I want to send a Non-Maskable Interrupt (NMI) to the system over the HP iLO2/3 cli. Unfortunately I don't know the correct syntax or target:

hpiLO-> nmi

status=2 status_tag=COMMAND PROCESSING FAILED error_tag=COMMAND SYNTAX ERROR You must specify an NMI target.

Maybe you can help me out, thanks in advance!

Type nmi server at the "hpiLO->" prompt to generate an NMI to the system via the CLI.

"server" is the target requested in the error message you posted.

thank you, it works. The help page only displayed '/system1' and '/map1' as targets... – Milde May 8 '12 at 13:30
