Setting Boot Behavior on SPARC Host Server

Oracle ILOM provides a set of SPARC server properties that enables system administrators to view host control information, as well as optionally set properties to control system boot behavior.

System administrators can view host control information or set configurable SPARC server boot properties from the Oracle ILOM CLI or web interface. For more details about these properties, see the following table.

Table 62 Host Control Information and Boot Properties on SPARC Managed Server

User Interface Configurable Target and User Role:
  • SP CLI: /HOST property_name

  • Web: Host Management > Host Control

  • User Role: Reset and Host Control (r) role is required to modify host configurable properties.


  • To apply property modifications made on the web Host Control page, you must click Save.

Host Control Information


Read-only properties
View SPARC server host control information for:
  • MAC Address – Displays Ethernet MAC address assigned to managed device.

  • Hypervisor Version – Displays Hypervision firmware version.

  • OBP– Displays the OpenBoot PROM (OBP) firmware version.

  • POST Version – Displays the current POST version.

  • SysFW Version – Displays the current Oracle ILOM firmware version installed.

  • Host Status – Displays the current power state for the host operating system.

CLI Syntax for Host Control Information:

show /HOST

Auto Run On Error


False, disabled
False| True

Set to instruct Oracle ILOM to continue booting the SPARC server upon encountering a non-fatal boot error.

CLI Syntax for Auto Run On Error:

set /HOST autorunonerror=true|false

Auto Restart Policy


Reset |Dump Core|None

Set to instruct the Oracle ILOM which action to take if the host operating system hangs.

  • Reset (default) – Oracle ILOM attempts to reset the power on the SPARC server when the Oracle Solaris watchdog timer expires.

  • None – Oracle ILOM takes no action other than to issue a warning.

  • Dump Core – Oracle ILOM attempts to force a core dump of the operating system when the Oracle Solaris watchdog timer expires.

CLI Syntax for Auto Restart Policy:

set /HOST autorestart=reset|dumpcore|none

Boot Timeout


0, timer disabled
Integer between 0 and 36000 seconds

Set a timeout value for the boot timer on the SPARC server.

CLI Syntax for Boot Timeout:

set /HOST boottimeout=0 to 360000

Boot Restart Policy


None, policy disabled

Set to instruct Oracle ILOM whether to restart the SPARC server if the system times out.

CLI Syntax for Boot Restart Policy:

set /HOST bootrestart=reset|none

Max Boot Fails Allowed


3 attempts
Integer between 0 and 10000 attempts.

Set the maximum number of attempts allowed if the Oracle Solaris boot process fails.

If the host does not boot successfully within the number of tries indicated by max boot fail, the host is powered off or power cycled (depending upon the setting of boot fail recovery). In either case, boot timeout is set to 0 (zero seconds), disabling further attempts to restart the host.

CLI Syntax for Max Boot Fails Allowed:

set /HOST maxbootfails=0 to 10000

Boot Fail Recovery


Powercycle |Poweroff | None

Set this property to instruct Oracle ILOM which action to take if the boot process is unsuccessful after reaching the maximum number of boot attempts.

  • Poweroff (default) – Oracle ILOM powers off the SPARC server after reaching the maximum boot attempts allowed.

  • Powercycle – Oracle ILOM power cycles the SPARC server after reaching the maximum boot attempts allowed.

  • None - The Boot Fail Recovery property is disabled.

CLI Syntax for Boot Fail Recovery:

set /HOST bootfailrecovery=off|none|powercycle
