If you plan to connect to the SP through its NET MGT port, the SP must have a valid IP address.
By default, the server is configured to obtain an IP address from DHCP services in your network. If the network your server is connected to does not support DHCP for IP addressing, perform this procedure.
Note - To configure the server to support DHCP, refer to the Oracle ILOM documentation.
-> set /SP/network pendingipdiscovery=static Set 'pendingipdiscovery' to 'static'
Oracle ILOM is shipped with IPv4 DHCP and IPv6 Stateless default network settings.
This setting configures the host to stop at the ok prompt instead of automatically booting the preinstalled OS.
-> set /SP/network pendingipaddress=service-processor-IPaddr Set 'pendingipaddress' to 'service-processor-IPaddr'
For more information about the administration tasks such as modifying default network connectivity settings, refer to the Oracle ILOM documentation.
-> set /SP/network pendingipgateway=gateway-IPaddr Set 'pendingipgateway' to 'gateway-IPaddr'
-> set /SP/network pendingipnetmask=255.255.255.0 Set 'pendingipnetmask' to '255.255.255.0'
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.

-> set /SP/network commitpending=true Set 'commitpending' to 'true'
Note - You can type the show /SP/network command again to verify that the parameters have been updated.
