iLO password reset


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,


A few years ago I installed this HP Microserver Gen8. Yesterday I tried logging in and see if there are any alerts or warnings about any hardware failures and check for the general status.

The problem is that the none of the passwords that I used seems to be working and I suspect that someone might have changed it.


I have 2 questions:


1 - Will resetting the server to factory defaults erase the iLO license? The server has been installed years ago and I can't find any traces of the installed licence. I'd like to avoid losing the installed license

2 - This server has ESXi installed, but not a HO customized image. I heard of an utility that can be executed from within ESXi's cli to reset the password, can I do something like that having in mind that it's not a custom HP image?


Thanks in advance

I reset iLO of my Gen8 MicroServer by the system maintenance switch, and the iLO license was erased.


Not sure if reset iLO with other method will erase it too.
