I have noticed that all the HP ProLiant I have access, have the same iLO default username : Administrator.

Is it always the same default username ? Some kind of HP internal rule ...

(I want to do some scripting around this, I would like to confirm that it is a constant)

Default is burned in per server (id is always Administrator, but the password is different).

You can press F8 during POST to enter the ILO configuration screen and reset it there.

  • Is there some physical place on server, where I can find the password?

    There may be a sticker label or a device tag attached to the server with that password and serial number.

Yes. Always Administrator. If you're scripting, be sure to use the hponcfg utility. (don't reinvent the wheel)
