Need to get iLO version and license level for multiple servers remotely through Windows Server

We have over two hundred HPE servers and only a few of them have network cables attached to the iLO ports.  Some servers have Standard iLO licenses and some have Advanced iLO licenses. We need to query all of the servers to determine whether the servers have the Standard or Advanced license and what version of iLO they have (iLO 2, iLO 3, iLO 4, iLO 5). Each server does have the "HP Lights-Out Online Configuration Utility" (HPONCFG) installed. Additionally, most of the servers do not have the HPEiLOCmdlets PowerShell module installed.

I have read part of some of the scripting guides but I am not sure where to go from here. From what I did read, they do not mention how to get the level of license information (Standard or Advanced). They also do not indicate whether or not that information can be pulled from the Windows Server OS. I admit that I did not read every page in the scripting guides. Since the iLO 5 guide is almost 250 pages and the table of content does not indicate where to find this information, I could not afford to spend the time to read the entire document if the information was not there or it was not possible to do with the command-line scripting.

I am hoping that someone more versed in this would know how to do it or if it is possible to get this information remotely instead of looking at each server individually. As an extra bit of information to this request for help, we would like to remotely pull the iLO license key codes for each server if possible.

You can use iLOrest tool to get iLO licenses details.

RESTful Interface Tool (iLOREST) :
https://hewlettpackard.github.io/python-redfish-utility/#bootorder-command-examples


Get_All_Licenses.bat 

This is a sample batch script to get the license nformation.
