The preboot menu allows you to recover an Oracle ILOM firmware image by updating (flashing) the SP firmware.
This file is available on the Oracle MOS download site.
Note - Updating the SP firmware using the preboot menu requires a .flash file instead of the .pkg file used to update the SP from Oracle ILOM.
Refer to the Sun Blade X3-2B (formerly Sun Blade X6270 M3) Administration Guide for detailed preboot menu and Oracle ILOM information.
Choose one of the following methods:
Press the Locate button during the SP boot process. See Managing the Locate LED.
Wait for a pause in the bootstrap process, and then type xyzzy .
The preboot prompt appears.
net flash IPaddress path/name.flash
Where IPaddress is the IP address of a TFTP server,
path is the path to the file relative to /tftpboot.
name is the first part of the .flash file name.
Preboot> net flash 10.8.173.25 images/system-rom.flash
After a series of messages, the preboot prompt appears.
The preboot menu exits and Oracle ILOM boots.
