HP Proliant DL140 BMC (iLO) Login Credentials
Posted on 2010-11-14
We recently had to have a mainboard replaced on our DL140.
We have been trying to access the BMC (iLO).
We managed to discover within the BIOS settings that there was an IPMI area and that gave us an IP Address via DHCP.
However, for some reason when accessing the iLO through a browser or by telnet, the default admin login credentials (admin | admin), are not being recognised.
I can log in using Operator | Operator but that only gives me a simplified view and no access to any of the Virtual Power.
Does anyone know of way of resetting the admin credentials - or blanking it out totally so I can set it back up.
Someone suggested removing the CMOS battery but someone else said that would only clear the IP details not any of the user logins.
I am working on it remotely so am limited in what I can do (i.e. Dip Switches etc.) but if I can assured it will work then I can make the 4 hour trip.
Thanks in advance.
