Reconfigure iLo network settings using HPONCFG


To proceed with this we will use HPONCFG utility.

To write the current iLo configuration simply open a cmd prompt and execute the following command:

C:\Program Files\HP\hponcfg>hponcfg /w iLoConfig.xml

To change settings you need to create an XML file containing the parameters you want to change, formatted using the RIBCL language.

RIBCL allows you to write XML scripts to configure and manage iLO config settings.

To modify the network settings create a xml file with this information:

<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>

And then run the script like so:

C:\Program Files\HP\hponcfg>hponcfg /f your_script_name.xml

Hope that this information can be useful
