When you power on the server, the boot process begins under the control of the Oracle Integrated Lights Out Manager system console. The ILOM system console displays status and error messages generated by firmware-based tests during server startup.
By default, ILOM system console messages are directed to the NET MGT port. The NET MGT port uses DHCP and allows connections using SSH.
Note - If you are unable to use DHCP on your network, you must connect to the ILOM service processor using the serial management port to configure the network management port for your network. See Assign a Static IP Address to the NET MGT Port.
