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
