How to configure iLO from command line (HPe)

Si nos encontramos que tenemos que reconfigurar la IP de la placa ILO (OOB para HP) y no tenemos acceso desde esa LAN por algun motivo, podemos:

Teniendo instalado “HP Lights-Out Online” incluído en el “Service Pack for ProLiant”

 

Goto C:\Program Files\HP\hponcfg> or %ProgramFile%\HP\hponcfg

 

Then type:

hponcfg /w ilo.xml

this dumps iLO configuration into ilo.xml file

<RIBCL VERSION=”2.0″>
<LOGIN USER_LOGIN=”user” PASSWORD=”password”>
<RIB_INFO MODE=”WRITE” >
<MOD_NETWORK_SETTINGS>
<IP_ADDRESS VALUE = “x.x.x.x”/>
<SUBNET_MASK VALUE = “x.x.x.x”/>
<GATEWAY_IP_ADDRESS VALUE = “x.x.x.x”/>
<PRIM_DNS_SERVER value = “x.x.x.x”/>
<DHCP_ENABLE VALUE = “N”/>
</MOD_NETWORK_SETTINGS>
</RIB_INFO>
</LOGIN>
</RIBCL>

NOTE: The USER_LOGIN and PASSWORD tags are required, and must contain data, although any data is accepted.

 

Change IP related values and:

hponcfg /f ilo.xml

this writes new configuration back to the iLO and voilá.

 

Based on  Scripting Toolkit for Windows – Using HPONCFG also available on Linux.

After installing Hyper-V Integration Services on the next reboot the VM displays BSOD 0x0000007B – P2V Hyper-V Guest BSOD 0x0000007e wdfldr.sys

After a P2V from an old server a BSOD was showing. I see same error related to WDFLDR.SYS.

Solution:

  1. Boot the VM into LastKnownGood. Press F8 during boot.
  2. Open the Registry and drill down to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Wdf01000 There is a Group Value that should have the Value WdfLoadGroup. In my cases it was wrongly set to base… Change this to WdfLoadGroup
  3. Then remove the Integration Components from Control Panel/Software.
  4. Reboot the VM (now without ICs)
  5. Install the ICs once again

Thanks to robertvi2 from https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/robertvi/2009/10/07/after-installing-hyper-v-integration-services-on-the-next-reboot-the-vm-displays-bsod-0x0000007b/ to help to resolve this.

Enable/Disable Network interface via command line

Start elevated Command Prompt.

Get NIC list and index number:

wmic nic get name, index

Enable NIC with index number: (eg: 7)

wmic path win32_networkadapter where index=7 call enable

Disable NIC with index number: (eg: 7)

wmic path win32_networkadapter where index=7 call disable
