Solution of the iLO error “HTTP SSL_ERROR_BAD_MAC_ALERT”

I noticed the following error when opening the iLO web interface in the browser:

Error establishing secure connection
An error occurred while connecting to 172.16.1.2. The SSL node reported an incorrect message authentication code. Error code: SSL_ERROR_BAD_MAC_ALERT

Updating iLO 3 firmware on HP servers

Once I set up iLO on servers and noticed that when opening an interface in the browser, an SSL error occurs and the iLO web interface does not open.

See how to temporarily solve this error in my article – Solution of the iLO error “HTTP SSL_ERROR_BAD_MAC_ALERT”.

For example, I will use HP ProLiant DL380 G7 with old firmware iLO 3 1.10 (Jul 26 2010)

Updating iLO 4 firmware on HP servers

On the test, I will update iLO4 with firmware 1.13 (Nov 08 2012) on the HP ProLiant DL380p G8 server to the latest version 2.50 (Sep 23 2016) at the time of this writing.
 
And so, download the firmware from the official site http://www.hpe.com/support/iLO4, choosing, for example, the Windows Server operating system, as some do not display the firmware tab “Firmware”.

Solving the problem when upgrading iLO 3 “98% Receiving Image…”

Updated somehow iLO 3 from version 1.10 to 1.88, on the HP ProLiant DL380 G7 server and the process stopped at “98% Receiving Image…

So, if the firmware version of iLO 3 is lower than 1.28, then you must first upgrade to version 1.28, and then higher.

That’s the whole solution to the problem.

Configuring iLO through hponcfg on HP servers

On the test, I installed the hponcfg utility in Ubuntu Server 14.04.4 LTS trusty.

The Ubuntu version can be viewed by the command:

lsb_release -a

Open the file in the text editor:

sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list

And add to its end the official source where the utility is located:

deb http://downloads.linux.hpe.com/SDR/repo/mcp trusty current/non-free

Update the source list and install hponcfg:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install hponcfg

Now we import the current iLO settings into a file:

sudo hponcfg -a -w iloconfig.cfg

Make a copy of the file just in case:

sudo cp iloconfig.cfg iloconfig_new.cfg

And we can edit a new file for our own needs, for example, via the nano editor (Ctrl+X for exit, y/n for saving or canceling changes):

sudo nano iloconfig_new.cfg

For example, to manually specify the IP, we change the following lines:

dhcp_enable value="N">
<ip_address value="192.168.1.150">
<subnet_mask value="255.255.255.0">
<gateway_ip_address value="192.168.1.1">

Then export the file with the new settings back:

sudo hponcfg -f iloconfig_new.cfg -l log.txt

Done, the iLO settings will be changed.

Resetting the iLO password via hponcfg on HP servers

On the test, I change the iLO password to the standard Administrator user on the HP ProLiant DL380 G7 server, the password is generated randomly from the manufacturer and installed in the BIOS, it can also be seen on the pull-out ribbon and attached to the server.

Therefore, in order not to restart the server to change the password, create a file with the name reset_password.xml for example and add content to it:

<RIBCL VERSION="2.0">
<LOGIN USER_LOGIN="Administrator" PASSWORD="password">
<USER_INFO MODE="write">
<MOD_USER USER_LOGIN="Administrator">
<PASSWORD value="password specify here only"/>
</MOD_USER>
</USER_INFO>
</LOGIN>
</RIBCL>

Where Administrator, this is the user name, password – do not touch, there can be any text, but only indicate the desired password to the user in the PASSWORD value.

We export the file:

sudo hponcfg -f reset_password.xml

In case of an error, you can output the report to the log.txt file with the command:

sudo hponcfg -f reset_password.xml -l log.txt

SNMP OID List for iLO4

I made a template for Zabbix today to monitor iLO 4 on the HP DL380p G8 server and had to investigate several OIDs.

You can check the OID from Linux with the command:
snmpwalk 192.168.1.5 -c КОМЬЮНИТИ -v 2c OID

Below is a list and description for OID coolers, processors, temperature sensors, logical drives (RAID), hard disks, network controller iLO, RAM.
