Cannot upgrade iLO firmware using perl XML scripting utils - locfg.pl & Update_Firmware.xml

Hi,

We have several Proliant DL360 G4p in our labs, all of them are running several
different versions of iLO. We have decided to upgrade the firmware on all these
iLOs to the latest, v1.89. I would prefer to do the upgrade process using command
line approach, so that we could probably write some wrapper over these HP
scripts and perform batch upgrades.

1)

I used the following command and also enclosing part of the output.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Update_Firmware.xml
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

<"user login and password here">







root# perl locfg.pl -s 192.188.11.186 -f Update_Firmware.xml <--- command
~~~~~~

output: (including errors only)
~~~~~~~~

Malformed UTF-8 character (unexpected end of string) at /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.0/IO/Socket/SSL.pm line 232, line 31.



STATUS="0x0001"
MESSAGE='Syntax error: Line #0: syntax error near "LOGIN" in the line: ""'
/>


---------------------------------------------------------------------------

2)
Also, I observed that I am not able to connect to iLO ftp, if the iLO is working
normally. Is it that ftp will be enabled only if the iLO is not working or in
some blocked state (due to failed firmware upgrades etc.)

If ftp works all the time, I can use this route as well.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

I tried to upgrade the firmware using Web Login session and it worked.
I would really like the command line upgrade to be working, to help perform
batch upgrades. Withouth this, it is nearly impossible to work on a large number
of iLOs.

Thanks for your time

Appreciate if any one can give some inputs on this

Hi All,

If any one has any info on this, could you please let me know.

I would really like to do it programmatically using scripts, rather than doing one by one through Web Login

Thanks
