Establishing User Accounts and Roles

The Oracle ILOM software that is preinstalled on the SP is preconfigured with two user accounts:

  • root – Create additional user accounts, as needed.

  • default – Limited to password recovery of the root account and requires proof of physical presence at the server.

Use the following guidelines to establish additional user accounts and roles in Oracle ILOM. Assign user privileges to a user account from the web interface or CLI. For details, refer to Oracle ILOM Administrator's Guide for Configuration and Maintenance, Firmware Release 4.0.x at https://www.oracle.com/goto/ilom/docs

  • Configure a maximum of 10 local user accounts or a centralized authentication service to allow additional remote user accounts. See Adding Oracle ILOM User Accounts.

  • Use the Administrator or Operator profile to assign a set of predefined user roles to a single user account or configure the Advanced Roles profile to assign any of the six predefined user roles to a single account.

  • Each user account is assigned specific roles that allow a user to execute certain Oracle ILOM commands and perform certain actions on a specific set of components. By specifying roles for each user account, you can control which operations each user is allowed to perform. For a complete description of the available roles and how to configure roles, refer to the Oracle ILOM documentation.
