Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control Plug-In for Oracle Hardware communicates with your target server's Oracle Integrated Lights Out Manager (ILOM) service processor for hardware inventory, health and configuration data. An IPMI interface is required between the host operating system and the server's service processor. By default this interface is configured on the following operating systems:
Oracle Solaris Operating System
Microsoft Windows Server operating systems
On Linux based operating systems the IPMI interface might need to be configured manually. The following sections describe the configuration procedures you should follow on each server you want to monitor by enabling communication with the Oracle ILOM service processor.
