Features of the Remote Insight
Lights-Out Edition
The Compaq Remote Insight Lights-Out Edition board is a PCI board installed
in a Compaq ProLiant™ server to provide remote server manageability. It can
be accessed from a network client using a standard Web browser. The Remote
Insight Lights-Out Edition board provides keyboard, mouse, and video
capability for a server, regardless of the state of the host operating system or
host server.
A built-in processor, memory, Network Interface Card (NIC), ROM, and
standard external power supply make the Remote Insight Lights-Out Edition
board independent of the host server and its operating system. This design
allows the Remote Insight Lights-Out Edition to provide remote access to any
authorized network client, to send alerts, and to perform other management
functions.
Using any standard Web browser, you can:
■
Remotely access the console of the host server, including all text mode
and graphics mode screens with full keyboard and mouse controls.
■
Remotely power up, power down, or reboot the host server.
■
Remotely boot a host server to a virtual floppy image to perform a ROM
upgrade or to install an operating system.
■
Access the Compaq Insight Manager™ XE agents on a host server
through the Remote Insight Lights-Out Edition.
■
Send alerts from the Remote Insight Lights-Out Edition board regardless
of the state of the host server.

(SNMP) alerting, and diagnose the Remote Insight Lights-Out Edition
board using Compaq Insight Manager XE.
Features
The Remote Insight Lights-Out Edition board offers the following features:
■
Virtual Graphical Remote Console
The Remote Insight Lights-Out Edition provides embedded hardware
graphical remote console capabilities that turn any standard browser into
a virtual desktop, giving the user full control over the host server’s
display, keyboard, and mouse. The operating system independent
console supports text and graphic modes, displaying remote host server
activities, such as shutdown and startup operations.
■
Power Cycle (Reset)
If the remote host server is not responding, this feature allows an
administrator to initiate a cold reboot to bring the server back online.
This feature is available on all ProLiant servers that the Remote Insight
Lights-Out Edition board supports.
■
Virtual Floppy Drive
With the Virtual Floppy Drive, an administrator can easily direct a
remote host server to boot and use a standard 1.44 MB diskette from
anywhere on the network, thus saving time and increasing efficiency by
eliminating the need to visit a remote server just to insert and use a
diskette. This feature allows administrators to carry out any of the
following functions remotely:
GRunning
Compaq User Diagnostics on remote host servers
GApplying
ROMPaq™ upgrades to remote servers
GDeploying
an operating system on remote servers from network
drives
GPerforming

Optimized Performance for Remote
Console
Starting with firmware version 2.31, the remote console application has been
optimized for greater performance.
The remote console will operate with greater or lesser success depending on
the settings of the remote server. Ideally, the remote server operating system
resolution should be the same resolution, or smaller, than the browser
computer. The higher the resolution of the remote server, the slower the
overall performance. For best results, use the following settings.
Browser Settings
Use the following browser settings to optimize performance:
■
Display Properties Setting
GSelect
an option greater than 256 video colors.
GSelect
a greater screen resolution than the remote server’s screen
resolution.
■
Remote Console
GSelect
Remote Console (Full) to maximize the viewable area.
GIn
Settings, select the operating system to match the server’s
operating system and the character set to match the remote server’s
character set. For Red Hat Linux 6.2 and 7.0, SCO UnixWare 7.x,
and SCO OpenServer 5.x, you would select the Unix operating
system.

Single and 2-Cursor Modes for Remote Console
2-Cursor Mode
The Remote Console 2 cursor option uses two mouse cursors in the remote
console window to represent the remote server’s mouse cursor and the local
client's mouse cursor. The local client cursor is seen as a crosshair in the
remote console window. The 2-cursor option is supported with Java 1.1 VM
and later. If the two cursors drift apart, they can be synchronized and brought
back together. Synchronize remote and local cursor using any of the following
procedures:
1. Click Sync Mouse above the remote console frame.
2. Right-click, drag, and move the local crosshair cursor to align with the
remote server’s mouse cursor.
3. Holding the Ctrl key, move the local crosshair cursor to align with the
remote server’s mouse cursor.
Single Cursor Mode
The Remote Console (Frame) and Remote Console (Full) options present a
single mouse cursor during remote console. Synchronization of two cursors is
eliminated, making navigation easier in the remote console window.
Single Cursor Mode requires Java 1.3.0_01 VM or greater. This download is
available on the Compaq website at
www.compaq.com/manage/jvm.html

Using the Graphical Remote Console to
Manage the Remote Host Server
The Remote Console feature of the RILOE board redirects the host server
console to the network client browser, providing full text and graphical mode
video, keyboard, and mouse access to the remote host server.
With the Remote Console, you have complete control over a remote host
server as if you were in front of it. You can access the remote file system and
the network drives. The Remote Console allows you to change hardware and
software settings of the remote host server, install applications and drivers,
change remote server screen resolution, and gracefully shut down the remote
system.

Compaq Remote Insight Lights-Out Edition User Guide
With the Remote Console, you can observe POST boot messages as the
remote host server restarts and initiate ROM-based setup routines to configure
the remote host server’s hardware. When installing operating systems
remotely, the graphical Remote Console lets you view and control the host
server screen seamlessly throughout the installation process.
NOTE: Whenever the Remote Insight Lights-Out Edition resets the Remote Console
settings will change back to the default settings.
NOTE: While using 2 cursor mode, when you move the network client’s mouse pointer
over the remote host server screen displayed in the Remote Console, the local mouse
pointer will turn into a crosshair and the remote host server’s mouse pointer will remain
unchanged.
NOTE: If the colors displayed on the Remote Console screen do not appear to be correct,
you can adjust the color palette by clicking Settings and selecting the correct operating
system.

Enhanced Features of the Remote Console
The four buttons at the top of the Remote Console provide the RILOE board
with enhanced features. Each button has the following functions.
Refresh
There may be instances when the Remote Console screen is not
displaying the latest data. Click Refresh to force the RILOE board to
repaint the screen.
Sync Mouse
While using 2-cursor mode, Sync Mouse attempts to synchronize the
cursor movement of the local mouse with the cursor movement of the
remote mouse. To synchronize the movement of both cursors, click
Sync Mouse and wait until the local mouse pointer stops moving.
IMPORTANT: Mouse speed synchronization will fail if you move the mouse while syncing
is in progress.
NOTE: Compaq recommends that you routinely synchronize the remote and local cursor.
When the local and remote mouse cursors move at the same speed, the
cursors can be automatically aligned by moving the local arrow cursor
outside the Remote Console frame, pausing for a moment, then moving
the local mouse cursor back into the Remote Console frame.
Compaq recommends that you try different mouse speed settings on the
remote host server to achieve the best mouse cursor synchronization.
For example, in Microsoft Windows NT Server 3.51 or 4.0, the slowest
mouse setting is the easiest to control. In Microsoft Windows 2000, the
average mouse speed setting is the easiest to control. Also, cursor
shadowing must be disabled.
Ctrl-Alt-Del
Use this button to enter the key sequence Ctrl+Alt+Del into the Remote
Console. You would use this key sequence to log on to Windows NT.

Settings
Use this button to change the default character set used by the Remote
Console and the type of operating system the Remote Console is
connecting to. Modifying the Remote Console settings ensures proper
operation of the Remote Console and correct display of colors and
characters.
Single Mouse Pointer in Remote Console
In the firmware releases prior to version 2.32, the mouse position in Remote
Console was indicated by a crosshair for the local mouse and an arrow
(typically) for the remote one. There has always been the need to synchronize
the two using methods such as clicking Sync Mouse above the remote console
screen or lining up the cursors using the CTRL key. For some operating
systems, it is recommended to use the 2-cursor mode for remote console. See
the “Optimized Performance for Remote Console” section in Chapter 4 for
specific operating system recommendations.
In version 2.32 and later, synchronization of cursors has been simplified with a
single-cursor mode for some operating systems, which means the local cursor
does not display when the mouse is over the remote console screen. This
feature removes the need to synchronize multiple cursors.
To enable the single mouse cursor mode in the remote console window, you
must download the Java 1.3.0_01 VM or later and install it on the client
machine. The remote server does not require any software to obtain a single
mouse pointer. You can download Java 1.3.0_01 VM from
www.compaq.com/manage/jvm.html
After the firmware is upgraded on the RILOE board and the Java 1.3.0_01 VM
is installed on the client machine, a single mouse cursor will be visible in the
remote console window. When the cursor is moved away from the remote
server screen, focus is transferred back to the client screen and the server’s
mouse cursor will display again.
The Java 1.3.0_01 VM must be plugged into the browser for the single-cursor
mode to work. If you do not want to download the updated JVM, there is an
option to use the browser’s 1.1 JVM and have two mouse cursors, as in
previous firmware releases.
The two mouse cursors option is available by selecting the Remote Console
(2-cursor) option in the Remote Console section of the Remote Insight
navigation frame.

Using the Remote Insight Lights-Out Edition 5-9
You implicitly select single-cursor mode when selecting Remote Console
(Frame) or Remote Console (Full). If the 1.3.0_01 JVM is not loaded, you
will be prompted to download the latest JVM. If the latest JVM can not be
loaded, a blank remote console screen is shown. You are still able to use the
2-cursor mode option, which supports 1.1 JVM.
Remote Console Views
The Remote Console provides two options for viewing the host server’s
screen: Frame View and Full Screen View.
Both views offer full control of the host server, but only the Frame View
feature allows the Remote Insight navigation frame to be displayed alongside
the Remote Console, which offers maximum control (see Figure 5-2). The
Full Screen View allows for optimum local display of higher screen
resolutions on the remote host server without having to scroll the local image
in the Remote Console. Hyperlinks at the top of the Remote Console screen
let you switch between viewing modes.
NOTE: High host server screen resolutions decrease the screen refresh rate of the
Remote Console. To improve the screen refresh rate of the Remote Console, Compaq
recommends lowering the remote host server screen resolution.
Remote Console Hot Keys
The Remote Console hot keys feature allows you to define up to six multiple
key combinations to be assigned to each hot key. When a hot key is pressed in
the Remote Console, the defined key combination (all keys pressed at the
same time) will be transmitted in place of the hot key to the remote host
server.

Troubleshooting the Remote Host Server
The RILOE board provides features for proactive system management and
efficient troubleshooting of server problems.
In addition to the Remote Console, you have access to overall server status
information, video replay of prior server resets, and other information gathered
by the Compaq Survey utility.
The Remote Insight Lights-Out Edition maintains a complete set of logs for
troubleshooting server problems. These logs are the Remote Insight Event Log
and the Integrated Management Log.
Full integration with Compaq Insight Manager XE provides warning of
potential problems by means of SNMP trap alerts displayed on a Compaq
Insight Manager XE console. This integration is achieved by installing and
configuring Compaq Insight agents on the remote server. See the “Enabling
SNMP Alerts” section in this chapter for more information.
Obtaining Additional Information Concerning the
State of the Remote Host Server
The Status option in the Server Information section of the Remote Insight
navigation frame provides comprehensive status information about the
following items:
■

Video Replays of Prior Server Reset Sequences
The Reset Sequences option in the Server Information section of the Remote
Insight navigation frame provides video replay of server reset sequences. This
option allows you to observe ROM-based POST messages and operating
system load messages of prior remote host server resets, including any error
messages displayed by the operating system before a server hang.
IMPORTANT: Reset Sequences require the use of the Remote Console. You will not be
able to access the Remote Console while replaying the reset sequences.

Progressive Delays for Failed Browser Login
Attempts
Another security feature of firmware version 2.32 and later is the progressive
delays for failed browser login attempts. After a series of three failed login
attempts by a user, the RILOE board imposes delays to subsequent logins.
This scenario continues until a valid login is completed.
This feature assists in defending against possible dictionary attacks against the
browser login port.
Restarting the Remote Host Server
Troubleshooting a remote host server may require restarting the remote
system. You can easily restart the remote host server by using the options
listed in the Power section of the Remote Insight navigation frame.
The first option, Reset Server,, performs a hardware-level cold boot reset and
is available regardless of the condition of the host server or the operating
system. The Reset Server feature allows the host server to be restarted
whenever the server is locked up or is in need of a reboot.
IMPORTANT: This type of reboot does not gracefully shut down the host server’s
operating system. For a graceful shutdown of a server, use Compaq Insight Manager XE
or the Remote Console.
To restart a host server:
1. Click Reset Server in the Power section of the Remote Insight
navigation frame. You will see a confirmation screen followed by a
warning.
2. To begin rebooting the host server, click Confirm.
3. After the remote host server reboots, a Remote Console session begins,
allowing you to observe ROM-based POST messages and operating
system load messages.
The second option is the Virtual Power Button, which will only work if the
host server was configured to use this device when the RILOE board was
installed. If the Virtual Power Button option has not been installed in the host
server, using this option has no effect. See Chapter 2 for details about enabling
the Virtual Power Button feature in the host server.

Clicking Virtual Power Button in the Power section of the Remote Insight
navigation frame is analogous to pressing the physical power button of the
host server. The Virtual Power Button turns the host server’s power on or off,
depending on the power state of the host server.
IMPORTANT: Using the Virtual Power Button option does not gracefully shut down the
host server’s operating system. For a graceful shutdown of a server’s operating system,
use Compaq Insight Manager XE or the Remote Console before using the Virtual Power
Button option.
Using the Virtual Floppy Drive
With the Virtual Floppy Drive, an administrator can easily direct a host server
to boot and use a standard 1.44-MB diskette from anywhere on the network by
means of a standard Web browser. The Virtual Floppy Drive eliminates the
need to visit a remote host server to insert and use a diskette, enabling remote
operating system installation from a network drive and remote host server
ROM updates.
Use the Virtual Floppy Drive options to carry out any of the following
functions:
■
Running Compaq User Diagnostics by booting remote host servers from
a diagnostic diskette
NOTE: Compaq recommends that you first delete the SYSMON2.TM file before using
Compaq User Diagnostics with the Virtual Floppy Drive.
■
Applying ROMPaq upgrades to remote host servers
■
Deploying an operating system on remote host servers from network
drives
■
Performing disaster recovery of failed operating systems
IMPORTANT: If the Virtual Floppy Drive feature is not present, flash the Remote Insight
Lights-Out Edition option ROM. RILOE boards with a firmware 2.11 or earlier will require a
ROM update for this feature. The ROM update can be obtained from the following website:
www.compaq.com/lights-out
NOTE: The Virtual Floppy Drive feature does not support Remote Insight Lights-Out
Edition firmware upgrade. To upgrade the firmware, use the firmware upgrade feature in
the Remote Insight Lights-Out Edition.

Uploading a Diskette Image to the Remote Server
The Insert Virtual Floppy option allows you to send a diskette image file to the
RILOE board in the remote host server. The RILOE board treats the diskette
image file as a standard diskette.
IMPORTANT: The Virtual Floppy Drive has been designed and tested with Microsoft DOS,
Windows 95, and Windows 98 bootable diskettes. The Virtual Floppy Drive will only work
correctly with an operating system that accesses diskette drives by means of standard
BIOS Interrupt 13 calls. The Virtual Floppy Drive is not compatible with protected-paging
mode applications such as EMM386.
NOTE: Image files of diskettes are created and stored locally on your hard drive or on a
network drive with the Compaq Diskette Image Utility. This utility is available for download
from the Compaq website at
www.compaq.com/lights-out
For additional information about this utility, see the section “Using the Compaq Diskette
Image Utility” later in this chapter.
To upload a diskette image to the RILOE board in the remote host server:
1. Click Insert Virtual Floppy, located in the Virtual Floppy Drive
section of the Remote Insight navigation frame.

board in the host server.
4. When the upload is complete, the screen changes to the Virtual Floppy
Status screen. If needed, use the Virtual Floppy Status screen to
modify options for the Virtual Floppy Drive.
IMPORTANT: The external power of the internal 16-pin cable (on supported servers)
must be installed when booting to a virtual floppy, otherwise the image will be lost when
the server is reset.
NOTE: The Virtual Floppy Drive can hold only one diskette image file at a time. The
uploaded diskette image file will remain in the Virtual Floppy Drive until it is either
replaced with another diskette image file or erased from the Virtual Floppy Drive by
clicking the Eject Virtual Floppy button on the Virtual Floppy Status screen. The
diskette image file will also be erased if power to the RILOE board is lost. Logging out of
the RILOE board will not erase the diskette image file from the Virtual Floppy Drive.

Changing Virtual Floppy Drive Settings
The Virtual Floppy Status screen allows you to view and change current
settings for the Virtual Floppy Drive. Changes you make to the virtual diskette
drive boot and write-protect options take effect when you click Submit
Changes.
IMPORTANT: A remote host server can use files uploaded to a Virtual Floppy Drive only if
the Virtual Floppy Drive is active. The Virtual Floppy Drive will be active when the RILOE
board has restarted the host server using a diskette image file uploaded to the Virtual
Floppy Drive. The Virtual Floppy Drive will remain active until the remote host server is
restarted with its own operating system.
NOTE: Although the Virtual Floppy Drive is active, the remote host server’s physical
diskette drive will be temporarily disabled. The host server’s diskette drive will be reenabled when the host server is restarted with its own operating system and the Virtual
Floppy Drive is not active.
The Virtual Floppy Boot option has three settings:
■
Boot Always— This setting instructs the RILOE board to always boot
the host server from the diskette image file in the Virtual Floppy Drive.
If this setting is checked, Virtual Floppy Status shows the virtual drive
as active after the server has restarted.
■
Boot Once—This setting instructs the RILOE board to boot the host
server one time from the diskette image file in the Virtual Floppy Drive.
If this setting is checked, Virtual Floppy Status shows the virtual drive
as active after the server has restarted.
■
No Boot— This is the default setting for the Virtual Floppy Drive. It
instructs the RILOE board not to boot the host server from the diskette
image file in the Virtual Floppy Drive. This setting has no effect on the
Virtual Floppy Drive status.
Copying Files on the Remote Server to the Virtual
Floppy Drive
The Write Protect Virtual Floppy option in the Virtual Floppy Status

Enabling SNMP Alerts
The Manage Alerts option in the Administration section of the Remote
Insight navigation frame allows you to specify which type of alert messages
will be forwarded from the host server and RILOE board to a Compaq
Insight Manager XE console. The Manage Alerts option also allows you to
send test alerts and to clear pending alerts. In both instances, the alerts will be
displayed on a Compaq Insight Manager XE console.
NOTE: Users with supervisor status can configure alerts for all users, but this status is
not a requirement for alert configuration. Any user with login access to the RILOE board
can configure how alerts will be received by modifying the logged-on user profile.
There are two types of alerts that can be received:
■
Host OS Generated SNMP Traps—The Insight Management agents
provided for each supported network operating system generate these
alerts. These agents must be installed on the host server to receive these
alerts. Alerts are sent to Compaq Insight Manager XE clients on the
network and forwarded asynchronously by the RILOE board to users
that have been configured to receive them.
■
Compaq Remote Insight Board Alerts—These alert the RILOE board
detects conditions, and they are independent of the host server operating
system. These alerts can be Compaq Insight Manager XE SNMP traps
or pager alerts. Alerts include major events, such as host server power
outage or host server reset and RILOE board events, such as a
disconnected keyboard cable or an unauthorized login attempt.
To configure alerts:
1. Log on to the RILOE board using an account that has supervisor status.
NOTE: Users with supervisor status can configure alerts for all users. While logged on,
users without supervisor status can configure alerts only for their user account.

Trying the Pocket PC feature, note the following:
■
User authentication is required for access to the RILOE board. After
authentication, the Pocket PC user remains logged in until the session is
ended by closing the Pocket PC browser. To close the browser, tap the
Q key, tap Close active task, and stop the browser.
■
When logging in to the RILOE board with the Pocket PC browser, do
not select the Save Password option. Otherwise, the next time the
browser is used to connect to the same RILOE board, the browser will
automatically authenticate by presenting the saved user ID and
password. Consequently, the Pocket PC user cannot log on as a different
user.
Save Password is not enabled by default. In the case where Save
Password was enabled by the user and a different user cannot log in
through the Pocket PC, you must log on to the RILOE board using the
Windows desktop browser and change or delete the user ID or change
the password, so automatic authentication by the Pocket PC will no
longer match.
■
Pocket PC users may be unable to establish a connection to a RILOE
board with version 2.32 (128-bit SSL) because of insufficient security
software in the Pocket PC browser. The error that displays is
“A connection cannot be established,” however, the issue is that the
browser requires 128-bit encryption. To resolve this issue, the user must
download the Microsoft 128-bit Encryption Pack for Pocket PCs from
Microsoft. This scenario does not occur with version 2.32 (40-bit SSL).
The encryption pack can be downloaded from Microsoft at
www.microsoft.com/mobile/pocketpc/downloads/ssl128.asp

Group Administration
This chapter discusses administration for a group of Remote Insight
Lights-Out Edition boards by using the Compaq Lights-Out Configuration
Utility executable file, CPQLOCFG.EXE. This executable can be utilized
through either Compaq Insight Manager XE or batch processing.
NOTE: The commands listed in this document are based on the 2.40 firmware update. If
you have not done so already, download the 2.40 update from the Compaq website at
www.compaq.com/lights-out
NOTE: Due to functional changes and the expansion of the command language, the 2.40
update is not backwards compatible with earlier versions of firmware. To update a RILOE
board that is on firmware version 2.32 or earlier, you must use a browser or ROMPaq.
NOTE: The commands for firmware version 2.40 should not be used on a RILOE board
containing the firmware version 2.32 or prior. The commands for firmware version 2.32 or
prior should not be used on a RILOE board containing the 2.40 firmware update.

Compaq Insight Manager XE
After the firmware has been updated, the IT administrator can manage
multiple Remote Insight boards through Compaq Insight Manager XE. The
four components of group administration are Remote Insight board Command
Language (RIBCL), the Compaq Lights-Out Configuration Utility, Query
Definition in Compaq Insight Manager XE, and Application Launch.
Compaq Insight Manager XE discovers the Compaq Remote Insight
Lights-Out Edition boards as management processors. During this process, it
also discovers Remote Insight board/PCI as management processors. When
group administration is performed, the Remote Insight boards/PCI generates
an error. Exclude these boards during the Query Definition process.
Compaq Insight Manager XE uses the Compaq Lights-Out Configuration
Utility to send an RIBCL file to a group of Remote Insight Lights-Out Edition
boards to manage the user accounts for those boards. The boards then perform
the action designated by the RIBCL file and send a response to the log file.
Group Administration 6-3
Remote Insight Board Command Language
The RIBCL is a dialect of XML. The information presented in the XML file is
not designed to display information in a Web browser but is designed to
enable secure communication between the Remote Insight Lights-Out Edition
board and the host application.
See Appendix C for a complete listing of RIBCL tags and error messages.
See Appendix C for a sample script used for adding, modifying, or deleting a
user on a Remote Insight Lights-Out Edition board.
Compaq Lights-Out Configuration Utility
The Compaq Lights-Out Configuration Utility is used to execute the RIBCL
on the Remote Insight Lights-Out Edition boards. The executable file for the
utility is CPQLOCFG.EXE. This file can be downloaded from the Compaq
website:
www.compaq.com/lights-out
The Compaq Lights-Out Configuration Utility must reside on the same server
as Compaq Insight Manager XE. The Compaq Lights-Out Configuration
Utility generates two types of error messages: runtime and syntax. A runtime
error occurs when an invalid action is requested.
NOTE: Runtime errors are logged to the following directory:
C:\PROJ FILES\COMPAQ\COMPAQ INSIGHT MANAGER XE
A syntax error occurs when an invalid XML tag is encountered. When a
syntax error occurs, the Compaq Lights-Out Configuration Utility stops
running and logs the error in the runtime script and output log file.
NOTE: Syntax errors take the format of “Syntax error: expected ‘x’ but found ‘y’” as
shown in the following example:
Syntax error: expected USER_LOGIN=userlogin but found USER_NAME=username
See Appendix C for a complete listing of errors.

Batch Processing
Group administration can also be delivered to the Compaq Remote Insight
Lights-Out Edition boards through batch processing. The components used by
batch processing are the Compaq Lights-Out Configuration Utility, an RIBCL
file, and a batch file.
Compaq Lights-Out Configuration Utility
The Compaq Lights-Out Configuration Utility is used to execute the RIBCL
on the Compaq Remote Insight Lights-Out Edition boards. The executable for
the Compaq Lights-Out Configuration Utility is CPQLOCFG.EXE. This file
can be downloaded from the Compaq website at
www.compaq.com/lights-out
The following is an example of the Compaq Lights-Out Configuration Utility
command line and explanations of the switches:
CPQLOCFG.EXE –S SERVER_NAME –F C:\RIBCLFILE.TXT –L C:\LOGFILE.TXT –V
where:
■
-S is the switch that determines the Compaq Remote Insight Lights-Out
Edition board that is to be updated. This switch is either the DNS name
or IP address of the target server.
Do not use this switch if launching from Compaq Insight Manager XE.
■
-F is the switch that gives the location and name of the RIBCL file that
contains the actions to be performed on the board.
■
-L is the switch that defines where the log file will be generated and what
the file name will be. If this switch is omitted, a default log file named
with the DNS name or the IP address is created in the same directory
where CPQLOCFG is launched.
Do not use this switch if launching from Compaq Insight Manager XE.
■
-V is the optional switch that turns on the verbose message return. The
resulting log file will contain all commands sent to the RIB board, all
responses from the RIB board, and any errors. By default, only errors
and responses from GET commands will be logged without this switch.
■
-C will cause CPQLOCFG to check the syntax of the XML, but not open
a connection to the RIB.

Troubleshooting Video and Monitor
Problems
No Video after Installing the Remote Insight
Lights-Out Edition Board and Powering On the
Server
The Remote Insight Lights-Out Edition contains an integrated VGA controller.
When the controller board is first installed, the server detects this controller
and attempts to use it by switching video from the server’s integrated video
controller. Therefore, your monitor must be connected to the Remote Insight
Lights-Out Edition board. See the “Monitor Cable Connection” section in
Chapter 2.
If you have a PCI-based VGA controller installed in a server slot, you must
remove it for the VGA controller on the Remote Insight Lights-Out Edition to
work.
IMPORTANT: Some Compaq servers, such as the Prosignia 200 and the ProLiant 800,
contain PCI-based VGA controllers. These controllers must be removed to configure the
VGA controller on the Remote Insight Lights-Out Edition board.
The Remote Insight Lights-Out Edition board must be installed in a PCI slot
that is connected to the primary bus. See the “Determining an Available Slot”
section in Chapter 2 to ensure that the board is installed in an appropriate slot.
If your server is not listed in Table 2-1, refer to the Compaq website for an

Inability to Get SNMP Information from Compaq
Insight Manager XE when Connected to the Remote
Insight Network Interface
The agents running on the managed server supply the SNMP information
provided to Compaq Insight Manager XE. For those agents to pass information
through the Remote Insight Lights-Out Edition, the Remote Insight device
drivers must be installed. See the “Installing Remote Insight Lights-Out
Edition Device Drivers” section in Chapter 3 for installation instructions.
If you have installed the drivers and agents for the Remote Insight Lights-Out
Edition, verify that the Remote Insight Lights-Out Edition and the
management PC are on the same subnet. You can verify this quickly by
pinging the Remote Insight board from your management PC. See your
network administrator for proper routes to access the network interface of the
Remote Insight Lights-Out Edition.
Inability of Web Browser to Connect to the Remote
Insight Lights-Out Edition IP Address
If your Web browser software is configured to use a proxy server, it will not
connect to the Remote Insight Lights-Out Edition IP address. To resolve this
issue, configure your browser not to use the proxy server for the IP address of
the Remote Insight Lights-Out Edition. For example, in Internet Explorer,
select View, Options, Connection Settings, and then enter the IP address in
the Exceptions field.
NOTE: If your Remote Insight Lights-Out Edition is using 128-bit encryption, ensure that
your client browser supports 128-bit encryption.

Regulatory Compliance Notices
Federal Communications Commission
Notice
Part 15 of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Rules and
Regulations has established Radio Frequency (RF) emission limits to provide
an interference-free radio frequency spectrum. Many electronic devices,
including computers, generate RF energy incidental to their intended function
and are, therefore, covered by these rules. These rules place computers and
related peripheral devices into two classes, A and B, depending upon their
intended installation. Class A devices are those that may reasonably be
expected to be installed in a business or commercial environment. Class B
devices are those that may reasonably be expected to be installed in a
residential environment (that is, personal computers). The FCC requires
devices in both classes to bear a label indicating the interference potential of
the device as well as additional operating instructions for the user.
The rating label on the device shows which class (A or B) the equipment falls
into. Class B devices have an FCC Logo or FCC ID on the label. Class A
devices do not have an FCC Logo or FCC ID on the label. Once the class of
the device is determined, refer to the following corresponding statement.

Electrostatic Discharge
To prevent damage to the system, be aware of the precautions to follow when
setting up the system or when handling parts. A discharge of static electricity
from a finger or other conductor can damage system boards or other staticsensitive devices. This type of damage can reduce the life expectancy of the
device.
To prevent electrostatic damage, observe the following precautions:
■
Avoid hand contact by transporting and storing products in static-safe
containers.
■
Keep electrostatic-sensitive parts in their containers until they arrive at
static-free workstations.
■
Place parts on a grounded surface before removing them from their
containers.
■
Avoid touching pins, leads, or circuitry.
■
Always be properly grounded when touching a static-sensitive
component or assembly.

Compaq Remote Insight Lights-Out Edition User Guide
Grounding Methods
There are several methods for grounding. Use one or more of the following
methods when handling or installing electrostatic-sensitive parts:
■
Use a wrist strap connected by a ground cord to a grounded workstation
or computer chassis. Wrist straps are flexible straps with a minimum of
1 megaohm ± 10 percent resistance in the ground cords. To provide
proper grounding, wear the strap snug against the skin.
■
Use heel straps, toe straps, or boot straps at standing workstations. Wear
the straps on both feet when standing on conductive floors or dissipating
floor mats.
■
Use conductive field service tools.
■
Use a portable field service kit with a folding, static-dissipating work
mat.
If you do not have any of the suggested equipment for proper grounding, have
a Compaq authorized reseller install the part.
NOTE: For more information about static electricity, or for assistance with product
installation, contact your Compaq authorized reseller.

Remote Insight Board Command
Language
Remote Insight Board
Command Language
This section describes the Remote Insight Board Command Language
(RIBCL) tags, the parameters associated with the tags, and the errors that
might occur if an invalid action is requested. Each of the tags, along with their
respective parameters and error codes, are discussed in this guide and are
listed in the following sections.
IMPORTANT: Comments should not interrupt a command. An error message will be
generated in this case.
NOTE: The commands listed in this document are based on the 2.40 firmware update. If
you have not done so already, download the 2.40 update from the Compaq website at
www.compaq.com/lights-out
NOTE: Due to functional changes and the expansion of the command language, the 2.40
update is not backwards compatible with earlier versions of firmware. To update a RILOE
board that is on firmware version 2.32 or earlier, you must use a browser or ROMPaq.
NOTE: The commands for firmware version 2.40 should not be used on a RILOE board
containing the firmware version 2.32 or prior. The commands for firmware version 2.32 or
prior should not be used on a RILOE board containing the 2.40 firmware update.
C-2
Compaq Remote Insight Lights-Out Edition User Guide
RIBCL Guidelines
The following sections describe some general guidelines when utilizing
RIBCL.
XML Header
The XML header must be the first item that is not white space to be sent to the
Remote Insight Lights-Out Edition board. It tells the Remote Insight
Lights-Out Edition board that the connection is supposed to be an XML
connection, not an HTTP connection. The XML header is built into the utility
and has the following format:
<?xml version=”1.0”?>
General Guidelines
All of the commands are grouped by functionality. All commands that
manipulate user information are grouped together. This allows the firmware to
view the data to be manipulated as a block of information, similar to a text
document, allowing for multi-threaded access of the different kinds of
information.
An opening command opens a database. The database remains open until the
matching closing command is sent. All changes made within a single
command block are applied simultaneously when the database is closed. Any
errors within the block will cause the enclosed changes to be discarded.
An example of an opening and its matching closing command are as follows:
<USER_INFO>
</USER_INFO>
In the following sections, the opening and closing commands will be displayed
in the example.
Data Types
There are three data types that are allowed in the parameter. They are:
■
String
■
Specific string
■
Boolean string
Remote Insight Board Command Language
String
A string is any text enclosed in quotes. It can include spaces, numbers, or any
printable character. A string may start with either a double or single quote and
it must end with the same type of quote. The string may contain a quote if it is
different from the string delimiter quotes.
For example, if a string is started with a double quote, a single quote can be
used within the string and the string must be closed with a double quote.
Specific String
A specific string is one that is required to contain certain characters. In
general, you will have a choice of words that are accepted as correct syntax
and all other words will produce an error.
Boolean String
A Boolean string is a specific string that specifies a “yes” or “no” condition.
Acceptable boolean strings are “yes,” “y,” “no,” “n,” “true,” “t,” “false,” and
“f.” These strings are not case sensitive.
RIBCL
This command is used to start and end an RIBCL session. You can use it only
once to start an RIBCL session, and it must be the first command to display in
the script. The RIBCL tags are required to mark the beginning and the end of
the RIBCL document.
Example:
<RIBCL VERSION=“1.2”>
</RIBCL>
RIBCL Parameters
VERSION is a string that indicates the version of the RIBCL that the client
application is expecting to use. The VERSION string is compared to the
version of the RIBCL that the Remote Insight Lights-Out Edition board is
expecting, and an error is returned if the string and the version do not match.
The only acceptable string value for the VERSION parameter is “1.2.” The
VERSION parameter can never be blank.

Compaq Remote Insight Lights-Out Edition User Guide
RIBCL Errors
The possible RIBCL error messages include:
■
Unsupported RIBCL version. The supported version is 1.2.
■
Version must not be blank.
LOGIN
The LOGIN command provides the Remote Insight Lights-Out Edition board
with the information that will be used to authenticate the user who will
perform the RIBCL actions. The specified user must have supervisor
privileges. If the user does not have supervisor permission or is not a valid
user, then an error message will be returned. The application that sent the login
name is then expected to send a new LOGIN command or to send the /RIBCL
command to terminate the connection.
Example:
<LOGIN
USER_LOGIN = “username”
PASSWORD = “password”>
</LOGIN>
NOTE: If using firmware version 2.40 or later, users with user-only privileges are able to
change some of their own user settings. The user settings that can be changed are:
■
PASSWORD
■
SNMP_ADDRESS
■
OS_TRAPS
■
RIB_TRAPS
LOGIN Parameters
USER_LOGIN is the login name of the user during the session and has a
maximum length of 48 characters. The user must exist as a valid user with
supervisor privileges in the Remote Insight Lights-Out Edition board. This
data string is case sensitive and can never be blank.
PASSWORD is the password of the user that will log in to the Remote Insight
Lights-Out Edition board. The password has a minimum length of 8 characters
and a maximum length of 48 characters. The password is case sensitive and
can never be blank.
Remote Insight Board Command Language
LOGIN Errors
The possible LOGIN error messages include:
■
User login name was not found.
■
Password must not be blank.
USER_INFO
This command may only display within a LOGIN command. When the
Remote Insight Lights-Out Board parses this command, it reads the user
information database into memory and gets ready to edit it. Only commands
that are USER_INFO type commands are valid inside the USER_INFO block.
The USER_INFO command generates a response that indicates to the host
application whether the user information was successfully read or not. If the
user information is open for writing by another application, then this call will
fail.
Example:
<USER_INFO MODE = “write”>
</USER_INFO>
LOGIN Parameters
MODE tells the Remote Insight Lights-Out Edition board what you intend to
do with the user information. MODE has a maximum length of 10 characters.
Valid arguments are “read,” “write,” “r,” and “w.” These arguments are not
case sensitive. Write mode enables reading and writing, and other users cannot
open the user information. Read mode enables several users to open the user
information, but the users cannot change any user data.
USER_INFO Errors
A possible USER_INFO error message is:
Mode parameter must not be blank.

maximum length of 48 characters, can be an ASCII string containing any
combination of printable characters, and is case sensitive. This parameter must
never be blank.
Remote Insight Board Command Language
PASSWORD is the password that will be associated with the user. This
parameter has a maximum length of 48 characters and is an ASCII string that
may contain any combination of printable characters. PASSWORD must be at
least eight characters long and cannot contain both single and double quote
characters. The Remote Insight Board treats this string as being case sensitive.
This parameter must never be blank.
SNMP_ADDRESS is the address of the system that will receive the traps that
are sent to the user. This address has a maximum length of 50 characters and
can be any valid IP address or DNS name. This parameter is optional and
should be left out if the user is not to receive SNMP traps.
The following four parameters control a user’s rights. These parameters are
optional and may have a “Y” or “N” value, which grants or denies the right. If
the parameter is not entered, the value is assumed to be “N.”
SUPERVISOR_PRIV is a Boolean parameter that grants all of the other
permissions, even those that are marked with an “N” value or are blank. This
parameter is optional and must be left out if the user should not get
supervisory privileges.
LOGIN_PRIV is a Boolean parameter that allows the user to log into the
Remote Insight Lights-Out Edition board and use resources such as Web
pages. Marking this parameter with an “N” value effectively disables the
account without deleting it. (See the SUPERVISOR_PRIV parameter.)
REMOTE_CONS_PRIV is a Boolean parameter that gives permission for the
user to access the Remote Console functionality of the Remote Insight
Lights-Out Edition board. Leaving out this parameter will deny the user
Remote Console privileges, unless they have supervisory privileges.
RESET_SERVER_PRIV is a Boolean parameter that gives the user
permission to remotely reset the server or power it down. Leaving out this
parameter will deny the user server reset privileges, unless they have
supervisory privileges.
The following two parameters indicate whether the user should receive SNMP
traps. These parameters are optional and may have a “Y” or “N” value, which
grants or denies the right. If the parameter is not entered, the value is assumed
to be “N.”
OS_TRAPS is a Boolean parameter that, if set to “Y,” indicates that this user
will receive the SNMP traps generated by the operating system. An SNMP
address must be specified to receive the SNMP traps.

Compaq Lights-Out DOS Utility
The purpose of the Compaq Lights-Out DOS Utility (CPQLODOS) is to
provide a command line utility that a user can use to bootstrap a Remote
Insight Lights-Out Edition configuration into a new server.
CPQLODOS allows the user to configure a subset of the configuration
parameters exposed through:
■
F8 configuration
■
The Remote Insight Lights-Out Edition GUI
CPQLODOS is not intended for continued administration. The Compaq
Lights-Out Configuration Utility (CPQLOCFG) should be used for
administration purposes. See Appendix C in this guide for more information.
D-2
Compaq Remote Insight Lights-Out Edition User Guide
Prerequisites
The following are prerequisites for using CPQLODOS:
■
Familiarity with Compaq remote option boards
■
Familiarity with DOS batch scripting
Features
The following list details the features available through CPQLODOS:
■
Query NIC settings
■
Query DHCP configuration settings
■
Query RILOE user list
■
Query board type and firmware version
■
Modify NIC settings
■
Modify DHCP settings
■
Add a RILOE user
■
Capture the board configuration to a file
■
Load and apply a configuration to a RILOE board
■
Reload and apply a board’s configuration from a file
■
Detect a RILOE board
■
Support a ‘pause on error’ mode
■
Reset the RILOE board
Important Information
The following information should be read before using the CPQLODOS
utility.
Operating System Requirements
The CPQLODOS utility will only work under real MS-DOS or Windows 95
DOS (not a DOS window). It is not supported on any other operating system.
Compaq Lights-Out DOS Utility
CPQLODOS Utility
The CPQLODOS utility has been designed to fit on to a 1.44-MB floppy disk
with other utilities, DOS, and scripts. The utility runs under DOS 6, and the
Windows 95 floppy generated by the ROMPAQ software. It is not necessary
to use a memory expander to use this utility.
The utility is to be used only in a DOS environment (not a DOS shell under
Windows NT). If attempting to run CPQLODOS in a DOS shell under
Windows NT or Windows 2000, an error message similar to the following
displays:
CPQLODOS: RILOE bootstrap config utility.
(C) 2001 Compaq Computer Corporation
Version 1.0
No PCI BIOS found.
This is common under NT and other OSs where raw memory access is not permitted.
Please run this only under real MS-DOS or Windows 95 DOS (not DOS window).
The utility performs updates except in the following circumstances:
■
A virtual floppy is inserted.
NOTE: When using CPQLODOS, applying a configuration involves resetting RILOE board,
which will wipe out the Virtual Floppy image and leave the server in an indeterminate
state. For any scenario in which CPQLODOS would be used on a virtual floppy, the
CPQLOCFG utility should be used.
The CPQLODOS utility will not run if a virtual floppy is detected in the RILOE. A message is
sent to the console telling the user to eject the floppy and retry.
■
A Remote Console session is active.
NOTE: If a Remote Console session is detected, and the operation would cause a reset of
the RILOE board, a warning message is displayed at the Remote Console informing the
user that the operation is going to reset the board and that the Remote Console session
needs to be re-established after 2 minutes.
■
A flash of the RILOE ROM is in progress. The program aborts in this
instance.
Output Logging
The command line option, /log, must be used to capture the output to a file
instead of using the DOS redirection “>” arrow. Using the “>” changes the
DOS environment sufficiently enough to cause problems accessing the 32-bit
memory space.
D-3
D-4
Compaq Remote Insight Lights-Out Edition User Guide
When the output is not redirected to a log file, the output is paginated (screenat-a-time with pause) for ease of viewing. When the output is redirected to a
log file using the /log command line option, only critical (lethal) error
messages will appear on the console and pagination is disabled.
Reset to Factory Defaults
Before configuring specific information to the RILOE board, it is reset to the
factory defaults. Because of this, a single user, “Administrator,” is created
with the default network settings tag password.
Since CPQLODOS 1.0 does not support modifying existing users, and
attempting to add an existing user will cause an error, the user should not
attempt to add “Administrator” in their XML scripting. If you have captured a
configuration file by using the /write_xml command, be sure to delete the
Administrator user from this file before using it to configure a RILOE board.
Minimum Firmware
CPQLODOS is coded to require a minimum firmware level of 2.30 by default.
This can be modified using the command line parameter. CPQLODOS also
requires a SMIF header of at least 2.0 and will not run against old SMIF 1.0
interfaces.
Command Line Parameters
The following sections list the command line parameters available with the
CPQLODOS utility, as well as examples, return messages, and error messages
if applicable.
/help
The /help command displays a simple help message listing available
CPQLODOS commands and return codes. The /? command has the same

/write_xml
The /write_xml command writes the current SMIF settings to a file in XML
format. The following information is written to the file:
■
NIC configuration
■
DHCP configuration
■
User configuration
The name of the file to be written to is specified in the command line
parameter, as shown in the following example:
/write_xml = C:\configsettings
A captured configuration contains all users, including the Administrator. The
passwords will be blank in the file. Prior to reloading the information in this
file to a RILOE board, delete the Administrator user and supply the valid
passwords for the remaining user accounts.
/load_xml
The /load_xml command loads an XML formatted file and applies its changes
to the current configuration. This command is used to modify NIC settings,
DHCP settings, and add users. For more information on creating an XML file
to change configuration settings, see the “Supported XML Syntax” section in
this appendix.
The file name to be used to change settings is specified in the command line
parameter, as shown in the following example:
/load_xml = C:\configsettings
D-9
D-10
Compaq Remote Insight Lights-Out Edition User Guide
Modifying the NIC settings, DHCP settings, and adding users is available only
when specified in the configuration file and loaded in that manner. It is not
available as a separate command line action.
/verify_xml
The /verify_xml command allows you to verify the XML script of a specified
file for accuracy. This command reviews the script and gives a message for
any incorrect script.
For example, in a CPQLODOS script, “Administrator” cannot be one of the
users to be added in a configuration file. If “Administrator” is in the file being
verified, a message will be given stating to remove “Administrator” from the
file.
Example:
/verify_xml = C:\scriptfile
/p
The /p command enables the system to display an error message and pause
before exiting.
/min_fw
The /min_fw command allows you to set the minimum firmware version that
the board will run on.
Example:
/min_fw = 2.30
/reset_riloe
The /reset_riloe command resets the RILOE board, which is recommended
after performing configuration changes. A reset of the RILOE board can also
be achieved by using the RESET_RIB command in an XML script file. For
more information, see the RESET_RIB section of this appendix.
Compaq Lights-Out DOS Utility
/log
The /log command captures all output to a designated log file instead of the
console. The file name to be used as the designated output file is specified in
the command line parameter, as shown in the following example:
Example:
/log = C:\riloelogfile
The /log command must be used to capture the output to a file instead of using
the DOS redirection arrow, “>”. Using the redirection arrow changes the DOS
environment sufficiently enough to cause problems accessing the 32-bit
memory space.
Supported XML Syntax
The CPQLODOS utility is intended as a subset of CPQLOCFG utility.
Therefore, the XML syntax used in the CPQLODOS utility closely parallels
the syntax used to command the CPQLOCFG utility. However, there are a
number of syntax parameters within CPQLOCFG utility that have no meaning
within the CPQLODOS utility and were removed for simplicity.
Administration functionality should be handled through CPQLOCFG utility.
The following sections discuss the commands and parameters that are
supported for CPQLODOS. Review these sections before creating an XML
file to be used by CPQLODOS utility.
CPQLODOS
CPQLODOS is always used at the beginning of a session and is displayed with
the current version. The version should be “1.0.”
D-11
D-12
Compaq Remote Insight Lights-Out Edition User Guide
ADD_USER
The ADD_USER command is used to add a user to the Remote Insight
Lights-Out Edition board. The only parameters that are set through
CPQLODOS are the USER_NAME, USER_LOGIN, and PASSWORD. If any
CPQLOCFG parameter is entered that is not supported by CPQLODOS, it will
cause an error.
NOTE: The RILOE board is reset to factory defaults before configuring specific
information. Because of this, a single user, “Administrator,” is created with the default
network settings tag password. Since CPQLODOS 1.0 does not support modifying existing
users, the user should not attempt to add “Administrator” in their XML scripting. If you
have captured a configuration file by using the /write_xml command, be sure to delete the
Administrator user from this file before using to configure a RILOE board.
Since there are only three parameters within the ADD_USER command, each
user added will have all privileges, including supervisor privileges. Use the
MOD_USER command in CPQLOCFG to change the added user’s privileges.
For more information on using the MOD_USER command, see Appendix C.
Example:
<CPQLODOS VERSION=“1.0”>
<ADD_USER
USER_NAME
USER_LOGIN
PASSWORD
</ADD_USER>
</CPQLODOS>
=“Admin User”
=“username”
=“password”>
ADD_USER Parameters
USER_NAME is the actual name of the user to be added. The USER_NAME
parameter has a maximum length of 48 characters and can be any ASCII string
containing printable characters, including white spaces. This string is used for
display only and may be blank.
USER_LOGIN is the name that the user will type to log into the Remote
Insight Lights-Out Edition board. The USER_LOGIN parameter has a
maximum length of 48 characters, can be an ASCII string containing any
combination of printable characters, and is case sensitive. This parameter must
never be blank.
Compaq Lights-Out DOS Utility
PASSWORD is the password that will be associated with the user. This
parameter has a maximum length of 48 characters and is an ASCII string that
may contain any combination of printable characters. PASSWORD must be at
least eight characters long and cannot contain both single and double quote
characters. The Remote Insight Board treats this string as being case sensitive.
This parameter must never be blank.
ADD_USER Runtime Errors
The possible ADD_USER runtime error messages include:
■
Login name is too long. Maximum length is 48 characters.
■
Password is too short. Minimum length is 8 characters.
■

The MOD_NETWORK_SETTINGS command will modify certain network
settings. All of these elements are optional, and may be left out. If an element
is left out, then the board default is preserved.
Not all parameters are available to modify network settings within the
CPQLODOS utility. Use the MOD_NETWORK_SETTINGS command in
