XLM Scripting

I'm using hponcfg.exe to configure the ILO settings during a new server build and I would like to have this script prompt a user thats doing the build to enter the ILO hostname and IP address since thats the only difference in the XML script.

Re: XLM Scripting

The RIBCL XML script is not an interactive language. However, you could accomplish what you want by creating a script using something like VBscript, JavaScript or Perl, prompting for the information you want and then writing that along with the rest of the information to a temporary file beforre calling HPONCFG and passing that temp file as the parameter.
