Generate a Non-Maskable Interrupt (CLI)

Note -  The setting for generating a non-maskable interrupt from Oracle ILOM might not be supported on all Oracle servers.


Caution  -  Depending on the host OS configuration, generating a non-maskable interrupt (NMI) might cause the OS to crash, stop responding, or wait for external debugger input.

  1. Obtain permission from Oracle Service personnel before performing this procedure.
  2. To generate an NMI from the Oracle ILOM interfaces, verify that you have Reset and Host Control (r) privileges.
  3. To send an NMI to the host, from the Oracle ILOM CLI, type set /HOST/ generate_host_nmi=true.
