How to configure SSL key and SSL certificate of iLO4 at client, before execution of locfg.pl

Is there any need to configure SSL key and SSL certificate of iLO4 at the ubuntu machine where we are executing locfg.pl script? 

We need to execute locfg.pl from a ubuntu machine, so that we can send command using xml file to the iLO server. 

But during execution of locfg.pl, it has been observed that connection is getting terminated. 

What are the information to be configured before execution of locfg.pl script? 

Kindly mention.

A valid iLO user account and password is required for each XML script when using LOCFG.PL. The user account must have appropriate lights-out privileges to process the request.

The locfg.pl script connects to the iLO management processor using a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) connection.

So to answer you question you need an valid SSL cert and key.

It can be cert which is set from factory or you may use CA siged certs which included private key
