Set and get BIOS settings using iLO
How can I set/get BIOS settings using iLO connection, I need to automate the configuring of BIOS setting that I do manually. It does not matter what programming/scripting language to use, and also I have a wide variety of machines vendors(IBM, HP, DELL) so let me know how to do that on any of them.
for HP use conrep!
command-line utility for capturing/applying BIOS settings using xml definition files.
capture current settings to xml file
/opt/hp/conrep -s -f <filename>
apply settings from xml input file
/opt/hp/conrep -l -f <filename>
Usage /opt/hp/conrep -s | -l [-f output filename] [-x xml configuration filename] [-?] -s Saves the current configuration to a file. -l Loads configuration setting from a file. -f Name of the output file. -x Name of the XML definition file. Provide the /opt/hp/conrep.xml full path. If not present, the XML configuration will default to conrep.xml If not present, the output filename default to conrep.dat
