Oracle Integrated Lights Out Manager (ILOM) resides on an integrated system service processor (SP) in the Sun Blade server modules. The SP resides on the motherboard and can be accessed through Oracle ILOM. The Oracle ILOM SP has its own unique IP address. The chassis also has an Oracle ILOM, called the Oracle ILOM chassis monitoring module (CMM), which is used to manage chassis functions.
Oracle ILOM firmware allows you to choose either a full-featured, browser-based web interface (shown) or an equivalent command-line interface (CLI).
Oracle Integrated Lights Out Manager (Oracle ILOM) is system management firmware that is preinstalled on an embedded service processor on Oracle's x86-based servers and SPARC-based servers. Oracle ILOM enables you to actively manage and monitor components in your server. Using Oracle ILOM, you can remotely manage and monitor the server as if you were using a locally attached keyboard, monitor, and mouse, regardless of the state of the host system. The Oracle ILOM firmware automatically initializes when standby power is applied to the server.
With Oracle ILOM, you can:
View graphical (web browser) and non-graphical (CLI) consoles for the host.
Monitor the current status of server module sensors and indicators.
Monitor hardware errors and faults as they occur.
Send events using SNMP traps or email alerts when faults occur.
Remotely control the power state of your server module.
Configure the server module hardware.
The service processor (SP) has a dedicated Ethernet port. The SP runs its own Oracle ILOM embedded operating system and provides out-of-band management capability. In addition, you can access Oracle ILOM from the server's host operating system (Oracle Solaris, Oracle Linux, other variants of Linux, or Windows).
