Oracle Hardware Management Pack

Oracle Hardware Management Pack is available for many x86–based servers and some SPARC-based servers. It includes the categories of tools described in the following sections:

Oracle Hardware Management Agents

The Oracle Hardware Management Agent and associated Oracle Hardware SNMP Plugins and Oracle Hardware Storage SNMP Plugins (SNMP Plugins) provide a way to monitor your server hardware. With the Hardware Management Agent SNMP Plugins you can use SNMP to monitor the Oracle servers and server modules in your data center, without having to connect the management port of the service processor to the network. This in-band functionality enables you to use a single IP address (the host's IP) for monitoring you servers and server modules.

The Hardware Management Agent SNMP Plugins run on the host operating system of Oracle servers. The Oracle Hardware SNMP Plugin uses the keyboard controller-style (KCS) interface to communicate with the service processor, and the Oracle Hardware Storage SNMP Plugins use the Oracle Hardware Storage Access Libraries to communicate with the service processor. By regularly polling the service processor, information about the current state of the server is fetched automatically by the Hardware Management Agent. This information is then made available through SNMP, using the SNMP Plugins.

Note - Previous versions of Hardware Management Pack have included a separate Storage Management Agent, but starting with Oracle Hardware Management Pack 2.1, the Storage Management Agent has been merged with the functionality of the Hardware Management Agent. System storage information is now available through SNMP with the sunStorageMIB.

Oracle Server CLI Tools

Oracle Server CLI Tools (CLI Tools) are command-line interface tools that configure Oracle servers. CLI Tools is a Hardware Management Pack component that you install using Oracle Hardware Management Pack Installer . The CLI tools are available on the following operating systems: Oracle Solaris, Linux, Windows, and Oracle VM.

Configure BIOS CMOS settings, device boot order, and some SP settings.
biosconfig CLI
Query, update, and validate firmware versions on supported SAS storage devices, embedded SAS storage controllers, LSI SAS storage expanders, and disk drives.
fwupdate CLI
Restore, set, and view Oracle ILOM configuration settings, as well as viewing and setting Oracle ILOM properties that are associated with network management, clock configuration, and user management.
ilomconfig CLI
View or create RAID volumes on storage drives that are attached to RAID controllers, including storage arrays.
raidconfig CLI

A version of IPMItool is provided as part of the Hardware Management Pack. It can be installed if your system does not already have IPMItool installed. IPMItool is a command-line application that enables you to manage and configure devices that support the IPMI protocol.
