User Guide Integrated Lights-Out Terminal Services Button Display This version of the iLO firmware does not accurately display through the Terminal Services button whether the host operating system is enabled for Terminal Services operation. Even if the operating system is not enabled (for example, the host operating system is Linux, which does not support Terminal Services operation), the Terminal Services button might not appear inactive and might inaccurately imply that Terminal Services operation is available.
Terminal Services can be disabled or enabled at any time. Changing the Terminal Services configuration causes the iLO firmware to reset. Resetting the iLO firmware interrupts any open connections to iLO. When the Terminal Services client is launched by the Remote Console, Remote Console goes into a sleep mode to avoid consuming CPU bandwidth.

User Guide Integrated Lights-Out iLO should not be connected directly to the Internet. A 128-bit cipher strength browser must be used. Encryption iLO provides strong security for remote management in distributed IT environments by using 128-bit SSL encryption of HTTP data transmitted across the network.
Setting the iLO Security Override Switch also enables you to flash the iLO boot block. HP does not anticipate that you will need to update the iLO boot block. If an iLO boot block update is ever required, physical presence at the server will be required to reprogram the boot block and reset iLO.
User Guide Integrated Lights-Out An alternative to local iLO user accounts is to integrate iLO user authentication into directory services. This configuration allows a virtually unlimited number of users, and easily scales to the number of Lights-Out devices in an enterprise. Additionally, the directory provides a central point of administration for Lights- Out devices and users, and the directory can enforce a stronger password policy.
Global Security Settings Global security settings allow the administrator to control access to functions or to control specific actions of functions that have been enabled globally. For example, you can control access to iLO RBSU, enable or disable Lights-Out Functionality, set the Remote Console timeout, Web server SSL and non-SSL ports, virtual media port, and set the minimum password length.
User Guide Integrated Lights-Out Certificates By default, iLO creates a self-signed certificate for use in SSL connections. This certificate enables the iLO to work without any additional configuration steps. The security features of the iLO can be enhanced by importing a trusted certificate.
Securing RBSU The iLO RBSU allows user access for viewing and modifying the iLO configuration. RBSU access settings can be configured using RBSU, browser, RIBCL scripts, and the iLO Security Override Switch. RBSU has three levels of security: RBSU Disabled (most secure) If iLO RBSU is disabled, user access is prohibited.

LOM device objects for Active Directory ("Directory Services for Active Directory" on page 153) and eDirectory ("Directory Services for eDirectory" on page 171). In general, administrators can use the HP provided snap-ins to create objects. It is useful to give the LOM device objects meaningful names, such as the device's network address, DNS name, host server name, or serial number.
DNS name of a local directory server or, for more redundancy, a multi-host DNS name. Using Bulk Import Tools Adding and configuring large numbers of LOM objects is time consuming. HP provides several utilities to assist in these tasks. Below is a brief description of the utilities available.
Discover the LOM devices as management processors using CPQLOCFG to send a RIBCL XML script file to a group of LOM devices to manage those LOM devices. The LOM devices perform the actions designated by the RIBCL file and send a response to the CPQLOCFG log file.
User Guide Integrated Lights-Out When using Microsoft® Active Directory, it is possible to place one group within another or nested groups. Role objects are considered groups and can include other groups directly. Add the existing nested group directly to the role, and assign the appropriate rights and restrictions.
An admin user gains the login right from the regular user group. More advanced rights are assigned through the Admin role, which assigns additional rights— Server Reset and Remote Console. A d m in U se r U se r The Admin role assigns all admin rights—Server Reset, Remote Console, and Login.
User Guide Integrated Lights-Out Creating Roles to Follow Organizational Structure Often, the administrators within an organization are placed into a hierarchy in which subordinate administrators must assign rights independently of ranking administrators. In this case, it is useful to have one role that represents the rights assigned by higher-level administrators and to allow the subordinate administrators to create and manage their own roles.
DNS-based restrictions can limit access to a single, specific machine name or to machines sharing a common domain suffix. For example, the DNS restriction, www.hp.com, matches hosts that are assigned the domain name www.hp.com. However, the DNS restriction, *.hp.com, matches any machine originating from DNS restrictions can cause some ambiguity because a host can be multi-homed.
User Guide Integrated Lights-Out Using DNS-based restrictions can create some security complications. Name service protocols are insecure. Any individual with malicious intent and access to the network can place a rogue DNS service on the network creating fake address restriction criteria. Organizational security policies should be taken into consideration when implementing DNS-based address restrictions.
How User Time Restrictions are Enforced Administrators can place a time restriction on directory user accounts. Time restrictions limit the ability of the user to log in (authenticate) to the directory. Typically, time restrictions are enforced using the time at the directory server, but if the directory server is located in a different time zone or a replica in a different time zone is accessed, then time zone information from the managed object can be used to adjust for relative time.
User Guide Integrated Lights-Out Network address restrictions placed on the user in the directory might not be enforced in the expected manner if the directory user logs in through a proxy server. When a user logs in to a LOM device as a directory user, the LOM device attempts authentication to the directory as that user, which means that address restrictions placed on the user account apply when accessing the LOM device.
Directory-Enabled Remote Management In the example, security policy dictates general use is restricted to clients within the corporate subnet, and server reset capability is additionally restricted to after hours. Alternatively, the directory administrator could create a role that grants the login right and restrict it to the corporate network, then create another role that grants only the server reset right and restrict it to after-hours operation.
User Guide Integrated Lights-Out The previous configuration meets corporate security policy. However, adding another role that grants the login right can inadvertently grant server reset privileges from outside the corporate subnet after hours. A more manageable solution would be to restrict the Reset role, as well as the General Use role.
HPQLOMGC Operation...217 Introduction to Lights-Out Migration Utilities For customers with previously installed management processors, HP created two utilities to simplify the migration of these processors to management by Directory Services. The two utilities are the HPQLOMIG utility and the HPQLOMGC utility. These utilities automate some of the migration steps necessary for the management processors to support Directories Services.
User Guide Integrated Lights-Out HPQLOMGC is a command line utility enabling you to migrate individual management processors. Used in conjunction with Insight Manager 7 or Systems Insight Manager, HPQLOMGC upgrades the firmware of the management processor, if necessary, configures the management processor, and configures the directory settings.
4. Download the HP Lights-Out Directory Services Smart Component from the HP website (http://www.hp.com/servers/lights-out). 5. Apply the HP Lights-Out schema extensions to the directory. 6. Create a role for the users of the management processor using the HP Lights- Out management snap-in. HP Lights-Out Directory Package All of the migration software, as well as the schema extender and management snap-ins, are packaged together in an HP Smart Component.
Systems Insight Manager, consider using the HPQLOMIG utility. IMPORTANT: Installing directory support for any management processor requires downloading the HP Smart Component. Refer to the "Pre-Migration Checklist (on page 206)" and the "HP Lights-Out Directory Package" sections for additional information. Extending the schema must be completed by a Schema Administrator.
If you click Next, Back, or exit the application during discovery, operations on the current network address are completed but those on subsequent network addresses are cancelled. To start the process of discovering your management processors: 1. Select Start>Programs>Hewlett-Packard, HPQLOMIG to start the migration utility.
Results column and HPQLOMIG continues to upgrade the other discovered management processors. IMPORTANT: HP recommends testing the upgrade process and verifying the results in a test environment before running the utility on a production network. An incomplete transfer of the firmware image to a management processor could result in having to locally reprogram the management processor using a floppy diskette.
3. Click Upgrade Firmware. The selected management processors will now be upgraded. Although this utility enables you to upgrade hundreds of management processors, only 25 management processors are upgraded simultaneously. Network activity is considerable during this process. 4. After the upgrade is complete, click Next. During the firmware upgrade process, all buttons are deactivated to prevent navigation.
User Guide Integrated Lights-Out Naming Management Processors This screen enables you to name Lights-Out Management device objects in the directory and create corresponding device objects for all management processors to be managed. You can create names using one or more of the following: The network address An index A prepend prefix to all...
Lights-Out Directories Migration Utilities 5. After the names are correct, click Next. Configuring Directories The Configure Directory screen enables you to create a device object for each discovered management processor and to associate the new device object to a previously defined role. For example, the directory defines a user as a member of a role (such as administrator) who has a collection of privileges on a specific device object (such as a RILOE II card).
User Guide Integrated Lights-Out Network Address—This is the network address of the directory server and can either be a valid DNS name or IP address. Port—The port is the SSL port to the directory. The default entry is 636. Management processors can only communicate with the directory using SSL. Login Name and Password—These fields are used to log in with an account that has domain administrator access to the directory.
Lights-Out Directories Migration Utilities 5. After the device objects have been associated with a role, click Next. Setting Up Management Processors for Directories The last step in the migration process is to configure the management processors to communicate with the directory. This screen enables you to create user contexts and designate whether or not Directory Support and Local Accounts are enabled.
CN=Users,DC=RILOETEST2,DC=HP allows user "John Smith" to log in using John Smith rather than CN=John Smith,CN=Users, DC=RILOETEST2,DC=HP. The @ format is also supported. For example, @RILOETEST2.HP in a context field allows the user to log in using jsmith (assuming that jsmith is the user's short name).
NOTE: The feature associated with the Management Processor Password field is not available at this time. This field is provided for forward compatibility with future releases. HPQLOMGC Operation The command line utility is intended to be used in conjunction with Insight Manager 7 and Systems Insight Manager.
User Guide Integrated Lights-Out IMPORTANT: Installing directory support for any management processor requires downloading the HP Smart Component. Refer to the "Pre-Migration Checklist (on page 206)" and the "HP Lights-Out Directory Package" sections for additional information. Extending the schema must be completed by a Schema Administrator.

Lights-Out DOS Utility In This Section Overview of the Lights-Out DOS Utility CPQLODOS Recommended Usage CPQLODOS General Guidelines Command Line Arguments RIBCL XML Commands for Overview of the Lights-Out DOS Utility CPQLODOS is a command line utility that is a part of the SmartStart Scripting Toolkit.
User Guide Integrated Lights-Out CPQLODOS Recommended Usage HP recommends using CPQLODOS /WRITE_XML=filename.ext to capture the current iLO settings. The output from the /WRITE_XML command should be used as a template for further CPQLODOS scripting. For security reasons, the /WRITE_XML command does not output the passwords for current user accounts or the iLO Advanced Pack license key.

User Guide Integrated Lights-Out RIBCL XML Commands for CPQLODOS CPQLODOS uses the same RIBCL XML commands as CPQLOCFG for the <MOD_NETWORK_SETTINGS>, and the <MOD_DIR_CONFIG> XML scripting language blocks. Only those parameters unique to CPQLODOS are discussed. For more information on <MOD_NETWORK_SETTINGS>, and <MOD_DIR_CONFIG>...
ADD_USER This command is used to add a user to iLO. If multiple ADD_USER commands are in the XML script, CPQLODOS will use only the settings from the last command. Example: <ADD_USER USER_NAME = "James Madison" USER_LOGIN = "jmadison" PASSWORD = "president"> </ADD_USER>...
User Guide Integrated Lights-Out Blank user login name not allowed. Maximum length is 39 characters. SET_LICENSE This command is used to apply the iLO Advanced Pack License key to the iLO. On a ProLiant BL p-class server, this parameter is not necessary because the advanced features are activated by default.
Out XML scripting language. Perl scripts require a valid user ID and password with appropriate privileges. Sample XML scripts for Lights-Out devices and a sample Perl script are available on the HP website (http://www.hp.com/servers/lights-out) in the Best Practices section. XML Enhancements Previous versions of iLO firmware do not return properly formatted XML syntax.
<?xml version="1.0"?> and before the XML script is sent. If placing the tag in the XML script, the tag should be placed before <RIBCL version="2.0">. If you are using the Perl script provided by HP, then the bold line in the following example can be added to return properly formatted XML syntax.
Opening an SSL Connection Perl scripts must open an SSL connection to the device's HTTPS port, by default port 443. For example: use Socket; use Net::SSLeay qw(die_now die_if_ssl_error); Net::SSLeay::load_error_strings(); Net::SSLeay::SSLeay_add_ssl_algorithms(); Net::SSLeay::randomize(); # opens an ssl connection to port 443 of the passed host sub openSSLconnection($) my $host = shift;...
User Guide Integrated Lights-Out Net::SSLeay::connect($ssl) and die_if_ssl_error("ERROR: ssl connect"); print STDERR 'SSL Connected '; print 'Using Cipher: ' . Net::SSLeay::get_cipher($ssl) if $debug; print STDERR "\n\n"; return $ssl; Sending the XML Header and Script Body After the connection is established, the first line of script sent must be an XML document header, which tells the device's HTTPS Web server that the following content is an XML script.
$n++; $reply .= $lastreply; $lastreply = Net::SSLeay::read($ssl); die_if_ssl_error("ERROR: ssl read"); if($lastreply eq "") sleep(2); # wait 2 sec for more text. $lastreply = Net::SSLeay::read($ssl); last READLOOP if($lastreply eq ""); sleep(2); # wait 2 sec for more text. $lastreply = Net::SSLeay::read($ssl); last READLOOP if($lastreply eq "");...
User Guide Integrated Lights-Out PERL scripts must send the XML header before sending the body of the script. PERL scripts must provide script data fast enough to prevent the device from timing out. XML scripts cannot contain the update firmware command, which requires extra work on the part of the PERL script to open the file containing the firmware image and send it to the device.

User Guide Integrated Lights-Out Event Log Display Virtual Serial Port session login failure from: User MS-DOS® Error Codes The CPQLODOS utility sends the MS-DOS® shell a 0 (zero) when no error occurred or a 1 (one) when an error is detected. This can be misleading in that an error might have occurred even if a 0 is returned to the shell.
Hardware iLO uses standard Ethernet cabling, which includes CAT5 UTP with RJ-45 connectors. Straight-through cabling is necessary for a hardware link to a standard Ethernet hub. Use a crossover cable for a direct PC connection. Software The iLO Management Port must be connected to a network that is connected to a DHCP server, and iLO must be on the network before power is applied.
User Guide Integrated Lights-Out Is the password complying with password restrictions? For example, are there case-sensitive characters in the password? Is an unsupported browser being used? Login Name and Password Not Accepted If you have connected to iLO but it does not accept your login name and password, you must verify that your login information is configured correctly.
In addition, the iLO Management Port must be configured with the IP address of the WINS or DDNS server. You can use DHCP to configure the DHCP server with the necessary IP addresses. You can also enter the IP addresses through RBSU or by selecting Network Settings on the Administration tab.
User Guide Integrated Lights-Out Inability to Access iLO Using Telnet If you cannot access iLO using Telnet, you must verify the Remote Console Port Configuration and Remote Console Data Encryption on the Global Settings screen. If Remote Console Port Configuration is set to Automatic, the Remote Console applet enables port 23, starts a session, and then closes port 23 when the session is completed.
SSL initialization If you are using a client workstation that contains more than one enabled NIC, such as a wireless card and a network card, a routing issue might prevent you from accessing the diagnostic port. To resolve this issue: 1.
User Guide Integrated Lights-Out NOTE: If a network connection is established, you may have to wait up to 90 seconds for the DHCP server request. ProLiant BL p-Class servers have a diagnostic port available. Connecting a live network cable to the diagnostic port will cause iLO to automatically switch from the iLO port to the diagnostic port.
Proxy Server Issues If the Web browser software is configured to use a proxy server, it will not connect to the iLO IP address. To resolve this issue, configure the browser not to use the proxy server for the IP address of iLO. For example, in Internet Explorer, select Tools, Internet Options, Connections, LAN Settings, Advanced, and then enter the iLO IP address or DNS name in the Exceptions field.
In the unlikely event that it is necessary, setting the iLO Security Override Switch also enables you to flash the iLO boot block. The boot block is exposed until iLO is reset. HP recommends that you disconnect iLO from the network until the reset is complete.
Troubleshooting Mouse Problems The following sections discuss troubleshooting mouse hardware or software issues. Local USB Mouse and Linux If you are running Linux on your server and the local mouse is USB, your mouse will not work in Remote Console. To correct this issue, configure the system to use two mice.
User Guide Integrated Lights-Out Format is operating-system based. You might need to change the format of the examples for your operating system. For example, Red Hat 3.0 uses Mouse0 for the default label, but SUSE 8 uses Mouse. Follow the naming conventions for your operating system.
1. Select Start>Settings>Control Panel>Display>Settings>Advanced>Troubleshooting> from the Windows® Server 2003 desktop applet. 2. Set the slider control to full hardware acceleration. For more information, refer to the "Optimizing Performance for Graphical Remote Console (on page 54)" section. Emulating a PS/2 Keyboard in a Headless Server Environment iLO will emulate a PS/2 keyboard in a headless server environment.
User Guide Integrated Lights-Out Mozilla 1.6 Mozilla 1.7 RC3 Netscape 7.1 Red Hat 8 Professional Mozilla 1.6 Mozilla 1.7 RC3 Netscape 7.1 SuSE 9 Professional Mozilla 1.7 RC3 Netscape 7.1 United Linux 1.0 Professional Mozilla 1.7 RC3 Netscape 7.1 Inability to Navigate the Single Cursor of the Remote Console to Corners of the Remote Console Window In some cases, you may be unable to navigate the mouse cursor to the corners of the Remote Console window.
Remote Console No Longer Opens on the Existing Browser Session With the addition of the Terminal Services Pass-Through function, the behavior of the Remote Console applet is slightly different from previous versions of iLO firmware. If a Remote Console session is already open, and the Remote Console link is clicked again, the Remote Console session will not restart.
User Guide Integrated Lights-Out One known example of this issue is during the Linux booting and posting process, in which some of the POST messages can be lost. A possible repercussion is that a keyboard response will be requested by the boot process and will be missed.
Console for the majority of available text mode interfaces in current operating systems. Extended text configuration beyond the 80 x 25 configuration is not displayed correctly when using telnet or SSH. HP recommends configuring the text application in 80 x 25 mode or use the iLO Remote Console applet provided by the web interface.
User Guide Integrated Lights-Out Troubleshooting Video and Monitor Problems The following sections discuss items to be aware of when attempting to resolve video and monitor issues. General Guidelines The client screen resolution must be greater than the screen resolution of the remote server.
Troubleshooting Virtual Media Problems The following sections discuss troubleshooting Virtual Media issues. Virtual Drive Listing When using Terminal Services pass-through on a server running Windows® 2000, a Virtual CD-ROM session does not appear on the server. This issue does not exist if the server is running Windows® 2003. The same behavior occurs when connecting to Terminal Services directly.
User Guide Integrated Lights-Out Cookie Sharing Between Browser Instances and iLO iLO uses browser session cookies in part to distinguish separate logins—each browser window displays as a separate user login—while actually sharing the same active session with the iLO. These multiple logins can confuse the browser. This confusion can appear as an iLO issue is a manifestation of typical browser behavior.
While User1 is logged in, if another user, User2, opens another browser window on the same client and logs in, the second login overwrites the cookie generated in the original User1 session. Assuming that User2 is a different user account, a different current frame is built, and a new session is granted.
Incorrect Time or Date of the Entries in the Event Log You can update the time and date on iLO by running the RBSU. This utility automatically sets the time and date on the processor using the server time and date.
User Guide Integrated Lights-Out 1. Attempt to connect to iLO through the Web browser. If you are unable to connect, then there is a communication problem. 2. Attempt to ping iLO. If you are successful, then the network is working. Attempt to open an FTP session to the IP address or DNS name of iLO.
1. Download the latest iLO firmware SoftPaq. Select the SoftPaq image for diskettes and save it to the hard drive. The SoftPaq can be downloaded from the HP website (http://www.hp.com/servers/lights-out). 2. Execute the SoftPaq to create diskettes. Complete this procedure only on the iLO host server: 1.
User Guide Integrated Lights-Out 8. Press the Enter key to reprogram another device, or press the Esc key to return to the A:\ prompt. It might be necessary to set the Security Override Switch to perform the ROMPaq upgrade. The ROMPaq program informs you if the Security Override Switch must be set.
If a firmware upgrade is completed or a network setting is changed, iLO also resets. The HP Management Agents 5.40 and later have the ability to reset iLO. To reset iLO, select the Reset iLO option on the HP Management Agent Web page under the iLO section.
User Guide Integrated Lights-Out You can also manually force the iLO management processor to reset by clicking Apply on the Network Settings page. You do not need to change any parameters before clicking Apply. Server Name Still Present after ERASE Utility is Executed The Server Name field is communicated to iLO through the Insight Manager Agents.
