Log in to the N1 System Manager browser interface.
Select an existing logical server group, or create and then select a new logical server group.
For group creation procedures, see To Create a Group of Managed Servers in Sun N1 System Manager 1.3 Discovery and Administration Guide.
Use SP-based discovery, specifying the range of Sun Blade X8400 Server Module SP IP addresses.
Use the discover command to discover a Sun Blade X8400 Server Module through its SP.
N1-ok> discover IP,IP-IP,subnet/mask format ip [group group] [ipmi username/password] [ssh username/password]
IP addresses, IP address ranges, and IP subnets can be input as a comma-separated list. Overlapping IP address ranges are allowed.
When you specify the range of IP addresses for discovery, ensure that the IP address range does not include the IP addresses of the N1 System Manager management server.
Security credentials for IPMI, Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), SSH and Telnet are optional. If credentials are not specified, the manufacturer defaults are used. See Sun N1 System Manager 1.3 Site Preparation Guide for information about the default accounts.
See discover in Sun N1 System Manager 1.3 Command Line Reference Manual for more details about the syntax used in the discover command.
After successful completion of the Discovery job, a managed server is identified by its management name. If the Sun Blade X8400 Server Module was discovered using SP-based discovery, its management name is initially set to its management IP address. You can rename discovered servers at any time, to a name of your choosing, by using the set server command as described in set server in Sun N1 System Manager 1.3 Command Line Reference Manual. When you name a Sun Blade X8400 Server Module using the set server command, the name does not change if you move the Sun Blade X8400 Server Module to another chassis.
For more information, see SP-Based Discovery in Sun N1 System Manager 1.3 Discovery and Administration Guide
After discovery, each discovered Sun Blade X8400 Server Module is placed into the selected logical server group and into a chassis server group. You can add discovered Sun Blade X8400 Server Modules to more than one logical server group, for various group level tasks, providing additional management functionality.
