iLO Advanced License - Activation Key

I have noticed that one activation key can be used on all my ilo boards... I have some activated ilo boards with the same key, now i'm wondering if this would have any effect on the features of all of these cards?

best regards,

I don't believe it has any affect on the features, just don't get caught! Mother HP would not approve.

Re: iLO Advanced License - Activation Key

The LICENSE command activates or deactivates the iLO's advanced features. For this command to parse
correctly, the command must appear within a RIB_INFO command block, and RIB_INFO MODE must be
set to write. The user must have the configure iLO 2 privilege to execute this command.
On a ProLiant BL Class server, there is no need for a licensing key. Advanced features are automatically
activated.
Example:











Hope this helps.
Thanks

Re: iLO Advanced License - Activation Key

Yes you can remove/deactivate license without reverting back to factory setting by either doing one of the following:
1:by logging into iLO2 using command line (telnet/secure shell) and execute command "delete /map1 license"
2:Use RIBCL command for licensing and send this to iLO using CPQLOCFG/HPONCFG utilities

LICENSE parameters

ACTIVATE followed by a valid KEY value signals the activation of the iLO 2 advanced pack licensing.
KEY specifies the license key value. The key should be entered as one continuous string. Commas,
periods, or other characters should not separate the key value. The key will only accept 25 characters;
other characters entered to separate key values will be interpreted as a part of the key and result in the
wrong key being entered.
Using RIBCL 105

DEACTIVATE signals the deactivation of the iLO 2 advanced pack licensing.
