Note - If your network allows the use of DHCP, this configuration is performed automatically the first time you boot the system.
Use this procedure only when:
You are unable to use DHCP on your network.
You need to modify the ILOM service processor network management port settings.
In this procedure, you connect to the ILOM service processor using the serial management port to manually reconfigure the network management port.
Note - For more information on configuring ILOM, refer to the Integrated Lights Out Manager 3.0 Supplement for the Sun SPARC Enterprise T5440 Server
Configure these parameters with the set command. The usage is as follows: set target property=value where /SP/network is the target and pendingipaddress=xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx, for example, is the property=value.
Your choices are:
dhcp - Set up the network connection with a dynamically created IP configuration.
static - Set up the network connection with a static IP configuration.
-> set /SP/network pendingipdiscovery=dhcp Set 'pendingipdiscovery' to 'dhcp'
-> set /SP/network pendingipdiscovery=static Set 'pendingipdiscovery' to 'static'
-> set /SP/network pendingipaddress=service-processor-IPaddr Set 'pendingipaddress' to 'service-processor-IPaddr'
-> set /SP/network pendingipgateway=gateway-IPaddr Set 'pendingipgateway' to 'gateway-IPaddr'
-> set /SP/network pendingipnetmask=255.255.255.0 Set 'pendingipnetmask' to '255.255.255.0'
This example uses 255.255.255.0 to set the netmask. Your network environment subnet might require a different netmask. Use a netmask number most appropriate to your environment.
The following example shows parameters that have been set to convert a service processor from a dhcp configuration to a static configuration
-> show /SP/network /SP/network Targets: Properties: commitpending = (Cannot show property) dhcp_server_ip = xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx ipaddress = xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx ipdiscovery = dhcp ipgateway = xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx ipnetmask = 255.255.252.0 macaddress = 00:14:4F:3F:8C:AF pendingipaddress = xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx pendingipdiscovery = static pendingipgateway = xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx pendingipnetmask = 255.255.255.0 state = enabled Commands: cd set show ->
Note - After setting the configuration parameters, you must enter the set /SP/network commitpending=true command for the new values to take affect.
-> set /SP/network commitpending=true Set 'commitpending' to 'true'
Note - You can run the show /SP/network command again (after performing the set /SP/network commitpending=true command) to verify that the parameters have been updated.
