HP ILO 100 KVM Invalid username/password Error

Symptom

You have an HP DL Series server such as DL150. You did purchase and installed the KVM license key, it did work for some time but now whenever you connect you get

"Invalid username/password. You have been disconnected"

Cause


Something has gone wild in the ILO Flash memory.


Fix

ssh as an admin into the ILO interface. For most cases you should use putty program which is free and downloadable.

Then type in the following commands:

show map1 license
(just to play it safe and copy and paste this into a suitable text file on your computer)
reset map1 license

Session will then hang.

Log back into the web utility and the KVM feature should now work.
