Getting RILOE I & II MAC Addresses

Does anyone know of a way that I can find out the MAC addresses of our RILOE I & II boards, using the CPQLOCFG utility and the XML scripts? Everything has been upgraded to the latest firmware rev, so I am able to use the one utility for all of them, but only the iLO's return a MAC address when I use the get_network.xml. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Re: Getting RILOE I & II MAC Addresses

Currently, there is not a reliable way to get this if the board is not on the same subnet. If it is, you can use PING and ARP:

C:\>ping 192.168.1.1

Pinging 192.168.1.1 with 32 bytes of data:

I believe HP SIM captures this data.

Same problem here, preventing fully automatic installations of HP blades.
I can't believe there's no way of accessing this information via the CLI.. hopefully an update will address this ?
Trying to script logging in via the web interface, will post here if I can get it to work.
