This document provides basic Oracle ILOM 3.0 information as it pertains to the switch. See Related Documentation for a list of Oracle ILOM 3.0 documents.
Oracle ILOM is a means of remotely managing a hardware device through a SP. For the Sun Datacenter InfiniBand Switch 36, the SP is the Komtron management controller within the switch. Oracle ILOM enables monitoring and controlling of users, hardware, services, protocols, and configuration. You can use Oracle ILOM to perform tasks that could otherwise be accomplished with the hardware commands.
Oracle ILOM has two primary interfaces, a command line and a web interface. The Oracle ILOM web interface enables point-and-click administration of the Oracle ILOM components and services. You access these interfaces using the default ilom-admin or ilom-operator user accounts. The ilom-admin account is for Oracle ILOM system administration. This account is fully privileged to add, delete, create, enable, disable, and so on, the Oracle ILOM targets, components, and services. The ilom-operator account is for users to only monitor the many aspects of Oracle ILOM.
Additionally, the Oracle ILOM implementation supports industry-standard SNMP and IPMI interfaces.
When you upgrade the management controller firmware to version 1.1.3 or higher, Oracle ILOM 3.0 support is installed. An additional benefit of Oracle ILOM is that future management controller and I4 firmware upgrades are greatly simplified.
