Use Oracle Integrated Lights Out Manager (ILOM) to prevent the loss of working BIOS settings by backing up the current BIOS configuration.

Before You Begin

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

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

This procedure provides web and command-line interface (CLI) instructions for a server service processor (SP).

  • To create a backup copy of the current BIOS configuration:
    • From the Web interface:
      1. Click System Management > BIOS.
      2. Select a Transfer Method for the Backup process.
      3. Click Start Backup.
    • From the CLI, type:
      set /SYSTEM/BIOS/Config/dump_uri=
      ipaddress_or_hostname/ directorypath/filename
