Oracle ILOM BIOS Configuration Backup and Restore reports "Partial Restore" status (15790853, formerly CR 7167796)

Any time an Oracle ILOM Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) BIOS configuration is loaded, the configuration file might contain inactive parameters, that is, parameters that are no longer valid for the current version of the BIOS, or typographical errors. This can result in the failure of one or more parameters to load. When this occurs, the Oracle ILOM /System/BIOS/Config/restore_status parameter, which provides the user with the status of the last attempted configuration load, will report that the load was partially successful. The value of /System/BIOS/Config/restore_status parameter will not change until a subsequent load of an Oracle ILOM UEFI BIOS configuration occurs.

Affected software:

  • Oracle ILOM 3.1 and 3.2

  • Releases 1.0 and later
