HP iLO 3 provides multiple ways to configure,
update, and operate HP ProLiant servers remotely. The HP Integrated Lights-Out 3 User Guide describes each
feature and explains how to use these features with the
browser-based interface and RBSU.
The HP Integrated
Lights-Out Management Processor Scripting and Command Line Resource
Guide describes the syntax and tools available to use iLO 3
through a command line or scripted interface.
Sample XML scripts downloaded from the HP
website contain commands for all iLO, iLO 2, and iLO 3, and RILOE
II firmware. Unless otherwise specified, examples in this guide are
specifically for iLO 3 firmware version 1.00 and later. Before
using the XML sample scripts downloaded from the HP website, read the firmware support
information in each sample script to tailor the script for the
intended firmware and version.
In addition to the graphical user interface, HP
iLO 3 provides multiple ways to configure and control iLO 3 and the
server using scripts, or command line instructions.
The scripting tools provide a method to mass
configure multiple iLO 3 systems, to incorporate a standard
configuration into the deployment process, and to control servers
and iLO 3 subsystems programmatically. Using the scripting tools,
you can change the Administrator password on all your iLO 3
systems, configure LDAP directory service settings, control the
server's power state, attach a virtual media CD-ROM/DVD to the host
server, update the iLO 3 firmware, retrieve power consumption data,
and many other configuration and control commands. Over 75 sample
scripts are available on the following HP web site www.hp.com/go/iLO.
The command line tools provide quick and easy
methods to send commands to iLO 3 and host servers.
