Sun Blade X6250 Server Module ELOM Overview
This chapter serves as an overview to the Sun Blade X6250 server module’s Embedded Lights Out Manager (ELOM).
The ELOM provides a dedicated system of hardware and supporting software that enables you to manage your Sun server independently of the operating system and through several interfaces. The following sections describe some of the features of the Sun Blade X6250 server module service processor’s ELOM:
The following table shows common tasks and the management interfaces used to perform each task.
Sun has configured the SP controller and SP firmware on your server to reflect the most common default settings used in the field. It is unlikely that you will need to change any of these defaults.
The ELOM is shipped with one preconfigured administrator account:
User name: root
The preconfigured administrator account, known as root, cannot be deleted. You can only change the account password. The root account offers built-in administrative privileges (read and write access) to all service processor features and commands. To increase security, change the default password to a new, unique password. See Chapter 5 for details.
|Note - The Chassis Manager Module (CMM) Integrated Lights Out Manager (ILOM) is shipped with an identical preconfigured administrator account, with user name root and the default password set to changeme.|
The Locator LED (also called the system indicator LED) is a small light on the front panel. Use the LED to help you locate the server module from among many other server modules in a chassis in a data center.
The front panel of your Sun Blade X6250 server module has a Fault Indicator LED. You can use the state of the Fault Indicator LED to determine the status of your server. For normal server operation, the LED is off (not lit). A solidly lit amber LED indicates critical error, and a blinking LED indicates a warning. Use the ELOM to troubleshoot the system when the Fault Indicator LED is blinking (see Managing the System Indicator and Fault LED).
1. If the amber LED on the front panel is solidly lit, power off the server module, and remove it from the chassis or rack.
|Caution - To remove the server module from the chassis, follow the procedures detailed in the Sun Blade X6250 Server Module Service Manual.|
2. Open the unit, and locate the two blue or red push buttons.
One of these, when pressed, will light up the LED failure indicators next to any defunct Dual Inline Memory Module (DIMM).
Similarly if one of the two CPUs in the Sun Blade X6250 server module is triggering the front panel Fault Indicator LED, then the indicator next to the defunct CPU will light up.
