Reset iLO Admin Password

I tripped over the following blog post that describes a simple way to reset the iLO Administrator Password without having to reboot the server:

To summarize, follow the steps below to reset the password for the iLO-account named Administrator:

  1. Install “HP Lights-Out Online Configuration Utility” if it is not already installed in the server.
  2. Create an XML-file with the following contents:
    <ribcl VERSION=“2.0”>
    <login USER_LOGIN=“Administrator” PASSWORD=“boguspassword”>
      <user_INFO MODE=“write”>
       <mod_USER USER_LOGIN=“Administrator”>
        <password value=“newpass”/>

  3. Execute the following command in a command prompt on the server:
    HPONCFG.exe /f xml-file-above.xml /l log.txt > output.txt
