Can you disable the iLo using the hponcfg utility?

We don't use the iLo on our Data Center servers and HPSIM shows a "major" problem with the Management Processor because they are not configured. I know you can disable them by rebooting and going into the BIOS setup. I'd rather disable them without a reboot.

Disabling Ilo is not a good option. You may need to access the system the using Ilo later.
You can remove the Ilo's which are already discovered in SIM and don't discover management proceessor while discovering all machines. You can provide this option during automatic discovery of machines.
Better solution will be to install agents and configure Ilo so that it won't show "major" error.

I reconfigured the agents to not recognize the iLo adapter. Thanks for the input!

Yes, there is a way to disable the iLO processor using XML scripts. One like the following will accomplish this. Note that the specific setting is called ILO_FUNCT_ENABLED, and this is a sample script taken from the mod_global_settings.xml example.

Todd- you can also take a pair of pliers and pull the ilo chip off of the motherboard. it may pull some surrounding chips off too so just make them stick back to the motherboard with some glue or something. you dont even have to reboot. this can be done while the server is on.
