Using the DNS naming feature
The DNS naming feature enables you to reference the server name assigned to the server without having
to know the server IP address or obtaining the IP address for a given server. This ability to reference the
server name occurs after the server has registered its name with the DNS, using the default naming
sequence assigned by LO100, LO100 - {Server Serial Number} . (For example, LO100 CNQ123456.)
To obtain the serial number, look at the pull-out tab usually located in the front panel of the server.
You can change the server name through the Network Settings page of the LO100 web interface.
To retrieve a server IP address using the DNS naming feature, use a system connected to the same
network, open a DOS command prompt, and then type nslookup {server name}. (For example,
nslookup {CBQ123456}.)
Depending on your DNS server configuration, it might take up to 45 minutes for the DNS to register a
server name. For more DNS options in LO100, see "Configuring network settings using a web browser
(on page 52)".

Updating the firmware
To update the LO100 firmware, use the ROMPaq utility. Downloads for the ROMPaq utility are available
on the HP website (http://www.hp.com/support). For more information about using the ROMPaq utility,
refer to the HP website (http://www.hp.com/servers/manage).
NOTE: LO100 does not support ROMPAQ flashing from a virtual floppy.
After the ROMPaq utility flashes the selected device, cycle power manually to reboot the operating
system.
Remotely updating the firmware
Use the load command to remotely update the LO100 firmware. The firmware file must be an
uncompressed firmware image file created using the DOS ROMPAQ utility found on the Lights-Out 100
Configuration
16
Firmware Upgrade Diskette Utility, which is available for download from the HP website
(http://www.hp.com/servers/lights-out).
To create an uncompressed image file, enter the following command at the DOS prompt:
ROMPAQ /D <infile> <outfile>
where <infile> is the ROMPAQ firmware image file and <outfile> is the file name for the
uncompressed binary image file. For example:
ROMPAQ /D cpqq0801.D14 ldrImage.bin

Input file:
Output file:
CPQQ0801.D14
LDRIMAGE.BIN
The load command is used to retrieve a binary image from a specific source location (specified as
a URL) and place it at the specified target address.
The load command can download and flash an ldr firmware image file using TFTP from the
specified location.
To flash the firmware using TFTP settings:
•
On Windows®:
a. Copy the BMC firmware into a directory on the server.
b. Run TFTP by launching the executable file tftpd32.exe.
c.
Navigate to TFTP configuration>Settings, and set Timeout to 4 seconds and Max Retransmit to
10.
d. Enter the Base Directory and TFTP Server IP Address. Base Directory is the path where the BMC
firmware is residing. TFTP Server IP Address is the IP address of the TFTP server (for example,
10.141.38.157).
•
On Linux:
a. Navigate to Applications>Systems Settings>Server Settings>Services and make sure that TFTP
and xinetd are running.
b. Open the /etc/xinetd.d/tftp file and modify the parameter server_args to include -T
4000000 and -s/<tftp root directory>. For example, server_args = -c -s
/tftpboot -T 4000000.
c.
If a firewall is enabled, disable it or modify the settings to allow the firewall to connect to the
TFTP port. To change the firewall settings, navigate to Applications>System Settings>Security
Level, and enter 69:udp in the parameter of the other port.
To update the firmware, log in to LO100 as the administrator through the CLP interface, and issue the
load command to upload and install the firmware from the map1/firmware directory.
1.
Start a CLP session. To access CLP:
a. Navigate to Start>All Programs>Accessories>Command Prompt.
b. At the command prompt, enter telnet <IP address>.
2.
At the CLP prompt, enter cd map1/firmware.
3.
At the CLP prompt, enter load -source <URI> -oemhpfiletype csr
where:
o
<URI> is the //<tftp server IP>/<path>/<filename> to be downloaded.
Configuration
17
o
<tftp server IP> is the URL or IP address of the TFTP server containing the firmware.
o
<path> is the path of the file relative to the TFTP server root.
o
<filename> is the file name of the image file (in this example, LdrImage.bin).
For example, enter load -source //10.141.38.157/LdrImage.bin -oemhpfiletype
csr.
For Linux CLP load command firmware updates, you must place the image file in the tftpboot
folder, which is located in the TFTP servers root directory.
The TFTP application might report an error in the early part of the firmware upload process, during
the firmware image validation process. An error does not necessarily indicate failure of the firmware
upload and does not prevent successful firmware uploads. A successful firmware upload typically
takes several minutes. After the firmware upgrade process is complete, verify that the new version of
the firmware is active.
If the firmware upgrade process fails after sufficient time (at least 5 minutes), reboot the server, and
verify that the previous version of the firmware is still active. Always reboot the server before retrying
the firmware upgrade process.
After installing the firmware, the IP address of the server might reset to the default value. You must
locally reset the IP address to the desired address.
NOTE: After using the load command LO100 will reset ending your CLP interface session.
You must reconnect to the CLP interface.
NOTE: When you use the CLP load command with TFTPD32, HP recommends using a 4second timeout and 10 retries.

Using LO100
Using SSL
SSL is a protocol used to transmit private documents through the Internet and uses a private key or
certificate to encrypt data transferred over the SSL connection. The Lights-Out 100 provides security for
remote management in distributed IT environments by using an industry-standard encryption protocol for
data traveling on unsecured networks.
SSL is available by installing the Lights-Out 100c Remote Management Card or purchasing the Lights-Out
100i Select Pack or the Lights-Out 100i Advanced Pack. For more information, see "LO100 optional
features (on page 6)."
LO100 comes preinstalled with a certificate. To install a user-specific certificate, see the one-time
"Importing a certificate (on page 56)" setup procedure.
If you cannot access the login page, you must verify the SSL encryption level of your browser is set to 128
bits. The SSL encryption level within the management processor is set to 128 bits and cannot be changed.
The browser and management processor encryption levels must be the same.
To use the preinstalled certificate, enter https://ipaddress in the address line of the browser, which
uses SSL-encrypted communication. Enter http://ipaddress to use non-SSL encrypted communication.
Using SSH
SSH is a telnet-like program for logging in to and executing commands on a remote machine, which
includes security with authentication, encryption, and data integrity features. The Lights-Out 100 remote
management processor can support simultaneous access from two SSH clients. After SSH is connected
and authenticated, the command line interface is available. LO100 supports two simultaneous SSH
connections.
SSH is available by installing the Lights-Out 100c Remote Management Card or purchasing the Lights-Out
100i Select Pack or the Lights-Out 100i Advanced Pack. For more information, see "LO100 optional
features (on page 6)."
LO100 supports the SSH version 2 and the following client utilities:
•
PuTTY 0.54 or later.
•
OpenSSH
LO100 comes preinstalled with a certificate. To install a user-specific certificate, see the one-time
"Importing a certificate (on page 56)" setup procedure.
Using the SSH utility
When using a SSH utility to connect to a server for the first time, the utility prompts you to accept the
server public key, sometimes referred to as a host key. Accepting this key authorizes the utility to store a
copy of the public key in its own database. The utility recognizes the server when future connections are
attempted by comparing the public key to the one stored in its database.
Using LO100 19
NOTE: Logging in to an SSH session could take up to 90 seconds. Depending on the client
used, you might not see on-screen activity during this time.
To access the remote management processor using SSH:
1.
Open an SSH window.
2.
When prompted, enter the IP address, login name, and password.
Using the PuTTY utility
PuTTY 0.54 is a terminal emulation product that includes support for telnet and the SSH protocol. PuTTY
0.54 is available for download from the Internet.
•
To start a PuTTY session, double-click the PuTTY icon in the directory in which PuTTY is installed.
•
To start a PuTTY session from the command line:
o
To start a connection to a server called host, enter:
putty.exe [-ssh | -telnet | -rlogin | -raw] [user@]host
o
For telnet sessions, you can also enter the following alternative syntax:
putty.exe telnet://host[:port]/
o
To start an existing saved session called session name, enter:
putty.exe -load "session name"
When you press Enter using PuTTY versions earlier than 0.54, two line feeds might appear on a single
line feed. To avoid this issue and for best results, HP recommends using version 0.54 or later.
Using the OpenSSH utility
OpenSSH is a free version of the SSH protocol available for download on the Internet.
To start an OpenSSH client in Linux, at the command prompt enter:
ssh -l loginname ipaddress/dns name
Using CLP
HP has worked with key industry partners within Distributed Management Task Force, Inc. to define an
industry-standard set of commands. The SMASH suite will standardize manageability interfaces for
servers. The Lights-Out 100 remote management processor implements the command set defined in the
Server Management Command Line Protocol Specification, 1.00 Draft. The CLP replaces the simple CLI
that was released previously and is no longer supported.
The management processor functionality accessible from the SMASH CLP is a low-bandwidth interface
and provides similar functionality to the web interface. The CLP is designed for users who prefer a
nongraphical interface. The CLP is accessible through the following methods:
•
Telnet
•
SSH connection
•
Physical serial port
Using LO100 20
LO100 CLP supports two simultaneous SSH connections, two SSH connections and one telnet connection,
or one SSH connection and two telnet connections. You cannot have more than two simultaneous SSH
connections and up to three (telnet and SSH) connections at a time.
CLP syntax
The general syntax of CLP command is:
<verb> <target> <option> <property>
•
Verbs—The following verbs are supported:
o
o
o
o
o
o
o
o
o
o
cd
help
load
reset
set
show
start
stop
exit
version
•
Target—The default target is the /. The target can be changed by the cd command or by specifying
a target on the command line.
•
Options—The following options are valid:
o
o
-help/-h
-all/-a
•
Properties are the attributes of the target that can be modified.
•
Output—The output syntax is text.
The valid Boolean values for any command are true and false.
General notes
If the commands on the CLP command span more than one line, you cannot navigate between different
lines.
Operating system-specific notes
•
The Microsoft® Windows® 2000 telnet client does not support the Functions keys F1 through F12,
Insert, Home, and End keys. These keys will not work in a Lights-Out 100 command line session.
•
The Backspace key in the Lights-Out 100 CLP implementation is mapped to the value 0x8. Some
client operating systems, Novell Linux Desktop and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 Desktop, map the
Backspace key to the value 0x7f, which is used for the Delete key in the Windows® telnet client.
The Backspace key will not work from a client from which it has value of 0x7f. For the Linux clients,
using the Home or the End key enables the Lights-Out 100 CLP service to remap the Backspace key
to use the value 0x7f, making the key functional.
In the Windows® PuTTY client, the Backspace key can be mapped to a value of 0x8 by changing the
setting for Terminal Keyboard to Control-H.
Using LO100 21
Base commands
•
The help command displays context-sensitive help.
Entering help displays all the supported commands. Entering <command help/?> displays the
help message specific to that command.
o
Help for verbs
Calling help for a verb returns the general syntax and usage associated with issuing that verb.
Calling help for a verb that is not present in the current directory returns an Unsupported
Command message. The following examples are all valid ways to call help for a verb.
— /./-> help show
Usage: show [<target>][<options>][<properties>]
— /./-> show -h
Usage: show [<target>][<options>][<properties>]
— /./-> show -help
Usage: show [<target>][<options>][<properties>]
— /./->
o
Help for targets
Calling help for a target returns any information about the target and what it contains. You can
call help for any target that is not contained in the current directory (help map1 can be called
from system1).
— /./-> system1 -h
Invalid command
— /./-> system1 -help

•
The exit command terminates the CLP session.
•
The cd command sets the current default target. The context works similar to a directory path. The
root context for the server and the starting point for a CLP system is /. (forward slash period). By
changing the context, you can shorten commands.
For example:
•
o
The cd command changes the directory.
o
The cd .. command moves up the tree one directory.
o
The cd myfolder command moves to the myfolder folder if myfolder is in the current
directory.
The show command displays values of a property or contents of a collection target. For example:
/./> show
/.
Targets
system1
map1
Properties
Verbs
Using LO100 23
cd
version
exit

help
The first line of information returned by the show command is the current context. In the example, /.
is the current context. Following the context is a list of subtargets (Targets) and properties (Properties)
applicable to the current context. The verbs section (Verbs) shows which commands are available in
this context.
The show command can also be specified with an explicit or implicit context and a specific
property. An explicit context is /map1/firmware and is not dependent on the current context. An
implicit context assumes that the context specified is a child of the current context. If the current
context is /map1, then a show firmware command displays the /map1/firmware data. If a
property is not specified, then all properties are shown.
•
The load command moves a binary image from a URL to the map. The load command is used to
take a binary image from a specific source location (specified as a URL) and place it at the specified
target address. In a remote management processor implementation, the firmware downloads a full
image file using TFTP from the specified location and programs flash with the image.
In a remote management processor implementation, /map1/firmware is a valid target.
The load command supports usage only with the following options.
o
-source <location>—This option must be specified.
o
(h)elp—This option appears on the command line. The command ignores all options and
properties except -output (for terse or verbose output). These options are only valid for this
command when the -help option is used.
o
source <value>—This option specifies the target from which to transfer the binary image. The
value specified must be a valid URL. The format is //tftpserverip/path/filename. This
option is required in the command line when the load command is executed unless -help is
used. The file must be an uncompressed firmware image file that you create using the DOS
ROMPAQ utility found on the Lights-Out 100 Firmware Upgrade Diskette Utility available for
download from the HP website (http://www.hp.com/servers/lights-out).
To create the uncompressed image file, enter the following command from DOS:
ROMPAQ /D <infile> <outfile>
where <infile> is the ROMPAQ firmware image file, and <outfile> is the filename for the
uncompressed binary image file.
o
Specify one of the following:
— "-oemhpfiletype csr" for loading firmware
— "-oemhpfiletype key" for loading a key
— "-oemhpfiletype cer" for loading a certificate
The load command returns any status data on the first lines. After the status data appears, one of
the following lines of text appears on the next line:
— <URL> transferred to <target address> (if the file is transferred)
— <URL> not transferred (if the file is not transferred)
Example:
Using LO100 24
load -source //192.168.2.1/pub/firmwareimage.bin -oemhpfiletype csr
//192.168.2.1/pub/firmwareimage.bin transferred to
/map1/firmware/firmwareimage
•
The reset command causes a target to cycle from enabled to disabled and then to enabled again.
•
The set command assigns a specific value to a property or group of properties. The standard
syntax for the set command is set property=new value.
The set command is used to change any changeable property. If the current directory does not
contain the property you want to change, you must specify the target of the property before entering
the property you want to change.
•
The start command causes the system1 target to power on.
•
The stop command causes the system1 target to power off.
•
The version command queries the version of the CLP implementation or other CLP elements. For
example:
/./map1/-> version
Version 1.00
/./map1/-> cd firmware
/./map1/firmware/-> version
Version 1.00
/./map1/firmware/-> show
/./map1/firmware

The -force option can also be used with the stop command. This option forces the
implementation to stop the target, ignoring any policy that might cause the implementation to
normally not execute the command. In remote management processor implementation, this process is
equivalent to a hard power down.
5.
To reset the server, enter reset /system1. For example:
/./system1/> reset
System1 reset.

Platform event filtering configuration
The PEF Configuration screen enables you to configure LO100 to take selected actions on received or
internally generated event messages. These actions include powering down the system, resetting the
system, and triggering the generation of an alert.
To enable PEF functionality you must issue the following commands in the CLP:
cd map1
oemhp i 20 10 D0 18 00 12 01 03 D2
oemhp i 20 10 D0 18 00 12 02 3F 95
To configure a PEF for a particular sensor, click the PEF button to the far right of that sensor on the
Monitoring Sensors screen. The PEF button adjacent to each sensor opens a PEF Configuration page for
that sensor.
The PEF Configuration screen contains two sections: Current PEF Entries and Add PEF Entry. The Current
PEF Entries section includes Sensor Type, Sensor Name, PEF Action, and PEF Control information. The
Add PEF Entry section enables you set an action.
Initially, no entries appear in the Current PEF Entries section because no PEFs are defined. When PEF
entries are defined, the PEF Control field becomes active. Then, you can set the individual entries to
enabled, disabled, or deleted.
To configure an action (PEF entry), select the desired Event Offsets, select the desired PEF Action settings,
and then click Add.

Using Virtual KVM
The Virtual KVM feature of LO100 is a remote graphic console that turns a supported browser into a
virtual desktop and provides full control over the display, keyboard, and mouse of the host server. The
operating system-independent console supports graphic modes that display remote host server activities,
including shutdown and startup operations.
Virtual KVM is an advanced feature available by installing the Lights-Out 100c Remote Management
Card or purchasing the Lights-Out 100i Select Pack or the Lights-Out 100i Advanced Pack. For more
information, see the section, "LO100 optional features (on page 6)."
NOTE: This functionality is only available on systems using a dedicated LO100 NIC.
When connecting to the Virtual KVM applet for the first time, the applet reports an error. To clear the
error and connect to the Virtual KVM applet, close your browser session, and then reconnect to the Virtual
KVM applet.
The Virtual KVM applet is not compatible with standard VNC clients and does not implement standard
VNC protocols. You must use the supplied Java™ applet to connect to the server. The Virtual KVM applet
cannot pass the F10 key sequence to the target system. To work around this issue, use the virtual
keyboard on the remote server to transmit the F10 key.
If shared NIC mode is enabled through the BIOS Setup Utility, the KVMS option (link) does not appear or
function on HP ProLiant ML110 servers. If the HP Lights-Out 100c Remote Management Card is installed,
you must use the dedicated NIC port on the HP Lights-Out 100c Remote Management Card.
The remote graphic console requires JVM version 1.4.2 or later on the client system. To download the
recommended JVM for your system configuration, refer to the HP website
(http://www.hp.com/servers/manage/jvm).

Configuring network settings using a web browser
The Network Settings screen displays IP address, subnet mask, and other TCP/IP-related settings. From the
Network Settings screen, you can enable or disable DHCP and configure a static IP address for servers
not using DHCP. You can view and modify the network settings when logged in as either OEM or
administrator (admin).
To modify the network settings, from the browser main menu navigation bar, click Network Settings, enter
the new settings, and then click Apply.
The Network Settings page now lists the following information:
•
MAC AddressDisplays the MAC address.
•
IP AddressDisplays the current BMC IP address and enables you to set it to Static.
•
Subnet MaskDisplays the LO100 IP network subnet mask. If you are using DHCP, the subnet mask
is automatically supplied. If not, enter the network subnet mask.
•
GatewayDisplays the IP address of the network gateway. If you are using DHCP, the network
gateway IP address is automatically supplied. If not, enter the network gateway address.
For the static IP to work, all network settings must be correct.
•
DHCPEnables you to set the BMC IP to DHCP by selecting the Enabled box, or to Static by
clearing the Enabled box. For the changes to take effect, click Apply.
When setting the BMC IP to Static, to set a valid static IP, you must enter a static IP into the IP
Address field before clicking Apply.
•
DNS Server IP AddressDisplays IP address of the DNS server.
•
DNS Server Alternate IP AddressDisplays secondary DNS IP address.
•
DNS Host NameDisplays the host name set by user, defaulted to lo100<serial number>. This
name is the DNS name associated with the IP address. If DHCP and DNS are configured correctly,
this name can be used to connect to the LO100 subsystem instead of the IP address.
Using LO100 52
•
DNS Current Domain NameDisplays the current name of the domain where the LO100 subsystem
resides. DHCP assigns this name. This name would be what is currently registered, whether it was
returned through option 6, or it was configured locally as al default.
•
DNS Configured Domain NameDisplays the domain name set by user as default domain name.
•
Register this Connection's Addresses in DNSEnables you to register these server addresses to the
DNS Server on the network. DHCP option 81 is used to register the host name with the appropriate
DNS suffix to the DNS server through the DHCP server.
•
Use this connection's DNS suffix in the DNS RegistrationEnables you to register the DNS suffix
with the DNS server. Enables you to set and use a default domain name if the DHCP server does not
offer one through DHCP Option 6.
Disabling this option can result in the connection using its primary DNS suffix, which is usually the
DNS name of the active directory domain to which it is joined.
•
Telnet Inactivity TimeoutEnables you to set the total time limit allowed of inactivity (in seconds)
during a telnet connection before the connection is terminated.
To disable Telnet Inactivity timeout, set the field to 0.
If you are using Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008, from the Windows Features On/Off
option of the Programs and Features menu in the Control Panel, you must activate Telnet Server and
Telnet CIient.
LO100 enables you to register this connection's address in DNS, and to use this connection's DNS
registration. You can use this DNS registration feature only if you have enabled DHCP.
DNS registration does not work on G5 systems with low-speed NIC ports.

Importing a certificate
If you do not want to use the preinstalled public key (certificate), create and install your own private key
(certificate). Importing a key or certificate is a one-time procedure that supports both SSH and SSL. The
key must be generated using external third-party software, placed on a TFTP server, and uploaded to the
LO100. For Microsoft® Windows®, if you do not have a TFTP software package, use TFTPD32.EXE,
which is available on the Internet. Linux generally has a TFTP server installed with the operating system. If
it is not, see your Linux documentation for more information.
NOTE: When you use the CLP load command with TFTPD32, HP recommends using a 4second timeout and 10 retries.
NOTE: When using the CLP load command in Linux set the timeout to 4000000. The
firewall built into some Linux systems might not allow the TFTP server to send and receive
information. You might have to disable the firewall to allow these connections. If you are
experiencing firewall issues, change the firewall settings to allow connections on port 69 (the
default port for TFTP servers). See your firewall documentation for additional information.
Creating a certificate
LO100 requires a 1,024-bit DSA key stored in PEM (Base64-encoded) format to be located on a TFTP
server. For example, the following process uses Win32 OpenSSL, downloaded from the Shining Light
Using LO100 56
Productions website (http://www.slproweb.com/products/Win32OpenSSL.html), and the commands
issued in a DOS window to generate the certificate. To generate a certificate using Win32 OpenSSL:
1.
Download Win32 OpenSSL.
2.
Install and set up OpenSSL.
3.
Using OpenSSL, generate a DSA parameters file:
openssl dsaparam -out server_dsaparam.pem 1024
4.
Generate the DSA private key file, called server_privkey.pem:
openssl gendsa -out server_privkey.pem server_dsaparam.pem
5.
Generate the DSA certificate (public key) file, called server cacert.pem:
openssl req -new -x509 -key server_privkey.pem -out server_cacert.pem days 1095
6.
When prompted for a distinguished name, enter an appropriate domain name for the servers that
will be receiving the certificate.
7.
After creating the certificate, copy it to a TFTP server that is accessible on the same network as
LO100.
Before importing a certificate or key, you must disconnect from any remote KVMS sessions. Importing a
key or certificate will disconnect your session and reset the LO100 processor. After importing a key or
certificate and LO100 confirms a successful upload, you must log back into LO100.
Installing a certificate or private key through a web browser

Resolving character and line feed issues
HP recommends using similar operating systems to communicate between the CMS and your applications
or workstations. For example, if you are running a Linux CMS, run Linux on your workstations, and use a
Using LO100 59
Linux telnet client. Likewise, if you are running a Windows® CMS, run Windows on your workstations,
and use a Windows® Telnet client.
If you run multiple operating systems in your environment, an application limitation issue might occur. For
example, running Linux on your servers and using a Windows® Telnet client or PuTTY might cause an end
of line character issue. If you experience issues, do one the following:
•
For a Windows® Telnet client to Linux console redirection configuration, make sure Windows®
Telnet sends a CR for the line feed. To set CR, use the following command for Windows® Telnet:
unset crlf
•
For applications such as PuTTY with Linux redirection:
a. Click Connection>Telnet.
b. Clear Return key sends Telnet New Line instead of ^M.
LO100 has a default of 0x08 (input) and 0x03 (output) filter setting that must not be changed. If the
default settings are changed, functionality issues might occur and you must restore the default settings.
After the defaults are reset, you must log out and back in to the shell to restore normal functionality. To
restore the default settings, use the following IPMI commands for your environment and operating system:
•
To set telnet inbound to 0x08:
o
