... and the script that produces the information for SMH is apparently /opt/hpsmh/data/htdocs/comppage/getMPInfo.cgi.

If you run it on the command line, you should get a HTML output that includes the IP address of the iLO MP, like this:

 

parent.frames.CHPAppletFrame.chpMiscData.RIBName = "Unknown";
parent.frames.CHPAppletFrame.chpMiscData.RIBLink = "https://11.22.33.44";

 

If your system has a recent enough version of SMH installed, this command might work too:

/opt/propplus/bin/cprop -summary -c "Management Processor"

Re: Console port configuration

Thanks sooo much for your help.

 

Actually i didn't find the getMPInfo.cgi file on my Servers .. 

 

So do you think it could be possible to download this file only from some where and then we can use it or i have to install something ?

 

Thanks for your time ..

Re: Console port configuration

I investigated a bit further, and the getMPInfo.cgi provides the information (or exists!) in only certain SMH versions.

If the version is too old, getMPInfo.cgi does not exist; if the version is too new, it will not provide the information (but the cprop command might be available instead).

 

So updating your SMH might help. You can download an updated version here:
