Backup All Bios Settings - Restore

Hi, I want to backup all BIOS settings from a DL360 Gen10 to a file and restore to 30 other DL360 Gen10 servers.  Is this possible including raid configuration? Who has done something similar?

Thanks

Best regards

Werner

Hi

The following should help with the BIOS backup - https://support.hpe.com/hpesc/public/docDisplay?docId=a00036487en_us&docLocale=en_US

GetBIOSSettings https://support.hpe.com/hpesc/public/docDisplay?docLocale=en_US&docId=a00020913en_us

RAID is not managed by the BIOS, it's managed by the ACU.  There is a sperate set of tools for this, the following should help

Re: Backup All Bios Settings - Restore

Hi, I configured a new dl360Gen10 with a iLO IP address 172.x.x.x. On the management PC I installed the hpe-scripting-toolkit-windows-11.40-17. I start ilorest.exe on the management PC with this commands:

Ilorest > Login 172.x.x.x -u Administrator -p password

Ilorest >select Bios.v1_0_0

Ilorest >get -j

With that I get a File bios.json, but inside the file I can not see the iLO IP address 172.x.x.x i set before, DHCP should be disabled and subnetmask should set 255.255.0.0.

"Dhcpv4": "Enabled",

………."Ipv4Address": "0.0.0.0",

"Ipv4Gateway": "0.0.0.0",

"Ipv4PrimaryDNS": "0.0.0.0",

"Ipv4SecondaryDNS": "0.0.0.0",

"Ipv4SubnetMask": "0.0.0.0",

What is wrong, I do not see my settings....Is that not the right submenu ?

Thanks a lot!

Best regards, have a nice weekend! Werner

Hi

Take a look at the following... The serverclone function looks like it does what you need
