SCCM OSD ProLiant Deployment (HPONCFG.EXE)


I'm having difficulty deploying a ProLiant DL380 G7 using the ConfigMgr 'HP ProLiant Server OS Deployment' pack.

I'm deploying Windows Svr 2008 R2 (RTM) so am using the template Task Sequence with the 'HP ProLiant Server OSD SSTK 86 Boot Image (x64)' Boot image.

I'm using ConfigMgr 2007 SP2 R3, specifically the stage the deployment is failing on is the iLO configuration which uses the HPONCFG.exe utility, it appears the drivers in the WinPE boot image are not there or correct as when I attempt to run the utility from WinPE (F8 command prompt) I get the following error:

ERROR: Failure when tring to get the firmware version information

The version of the tool is:
HPONCFG RILOE-II/iLO setup and configuration utility

pretty sure the xml iLO configuration file I've generated is correct, have attached for reference anyway.. (this is a basic sample/template while I test functionality..)

(It I disable this iLO config step the rest of the deployment works great..)

Any ideas on what the problem is or what drivers I need?

We are out of the office until January 4. I would suggest if you need a quicker reply, please contact HP Support by looking at the support section in the HP OSD User Guide.
