Cable the Server to Connect to Oracle ILOM

  1. Determine the type of connection to Oracle ILOM that best suits your environment.

    For information about management connections to Oracle ILOM, see Oracle ILOM Management Connection Options.

  2. To establish a dedicated network management connection to Oracle ILOM:
    1. Connect an Ethernet cable between the NET MGT port on the server and the network switch.

      DHCP and IPv6 stateless auto-configuration are enabled by default, allowing a DHCP server on the network to automatically assign network settings to the service processor (SP).

    2. Determine the IP address assigned to the server SP.

      Establish a serial connection to Oracle ILOM, and then view the properties under the /network and /network/ipv6 hierarchies.

    3. Type the IP address or host name into a browser address bar.

      The Oracle ILOM Login dialog box appears.

      For further instructions, see Launch and Log In to Oracle ILOM Through a Remote Ethernet Connection.

  3. To establish a dedicated local (serial) management connection to Oracle ILOM, perform the following steps:
    1. Connect a serial cable between the SER MGT port on the server and a terminal device.

    2. To create a local connection to Oracle ILOM, press Enter.

      The Oracle ILOM Login prompt appears. For further instructions, see Log In to Oracle ILOM Through a Local Serial Connection.
