Looks like that's what it checks.

Could you check in ILO/BIOS and see if maybe you could put the details in there? Or maybe there's some other kind of dependency that conrep needs that's not installed?

Re: Problem with CONREP Utility

i only want to edit/copy the bios settings


i have one dl380 G7 unconfigured - booting with winpe 3.0. And one network share (dl 380 g7 too, with win2k8r2), where the SSSTK from smartstart ver 8.70 is installed.


after booting into winpe 3.0 i copy the hpsstkio.sys into x:\windows\system32\drivers

then using drvload the hpqilo3core.inf


then mapping the network shared folder where conrep resists and using the conrep -s function.


then the server platform is not recognized.


i used the same procedure for a dl380 g4 and it worked - with dl380 g7 - no platform match.


this problem only persists when im using winpe 3.0 ...


i saw when im opening a cmd on the network share server and using conrep the platform is recognized.

Re: Problem with CONREP Utility

To integrate the toolkit into winpe 3.0 take a look at the readme.txt file under the hpdrivers directory in the toolkit 8.70 package. You need at minimum hpsstkio.sys copied to \Windows\system32\drivers along with loading the health and iLO drivers.
