Configuring the Network Management Port
If your server uses Sun system firmware 6.2 or subsequent compatible versions, do not perform the following configuration. Your ALOM CMT system controller network management port is preconfigured at the factory.
If your server uses an earlier version of firmware than Sun system firmware 6.2, you must configure the network management port before you can use it.
This appendix includes the following topic:
To access the system controller using the network for the first time, you must first configure the SC network management port through the SC serial management port.
You set these network parameters according to the specific details of your network configuration:
To configure these parameters you must use the setsc command. The usage is:
1. Set the netmask for the system controller.
This example uses 255.255.255.0 to set the netmask. Your network environment subnet might require a different netmask. Use a netmask number most appropriate to your environment.
2. Set the IP address for the system controller.
3. Set the IP address for the system controller gateway.
4. Set the if_network parameter to true.
5. Use the showsc command to verify that the parameters were set correctly.
The showsc command displays all the configuration parameters and their values, as shown in the example below.
Note - The network addresses and parameters shown in the examples are for illustration purposes only. The four parameters marked with asterisks must be set according to the specific details of your network configuration for the network management port to function properly.
