|Oracle Integrated Lights Out Manager (ILOM) 3.0 Supplement for the Sun Fire X2270 M2 Server|
ILOM is a server system management feature that is preinstalled on most Oracle x86-based servers. ILOM consists of a hardware and software component. The service processor (SP) is the server system management hardware component. The SP runs its own embedded operating system (OS) and functions independently of the server OS. The SP boots when power is applied to the server (standby power mode), offering full functionality in a low-power or lights-out state. The SP continues to provide full functionality after the server OS boots and when the server is in full power mode.
The server system management software component is the ILOM application that resides on the SP as preinstalled firmware. ILOM enables you to actively manage the server system and its components. Management capabilities are provided through a full-featured, browser-based web interface and an equivalent command-line interface (CLI). Industry–standard SNMP and IPMI interfaces are also available.
You can access ILOM from the server's host operating system, and you can remotely manage your server as if you were using a locally attached keyboard, monitor, and mouse. However, the ILOM SP also has a dedicated Ethernet port, which provides an out-of-band management capability.
