iLO 3 and RIBCL

We are using a Perl script to send commands to the iLO via RIBCL, following the instructions in the manual. This works fine on iLO 2 systems, but the new iLO 3 systems completely ignore the fact that I'm sending them anything. I don't even get an error message back. The only configuration difference I can see between the iLO 2 and iLO 3 systems is that the 2's all have the advanced license, while the 3's are all basic. Is this the difference? If not, can anyone point me in a direction to start looking for why this happens? All new servers this year are going to be 3's and we're kind of counting on this working. Any help appreciated!

Yes. You need to make sure your iLO is licensed otherwise nothing will work.

There was a change in the web services in iLO3 so you need an updated script. You can grab the update script from here
