Scripting of boot order with iLO2 Advanced

Scripting of boot order with iLO2 Advanced

We would like to script (with perl) the boot order of our servers in the following way:

1. set the first boot device to "network boot"
2. restart the system
3. wait some time
4. set the first boot device back to "local disk"

I cannot find any hints how to script the boot order. There are no example scripts and the Scripting Guide has nothing to say at all about the boot order.

Using the ssh-interface is not an option, as it is not conform to the ssh standard so that the access from perl is absolutely terrible, causing the Net:SSH::Perl-module to choke.

Has anyone of you an idea, how we could do that?

Thank you very much
