The service processor network management port is not operational unless your network employs DHCP, in which case the configuration in automatic. If you network uses DHCP, you can run this command to view your server’s network configuration information:
-> show /SP/network
-> show /SP/network /SP/network Targets: Properties: commitpending = (Cannot show property) dhcp_server_ip = 10.8.31.5 ipaddress = 10.8.31.188 ipdiscovery = dhcp ipgateway = 10.8.31.248 ipnetmask = 255.255.252.0 macaddress = 00:14:4F:7E:83:4F pendingipaddress = 10.8.31.188 pendingipdiscovery = dhcp pendingipgateway = 10.8.31.248 pendingipnetmask = 255.255.252.0 state = enabled Commands: cd set show
If your network does not use DHCP, the network management port is not operational until you configure network settings for the service processor. Configure the service processor in this order:
After the service processor boots, access the ILOM CLI through the serial management port. See Log Into the Service Processor Using the Serial Management Port.
Configure the service processor. See Configure the Service Processor Network Management Port.
Commit the changes to the service processor parameters. See Step 3 in Configure the Service Processor Network Management Port.
You can now use the network management port at any time to access the service processor.
