ERROR: Variable length should not exceed 80

Hello,

I retrieved the configuration of a proliant server (ilo4) with linux command below:

hponcfg -a -w config.xml

I changed some part. Now I would like to  upload the configuration again:

hponcfg -f config.xml

The output is:

HP Lights-Out Online Configuration utility
Version 5.5.0 Date 5/30/2019 (c) 2005,2019 Hewlett Packard Enterprise Development LP
Firmware Revision = 2.73 Device type = iLO 4 Driver name = hpilo
<INFORM> DHCP is currently disabled, enable DHCP to use any DHCP setting.</INFORM>
<INFORM>Integrated Lights-Out will reset at the end of the script.</INFORM>
IPMI_DCMI_OVER_LAN is already enabled.
AES is already Disabled.
<INFORM>Integrated Lights-Out will reset at the end of the script.</INFORM>
ERROR: Variable length should not exceed 80

How can I find what's wrong in the confix.xml ?

Thanks.

Hi @johndoe75 , 

Please try by adding a default password using the substitute or option. 

For example: hponcfg /f config.xml /s user_password=password

Let us know the outcome.

Yes and no.

My first issue was due to a % character is the SNMP community. Normally it's accepted but hponcfg consider this as a variable.

Then I changed also the other variables and it works correctly now.
