ILO 2 hponcfg RIBCL error "Minimum password length value exceeded."

I'm trying to configure ILO 2 via hponcfg.exe using a script template. I'm getting the following error message:


STATUS="0x002B"
MESSAGE='Minimum password length value exceeded.'
/>


I'm using the following XML for the /f param:




USER_NAME = "admin2"
USER_LOGIN = "admin2"
PASSWORD = "pass1234">


































What could be wrong? I've tried shortening the password to pass1234 and it still throws this error. I'm using ILO 2 firmware rev 2.01. Server is a DL380 G5.

The actual password has 11 characters. "pass1234" was what I changed it to which also doesn't work.

The minimum password length is a configurable value, try first establishing that value like this:



... I would suggest setting this value on a separate script, once done, retry your original script.

Good luck!

Dude, it's funny. I did try that but it didn't work the first time. Perhaps I'd placed that block in the wrong section or something? Anyway point awarded : D!

Thanks.
