There are two approaches to interacting with the service processor:
Oracle ILOM shell (default) -- The Oracle ILOM shell provides access to Oracle ILOM's features and functions through a command-line interface.
Oracle ILOM browser interface -- The Oracle ILOM browser interface supports the same set of features and functions as the shell, but through windows on a browser interface.
Note - Unless indicated otherwise, all examples of interaction with the service processor are depicted with Oracle ILOM shell commands.
You can log into multiple service processor accounts simultaneously and have separate Oracle ILOM shell commands executing concurrently under each account.
Note - The CLI includes a feature that enables you to access Oracle Solaris Fault Manager commands, such as fmadm, fmdump, and fmstat, from within the Oracle ILOM shell. This feature is referred to as the Oracle ILOM faultmgmt shell. For more information about the Oracle Solaris Fault Manager commands, see the SPARC T4 Series Servers Administration Guide and the Oracle Solaris documentation.
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 provide a null-modem configuration.
The default Oracle ILOM login account is root with a default password changeme.
Example of logging in to the Oracle ILOM CLI:
ssh email@example.com Password: Oracle(R) Integrated Lights Out Manager Version 220.127.116.11 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 service processor with the Oracle ILOM CLI.
The following Oracle ILOM commands are commonly used for fault management:
Note - You can use fmadm faulty in the faultmgmt shell as an alternative to show faulty.
