RIBCL: Get Activation Key?

RIBCL: Get Activation Key?

There's a sample script attached called license.xml. Unfortunately this can only be used to "set" and activation key value. I am trying to true up our advanced pack activation keys and need to query all servers' ilo MPs for the current activation key. According to the ilo MP scripting and command line resource guide, the only parameters available for the LICENSE command within a RIB_INFO block are ACTIVATE and DEACTIVATE. Any undocumented commands or other methods to query these? One contstraint is that I have to go through the OS since many of the iLOs aren't connected to the network (but were when they were activated).

Sorry, there are no RIBCL commands to retrieve a license key, only to install one.

Mike,

Here is one way to get the iLO licenses.

https:///xmldata?item=CpqKey

You would have to connect to one iLO at a time. A better way would be to use HPSim to gather the iLO licenses.

Unfortunately, I do not have access to most of these on the network. This is why I mentioned that I have to go through the host OS. I am using HPONCFG.EXE.

You can use hponcfg to find out the iLO ip. If you have a browser on your host server, then use the link https:///xmldata?item=CpqKey to find the iLO key.

Mike,

I tried https:///xmldata?item=CpqKey and it work for me.

Also, "Many of the iLO MPs I need to query are NOT on the network.."

I don't get what the problem is with the servers that are not on the network..

If you have to go there anyway you can run the command locally.

Maybe the CpqKey field stores the last used activation key.

Re: RIBCL: Get Activation Key?

Unable to retrieve that key by using RIBCL..

My logical solution will be using PHP or ASP..
