Discover iLO address for server on network

Solution 1:

Look for ports unique to ILO, like 17988: nmap -sT -p 17988 iprange... for example:

nmap -sT -p 17988 --open 192.168.20.0/24

Solution 2:

I used this script in a previous job and it worked very well, finding ilos I didn't know existed.

http://blog.nachotech.com/?p=63

The script depends on tr sed expr curl and nmap

#!/bin/bash
#
# findilos - Search a local network segment for iLOs
#            The iLO is the Integrated Lights-Out management processor
#            used on HP ProLiant and BladeSystem servers
#
scriptversion="1.0"
#
# Author: [email protected]
#
# Website: http://blog.nachotech.com
#
# Requires: tr sed expr curl nmap
#
# Tested with: Nmap 4.20, curl 7.17.1, RHEL4
#
# Note: Discovery of an iLO is dependent upon the Virtual Media port
#       being set to the default of 17988.  If this has been changed
#       by the iLO administrator, then this script will NOT find it.
#
#       Also, if the iLO XML Reply Data Return has been Disabled by
#       the iLO administrator, this script will not be able to
#       gather any information about the server.  It will still be
#       discovered, but all you will see is its IP address.

3 iLOs found on network target 10.28.0.0/16.

For me, this script took 29 seconds to scan a /16, and 11 seconds to scan a /24
