Cant wipe Lights out 100 ILO on a HP DL160 G6
Posted on 2013-01-31
Hi, I cant get into the embedded ilo or 'Lights Out 100' as its called in a HP Dl160 G6 server.
The admin/admin or operator/operator defaults dont work, and no one can remember what it was originally set to.
HP support have told me to set the jumper D on jumper block J27, power the server on and off, drain the power for 5 mins, power back on to reset the admin password back to the default of admin/admin
This hasnt worked, and didnt even wipe the ilo config in the F10 Bios, where the IP address was still set, along with all the other settings, ie shared mode, for the NIC1 etc.
I can get the login prompt to appear, it just wont authenticate, have tried different browsers, IE and Chrome. Both fail, and show the Lights out 100 screen after the login fails.
HP then told me to try the B jumper and follow the same procedure as above, which I did. This seemed to work, as during the post startup it said 'Password changed etc etc" in RED, but I think the only wiped the BIOS securoty password,which wasnt set anyway, as the ILo password still didnt default.
Any ideas ?
PS I am referring to the cut down ilo option called Lights Out 100 that the Dl160 G6 comes with as ilo. I know the differences, the full ILO has a dedicated ILO port on the rear of the servers, our smaller model, doesnt have this full ILO feature.
