Re: Why does this ILO script not work?

I am unsure where you are getting the script error. Are you using CPQLOCFG.EXE v2.25 from here?

It is also possible that the user account does not have Virtual Power and Reset privilege.

Re: Why does this ILO script not work?

I am only using VBS not the EXE. I am using the MSXML2.DOMDocument object to load the XML file and the MSXML2.ServerXMLHTTP object to send the MXL file to the server the same way the sample perl scripts do it.

Thanks,

Mike

P.S. I am not interested in using the EXE because the script will ultimately do alot more using WMI and Active Directory (ADSI)

Re: Why does this ILO script not work?

The perl script examples I am speaking of are included in this doc:

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c00294268/c00294268.pdf

Thanks,

P.S. It kinda makes me mad that the HP Integrated Lights-Out Management Processor
Scripting and Command Line Resource Guide only includes perl script examples. HELLO!!!!

Re: Why does this ILO script not work?

I have yet to get this to work. I am not using any exe. This runs under VBS using MSXML

Re: Why does this ILO script not work?

Anybody find any answers to this? It would great if I could interact with the ILO via VBScript as my currently WMI based inventory management is all VBS. I need to be able to pull rack info for my c-class blades

Try this:
Send the XML header , then flush the socket, then send the rest.
