Using iLO scripts on CPQLOCFG.EXE to PXE boot

Using iLO scripts on CPQLOCFG.EXE to PXE boot

Hi All,

Is there any way in which I can PXE boot a server with iLO using xml scripts on CPQLOCFG.EXE.

Similar to how ipmiutil commands can be used to perform PXE boot, is there a similar method which can be used with CPQLOCFG as well.

Regards,
Tony

Re: Using iLO scripts on CPQLOCFG.EXE to PXE boot

I know I asked the developers for this a while back, but never followed up to see if they added the feature. You could use the REBOOT.EXE utility from the SMartStart Scripting toolkit for Windows. The utilty does a 1 time reboot to the specified device.

the syntax is c:\> reboot PXE

"Valid arguments that can be passed to REBOOT are A:, C:, CD, RBSU, or PXE"

Re: Using iLO scripts on CPQLOCFG.EXE to PXE boot

Thanks Jimmy,
I'm not familiar with SMartStart Scripting toolkit, but I did find another good solution.

We can actually ssh into the iLO port using the credentials of that iLO port and then run the command,
set /system1/bootconfig1/bootsource5 bootorder=1

This will set the Network Boot Priority as the first. Now when we reset the server, the server will PXE boot.
