Get and Set UID Led State

Hello,

I would like to know how can I retreive the state of the UID Led, and how can I change it.

I think I have to use an iLO API.


Is it possible ?

Download the iLO samples scripts. There are a couple you can use.

Get_UID_Status.xml










UID_Control.xml

Re: Get and Set UID Led State

Ok, great, that seems to be what I was searching, but how can I execute those scripts ?

I am using an Redhat Entreprise Linux OS, on a DL 360 G6 server.

Thanks for all.

Re: Get and Set UID Led State

Download the samples script for Linux

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?swItem=MTX-9ded60bd746942e18651211f51

They include a perl script called locfp.pl

The locfg.pl script connects to the iLO management processor using a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) connection.


perl locfg.pl -s {servername|ipaddress}[:port] [-l logfilename] -f input_filename [-u username -p password] [-ilo2|-ilo3]

Where:


-s servername is the DNS name of target server.

-s ipaddress is the IP Address of the target server. If a port is not specified, the port will default to :443. DO NOT USE this switch if launching from System Insight Manager.

-l logfilename is the name of the file to log all output to. A default file with the server name/ipaddress is created if this option is not specified. DO NOT USE this switch if launching from System Insight Manager.

-f input_filename is the filename containing the RIB Commands

-u username is the iLO user account name

-p password Command line user name and password override those which are in the script file.
Note: Use -u and -p with caution as command line options are visible on Linux.

-ilo2|-ilo3
Specifies the type of device on the server. Communications with Integrated
Lights-Out 3 (-ilo3) is different from other devices (-ilo2).
Note: locfg.pl detects the device automatically if this option is not present.

Re: Get and Set UID Led State

Since you're running Linux you have additional options as well.

At the host prompt, if you have the hp-health package installed, you have the 'hpuid' utility available:

hpuid -?

...for options.

For iLO, you can connect using SSH and type in

[VERB] /system1/led1

...where [VERB] is show, start or stop.

You can also do it remotely via SSH, so to check status:

ssh -l Administrator [iLO_IP_OR_DNS] "show /system1/led1"
