image:Icon for Oracle ILOM

You can use Oracle Integrated Lights Out Manager (ILOM) to set the next boot device on your server. Setting the next boot device in Oracle ILOM causes your server to boot from the selected device on the next power reset. For subsequent power resets, the server automatically reverts to booting from the boot order list.

The following procedure provides both web and command-line interface (CLI) instructions for the server service processor (SP).

Before You Begin

  • Log in to Oracle ILOM. For instructions for accessing and logging in to Oracle ILOM, see Launch and Log In to Oracle ILOM.

  • Ensure that you have Reset and Host Control (r) role privileges in Oracle ILOM.

  • To set a boot device for the next power reset:
    • From the Web interface:
      1. Click Host Management > Host Console, and then select a boot device.
      2. Click Save.
      3. Click Host Management > Power Control, and then select Power-Cycle.
      4. Click Save.
    • From the CLI:
      1. Type:

        set /HOST/boot_device=boot_device

        Where boot_device is one of the following: disk, floppy, bios, cdrom, pxe, diagnostics, or default

      2. Type:

        reset /System
