Configure ILO on DL380G4

help please,
How can I assign a static IP address and add a new user to my ILO without reboot the server to do this after the POST ?
Currently, it is connected to our server vlan without DHCP server exist. And the current status showing 0.0.0.0
I am using Windows 2003 Server. PSP 7.60 deployed.

Thanks

Hi,
You can use
HP Lights-Out Online Configuration Utility
http://h18000.www1.hp.com/support/files/server/us/download/24575.html
and
"Mod_Network_Settings.xml - Change the Lights-Out device Network Settings" script from HP Lights-Out XML Scripting Sample for Windows

>>and add a new user
Use
Add_User.xml - Add a user to the Lights-Out device user database script from scripting samples

Re: Configure ILO on DL380G4

Thanks Igor,

I got those xml and cpqlocfg.exe on hand now. How can I retrieve the current network settings and user account and deploy new network settings and new user account on a local ILO ?

Re: Configure ILO on DL380G4

One more thing, those server I am trying to do is located in a remote server. How can I push a new user account to the target ILO without having the current credentials ?

You don't need current network settings and generally speaking you even don't need current credentials .

In order to run scripts you need to write username (default username "Administrator", capital "A") and password (default password is random for each server and you can find password on paper label when you receive server) in XML files.

If you don't know password:
Extract windows-LOsamplescripts2.10.0-1.zip file to \\server\c$\Program Files\HP\hponcfg folder (where you installed HP Lights-Out Online Configuration Utility)
1) Run
hponcfg.exe /f Administrator_reset_pw.xml
this step will reset ILO password for user "Administrator" to word "password"

2) To add new user run
hponcfg.exe /f Add_User.xml
Before run this step edit Add_User.xml:
change string
and change
ADD_USER
USER_NAME="User"
USER_LOGIN="username"
PASSWORD="password">
to define user you want to add

3) To change IP address run
hponcfg.exe /f Mod_Network_Settings.xml
Before run this step change following values in Mod_Network_Settings.xml file
change string




4) run hponcfg.exe /f Reset_RIB.xml to restart ILO

It's all.

I usually connect to server with RDP (remote desktop) and run these commands but generally speaking I think you can run these commands for remote server by using -s parameter.
