Oracle ILOM is the system management firmware that is preinstalled on the server's SPs. Oracle ILOM enables you to manage and monitor the components in the server through either a web-based or command-line interface.
The Oracle ILOM firmware runs independently of the PDomains, even when PDomains are not powered-on and actively running an operating system. As long as the power cords are connected to the server, and the facility circuit breakers are switched on, the Oracle ILOM firmware is available to use.
When powering on the server for the first time, use the Oracle ILOM firmware command-line interface to configure the server. After the initial configuration, use the Oracle ILOM command-line or web interface for all additional maintenance and administration tasks.
For information about the server-specific Oracle ILOM tasks, refer to Server Administration. For information about Oracle ILOM tasks that are common to all platforms managed by the firmware, refer to the Oracle ILOM documentation:
