Replicate the Oracle ILOM Firmware Configuration on Other Oracle Systems (Oracle ILOM)

Use Oracle Integrated Lights Out Manager (ILOM) to enhance consistency and standardize the service processor (SP) or chassis monitoring module (CMM) configuration on multiple Oracle systems by: 1) capturing the configuration settings from a model server SP or CMM, and 2) replicating the captured configuration on other server SPs or CMMs.

Before You Begin

  • Log in to Oracle ILOM. For instructions see Launch and Log In to Oracle ILOM.

  • Ensure that you have the privileges associated with the following roles in Oracle ILOM: Admin (a), User Management (u), Console (c), Reset and Host Control (r), and Read-Only (o).

Follow these steps to replicate Oracle ILOM configuration parameters from one server SP or CMM on other server SPs or CMMs.

  1. Create a model SP or CMM configuration by customizing the Oracle ILOM configuration parameters as required.

    For instance, define user accounts, modify network settings, set alert notifications, define system policies, and so on.

  2. Make a backup copy of the model SP or CMM configuration using the Configuration Backup operation in Oracle ILOM.

    For details, see Back Up the Current Oracle ILOM Firmware Configuration (Oracle ILOM).

  3. Edit the backup copy of the model configuration using an XML editor.

    Editing Guidelines: Consider editing configuration parameters for network settings, such as the static IP address, or other Oracle ILOM settings that are not applicable to the target server SP or CMM.

    For further guidance, refer to the Oracle ILOM Configuration and Maintenance Guide for firmware version 3.1 or 3.2.

  4. Provision the target server SP or CMM with a copy of the model Oracle ILOM configuration by using the Configuration Restore operation in Oracle ILOM.

    For details, see Restore the Backed Up Oracle ILOM Configuration or Reset the Configuration to Factory Defaults (Oracle ILOM).
