Configuring the Network Management Port

If your server uses Sun system firmware 6.2 or subsequent compatible versions, do not perform the following configuration. Your ALOM CMT system controller network management port is preconfigured at the factory.

If your server uses an earlier version of firmware than Sun system firmware 6.2, you must configure the network management port before you can use it.

This appendix includes the following topic:

Configuring the System Controller Network Manager Port

procedure icon  To Configure the System Controller Network Management Port

To access the system controller using the network for the first time, you must first configure the SC network management port through the SC serial management port.

You set these network parameters according to the specific details of your network configuration:

Note - For more information on configuring ALOM CMT, refer to the Advanced Lights Out Management (ALOM) CMT Guide.

To configure these parameters you must use the setsc command. The usage is:

sc> setsc parameter

1. Set the netmask for the system controller.

sc> setsc netsc_ipnetmask

This example uses to set the netmask. Your network environment subnet might require a different netmask. Use a netmask number most appropriate to your environment.

2. Set the IP address for the system controller.

sc> setsc netsc_ipaddr service-processor-IPaddr

3. Set the IP address for the system controller gateway.

sc> setsc netsc_ipgateway gateway-IPaddr

4. Set the if_network parameter to true.

sc> setsc if_network true

5. Use the showsc command to verify that the parameters were set correctly.

The showsc command displays all the configuration parameters and their values, as shown in the example below.

Note - The network addresses and parameters shown in the examples are for illustration purposes only. The four parameters marked with asterisks must be set according to the specific details of your network configuration for the network management port to function properly.
