Question: Does the Oracle ILOM service processor (SP) boot up automatically?
Answer: The Oracle ILOM service processor boots automatically when a power cable is connected to your Sun server or CMM. For information about how to connect a power cable to your system chassis or rackmount server, refer to the hardware installation documentation shipped with your rackmount server or system chassis.
Question: Where can I locate documentation for connecting a serial console or terminal to a managed device?
Answer: Refer to the Oracle Sun server or CMM hardware installation guide.
Question: Is a root account provided with Oracle ILOM?
Answer: Oracle ILOM is shipped from the factory with a preconfigured root account. You should use the preconfigured root account for initial login and initial setup of user account(s).
To prevent unauthorized access to the managed device, you should change the preconfigured root account (login: root password: changeme) on each service processor (SP) or chassis monitoring module (CMM).
Question: What format does Oracle ILOM accept for IPv4 and IPv6 network addresses?
Answer: If Oracle ILOM is operating in a dual-stack network environment, the IP address can be entered using either an IPv4 or IPv6 address format.
IPv4 format: 10.8.183.106
IPv6 format: fec0:a:8:b7:214:4fff:5eca:5f7e/64
Question: Are factory default settings provided with Oracle ILOM?
Answer: Factory default settings are provided for most Oracle ILOM system management features. You can use these default settings, or you can customize them to meet your needs. For a list of factory default settings shipped with Oracle ILOM 3.1, see Factory Default Settings .
Question: Which Oracle ILOM user interface should I use?
Answer: Most all Oracle ILOM features and functions are accessible from both the web interface and command-line interface (CLI). A sub-set of Oracle ILOM features and functions are also available from the SNMP interface, IPMI interface, and the CIM WS-Management interface. For more information about Oracle ILOM features that are supported by SNMP, IPMI, and CIM WS-Management, refer to Oracle ILOM 3.1 Protocol Management Reference.
Question: I am not able to establish a network management connection to Oracle ILOM
Answer: If you are experiencing difficulties with connecting to Oracle ILOM, see the following suggested solutions for resolving connection issues:
Verify that a physical Ethernet connection between your network and the NET MGT port on your Sun server or CMM is established.
For a local (non-network) connection to Oracle ILOM, ensure that the IPv4 state is enabled, or both the IPv4 and IPv6 states are enabled for dual-stack network environments.
Use a command-line network tool, like Ping, to verify connectivity to the network.
For IPv6 management connections, ensure that the IPv6 address in the URL is enclosed by brackets.
Web interface URL format:
CLI download file URL format:
-> load -source tftp://[fec0:a:8:b7:214:rfff:fe01:851d]desktop.pkg
Question: If I prematurely deleted the root account, how can I recreate it?
Answer: You can recover the Oracle ILOM root account provided with x86 Sun servers by using the Oracle ILOM Preboot Menu. For instructions, see the x86 Diagnostics Guide for Servers Using ILOM 3.1.
You can also recover the Oracle ILOM root account on the server SP or CMM by resetting the SP or CMM to factory defaults. In the web interface, click ILOM Administration > Configuration Management > Reset Defaults. Resetting the defaults to factory, removes all log files and reverts all configuration properties to default values.
For further information about recovering the root account provided with Oracle ILOM, contact Oracle Services.
Question: What are the latest features available with Oracle ILOM 3.1?
Answer: The Oracle ILOM 3.1 Feature Updates and Release Notes identifies the new feature for each Oracle ILOM 3.1 firmware point release.
