Lights-Out 100c


I have a Proliant DL120 with a Lights-Out 100c installed. I changed the username on the only active admin account on the Lights-out card and now i cannot log in. I know the password but must have made a typing error on the user name. I can log in as Operator but not as an administrator. I have tried HPONCFG and this does not see the card. Can anyone please tell me how to reset the username and password on these cards.

Hi Stuart

Hponcfg will not reset the password on LO100. Need to use the IPMI tool to reset the password . Follw the steps below

1) Create a DOS bootable disk (floppy or USB key)
2) Download the IPMItool from this link:
3) Copy the IPMItool.exe to the bootable disk
4) Boot the server using the bootable disk
5) Run "ipmitool.exe 20 18 47 03 02 61 64 6d 69 6e 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00"
6) Now your password should reset back to "admin"

Note: This tool doesn't reset your default username. You need to use/remember the new username that you changed it to.

To reset the User name try Upgrading or downgrading the Firmware to the LIghts out 100

Hpe this works :)
