I was experiencing some issues with one of my Dell R610 servers.
(Fans never spin down.) After doing some research I noticed people suggested it was due to bad firmware of i DRAC Express.
You can get the information on the meaning, arguments and samples of any cmdlet usage by running the following command: Let’s write a small script that takes the settings from a CSV file and switches all HP servers on the list on/off.
The CSV file contains IP address of a server, user name and password, necessary power status on the server.
In our example it is the package for Windows Server 2012 R2 –Z7550-10537-x64(479 KB). The module is installed to C:\Program Files\Hewlett-Packard\Power Shell\Modules folder, but the path to this directory is not indicated in the system variable PSModule Path.
Unpack the contents into any folder and start the installation of HP Scripting Tools for Power Shell (HPi LOCmdlets-x64.msi). To make the cmdlets work, you should have Microsoft Management Framework 3.0 (with Power Shell 3.0) or Microsoft Management Framework 4.0 (Power Shell 4.0) installed on your computer. So, by default, Power Shell does not see this module.
To scale updates across many HPE servers, i LO Amplifier Pack is a free, downloadable virtual machine that is capable of rapid updates.
Let’s fix that with the following command: Using these cmdlets, you can get the status and manage a lot of ILO board settings on the HP servers: e.
g., manage power supply, booting order, UID light, obtain information on the HP ILO version, update firmware, etc.
Smart Update Manager (SUM) is an innovative tool for keeping the firmware, drivers, and system software of HPE server infrastructure and associated options up-to-date and secure.
SUM discovers installed hardware and current versions of firmware, drivers, and system software, provides an update recommendation, and then applies the updates in an efficient order to reduce impact on operations.
