Expect and HP Virtual Connect configuration

Perhaps you are more patient than I am or enjoy the HP web interface for virtual connect.  I can’t stand it .  It makes me wait too long and when I have multiple chassis chained together creating server profiles takes forever.  In fact, I had to create them all then wait.. then find out it was wrong, blow it all away then start over.

So here’s a little expect script that I wrote that does it all for me.  This was done after I created the networks and profiles… but you can probably add that in as well:

after doing that I get all my blades configured without having to wait and type it all out.  I’m hopeful that HP allows ranges or something in the future to be able to assign profiles to more than one blade in the future.
