September 21, 2017 – Script for iDRAC root password change

Posted in Perl tagged , , , at 12:22 pm by alessiodini

The customer I’m working for in these days, asked me to reset a hunderd of iDRAC consoles root password because they were still using the default root/calvin credentials.

Having fun for this request, I wrote a perl script using Net::OpenSSH module. This script checks for root account index, and it changes the password using this index. If something does not work as expected, the script will let u know on which host it faced the issue.

It’s very easy to use, for example:

$ perl

Connection to host
Reset password succesfully executed on – index 2

That’s all!
You can download the script here.

Have fun 😀
