Powershell : How to Find Server ILO IP addresses on your Network ?
There are two approaches to get the iLo IP’s on your network.
1. Powershell module for HP iLO : Download the powershell module for iLO from the HP site and run the cmdlet Find-Ilo to get the list of Ilo IP addresses in a range of IP addresses. This approach can be bit confusing and personally I don’t find it useful as we have to specify the range of IP address in this cmdlet, which can create a large network traffic.
2. Test-Connection : My approach is very easy and quite useful and will save you some network traffic and time. So the logic behind is – In every organization you can access a machine’s iLO by appending something like “ilo” or “-ilo” etc at the end of server name in the address bar of web browser. These are nothing but DNS entry for the iLO.
Here, we’ll use Test-Connection to ping all “serverName“+ “iLO Keyword” like labdc01-ilo, here
Servername : labdc01
Keyword : -ilo
First, we’ve to get all ServerNames in a text file like and save it to a location lets suppose C:\servers.txt.
Then run the below script after modifying the ‘iLO keyword‘ (highlighted below) used in your organization’s and you will get the Servername s and IP addresses :), easy ain’t it?
Hope you find above Tip useful and please share if you know any other approach.
Happy Learning ! 🙂
