RILO and VB

Is it possible to remotely check to see if a server has a RILO and if so, what the IP address is for the RILO? If possible, I'm looking to do this with VB. Thanks

Re: RILO and VB

The easiest way would be to use HPONCFG. If it returns an error then there's no iLO/RILOE/RILOE II (or at least the driver isn't loaded). If it's present and you get a result, parse the output for the IP address.

Re: RILO and VB

The quickest ways that I can think of to do this over the network are:

1) to use HP SIM.

2) use the HP Directories Support for Management Processors. You can download it from this point:

This utility has the ability to scan a range of IP addresses looking for management processors. It can identify the version as well, and directory integration is not mandatory.
