set legacy boot using ilo script

Hi,

I've looked through the iLO 4 Scripting Guide several times and there doesn't seem to be a way to set the boot mode (to "legacy", for our purposes).  Am I missing something?  Is there another way to automate this type of config change?

Re: set legacy boot using ilo script

You can use the HPE RESTful tool to configure the system options and iLO on Gen9 and iLO on Gen8

HPE RESTful Interface Tool http://www8.hp.com/us/en/products/server-software/product-detail.html?oid=7630408#!tab=features

Download link for the tool (select your OS) http://h20565.www2.hpe.com/hpsc/swd/public/readIndex?sp4ts.oid=7630409&ac.admitted=1415623837684.876444892.492883150&lang=en&lang=en&cc=us&cc=us

The syntax you want in interactive mode is

Thanks @Jimmy Vance.  That was very helpful.  I had to type "commit" at the end to apply the changes.
