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 Supplement for Sun SPARC Enterprise T5140 and T5240 Servers.
Set these network parameters according to the specific details of your network configuration:
/SP/network state – Specifies whether the service processor is on the network or not
/SP/network pendingipaddress – IP address of the service processor
/SP/network pendingipgateway – IP address of the gateway for the subnet
/SP/network pendingipnetmask – Netmask for the service processor subnet
/SP/network pendingipdiscovery - Specifies whether the service processor uses DHCP or static IP address assignment
/SP/network commitpending - Commits the service processor to use the pending settings
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.

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 type the show /SP/network command again (after performing the set /SP/network commitpending=true command) to verify that the parameters have been updated.
