Set the Oracle ILOM CLI Session Timeout (CLI)

  1. Access the Oracle ILOM CLI.

    See Accessing Oracle ILOM From the CLI.

  2. Set the Oracle ILOM CLI session timeout.
    -> set /SP/cli timeout=value

    where value is the number of minutes for session timeout (11440).

    For example, to set the timeout for 100 minutes:

    -> set /SP/cli timeout=100
    Set ’timeout’ to ’100’

    Note - Setting a timeout value of 0 disables the timeout feature.

    The CLI session timeout is set.
