Having problems finding a scripting tool that provides a management orchestration among the server components? Being challenged with many tools, remote management vulnerabilities and scripting limitation? Hewlett Packard Enterprise offers you a single command line interface for the iLO 4 RESTful API called RESTful Interface Tool designed for HPE ProLiant Gen9 Servers. The RESTful Interface Tool lets you configure, inventory and monitor various server components, plus document allowed server configurations and dependencies via HPE Integrated Lights-Out (iLO) 4 FW 2.0 or greater. RESTful Interface Tool offers support for UEFI BIOS and iLO 4 configurations.

What's new

  • WinPE 4.0 & 5.0 support
  • Multi-deployment for up to ten servers
  • Firmware update for iLO and Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) from the Command Line Interface (CLI)

Features

Delivers a Single Command Tool to Simplify BIOS Boot Mode (Legacy/UEFI) and iLO 4 Configurations

The RESTful Interface Tool leverages iLO 4 RESTful API and provides server inventory, monitoring and configuration to control power, BIOS and iLO 4 settings, fetch event logs and more.

Delivers remote authentication while scripting to increase server deployment security following https protocol.

Provides commands to simplify manageability of Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) and iLO 4 such as Boot order command that includes attributes for: 1) Boot order, 2) One time boot, and 3) Continuous boot, 4) iLO Reset, 5) RAW commands for advance user.

Filter is a new optional parameter for selecting objects based on values of properties of an object. This is helpful for object types that have multiple instances like PCI devices.

Script on your UEFI iSCSI configuration and Automate Firmware update for UEFI and iLO 4.

Reduce Deployment Time with any of the Three Modes of Scripting

The RESTful Interface Tool offers an Interactive Mode that helps you get familiar with the tool using the autocomplete functionality.

The Scriptable Mode lets you script all the commands with the use of an external input file. The script contains a list of command lines that enable you to get and set properties of server objects.

File-based mode is similar to the conrep.dat files used by CONREP. File-based mode supports JSON file formats.

Reduce provision time by deploying in up to ten servers at a time.
