This topic shows examples of the ILOM set command being used to configure POST behavior. The examples illustrate only a subset of the ILOM properties that can be used to control POST operations.
Note - When you change individual POST parameter values, the keyswitch_state value must be set to normal.
You put POST in its default mode by setting the virtual keyswitch property to normal. This enables the system to turn on and for POST to run.
-> set /SYS keyswitch_state=normal Set ‘keyswitch_state’ to ‘normal’
You can apply preconfigured diagnostic settings to POST operations by setting the virtual keyswitch property to diag.
-> set /SYS keyswitch_state=diag Set ‘keyswitch_state’ to ‘diag’
You can prevent POST from running by setting the diag_mode property to off.
-> set /SYS diag_mode=off Set ‘diag_mode’ to ‘off’
You force POST to run with a set of preconfigured values for diag_level and diag_verbosity by setting the diag_mode property to service.
-> set /SYS diag_mode=service Set ‘diag_mode’ to ‘service’
