The OS level SSH server has nothing to do with iLO's SSH access.

For password-less login, you could try iLO2 web UI->Administration->Security->SSH key. There are some limitations, see context help on the same page.

Take a look at Oemhp_LoadSSHKey command (help Oemhp_LoadSSHKey).

For a passwordless ssh login you will need to add an ssh key to iLO2, The users guide talks about it

http://bizsupport2.austin.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c00553302/c00553302.pdf

Another option is to use the locfg.pl perl script to send XML directly to iLO2. The scripting sample package has the XML to control server power

Re: Password less SSH login through ILO of HP BL465C server ( O.S = Linux )

There is a way to get 'better' documentation by including examples for usage of locfg.pl on Linux? I am trying to use it on a HP Proliant DL360 G6 running RHEL 5.4 without any luck.

The link I provided to the perl samples includes at least 80 XML files for iLO. what are you having issues with?

Re: Password less SSH login through ILO of HP BL465C server ( O.S = Linux )

Thanks for your quickly answer!

I am trying to import SSH Keys on the iLO2 for a HP Proliant DL360 G6 running RHEL 5.4. I am using the Software Light-Out Management for Linux and when I am running the locfg.pl script I am getting this error message:



STATUS="0x0058"
MESSAGE='There is no user name or the user name appended to SSH key does not exist.'
/>


The way I am running the Perl script is as follow:

root # ./locfg -s iLOserver.mydomain.com -f Import_SSH_Key.xml

I have generated locally on a Linux box the SSH key by using ssh-keygen (rsa) for the same user account I have defined on the iLO2. Of course, I have included the correct USER_LOGIN and PASSWORD on the xml file. USER_LOGIN matchs for both, OS and iLO2 user accounts.

Any help will be really appreciated!

Thanks in advance,
-Hugo
