Remove iLO License Key

Is there a way to remove the license key in iLO w/o resetting the entire server? Optimally I would be most happy if I could do it with the online config util?

Thanks!

hi Joe

yes you can

just download an ssh application like putty
log in to your server one there use this command

delete /map1 license

ssh will hang but let it do that for 90 secs after that close ssh and the key will be removed


anything else just let me know

Re: Remove iLO License Key

I use the command line config (cpqlocfg.exe) to manage some of my management processors... I have a script to add a license key, but I don't know if the same would work if you just leave the key blank... something like:

<RIBCL VERSION="2.0">
<LOGIN USER_LOGIN="adminname" PASSWORD="password">
<RIB_INFO MODE="write">
<LICENSE>
<ACTIVATE KEY=""/>
</LICENSE>
</RIB_INFO>
</LOGIN>
</RIBCL>

 

Save that in a file like "license.xml" and then: cpqlocfg.exe -s iloIPADDRESS -f license.xml -u iloUser -p iloPass

 

Like I said, I don't know if there's a separate thing you should try to deactivate or remove a key...it might just give an error if you pass it a blank string, or it would try adding it as an additional license.  The old documentation I have mentioned deactivating as well but didn't say how to do it... I'm guessing. :)

Re: Remove iLO License Key

Should I open a new thread...?

 

Interesting info.

 

We have some 2000 iLO advanced licenses to manage and we do it manually due to various problems with Insight Manager (7.2).

 

We are moving toward using a single key for all systems and I am curious as to if the cpqlocfg.exe could work to not only delete the old key but to update the iLO advanced license on the managed nodes to our new shared key.

 

Once we get the issues worked out of SIM, I know it can automate this for us.

 

As well we may be able to use SCCM and make these key updates if it can be scripted.

 

Thank you
