Manually Configure the Local Interconnect

Note - Alternatively, you can use the Oracle Hardware Management Pack 2.1.0 software or later to auto-configure the Local Interconnect connection points on a managed server. For local interconnect auto-configuration instructions, see the Oracle Hardware Management Pack User's Guide.

Before You Begin

Follow these steps to manually configure the internal Ethernet USB connection points between the host OS and the Oracle ILOM SP:

  1. To manually configure the internal Ethernet USB connection parameters for the host operating system, do the following:
    1. Verify that the server supports an internal Ethernet-over-USB interface.

      To verify whether a server supports a local interconnnect management connection to Oracle ILOM, refer to the section describing Oracle ILOM supported features in the server administration guide.

    2. Ensure that the OS specific Ethernet device driver was installed by the OS software distribution on the managed server.

      If an OS specific Ethernet device driver was not provided during the operating system installation, you can obtain the device driver for the internal Ethernet-over-USB interface from the Oracle Hardware Management Pack 2.1.0 or later software distribution. For more information about how to extract this file from the Oracle Hardware Management Pack software distribution, refer to the Oracle Hardware Management Pack User's Guide.

    3. Confirm that the host operating system on the managed server recognizes the internal Ethernet-over-USB interface. Then manually assign network parameters to the host OS connection point.

      For guidelines, see Host OS Interconnect Guidelines for Manual Configuration.

  2. To manually modify the Local Host Interconnect properties for the Oracle ILOM SP, follow these steps:
    1. Review Oracle ILOM SP Interconnect Properties .
    2. Log in to Oracle ILOM using a web browser or a CLI shell.

      For log in instructions see, Logging In to Oracle ILOM Server SP or CMM.

    3. To modify the SP Local Host Interconnect properties in Oracle ILOM, perform the following steps for the applicable Oracle ILOM interface.
      Oracle ILOM Interface
      1. In the Oracle ILOM SP web interface, click ILOM Administration > Connectivity.
      2. Scroll down the page to the Local Host Interconnect section and click Configure.

      3. In the Configure USB Ethernet Parameters dialog, clear the check box for Host Managed, enable the check box for State, and only if necessary, modify the local non-routable IPv4 address or netmask addresses provided for the SP, then click Save.

        Note. You do not need to modify the preconfigured IP address or netmask address assigned to the Oracle ILOM SP, unless a conflict with these parameters exists in your network.

      CLI shell
      1. Navigate to the /network/interconnect working directory on the managed server.

        For example:

        From SP CLI, type: cd /SP/network/interconnect

        From CMM CLI, type: cd /Servers/Blades/BLn/network/interconnect

      2. To disable the hostmanaged property and to set the Local Host Interconnect state to true, type the following:

        set hostmanaged=disabled

        set state=true

        Note. You do not need to modify the preconfigured non-routable IP address and netmask address assigned to the Oracle ILOM SP, unless a conflict with these parameters exists in your network.

      3. To modify the local non-routable IPv4 address or netmask address provided for the SP, type the following:

        set pendingipaddress=specify_new_address set pendingipnetmask=specify_new_address set commitpending=true

  3. To test the local interconnect management connection between the host OS and the Oracle ILOM SP, perform any of the following:
    • On the managed server host operating system, using a web browser or a CLI shell, log in to the Oracle ILOM SP by entering the non-routable IP address that is assigned to the SP USB Ethernet connection point.

      Expected results for:

      Web browser connection – The Oracle ILOM Login page appears.

      CLI shell connection – An authorization prompt for Oracle ILOM appears.

    • Ping the local interconnect SP address from the host OS.

      For instructions, see Test IPv4 and IPv6 Connectivity.
