lost admin password of ILO on DL145G2

Hi,

Could anyone know how to reset the ILO back to factory default or reset the password of the admin user account ?

Do you have Windows/Linux OS in your server?
Then you can use HP online configuration utility(hponcfg) wich comes along with PSP (%Programfiles%/HP/hponcfg), also downloadable from the web.

Run
hponcfg -f reset_pw.xml (Attached)
for changing the password.

Alernatively, boot into RBSU interface of iLO by pressing F8 when prompted during POST. There you have the option to both change the password and reset iLO to factory defaults.

Hi,

When I use this method to reset the password, it prompts up

ERROR: CPQSMIF.DLL and SM2USER.DLL not found.
ACTION REQUIRED: Please install the latest Proliant support pack.

I can't install a PSP on it because it is a DL145G2.

CPQSMIF.DLL seems to be found in the latest HP ProLiant Integrated Lights-Out Management Interface Driver for Windows 2000/Windows Server 2003. Get that installed and try again.

hi,

hponcfg works only with ilo, ilo2 and riloe2. no way to use it with lo100i.

you can use ipmitool to reset the password to the default "admin", check
