Password Reset - Lights-Out 100i DL180 G6

I just got my hands on a DL180 G6 that I don't have the user/pass for its iLO , I have tried upgrading the iLO firmware, downgrading and still can't log in with the default user/pass...

 

Is there a procedure to reset the iLO on this server to factory?

 

I'll really appreciate your inputs.

 

Thanks.

I have managed to reset the username and password on my DL180 G6

 

Instructions

 

1.       Create a DOS bootable disk (floppy or USB key),

Instructions :http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-security/how-can-i-make-a-ms-dos-boot-disk-on-a-cdusb-for/9fd9067a-d327-4ba5-8aca-0f33501b87a4


2.      Download the IPMItool from this link: http://www.intel.com/design/servers/ipmi/ipmi_tool.htm


3.      Extract the zip to a folder on the bootable USB drive

 

4.      Create a DOS bat file "resetp.bat"  to run 

"ipmitool.exe 20 18 47 03 02 61 64 6d 69 6e 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00" whitout the quotes

 

5.      If you need to reset your user name create another bat file (resetu.bat) with this 

"ipmitool.exe 20 18 45 03 61 64 6d 69 6e 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00" whitout the quotes


6. Boot the server using the bootable USB disk

7. run resetp.bat after server bootup to reset your password

 

8. run resetu.bat after server bootup to reset your password

 

 

Remember to configure your ipmi connection strings on the server bios in order to get access to it....

 

Hope it helps others with the same problem.

The link referenced below: http://www.intel.com/design/servers/ipmi/ipmi_tool.htm does not work. I downloaded the Source Forge ipmiutil software (Ver 3.0.0) and ran it in Windows Server 2012-R2 in a command window and tried the following commands with no luck.

ipmiutil cmd 20 18 47 03 02 61 64 6d 69 6e 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 (set p/w)
ipmiutil cmd 20 18 47 03 01 61 64 6d 69 6e 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 (enable)
ipmiutil cmd 20 18 45 03 61 64 6d 69 6e 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 (reset user name)

I am able to set the ip address of the Lights-Out 100 within the BIOS and browse there but I can not get in with a UserId and password. Where is the passord stored for the Lights-Out 100? If it is in the Lights-Out 100 I will replace it with a new one and put the old one in the fireplace. If it is in the motherboard I will replace that.

Thanks...

Re: Password Reset - Lights-Out 100i DL180 G6

If you are running linux The following page allowed me to reset the password and gain access to the LOM

http://russell.ballestrini.net/how-to-reset-hp-ilo-lights-out-user-and-password-settings-with-ipmitools/ worked for resetting the password.

The guide above is nice because you don't have to have a boot disk, you just boot into linux, run the ipmitool and you're done.

I did get the following error

Could not open device at /dev/ipmi0 or /dev/ipmi/0 or /dev/ipmidev/0: No such file or directory

Which I resolved by running the following. (Didn't even have to reboot afterwards or anything.)

 

[root@machine ~]# modprobe ipmi_msghandler
[root@machine ~]# modprobe ipmi_devintf
[root@machine ~]# modprobe ipmi_si

 

Hope this helps and if by chance Russell Ballestrini reads this. Great guide!
