Note - TPM enables you to administer the TPM security hardware in your server. For additional information about implementing this feature, refer to the Windows Trusted Platform Module Management documentation provided by Microsoft.
To configure the server to support TPM, complete the following steps:
The BIOS Advanced Settings screen appears (BIOS Advanced Settings Screen).
Figure 7-7 BIOS Advanced Settings Screen
The Trusted Computing screen appears (Trusted Computing Screen).
Figure 7-8 Trusted Computing Screen
A screen appears listing the available TCG/TPM options (TCG/TPM Support Screen).

Note - If the TCG/TPM Support option is already set to Yes, you should still complete the remaining steps in this procedure to ensure that all TPM configuration requirements are satisfied.
Note - The Execute TPM Command setting is set to [Don't Change] by default.

The updated Trusted Computing screen appears indicting that TPM Support is set to Yes and TPM Enable Status is set to Enabled.
Note - You can also specify the LAN settings for the SP using Oracle ILOM. For instructions for setting the IP address in Oracle ILOM, see the Oracle Integrated Lights Out Manager (ILOM) 3.1 Documentation Library at http://www.oracle.com/pls/topic/lookup?ctx=ilom31.
To set the IP address, complete the following steps:

The BIOS Option ROM is 128 Kbytes. Of these 128 Kbytes, approximately 80 Kbytes are used by the VGA controller, the disk controller, and the network interface card. Approximately 48 Kbytes remain for the Option ROM.
To enable or disable Option ROM settings, complete the following steps:
The BIOS PCIPnP screen appears (BIOS PCIPnP Screen).

By default, the SP console (NET MGT) port sends serial port output from the server. Using Oracle ILOM, you can specify that the host console (COMM1) be assigned as owner of the server's serial port output. This feature is useful for Windows kernel debugging, as it enables you to view non-ASCII character traffic from the host console.
You can assign serial port output using either the Oracle ILOM web interface or the command-line interface (CLI). For instructions, see the following sections:
Caution - You should set up the network on the SP before attempting to change the serial port owner to the host server. If the network is not set up, and you switch the serial port owner to the host server, you will be unable to connect using the CLI or web interface to change the serial port owner back to the SP. To return the serial port owner setting to the SP, you will need to restore access to the serial port on the server. For more details about restoring access to the server port on your server, see the Oracle Integrated Lights Out Manager (ILOM) 3.1 Documentation Library at http://www.oracle.com/pls/topic/lookup?ctx=ilom31.
