Enabling the Host-to-ILOM Interconnect

As of Oracle ILOM 3.0.12, a communication channel known as the Host-to-ILOM Interconnect was added to enable you to communicate locally with Oracle ILOM from the host operating system (OS) without the use of a network management connection (NET MGT) to the server. The Host-to-ILOM Interconnect is available on the latest Oracle servers and is particularly useful when you want to perform these Oracle ILOM tasks locally:

Platform Server Support and ILOM Access Through the Host-to-ILOM Interconnect

Oracle servers supporting the Host-to-ILOM Interconnect are supplied with an internal LAN-over-USB device installed.

The Host-to-ILOM Interconnect provides two network connection points known as the Oracle ILOM Service Processor (SP) connection point and the host operating system (OS) connection point. These must each have a non-routable IPv4 address for the Host-to-ILOM Interconnect to work. Non-routable IPv4 addresses are considered secured private addresses that prevent external internet users from navigating to your system.

Note ‐ By default, Oracle provides non-routable IPv4 addresses for each connection point (Oracle ILOM SP and host OS). Oracle recommends not changing these addresses unless a conflict exists in your network environment with the provided non-routable IPv4 addresses.

Host-to-ILOM Interconnect Configuration Options

You can choose to either have the Host-to-ILOM Interconnect automatically configured for you or manually configured. Details about both of these configuration options are provided below.
