If your network uses DHCP to assign IP addresses, the DHCP device will automatically assign an IP address to the SP. If your network does not use DHCP, follow this procedure to assign a static IP address to the SP.
Note - For more information on configuring Oracle ILOM, refer to the SPARC T4 Series Servers Administration Guide and the Oracle ILOM documentation.
For serial connection instructions, see Connect a Terminal or Emulator to the SER MGT Port. Log in to the SP as root (changeme is the default root password) to display the Oracle ILOM (->) prompt.

This example uses 255.255.255.0 to set the netmask. Your network environment subnet might require a different netmask. Use a netmask number most appropriate to your environment.

Note - You can run the show /SP/network command again (after performing the set /SP/network commitpending=true command) to verify that the parameters have been updated.
