HPONCFG - sample scripts & parameters

Just an FYI - I was having problems with the Add_User.XML script (obtained from the downloadable samples) and found out it uses a syntax that works on HP DL380s G2/G3 (iLO), but didn't work on ML570 G2 servers (RILOE-II).

The problem lied in parameters with a
<... value ="Yes"/> or
<... value ="No"/>

but if I used
<... value = "Y"/>
<... value = "N"/>

it worked for both just fine.

I finally figured this out by issuing the HPONCFG /w config.xml command and looking at what RIBCL wrote out. It used the abbreviated parameter values (Y and N instead of Yes and No), so I tried those instead and it worked. :)

HPONCFG 1.1 worked on both DL380/ML570.
HPONCFG 1.2 I haven't tested yet
HPONCFG 1.3 did NOT work on the DL 380.

Note to HP: Could you folks update the sample scripts to address the problem described at the top of this post? Thanks!

Thanks for the feedback. The sample scripts will be revised to avoid the syntax inconsistency.
