Configuring iLO using a boot floppydisk

Hello,
I would like to configure iLO using a floppy. Note that DHCP is not available on my network.
Is there a tool similar to hponcfg.exe that runs in DOS or W98 boot mode ?

No, there is not a DOS tool to configure iLO using scripting.

At one time, the SmartStart scripting toolkit contained a utility called CPQLODOS that provided some capability to do this. However, support was limited, and some digging must be done to find that utility.

Thanks,

Anyone having a feedback on using this obsolete tool with new proliant servers ?
I just need to set a static IP configuration and modify Administrator's password.
