Disabling Hyperthreading on multiple servers

I'd like to disable hyperthreading on a load of BL30p blades and was wondering if there might be an easier way to do this without logging onto each server one at a time. Any help would be gratefully received.

You can use the SmartStart Scripting Toolkit utilties to change the setting

http://www.hp.com/servers/sstoolkit

the "conrep" utility is used to change system ROM settings

Re: Disabling Hyperthreading on multiple servers

Thanks for the quick response. My scripting skills arent the best and i've tried to use the conrep utility however i dont know if it is correct "conrep -s" creates the xml file that you can amend and reuse to change the ROM settings. Is this the case ?

Stacey,
Since you have some BL30 blades you may already be using the HP RDP kit. One of the options in the HP RDP kit is being able to capture and deploy BIOS configurations.

You could configure one server for the desired configuration you want on multiple servers, and then run a RDP job to capture it. Then you could deploy this job to all of the servers you wish this to use this configuration.
