Changing the iLO Passwords for multiple ProLiant server blades in an enclosure
The HPONCFG utility provides host-side configuration and management in Windows and Linux
For Linux environments, you can also use Perl scripts to securely and remotely access iLO devices for configuration and management. Sample scripts are available in the
Windows®-based utility that lets you configure and manage multiple iLO devices from one client device. You can launch the CPQLOCFG utility from HP SIM for Group Administration or run it independently from a command prompt for batch processing. The CPQLOCFG utility passes Remote Insight Board Command Language (RIBCL)/XML scripts to the iLO. RIBCL scripts are OS-independent. The sample script to change iLO passwords is shown in Figure 2-1. Always read the firmware support information in the sample script to customize the script for the intended firmware and version.CPQLOCFG.EXE version 3.0 or greater supports all versions of iLO. ® environments. It lets you access only the iLO device on the host system where it is running. The advantage of using HPONCFG is that it doesn?t require you to log in to iLO (the host OS provides the security), and you don?t need to know the iLO?s network address. The HPONCFG utility for Linux is an RPM package file (hponcfg.rpm) and works similarly to the HPONCFG utility for Windows.
