If you ever need to reset ILO controller from linux CLI ( without loosing the configs ) you can use the following trick:
Create an xml file (reset.xml) on server containing:
<RIBCL VERSION="2.0"> <LOGIN USER_LOGIN="admin" PASSWORD="something"> <RIB_INFO MODE="write"> <RESET_RIB/> </RIB_INFO> </LOGIN> </RIBCL>
and then issue the following command:
hponcfg -f reset.xml
You will see a message like this :
root@pveg7:~# hponcfg -f reset.xml
HP Lights-Out Online Configuration utility
Version 4.2.0 Date 6/10/2013 (c) Hewlett-Packard Company, 2013
Firmware Revision = 1.87 Device type = iLO 3 Driver name = hpilo
Integrated Lights-Out will reset at the end of the script.
Please wait while the firmware is reset. This might take a minute
At this point controller should be up again. Hope it helps.
