Create a Snapshot With the Oracle ILOM Command-Line Interface

Before You Begin

To collect SP data using the Service Snapshot utility, you need the Admin (a) role enabled.


Caution  -  You should not run this utility unless requested to do so by Oracle Services.

  1. Log in to the Oracle ILOM CLI.
  2. To configure the type of data that the snapshot collects, type:

    ->set /SP/diag/snapshot dataset=value

    where value is one of the following:

    • normal – Collect information about Oracle ILOM, host operating system, and hardware configuration.

    • normal-logonly – Collect only log files

    • FRUID – Collect information about installed FRUs, in addition to the data set collected for Normal.

    • fruid-logonly – Collect only log files.

    • full – Collect the maximum information about the server. This option could cause the server to reset.

    • full-logonly – Collect only log files.

  3. To encrypt the output, type:

    -> set /SP/diag/snapshot encrypt_output=[true|false]

  4. To create the snapshot, type:

    ->set /SP/diag/snapshot dump_uri=URI

    URI takes the form: protocol://username:password@host/directory where protocol is sftp or ftp.

    If you set encrypt_output=true, the system prompts for a password that is used later to decrypt the output.

    The snapshot places a zip file in the specified URI.

  5. Unzip the file to access the data produced by the snapshot.
