Setup iLo on remote system?

Is there any way to configure iLo on a system remotely? Currently, I have remote desktop access on this Windows 2000 server but wanted to set up iLo with a static ip address.

My fear is that this can only be done within the bios during bootup-
Thanks.

HPONCFG provides a method to configure iLO settings from within an OS session.

take a look

- Download and install the CPQLOCFG.EXE on your client system.
- Download and modify the sample scripts.
- Run the CPQLOCFG program in a batch process or using HP Systems Insight Manager or Insight Manager 7. For detailed instructions on how to use the scripting interface, see the latest User Guide for iLO or RILOE-II.

Re: Setup iLo on remote system?

CPQLOCFG requires a properly set up iLO on the network and valid credentials. In this case HPONCFG needs to be used since it can be done within the context of an OS session on the box.
