Error when trying to manage certificates on iLO4 with HPEiLOCmdlets v. 2.0.0.1

Start-HPEiLOCertificateSigningRequest, Get-HPEiLOCertificateSigningRequest and Get-HPEiLOSSLCertificateInfo all fails with ERROR status on Proliant Gen8 and Gen9 Servers using the iLO 2.0.0.1 cmdlets.

The HPE.iLO.Response.StatusInfo contains the following info
Category Message AffectedAttribute
-------- ------- -----------------
FeatureSupportability Feature not supported. {}

The same code works on Gen10 (iLO5) servers and the corresponding cmdlets in the 1.5.0.0 codebase works on the Gen8 and Gen9 servers I've tried.

According to the Scripting Tools for Windows PowerShell User Guide it should be supported?

Re: Error when trying to manage certificates on iLO4 with HPEiLOCmdlets v. 2.0.0.1

Hi,

I think the customer might be using older version of iLO4 where support for REST may not be available. In 2.0.0.1 we changed the communication interface from RIBCL to REST protocol only for certificate cmdlets (affects only 3 cmdlets) and rest of the cmdlets in iLO4 still using RIBCL only.

If customer upgrades his iLO4 FW to latest i.e., 2.60 then it should work as I checked with latest FW version and its working. 

Let me know the result after upgrading FW.

Thanks,

Gokul

Hi Gokul,

I'm sorry, I should have written that I've tested on both 2.54, 2.55 and 2.60 versions of iLO4.

Here is the output from an Proliant Gen8 BL460c running iLO4 2.60 using the 2.0.0.1 version

Re: Error when trying to manage certificates on iLO4 with HPEiLOCmdlets v. 2.0.0.1

Silly question, but can you confirm that you are in fact using version 2.0.0.1 of the HPEiLOCmdlet module?

PS D:\> Get-Command -module HPEiLOCmdlets |Select-Object -Property Name,Version |Select-String Start-HPEiLOCertificateSigningRequest,Get-HPEiLOSSLCertificateInfo

@{Name=Get-HPEiLOSSLCertificateInfo; Version=2.0.0.1}
@{Name=Start-HPEiLOCertificateSigningRequest; Version=2.0.0.1}

Hi,

I tried same set of cmdlets on BL460c Gen8 iLO4 FW 2.61 version using iLO 2.0.0.1 cmdlets all the working as desired.

You need to check your cmdlet version once again. If problem still persists send me the logs by using Enable-HPEiLOLog cmdlet before reproducing it.

Thanks,

Gokul

Re: Error when trying to manage certificates on iLO4 with HPEiLOCmdlets v. 2.0.0.1

Hi,

What regional settings are you using on the system where you are running iLO cmdlets ?

If "Format" setting is other than English then kindly change it to English(United States) and try running the cmdlets again.

I suspsect that your regional settings is using comma (,) for decimal digits where as default English standard is full stop (.)

In your iLO firmware output i see 2,60 which is not default settings that we use.

Thanks,

Gokul

Re: Error when trying to manage certificates on iLO4 with HPEiLOCmdlets v. 2.0.0.1

Hi,

I reproduced the issue when anyone change the regional settings from English to any other Europen format like France.

We will address this issue in next release i.e., 2.1 which is coming around oct\nov timeframe.

Till then workaround is to set the regional settings format to English default and all certificate cmdlets will work.

Thanks,

Gokul

Re: Error when trying to manage certificates on iLO4 with HPEiLOCmdlets v. 2.0.0.1

Hi,

I can confirm that the cmdlets work when using a US locale (Set-Culture en-US).

Looking forward to the new release.

Thanks
