Before You Begin
Note - This procedure assumes that you have connected the server to your network through an Ethernet cable.
When the IPMI 2.0 Configuration screen is displayed, select the LAN Configuration menu item.
The service processor’s IP address is displayed using the following format: Current IP address in BMC: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
ssh -l root sp_ip_address
login: root password: changeme
Note - If you have changed the default SP serial port settings, make sure you reset them to the default settings.
Only accounts with Administrator privileges are enabled to configure the SP serial port. See the Oracle ILOM 3.0 documentation.
The screens that are displayed vary, depending on the method that you chose for assigning network information to the server (DHCP or static IP address).
After you have entered the system-configuration information, the server completes the boot process and displays the login prompt.
