Retrieving iLO settings from multiple PCs

Hi

This works fine on a 1-2-1 server basis, but I have 100 servers to retrieve the current keys from. Anyone any ideas how I can batch this up?

Cheers

Re: Retrieving iLO settings from multiple PCs

Hi
Can you elaborate on the exact script say if iLos are:

10.0.0.0
10.0.0.1

To pull the keys back from these 2?

Re: Retrieving iLO settings from multiple PCs

Yep got that
But for 100+servers wanted to batch something and export the outout to file - thats what I am having trouble with

i.e.
https://serverip1/xmldata?item=CpqKey
https://serverip2/xmldata?item=CpqKey
https://serverip3/xmldata?item=CpqKey

To run automated

Re: Retrieving iLO settings from multiple PCs

I tried to create a script from
http://www.microsoft.com/technet/scriptcenter/resources/qanda/feb05/hey0222.mspx

To capture the output. This works nicely for http pages. But have not yet got past accepting the certificate for a https page.
