Access the SP (Oracle ILOM)

Note - Unless indicated otherwise, all examples of interaction with the SP are depicted with Oracle ILOM shell commands, rather than the Oracle ILOM browser interface.

You can access the server module's SP either directly or through the CMM of the modular system. The following steps are in terms of connecting directly to the server module.

  1. Establish connectivity to the SP, using one of the following methods:
    • Serial management port – Connect a terminal device (such as an ASCII terminal or laptop with terminal emulation) to the serial management port. On the CMM, this connector is labeled SER MGT.

      Set up your terminal device for 9600 baud, 8 bit, no parity, 1 stop bit, and no handshaking, and use a null-modem configuration (transmit and receive signals crossed over to enable DTE-to-DTE communication). The crossover adapters supplied with the server module provide a null-modem configuration.

    • Network management port – Connect this port to an Ethernet network. On the CMM, this connector is labeled NET MGT. This port requires an IP address. By default, this port is configured for DHCP, or you can assign an IP address.
  2. Decide which interface to use:
    • Oracle ILOM CLI – The CLI is the default Oracle ILOM UI. Most of the commands and examples in this service manual use this interface. The default login account is root with a password of changeme.
    • Oracle ILOM browser interface – Can be used when you access the SP through the network management port and have a browser. Refer to the Oracle ILOM 3.0 documentation for details. This interface is not referenced in this service manual.
  3. Log in to Oracle ILOM.

    The default Oracle ILOM login account is root with a default password of changeme.

    Example of logging in to the Oracle ILOM CLI:

    Waiting for daemons to initialize...
    Daemons ready
    Oracle (R) Integrated Lights Out Manager
    Version r57146
    Copyright (c) 2010, Oracle and/or its affiliates, Inc. All rights reserved.
    Warning: password is set to factory default.

    The Oracle ILOM -> prompt indicates that you are accessing the SP with the Oracle ILOM CLI.

  4. Perform Oracle ILOM commands that provide the diagnostic information you need.

    The following Oracle ILOM commands are commonly used for fault management:
