ILO IP address & Password Reset Question

Is there anyway to find out what the ILO IP address is on a server and resetting the ILO password without rebooting the server??

I've just been handed a new task and there was no proper documentation done by the previous engineer.

Re: ILO IP address & Password Reset Question

Hi Tan,

Try this!!!!!

To reset Administrator Password on iLO:

1. Ensure that SNMP is installed because it was a prerequisite for HP Insight Management Agents.
2. Ensure that HP Insight Management Agents are installed.

Unzip the attached Riloreset.zip file to folder c:\hp\ilo.

Extract the file Administrator_reset_pw.xml from c:\hp\ilo\Hponcfg.zip to the c:\hp\ilo folder.

Edit the file with the username you would like to reset and also edit the PASSWORD value="newpass123456" to the new password.

Than go to command prompt to folder c:\hp\ilo and run the following command:
HPONCFG.exe /f Administrator_reset_pw.xml /l log.txt > output.txt

We don't require the old password to reset the account.

For additional information please read the PDF file in the attached zip file.

Hope this works!!!!!

Hi Tan,

There are 2 ways to find it:

1. You can determine the iLO IP address using iLO RBSU. now this needs a reboot.

2. So I think this is the reliable way. Through system management homepage.

Hope this answers!!!!!
