Introduction
HPONCFG utility
The HPONFCG utility only supports HP ProLiant 300/500/700/900 Server series, 100 Series
Gen8 servers, and HP ProLiant BL Servers that are listed in the vSphere Server Support Matrix. To
visit the vSphere Server Matrix page, go to www.hp.com/go/vmware and select Certified ProLiants
under Tools/Resource section.
HP offers support for the iLO 2, iLO 3 and iLO 4 features available on ProLiant servers with the
HPONCFG utility.
HPONCFG is an online configuration tool used to set up and reconfigure iLO 2, iLO3 and iLO 4
without requiring a reboot of the server operating system. The utility runs in a command-line mode
and must be executed from an operating system command-line.
Observe the following requirements before using HPONCFG:
•
The iLO 2, iLO 3 or iLO 4 Management Interface Driver must be loaded on the server. HPONCFG
displays a warning if the driver is not installed.
•
HPONCFG requires minimum iLO 2, iLO 3 and iLO 4 firmware versions. To determine the
minimum firmware version required, see the HP SmartStart Scripting Toolkit Linux and Windows
Editions Support Matrix.
For more information, see the Remote Management website:http://www.hp.com/servers/lights-out
HPONCFG command-line syntax
Use the following format at the command line:
hponcfg -f filename [-l filename] [-v] [-m minFw] -g [-m minFw] -w
filename [-m minFw] -r [-m minFw ] -h -?
The HPONCFG utility can be accessed from the location: /opt/hp/tools.
IMPORTANT: Because the-w argument does not capture certain types of information, such as
the administrator password, data files created with HPONCFG using the-w argument cannot then
be used as input files for HPONCFG, unless they are modified first.
Table 1 hponcfg Command Line Arguments
Argument
Function
-a, --all
This argument captures complete Management Processor configuration to the
file. This option should be used along with the "-w" option.
-i --input

input received through the standard input stream.
-s,--substitute
This argument substitutes variables present in the input configuration file with
the values specified in "namevaluepairs".
-f, - -file=filename
This argument sets the iLO 2, iLO 3 or iLO 4 configuration based on the
information in the XML input file named filename.
-l, - -log=filename
This argument logs replies to the text log file named filename.
-v, - -xmlverbose
Writes all the responses from iLO 2, iLO 3 or iLO 4.

contentType=SupportManual&prodTypeId=18964&prodSeriesId=468780&docIndexId=64179.
HPSSACLI command-line syntax
Using VMware esxcli requires knowledge about the CLI usage. The VMware vSphere command
line documentation is available at: http://www.vmware.com/support/developer/vcli/.
The following is an overview of the ESXCLI command-line format:
# esxcli {namespace} {object} {command} {cmd options} “command-string”
Table 7 HPSSACLI Command-Line Arguments
Argument
Function
esxcli
The esxcli application.
namespace
Each plugin must have an associated namespace which defines any environment or other system
variables required by the application.
object
A plugin must have one or more associated objects which defines a single operation.
command
Prepares the esxcli target to accept a command-line string.
cmd options
Additional switches associated with the command itself (if necessary).
“command-string” This is the string which dictates the operation that should be executed by the target application itself.
The current namespace and command names are: hpssacli and cmd respectively. The {cmd
options} parameter can be cmdopts or -q. There is no need for an {object} type for
hpssacli since the application operates on internal commands supplied in the command-string.
HPSSACLI ESXCLI syntax
The HPSSACLI utility is supported by the ESXCLI utility.
Use the following command syntax for all commands:
# esxcli –server=”servername or IP” –user=”username” –password=”root
password” hpssacli cmd -q “command-string”
The command-string parameter supports same commands that are specified at the HPSSACLI
interactive command-line interface.
Example 1 This example shows the information about all the SmartArray controller on the server.
esxcli –server=”servername or IP” –user=”username” –password=”root
password” hpssacli cmd -q “controller all show status ”
The following output is displayed:
Smart Array P212 in Slot 9
Controller Status: OK
Smart Array P410i in Slot 0 (Embedded)
Controller Status: OK
Cache Status: OK

HP CONREP utility
The conrep utility reads the state of the system environment settings to determine an HP Proliant
server configuration and writes the results to an XML data file. You can edit this file and use it to
reset the system configuration on the same server or to duplicate the hardware configuration on
another HP ProLiant server.
The utility uses the XML file called hardware definition file to determine what information to retrieve
from and restore to the server. You can make a copy of this file and edit the copy to update new
features or restrict features when capturing server configurations. The default conrep.xml file contains
common hardware configuration settings for the supported HP ProLiant series servers. You can
change the default using –x file option.
CAUTION: Improper modification of the conrep.xml file can result in the loss of critical data.
Only experienced users should attempt to modify the file.
The server configuration information is captured in the default conrep.dat data file. This file is an
XML data file which contains the actual system configuration retrieved from the ROM-Based Setup
Utility (RBSU). You can edit this data file to restore the settings or use –f file option to change the
default.
CAUTION: Improper modification of the conrep.dat file can result in the loss of critical data.
Only experienced users should attempt to modify the data files. Because of the potential risk of
data loss, take all necessary precautions to ensure that mission-critical systems remain online if a
failure occurs.
The utility runs in a command-line mode and must be executed from an operating system
command-line and can be accessed from the location: /opt/hp/tools. You can also find the
default conrep.xml file here.
The conrep utility only supports HP ProLiant 300/400/500/700/800/900 and Blade servers. In
addition, all of Proliant 100 series Gen8, Gen9 that are listed in the vSphere Server Support Matrix
are supported. To visit the vSphere Server Matrix page, go to www.hp.com/go/vmwareand select
Certified ProLiant’s under Tools/Resource section.
