Supersedes c03743622 (Revision 1).

The HP Integrated Lights-Out 3 (iLO 3) and HP Integrated Lights-Out 4 (HP iLO 4) may have a self-signed Secure Socket Layer (SSL) certificate containing the incorrect year for the expiration date as follows:

This may occur if iLO generates a new SSL self-signed certificate after January 18th, 2013 (1/18/2013).

NOTE: iLO generates a new self-signed SSL certificate when iLO is reset to factory defaults or when the iLO hostname is changed.

SCOPE

Any HP ProLiant server with iLO 3 Firmware Version 1.55 (or earlier) or iLO 4 Firmware Version 1.20 (or earlier) after iLO is reset to factory defaults or when the iLO hostname is changed.

RESOLUTION

Import a Trusted SSL Certificate signed by a Certification Authority (CA) into iLO 3 and iLO 4. Refer to the iLO User Guide for more details.

The HP iLO 4 User Guide is located at the following URL: https://support.hpe.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=emr_na-c03334051 The HP iLO 3 User Guide is located at the following URL: https://support.hpe.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=emr_na-c02774507

If a Certification Authority is not available, perform either of the following steps as a workaround:

Downgrade the iLO firmware

  1. Downgrade the iLO 3 firmware to Version 1.50 or the iLO 4 firmware to Version 1.13.
  2. Boot the server and press F9 to enter the ROM-Based Setup Utility (RBSU).
  3. In the RBSU Date and Time Menu, set the system date to 01-01-2013.
  4. Save changes and exit the RBSU.
  5. Wait until the server completes the Power-On Self-Test (POST).
  6. Log into iLO, verify the iLO date is January 1, 2013, and force iLO to generate a new self-signed SSL certificate by either changing the iLO hostname or restoring iLO to factory defaults.
  7. After iLO has a new self-signed SSL certificate containing a valid expiration date, the iLO 3 firmware can be upgraded to Version 1.55 and the iLO 4 firmware can be upgraded to Version 1.20.

OR

iLO 4 firmware version 2.55 (or later)

The iLO 4 self-signed certificate can also be regenerated using a REST command that was added in iLO 4 firmware 2.55 (or later). To regenerate the self-signed certificate using this REST command use the following syntax:

DELETE https://{iLO}/redfish/v1/Managers/{item}/SecurityService/HttpsCert/

Below is an example using curl.

curl -X DELETE https://ilo.example.net/redfish/v1/Managers/1/SecurityService/HttpsCert/

The expiration date on the self-signed SSL certificate is targeted to be resolved in a future version of the iLO 3 and iLO 4 firmware.
