ILo 4 powershell scipting to check ilo and bios firmware levels

Hi All 

I would like to find out if there is any way to automate checking bios and ilo firmware levels on proliant DL380 Gen 8 servers ? 

There are 45 servers that I need to check for a customer to fix a ilo nmi bug and their servers haven't all been discovered under Sim and I'd rather not have to manually log onto each server ilo .

What I would is idealy a script where I could put in the hostname and it would output the firmware levels. 

Thanks for the help

Yes its possible with single powershell cmdlet as described below which takes either one or many iLO server ip's as input and fetches complete set of server information. Later from that information you can get FirmwareInfo which provids both iLO & BIOS firmware version installed on the specificed Server(s).

$info = Get-HPiLOServerInfo -Server <<iLO_IP>> -Username <<user>> -Password <<password>> -DisableCertificateAuthentication -Category FirmwareInfo -Verbose
