iLO Data CollectionOpen in a New Window

Hi, I need to run CPQLOCFG to grab information for HP's Oneview spreadsheet. I have a script to run and it outputs the data to a text file. The script is below, however I have over 150 servers to run this against so is there anyway to not have to run this by individually typing in the servername? Also, I only need the following info:

IP_ADDRESS VALUE=

DNS_NAME VALUE=

DOMAIN_NAME VALUE="ind.hp.com

FIRMWARE_VERSION =

LICENSE_TYPE VALUE=

PRODUCT_NAME VALUE =

FIELD NAME=

The thing is, they want me to run this script and then copy and paste the above information into their spreadsheet. Is there anyway to automate this without having to manually copy and paste the above data from the xml files into the spreadsheet?

 

c:\HPQLOCFG.exe -s myserver-ilo -f hpscript.xml

 

HPScript.xml

<?xml version="1.0"?>

<?xmlilo output-format="xml"?>

<RIBCL VERSION="2.0">

<LOGIN USER_LOGIN="mylogon" PASSWORD="mypass">

<RIB_INFO MODE="read">

<GET_NETWORK_SETTINGS/>

<GET_FW_VERSION/>

<GET_ALL_LICENSES/>

</RIB_INFO>

<SERVER_INFO MODE="READ" >

<GET_PRODUCT_NAME />

<GET_SERVER_NAME />

<GET_HOST_DATA/>

</SERVER_INFO>

</LOGIN>

</RIBCL>

 

 

Thank you.

HP ilo connection error with Powershell + HP ilo cmdletsOpen in a New Window

Hello.

I just downloaded and installed the latest HP ILO commandlet package (1.3.1)

When I run a simple command I get the an error which I do not understand:

PowerCLI C:\> Get-HPiLOFirmwareInfo -Server iloserver01.company.int -Username Admin

...

Error - 192.168.99.13 - iloserver01.company.int - retrieving information from iLO

Does anyone have the same issue and know a workaround or answer for this problem?

 

I have found a post with a same error post, but without a reply or solution:

PS C:\Windows\System32> Get-HPiLOServerName -Server usraciPV100-r  -Username "RILOE_ADMIN" –Password "password" -DisableCertificateAuthentication

 I’ve verified the ILO name is correct. The ILO is running version 2.05. It’s online and running. And I can log into the ILO with the username and password. I get this error message for any of the ILO’s in our environment.

iLO LDAP integration letting everyone in!?Open in a New Window

I have configured iLO with LDAP directory integration. I am able to successfully login to iLO using my AD credentials. However, other AD users are also able to login to iLO. Users who are NOT in the "iloadmins" security group shown below are able to successfully login to iLO.

Settings I am using:
Administration > Security > Directory
"User Directory Default Schema"
Directory Server Address: <FQDN of AD server>
Port: 636
Directory User Context 1: OU=groups,OU=employees,DC=contoso,DC=dc,DC=com

Directory Groups: CN=iloadmins,OU=groups,OU=employees,DC=contoso,DC=dc,DC=com

 

Why does ILO4 attempt to connect to Amazon AWS ?Open in a New Window

I've just updated the firmware of a BL465c Gen 8 to the latest version 2.40.

When I now try and load the Web Interface, it takes ages to load, and in the status bar of Internet Explorer I can see that it's trying to download files from URL https://hpefonts.s3.amazonaws.com !

Unsurprisingly this fails as the ILO network is isolated from the internet, and the resulting web page doesn't appear to render correctly...

Surely all resources for the ILO web interface should be served from the ILO itself, and not be dependent on external sites ?!

 

ILO2 TLS upgradeOpen in a New Window

Dear all,

https://blog.varonis.com/ssl-and-tls-1-0-no-longer-acceptable-for-pci-compliance/

As per the above link TLS 1.0 is no longer accepted, and is already blocked by Google Chrome.

ERR_SSL_BAD_RECORD_MAC_ALERT

The question is: are there any plans of HP to release a version of iLO 2 with TLS > 1.2 backed in? 

Or has support ended for these kind of machines? 

And is there anything we - as users - can do to mitigate this issue - appart from using Internet Explorer, which is bound to fail in the future too.

Updating firmware on c3000 blades and the OA. Two blades won't allow iLO-Web Administration accessOpen in a New Window

I have updated the O.A. to version 4.50, which is what HPSUM says to put on it, and updated the firmware on 6 of the 8 blades to version 2.29, which is what HPSUM says to put on them.  Two of the blades won't allow me to access the iLO Web Administration page.  I get a popup error that says "Autologin failed:  Cannot delete user information for currently logged in user".  I've tried multiple browsers, and clearing cache in the browsers, etc.  I don't understand why these two blades aren't behaving the same as the other 6.  Anyone have a fix for me???

iLO Powershell Write-Host Error MessageOpen in a New Window

I'm running the HP iLO cmdlets on a Task Schedule on Windows 2012 R2 Server. The script works great except I am tyring to find a way the Get-HPiLOHealthSummary cmdlet to output certain errors. Currently it only sends this part of the error: "System.Management.Automation.RuntimeException: You cannot call a method on a null-valued expression", if it detects that a server is offline.
What im looking to accomplish, is to only send me the iP Address Error info that outputs on the first line on the cmdlet via the email Body. It looks something like this: "Error - 10.10.5.2 - - retrieving information from iLO". That way if a server is offline (over 40 Servers in the array), I can quickly determine which server is offline with the IP address.

It looks like the HP iLO cmdlet is possibly using a Write-Host to output their error message and that may be the issue. Can somoene please assist.

$all = Get-HPiLOHealthSummary -Server $_ -Username User -Password Pass -DisableCertificateAuthentication

This maybe a stupid question, but where is the bridge that is on the iLO login screen. Just curious.

 

How can Remote Console be used with ILO FederationOpen in a New Window

When setting up ILO Federation groups, there is an associated list of privileges that includes "Remote Console Privilege".

Does anyone know how exactly you would make use of this privilege, please? I can see how login, virtual media or power, for example, work via I/F but I cannot fathom how Remote Console would work.

 

Regards,

Richard.

 

 

Why does ILO3 replace underscore characters in OU field with spaces when a CSR is generated?Open in a New Window

Hope someone can help with this.

On an ILO3 system (running firmware version 1.87), if we generate a CSR whose OU field contains an underscore character, the underscore character is *silently* transformed to a space character. As the content of the OU field has to be validated against a known list when the CSR is submitted for approval, the validation fails and hence no cert is issued which is a show-stopper for us.

If there is some good technical reason for the non-acceptance of underscore characters, then the GUI panel for filling out the CSR/cert fields should issue a warning at that stage., surely?

Here is one link:

https://support.rackspace.com/how-to/generate-a-csr-with-openssl/

showing that underscore is not a forbidden character in OU fields.

Alternatively, is there an "escape sequence" that should be used to prefix/surround the underscore so that it is accepted?

 

This does not happen on ILO4 systems, btw.

Regards,

Richard.

Scripting Tools for Windows PowerShellOpen in a New Window

Is anyone else out there using Scripting Tools for Windows PowerShell?

Trying to use the Mount-HPiLOVirtualMedia cmdlet and it works ish. Can connect an ISO image over an HTTP connection but I can't get it to boot. I use the command:

Mount-HPiLOVirtualMedia -server <IP> -Device CDROM -DisableCertificateAuthentication -ImageURL <URL>

On the Virtual Media screen in the iLO managment, the Connected box is greyed out so looks like its mounted but not connected, anyone know how to Connect?

cannot install ilo online configuration utilitiy gui for ml150 g6Open in a New Window

Before I start, this server is on a remote site in which I will never physically touch.  i.e.  cannot reboot and go in iLO boot options to change IPs...

I cannot find the right driver to install the ilo management on - http://h20566.www2.hpe.com/hpsc/swd/public/readIndex?sp4ts.oid=3884326&swLangOid=8&swEnvOid=4064

I have tried the normal driver I use for 2008 r2 64x, but no dice.  http://h20564.www2.hpe.com/hpsc/swd/public/detail?swItemId=MTX_7ce673c901e841599eb31e3372#tab3

SMH shows Lights Out 100 w/an IP configured when this server went in initially,  but I need to change the IP as it's a different scheme...

Any ideas?
