Re: How to set the lights-out Administrator password if it is lost

This seems to be only for Windows and Linux, What do you do if the server is running Netware?

There is not a HPONCFG NLM for NetWare. You will have to use iLO RBSU and possibly the iLO Security Override Switch to reset a lost password on those deployments.

Re: How to set the lights-out Administrator password if it is lost

Thanks for alll these informaions.

I tried to use this sample with hponcfg over Linux RedHat on a ML370 server and i have the following answer:
root# hponcfg -f 104468.xml
Firmware Revision = 1.89 Device type = iLO Driver name = cpqci
ERROR : STATUS= 0x0001
MESSAGE= Syntax error: Line #18: syntax error near """" in the line: ""
Script failed

What's the problem ?

Re: How to set the lights-out Administrator password if it is lost

Not sure what the problem is based on the command-line you provided:
root# hponcfg -f 104468.xml
The error indicates a problem with the input file, 104668.xml. Difficult to diagnose without seeing the content.

However, one thing that is not straight-forward is that HPONCFG cannot be used to capture/restore a lights-out configuration without a little massaging of the data. The Lights-Out Scripting and Command-Line resource guide has more details.
