Oracle ILOM Enhancement Allows Enabling IPv4 only, IPv6 only, or Dual Stack

Oracle ILOM's standard network connectivity features support the ability to configure an IPv4 network connection or a dual-stack (IPv4 and IPv6) network connection. Starting with system software release 1.4.2, Oracle ILOM's enhanced network connectivity properties support the ability to configure a static IPv6 gateway address and any of the following type of network connections: IPv4 only, IPv6 only, or dual-stack (IPv4 and IPv6 enabled).

The following web and command-line interface (CLI) instructions provide details for viewing and modifying the network settings that are assigned to the SP.

To modify the SP network settings from the Oracle ILOM web interface, do the following:

  1. Log in to Oracle ILOM as an Administrator.

  2. Click ILOM Administration > Connectivity > Network.

  3. Modify the settings on the Network Settings page as required.

    For further details about how to configure the properties on the Network Settings page, click the More Details link.

  4. Click Save to save your network property changes in Oracle ILOM.


    Note -  All user sessions on the SP are terminated upon modifying and saving IP network property changes. To log back in to Oracle ILOM, use the newly assigned service processor IP address.

To modify the SP network settings from the Oracle ILOM CLI, do the following:

  1. Log in to Oracle ILOM as an Administrator.

  2. To view the assigned IPv4 and IPv6 network settings on the SP, perform the following:

    For IPv4, type: show /SP/network

    For IPv6, type: show /SP/network/ipv6

  3. To view the descriptions about each IPv4 and IPv6 network property, perform the following:

    For IPv4, type: help /SP/network

    For IPv6, type: help /SP/network/ipv6

  4. To modify the IPv4 and IPv6 network properties on the SP, issue the set command.

    IPv4 Example:

    set /SP/network state=enabled|ipv4-only|ipv6-only|disabled pendingipdiscovery=static|dhcp pendingipaddress=value pendingipgateway=value pendingipnetmask=value

    IPv6 Example:

    set /SP/network/ipv6 state=enabled|disabled pending_static_ipaddress=value/subnet_mask_value pending_static_ipgatewayaddress=value


    Note -  A dual-stack network connection is enabled when both the IPv4 and IPv6 State properties are set to enabled. By default, Oracle ILOM arrives out-of-the-box with network settings enabled for a dual stack (IPv4 and IPv6) network connection. If the IPv4 State property is enabled (/SP/network state=enabled) and the IPv6 State property is disabled (/SP/network/ipv6 state=disabled), Oracle ILOM will support an IPv4-only network connection.
  5. To commit the pending network changes (IPv4 or IPv6) in Oracle ILOM, type:

    set /SP/network commitpending=true


    Note -  All user sessions on the SP are terminated upon modifying and saving IP network property changes. To log back in to Oracle ILOM, use the newly assigned service processor IP address.
