  • How to reset iLO4 password remotely using Onboard Administrator

    Did you forgot password for your iLO4 web page?

    You can reset the same using your OA, either using RIBCL script or by connecting to your iLO via OA and then resetting the same


    Method 1

    Using RIBCL scripts you can reset the password of your iLO web page


    In the below script replace "2" with the blade number for which you wish to reset the password
    Replace "Administrator" as highlighted to the username for which you wish to reset the password
    Replace "password" with the password value for provided user
    Once done

    Login to your OA via ssh client and paste the entire script on your console
    hponcfg 2 << eof
    <RIBCL VERSION="2.0">
     <LOGIN USER_LOGIN="adminname" PASSWORD="password">
     <USER_INFO MODE="write">
     <MOD_USER USER_LOGIN="Administrator">
     <PASSWORD value="password"/>
     </MOD_USER>
     </USER_INFO>
     </LOGIN>
    </RIBCL>
    eof





    Hit Enter to execute the script
    You will get output similar to below if the script was executed successfully
    Bay 2: Executing RIBCL request ...
    Bay 2: Awaiting RIBCL results ...
    Bay 2: RIBCL results retrieved.
    <!-- ======== START RIBCL RESULTS ======== -->


    <!-- ======== Bay 2 RIBCL results ======== -->

        STATUS="0x0000"
        MESSAGE='No error'
         />
    </RIBCL>

    <!-- ======== END RIBCL RESULTS ======== -->



    Method 2

    Assuming you are not able to execute RIBCL script for some reason then you can try the alternate method
    NOTE: This can also be done via GUI method

    Login to the OA CLI using any ssh client for eg Putty
    BlrSiteA1-01-01> connect server 2

    Connecting to bay 2 ...
    User:OAtmp-HPadmin-5A8FAE82 logged-in to Ban17-test-a.BlrSiteA(10.10.112.101 / FE80::7250:6FFF:FCE0:1526)

    iLO 4 Advanced for BladeSystem 2.55 at  Aug 16 2017
    Server Name: Ban17-test-a
    Server Power: On

    </>hpiLO->

    Next execute the below command to reset the password of your user. Here replace username and password with your username and password value.
    </>hpiLO->set /map1/accounts1/HPadmin password=Passw0rd

    status=0
    status_tag=COMMAND COMPLETED
    Fri Feb 23 11:33:49 2018

    Now you can try to login back to your iLO page.

    I hope the article was useful.
