HPEBios Cmdlets 2.1.0.1 - Set-HPEBiosServerInfo giving an error

Hello,

I use the HPEBIOSCmdlets for configuring many BIOS settings on my servers.

I have a batch of 10 DL380 Gen10 server models (BIOS Firmware 1.36 U30 and ILO Firmware 1.20).

I am using the following bit of code.  I imported a CSV file with all of my information (asset tag, username, password, etc).  Ths CSV file works perfectly with many HPEILO and HPEBIOS commands.

When i try to set asset tag information, i get the following error:

Failed for x.x.x.x (IP OF SERVER): Object reference not set to instance of object

 

foreach ($Server in $csv1) { 
    $ConnectBIOS = Connect-HPEBIOS -IP $Server.DHCPIP -Username "Administrator" -Password $Server.DefaultPW -DisableCertificateAuthentication -WarningAction SilentlyContinue
    Write-Host "Setting Asset Tag Number $($Server.AssetTag) on Server $($server.Serialnum)" -ForegroundColor Yellow
    Set-HPEBIOSServerInfo -Connection $ConnectBIOS -AssetTagProtection Unlocked
    Set-HPEBIOSServerInfo -Connection $ConnectBIOS -ServerAssetTag $Server.AssetTag
    Disconnect-HPEBIOS $ConnectBIOS | out-null
}

i have tried running both of those Set-HPEBIOS commands separately, but both fail with the above error.

Any ideas?  I don't have any other issues using the CSV and the information inside of it with other cmdlets.


Also,

When i have tried messing with the code, i'll get a warning that "Pipeline input was ignored from [0], [1], [2], all the way up to 9 to include my 10 servers.

Re: HPEBios Cmdlets 2.1.0.1 - Set-HPEBiosServerInfo giving an error

Thank you Rookie for reporting this issue.

Please provide the following information.

1. Are you able to run any other BIOS cmdlets?

2. Enable the log using Enable-HPEBIOSLog

3. Establish the Gen10 connection for single server (where it is failing) using Connect-HPEBIOS

Example: $con = Connect-HPEBIOS -IP <IP> -Username <username> -Password <password> -DisableCertificateAuthentication -Verbose

4. Send us the output ($con) of Connect-HPEBIOS cmdlet.

5. Execute Set-HPEBIOSBootMode with $con object and share the log

Example: $con | Set-HPEBIOSBootMode -BootMode LegacyBootMode -Verbose

Re: HPEBios Cmdlets 2.1.0.1 - Set-HPEBiosServerInfo giving an error

1.  Yes, I have been using the same workflow for over a year now.  With some Gen10 models (like this post I created), there are weird errors such as the one referenced in the post.  But it isn't consistent.  I was able to successfully configure many Gen10 models with the same workflow, just days prior without making any changes.

I will run the steps when I have more time.

Question, Does the new SPP (2018.03 and 2018.06) "Lock" the ILO when booting to the ISO via the ILO Virtual Media?

The reason I ask is that i'm constantly running a HOST POWER check in the background that constantly checks when the servers are powered down, and I notice that when the ISO is booting, my powershell script will prompt me that the USERNAME AND PASSWORD is incorrect while the SPP ISO is booting and it will cause issues.  

Also that username and password error will continue until the ILO is rebooted.  So I was wondering if there was any new behavior in the 2018 SPP iso's that are available.

I also get the same Object reference error when trying to to Set-HPEBIOSBootMode.

All DL380 Gen10 servers that I have on the bench, 10 of them, have the same hardware, firmware configuration and all get this error.  

I also had a lot of BL460 Gen10 models that had this same issue last week.

Re: HPEBios Cmdlets 2.1.0.1 - Set-HPEBiosServerInfo giving an error

Thank you Rookie for providing more informations.

From your log and verbose data, we are suspecting the BIOS data from underlying Redfish API is not available. It looks like the bios is not installed properly.

Please use any REST client (example : POSTMAN or restlet clients) and navigate to followings URLs.

1. https://<iLO_IP>/redfish/v1/Registries/

2. https://<iLO_IP>/redfish/v1/systems/1/bios/settings/

Let us know whether the payload is loaded or not.

Re: HPEBios Cmdlets 2.1.0.1 - Set-HPEBiosServerInfo giving an error

Hi Rookie,

This issue is not related to PowerShell issue and looks like iLO issue. Please create a new thread for closer purpose since the reported issues are different.

I am not an iLO expert. Here are my in sights.

Are you creating a new session to iLO (Connect-HPEiLO) everytime you the PowerShell script? if yes, are you closing the session (Disconnect-HPEiLO) after the host power check?

Re: HPEBios Cmdlets 2.1.0.1 - Set-HPEBiosServerInfo giving an error

Hey Rajesh I spoke with Kelly the other day and he mentioned trying to add the same thing to the do/while loop.

I have added that and will hope for good results.

When i get more hardware to try the RedFish test with PostMan, I will let you know.
