How to check/change iLo settings on DL380 G3 without rebooting

Isn't there a way to check and reset the iLo settings from either command line or Insight Manager without rebooting and selecting F8? This is a critical server that can't be rebooted during the day and no one is availible at night. Thanks.

HPONCFG can do it from the host OS without knowing credentials and even if network settings are incorrect. CPQLOCFG can be used across the network if the network is functional and credentials are available.

Also, you can access iLO using SSH over the network. This meets the command-line goal, but it also requires iLO to be configured.

Thanks everyone! I've also been asked "if a critical server has been built, brought on line, and, duh!, someone forgot to configure the iLo", what can be done? I'll go through the utility and see if that answers my question.

You will need to download some tools from here:
http://h18004.www1.hp.com/support/files/lights-out/us/locate/69_6220.html

- the iLO driver
- the iLO Online configuration utility
- XML scripting examples (optional)

Manuals are here, including the scripting and command-line guide:
