Obtain the OpenBoot Prompt (Oracle ILOM CLI)

Use this procedure when the host is powered down and you are logged into Oracle ILOM.

  1. Log in to Oracle ILOM.

    See Log In to Oracle ILOM.

    Note - If you have a modular system, ensure that you are logged in to the desired server module.
  2. Change the auto-boot? parameter to false.
    -> set /HOST/bootmode script=”setenv auto-boot? false”

    This command temporarily prevents the OS from booting before you obtain the OpenBoot prompt. This change applies only to a single reset and expires in 10 minutes if the power on the host is not reset.

  3. Reset the host.
    -> reset /System
  4. Switch communication to the host.
    -> start /HOST/console
    Are you sure you want to start /HOST/console (y/n)? y
    Serial console started. To stop, type #.

    The server might take several minutes to complete POST and then displays the OpenBoot prompt.
