Possible to configure HP DL360 ILO by command Line? (Red Hat Linux)

We have a remote Red Hat Linux server with ILO card, plugged into the LAN. However the onsite engineer forgot to configure the ILO (Press F8) and put in the IP address.

I am able to SSH/Telnet into the server. is it possible to download the configuration software and remotely configure the ILO?

And BTW - the iLo takes DHCP by default - If you have a DHCP server, check it to see if it got an IP...
By default, each server comes with a pre-configured iLo. The configuration of ILO has printed on a paper tag that hung in front of the server. Normally, iLO configures DHCP. The default DNS name for the ILO is ILOSerialNumber (whereas SerialNumber is the server SN). The password is also printed on the tag (random password). Check with someone who has touch on the server to obtain that information. Once you login ILO (via web browser) you can change DNS name, password, IP.... at will.

The ILO is connect to the LAN Switch, but it is not getting an IP. I don' t the DHCP servers getting hosts.

The Unix configuration rpm required another component (ILO SNMP?) not downloaded. Anyone knows these files needed and the HP location?
