HP DL360 G7 Server - Power On

We have a HP Server DL360 G7 Server that shuts down daily in the evening. Can anyone please advise how I can setup a scheduled task that will power up the the server in the morning on specific days? On the older servers  G4 and G5

I created a scheduled task from a workstation on the network that can communicate with the ILO Network of the server that needs to be switched on. For eg;

C:\Hpscript\CPQLOCFG.EXE -S 10.10.78.219 -f c:\Hpscript\poweron.xml

10.10.78.219 is the ILO Network value of the server that is to be switched on.

The poweron.xml has the following values;

<RIBCL VERSION="2.0">
   <LOGIN USER_LOGIN="username" PASSWORD="password">
      <SERVER_INFO MODE="write">
         <PRESS_PWR_BTN/>
      </SERVER_INFO>
    </LOGIN>
</RIBCL>

I assume as the G7 Servers are more new then it needs to be done differently. If someone could please help that would be much appreciated.

The CPQLOCFG.EXE tool has been replaced by HPQLOCFG.EXE starting with iLO 3.

You can download it here: http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/swd/public/detail?swItemId=MTX_d7e7146b56324eb0879f0a98e2

Replace the path to CPQLOCFG.exe with the path to the new HPQLOCFG.EXE tool in your script and you should be good to go. Your XML file will still work as the RIBCL scripting language hasn't changed.

Your new command should look like this:
C:\Scripts\HPQLOCFG.EXE -S 10.10.78.219 -f c:\Hpscript\poweron.xml
