Configure SP In-band (Sideband) Access

This procedure describes how to access the SP from an in-band (or sideband) management using a host network port.

If you perform this procedure using a network connection, you might lose connectivity to the server. Using a serial connection for this procedure eliminates the possibility of losing connectivity during sideband management configuration changes.

  1. Log in to Oracle ILOM.

    See Log In to Oracle ILOM.

  2. If you logged in using the serial port, you can assign a static IP address.

    For instructions, see the information about assigning an IP address in the installation guide for your server.

  3. View the current network settings.
    -> show /SP/network
     
    /SP/network
       Targets:
           interconnect
           ipv6
           test
     
       Properties:
           commitpentding = (Cannot show property)
           dhcp_server_ip = none
           ipaddress = 129.148.62.55
           ipdiscovery = static
           ipgateway = 129.148.62.225
           ipnetmask = 255.255.255.0

       Commands:
           cd
           set
           show
  4. Set the SP management port to a sideband port. (where n is 0-3).

    For SPARC T4-1B systems, n is 0-1. For all other systems, n is 0-3.

    -> set /SP/network pendingmanagementport=/SYS/MB/NETn
     
    -> set /SP/network commitpending=true
     
  5. Verify the change.
