Connecting to the ELOM
This chapter details the ways to connect to and communicate with your Sun Fire server. It contains the following sections:
|Note - You must install your server and configure the ELOM before communicating with the server. Information about installing the server and configuring the ELOM is available in the server installation guide.|
You have two methods to connect to the ELOM in your server:
Both methods require making physical cable connections to the server and logging in to the ELOM; refer to TABLE 2-1.
|Note - The ELOM supports a maximum of 10 active sessions, including serial, SSH, and web browser sessions.|
You access the ELOM CLI by connecting a terminal or a PC running terminal emulation software to the RJ-45 serial port on the server using the supplied cable.
1. Verify that your terminal, laptop, or terminal server is operational.
2. Configure the terminal device or terminal emulation software to use the following settings:
3. Connect a serial cable to the RJ-45 connection on the back of the server.
4. Connect the other end to the terminal or laptop.
5. Press Enter on the terminal device.
This action establishes the connection between the terminal device and the ELOM. When the server has booted, the ELOM displays its login prompt:
The first string in the prompt is the default host name. It consists of the prefix SUNSP and the ELOM’s MAC address. The MAC address for each ELOM is unique.
6. Log in to the CLI.
Accounts created using the web browser are available for the CLI. If this is the first login, you will need to use the preconfigured default account:
User name: root.
Once you have successfully logged in, the default command prompt appears:
You can now run CLI commands (Chapter 7 describes how to use the CLI).
To log out of the CLI
Enter the following command:
Ethernet connectivity provides full access to both the ELOM command-line interface (CLI) and the web GUI. Both connection options allow you to manage, maintain, and configure the server remotely. This section contains the following two connection procedures:
|Note - You will need the IP address of your ELOM, which you obtained during the setup and installation of your server (see the server installation guide).|
Be sure that you have connected a LAN to the NET MGT 0 port on the server, and that you have an SSH client installed on your remote system.
1. If necessary start your SSH client.
2. To log in to the ELOM, enter the following command:
$ ssh username@ipaddress
username The user ID and ipaddress is the IP address of the ELOM. Accounts created using the web browser are available for the CLI. If this is the first login, you will need to use the preconfigured default account. For example,
$ ssh root@ipaddress
3. When prompted, enter the password for the username used in Step 2.
The password for root is changeme.
The CLI command prompt appears:
For information about managing the server using the CLI, see Chapter 7. For information about the default account, see About the Preconfigured Administrator Account.
To Log Out of the CLI:
Enter the following command:
Be sure that you have connected a LAN to the NET MGT 0 port on the server.
1. Type the IP address of the ELOM into your web browser.
The login screen appears.
2. Type a user name and password.
Accounts created using the CLI are available for the web GUI. If this is the first login, you will need to use the preconfigured default account:
For more information about the default account, see About the Preconfigured Administrator Account.
3. Click Log In.
The web GUI appears. Chapter 3 shows how to use the interface.
To Log Out of the web GUI:
Click the Log Out button.
The Log Out button is located in the upper right corner of the screen.
