DL160 G6. How to enable USB remotely

Hi,

I accidentally disabled USB in bios following a workaround to fix a problem I had. After that, I discovered ILO uses USB emulation for Keyboard and mouse, so now I have no way to re-enable it again.

 

Is there any way I can re-enable the USB or reset to factory settings remotely?

 

Thanks in advance.

If you can access the host OS remotely you can use the "conrep" utility to reset the SUB settings in the ROM. Download the HP Scripting toolkit for Linux or Windows and unpack the archive.

The DL160 G6 needs a helper file that is included in the conrep_xml directory.

 

Save the current ROM settings to a file called romdata.dat, find the section on USB and enable, then reload the file back into the ROM and reboot the system.

 

The syntax is

 

Save curret config:

conrep -s -f romdata.dat -x conrepDL160G6-SL160zG6_20100723.xml

 

Load changes:

conrep -l -f romdata.dat -x conrepDL160G6-SL160zG6_20100723.xml

Re: DL160 G6. How to enable USB remotely

Hi,
I saved the current settings, but it seems the romdata.dat file is empty after saving the details. This is the content:

 

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!--generated by conrep version 3.50-->
<Conrep version="3.50" originating_platform="" originating_family="" originating_romdate="" originating_processor_manufacturer="unknown"/>

 

Maybe wrong template? It seems the correct one, or at least the only one which says DL160G6.

doesn't appear it is finding the companion .xml file. drop it in the same directory as conrep, there is also a conrep.xml that needs to be in the same directory as conrep

Re: DL160 G6. How to enable USB remotely

Hi,

it worked.

 

The problem was I didn't copied the hpsstkio.sys file to c:\windows\system32\drivers\hpsstkio.sys, so the driver wasn't loaded.

 

Thanks for your help!
