The Sun Server X3-2L supports dual-stack IPv4 and IPv6 settings, which enable Oracle ILOM to fully operate in an IPv4 and IPv6 network environment. For IPv4 configurations, DHCP is enabled by default, allowing a DHCP server on the network to automatically assign network settings to the server. For IPv6 configurations, IPv6 stateless auto-configuration is enabled by default, allowing an IPv6 router on the network to assign the network settings. In a typical configuration, you will accept these settings assigned by the DHCP server or IPv6 router.
Note - To determine the IP address or host name assigned by the DHCP server, use the network tools provided with the DHCP server or IPv6 router.
The following procedures enable you to test that the assigned settings are working correctly and to establish a connection to Oracle ILOM locally and remotely.
To log in locally, see Log In to Oracle ILOM Using a Local Serial Connection.
To log in remotely, use the IP address, host name, or IPv6 local link name assigned to the server SP and follow the instructions in Log In to Oracle ILOM Remotely Using the Command-Line Interface.
