ILO Password Reset on Multiple Servers - Automated Solution

We need to change the ILO passwords on all 300 Intel servers. This is because of a security transition between vendors at one of my client's sites, which we have taken ownership of.

How can i do this on multiple servers without having to log into each one? I know little of HPSIM etc and would prefer not to have to invoke any complex scripting.

If someone could assist with a step by step overview it would be greatly appreciated. I've read of some of the HP Config utilities but as i say i'm needing some guidance on how to save time without logging into 300 servers manually.


Note: We do not have the existing iLO Password details.

Many thanks

Use HPONCFG if you have access to the host OS of the subject servers. Read up at http://www.hp.com/go/ilo --> More iLO3 documentation --> HP ProLiant Integrated Lights-Out 3 v 1.05 Scripting and Command Line Guide

Re: ILO Password Reset on Multiple Servers - Automated Solution

So to confirm there is no way to do this except via a script. I was hoping for a previous example of someone having had to do this task in the past.

For example: http://blog.netnerds.net/2006/04/ribcl-reset-administrator-password-on-ilo/

However i need multiple server password reset and am not particularly clear on the format of the text.
