Your Sun Server X3-2 supports Oracle System Assistant as a default option, which is preinstalled in the server. If Oracle System Assistant is physically installed in your server, but it is not visible from the filesystem, it could be offline, corrupted, or overwritten. Use this procedure to determine whether Oracle System Assistant is installed in your server and is working properly.
To check the Oracle System Assistant installation, do the following:
In the Oracle ILOM web interface, go to the Summary page to check whether Oracle System Assistant is installed in the server. See Access Oracle ILOM Using the Web Interface.
Open a filesystem browser or command-line terminal, navigate to the computer or devices directory, and check whether the Oracle System Assistant USB device is present.
The Oracle System Assistant USB device is labeled: ORACLE_SSM or ORACLE SSM. Double-click the device to ensure that it is accessible.
Access the server BIOS Setup Utility and navigate to the Boot Menu. For information about accessing your server BIOS Setup Utility, see Setting Up BIOS Configuration Parameters.
The Oracle System Assistant device label is ORACLE _SSM or ORACLE SSM.
If the correctly labeled device appears on the boot list, then your server has Oracle System Assistant. To launch the application, see Accessing Oracle System Assistant.
If the device is physically present in the server, but does not appear in the boot list, then Oracle System Assistant might be disabled and offline. Use the next step to check whether Oracle System Assistant is disabled and offline.
Oracle System Assistant is installed on an USB device inside the server. For the location of the internal USB ports for your server, refer to the Service, Servicing the Internal USB Flash Drives (CRU).
If the device is present, try to launch the application, see Accessing Oracle System Assistant.
If the device is present, but cannot be seen from the operating system, it might be disabled and offline. See Enable or Disable Oracle System Assistant.
If the application does not launch, it might contain corrupt data. See Restore Oracle System Assistant.
