Password Reset - Lights-Out 100i DL180 G6

[ Edited ]

I just got my hands on a DL180 G6 that I don't have the user/pass for its iLO , I have tried upgrading the iLO firmware, downgrading and still can't log in with the default user/pass...

 

Is there a procedure to reset the iLO on this server to factory?

 

I'll really appreciate your inputs.

 

Thanks.

Re: Password Reset - Lights-Out 100i DL180 G6

I have managed to reset the username and password on my DL180 G6

 

Instructions

 

1.       Create a DOS bootable disk (floppy or USB key),

Instructions :http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-security/how-can-i-make-a-ms-dos-boot-dis...


2.      Download the IPMItool from this link: http://www.intel.com/design/servers/ipmi/ipmi_tool.htm


3.      Extract the zip to a folder on the bootable USB drive

 

4.      Create a DOS bat file "resetp.bat"  to run 

"ipmitool.exe 20 18 47 03 02 61 64 6d 69 6e 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00" whitout the quotes

 

5.      If you need to reset your user name create another bat file (resetu.bat) with this 

"ipmitool.exe 20 18 45 03 61 64 6d 69 6e 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00" whitout the quotes


6. Boot the server using the bootable USB disk

7. run resetp.bat after server bootup to reset your password

 

8. run resetu.bat after server bootup to reset your password

 

 

Remember to configure your ipmi connection strings on the server bios in order to get access to it....

 

Hope it helps others with the same problem.
