Access ILO2

We are moved from location and we have new IP Numbers. We moved server but forgot to re-config the ILO2 board. So we can's access it anymore.

When boot server and press F8 ILO2 is asking a password? never use that, so unknown by me, Even the label with password will not work.

How to access or reset the ILO2 board?

Thanks in advance.

What should work.

Turn it off.
Lift the lid and look at the switch setting diagram on the underside.
Set the reset admin password switch on.
Turn it on.
Use any text as the password.
Change the password in admin properties
Turn it off.
Turn the switch off.
Put the lid back on.

Re: Access ILO2

Once you change the password using the switch method, you also might want to change the option in the iLO settings that require a password for iLO RBSU access.

If your system has the PSP installed, you can change the admin password and the IP address using hponcfg and the proper xml files from the OS

NOTE: when hponcfg is run locally USER_LOGIN and PASSWORD are not used, but must have some value present for the xml to work

Change Admin Password












Change IP address















To disable iLO RBSU password

I did this on a mixture of about 90 hp g3, g4 and g5 servers without turning them off.

Use hponcfg /reset which will reset the ILO then use hponcfg to dump the xml files.
