Simpler Navigation coming for Servers and Operating Systems
Coming soon: a much simpler Servers and Operating Systems section of the Community. We will combine many of the older boards, and you won't have to click through so many levels to get at the information you need. If you are looking for an older board and do not find it, check the consolidated boards, as the posts are still there.

XLM Scripting

I'm using hponcfg.exe to configure the ILO settings during a new server build and I would like to have this script prompt a user thats doing the build to enter the ILO hostname and IP address since thats the only difference in the XML script.

Re: XLM Scripting

The RIBCL XML script is not an interactive language. However, you could accomplish what you want by creating a script using something like VBscript, JavaScript or Perl, prompting for the information you want and then writing that along with the rest of the information to a temporary file beforre calling HPONCFG and passing that temp file as the parameter.
