Issues with scripting boot via ILO

Trying to create a script to boot multiple servers via ilo (multible versions of ilo) using the scriots bellow. But when I run it I get the following error:


IP Address is: server1-oob
SIO_connect failure.
9344:error:0200274C:system library:connect:reason(1868):.\crypto\sio\s_sock.c:606:host=server1-oob:443
9344:error:10065068::lib(16) :SIO_CONNECT:connect error:.\crypto\sio\s_sock.c:608:
CPQLOCFG.EXE: ERROR: SIO_connect:reason(10060).

What can cause this?

There is no valid ssl certificats on the ilo so there is allways a warning about this ehen conencting via a browser.







@echo off
set iLO_uN=root set iLO_PW=rootpass set iLO_XML=Set_Host_Power.xml IF NOT EXIST .\LOGS MKDIR .\LOGS for %%i in ( server1-oob ) do ( CPQLOCFG.EXE -s %%i -f %iLO_XML% -u %iLO_uN% -p %iLO_PW% )

Re: Issues with scripting boot via ILO

Using your batch file, I was able to turn an iLO4  system off and on.


I used cpqlocfg.exe version 4.00, and version 4 of the iLO XML scripting samples.

Re: Issues with scripting boot via ILO


Apparently, CPQLOCFG.exe is failing to establish a TCP connection to iLO port 443.  See error Windows Socket error 10060 below:




Connection timed out.

A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or the established connection failed because the connected host has failed to respond.



Are your iLOs configured to listen to a port other than 443 for HTTPS?

Re: Issues with scripting boot via ILO

well the solution was fairly easy, I had put the script on a server that did not have acces to the ILO network
