What Does ILOM Do?

ILOM enables you to actively manage and monitor the server independently of the operating system state, providing you with a reliable Lights Out Management (LOM) system. With ILOM, you can proactively:

The ILOM service processor (SP) runs its own embedded operating system and has a dedicated Ethernet port, which together provide out-of-band management capability. In addition, you can access ILOM from the server's host operating system that Sun supports (Oracle Solaris, Linux, and Windows). Using ILOM, you can remotely manage your server as if you were using a locally attached keyboard, monitor, and mouse.

ILOM automatically initializes as soon as power is applied to your server. It provides a full-featured, browser-based web interface and has an equivalent command-line interface (CLI). There is also an industry-standard SNMP interface and IPMI interface.
