Presenting OpenVMS Hostname to OA in Blade System.

I am running OpenVMS 8.3-1H1 on BL860c's in a c7000 enclosure. The blades are at the most current f/w, VC's at 2.01, and OA's at 2.32.
In the OA, "Device Bays" screen, the BL860's show the default descriptions, i.e. "BL860c - ".

I would like this field to indicate the actual host name and OS, however it has been indicated to me that the OA gets the information from the iLO, and that the Host System "Name", "OS", etc., can only be passed to the iLO from the OS level. Can anyone tell me what utility/command I use to pass the system information to the iLO.

Currently the iLO shows

MP:CM> ID

ID

System Information Menu:
T - Asset Tag Information
H - Host System Configuration
P - SNMP Contact Person
S - SNMP Server Information

Enter menu item or [Q] to Quit: h

Host System Configuration:

Thanks

Dave.
