Oracle ILOM targets represent all software and hardware components and services managed by Oracle ILOM. Targets are identified by a hierarchal path very similar to the directories and files of a file system. Each target has properties and commands that can affect it.
Target properties are of two types:
Read and write – Display the value of these properties with the show command. Change the properties with the set command. A typical read and write property would be an IP address.
Write only – You cannot display the value of these properties with the show command. The value is typically displayed as (Cannot show property). When you set the property value with the set command, it initiates a one-time action. For example, when the commitpending property is set to true, it copies the pending network properties into the standard network properties.
Target commands are specific to the permissions of the user that wants to affect the target. For example, the ilom-admin user can use the show or set command to affect an IP address property, but the ilom-operator user can only use the show command.
