Back Up the Current Oracle ILOM Firmware Configuration (Oracle Hardware Management Pack)

Before You Begin

Ensure that you have root privileges.

  1. Access the operating system command line interface.

    For more information, see Accessing the Host Console or Accessing Oracle Hardware Management Pack.

  2. Use the ilomconfig export command:

    ilomconfig export config --xmlfile=filename.xml

    A prompt appears asking whether you want to specify a passphrase. The passphrase is used to encrypt sensitive data in the backup file. If you specify a passphrase, the passphrase is required to restore the backed up configuration. If you do not specify a passphrase, sensitive data will not be included in the backup file.

  3. Specify your passphrase choices:
    • If you choose to encrypt sensitive data in the file, type y, and then specify a passphrase.

    • If you choose not to include sensitive data in the backup file, type n.
