Connect Through the Modular System CMM Serial Port

You can access the server module SP by first accessing the chassis CMM ILOM through a terminal or terminal emulator connected to the RJ-45 serial port on the chassis. Then you can connect to the server module SP through the CLI of the CMM ILOM software.

  1. Verify that the terminal, laptop, or terminal server that will connect to the chassis is operational.
  2. Configure the terminal device or terminal emulation software with these settings:
    • 8N1 (eight data bits, no parity, one stop bit)

    • 9600 baud (the default, but can be set to any standard rate up to 57600)

    • Disable hardware flow control (CTS/RTS)

  3. Connect a serial cable from the chassis serial port to the terminal device.

    Refer to the modular system chassis documentation for the location of the serial port.

    The serial port requires a cable with these pin assignments.

    Signal Description
    Request To Send (RTS)
    Data Terminal Ready (DTR)
    Transmit Data (TXD)
    Receive Data (RXD)
    Data Carrier Detect (DCD)
    Clear To Send (CTS)
  4. Press Enter on the terminal device.

    The connection between the terminal device and the CMM is established. If you have connected to the serial port before it has been powered up or during its power-up sequence, you will see boot messages. After the system boots, the CMM ILOM software displays its login prompt:

    SUNCMMnnnnnnnnnn login:

    The first string in the prompt is the default host name, which consists of the prefix SUNCMM followed by the CMM ILOM MAC address. The MAC address for each service processor is unique.

  5. Log in to Oracle ILOM on the CMM by typing your user name and password.

    The factory default Oracle ILOM root password is changeme.

    You are now logged in to the CMM ILOM web interface.

    After you have successfully logged in, the CMM ILOM displays its default command prompt:

  6. Navigate to the server module Oracle ILOM:
    -> cd /CH/BLn/SP/cli

    In this command, BL is followed by the slot identifier number (the lowest is 0) that represents this server module in the chassis.

  7. Type the start command.
    -> start

    A prompt is displayed.

  8. Type y to continue.

    The Oracle ILOM software running on the server module SP prompts for the password specific to that server module SP.

    Note - The CMM ILOM logs into the server module Oracle ILOM using the user name in the user target under /CH/BLn/SP/cli (where n is the slot where the server module is installed).

  9. Type the password when prompted.

    The default password is changeme.

    You are now logged into Oracle ILOM on the server module SP. You can continue to power on the server module host for the first time. See Powering On the Server Module for the First Time
