Property
Default Value
Description
State
(state=)
Enabled
Enabled |Disabled
The network State property is enabled by default. This property must always be enabled in order for Oracle ILOM to operate in an IPv4 network environment or in a dual-stack IPv4 and IPv6 network environment.
CLI Syntax to Set Network State:
set /SP|CMM/network state=enabled|disabled
MAC Address
Out of Band MAC Address
Sideband MAC Address
Read-only
macaddress=| outofbandaddress= |sidebandmacaddress=
The media access control (MAC) addresses for the server SP and CMM are set at the factory.
The MAC Address properties for both the SP and CMM are non-configurable read-only properties in Oracle ILOM.
CLI Syntax to Show MAC Address Properties:
show /SP|CMM/network
Management Port
(managementport=)
MGMT
MGMT |NETn
All servers shipped with Oracle ILOM include a physical network management port (MGT) used for connecting to Oracle ILOM over a network. Some systems shipped with Oracle ILOM also support sideband management. Sideband management shares the use of a physical data port (NETn) on the server to permit network access to both the host operating system and Oracle ILOM.
For systems supporting this option, network administrators can either choose to accept the default Management Port property (MGMT) or modify the Management Port property for sideband management use (NETn).
CLI Syntax for SP Management Port:
set /SP/network pendingmanagementport=MGMT|NETn
set /SP|CMM/network commitpending=true
Related Information:
VLAN Tag (pendingvlan_id=)
(none)
Integer between 1 and 4079
In Oracle ILOM, VLAN tagging is disabled by default. While VLAN tagging is disabled, the system does not generate VLAN-tagged Ethernet frames and does not process incoming VLAN-tagged Ethernet frames. If you enable VLAN tagging, the system can generate and receive VLAN-tagged Ethernet frames in accordance with the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) 802.1Q standard. Specify the VLAN tag as an integer between 1 and 4079. Alternatively, use a VLAN Tag value of 0 in the web interface or ““ in the CLI to disable VLAN tagging.
CLI Syntax for VLAN Tag:
set /SP/network pendingvlan_id=[1–4079|””] commitpending=true
IPv4 IP Discovery Mode (ipdiscovery=)
DHCP
DHCP |Static
The property for IPv4 Discovery Mode in Oracle ILOM is set to DHCP by default. When this property is set to DHCP, Oracle ILOM uses DHCP to determine the physical network address for the server SP or CMM.
Optionally, network administrators can disable the DHCP property and choose to configure a static IPv4 network address, Netmask address and Gateway address for the server SP or CMM.
Note. When DHCP is set, Oracle ILOM uses the default Auto DNS property to assign the DNS named server and search path. For dual-stack DHCP configurations, the DNS settings in Oracle ILOM can be set to receive DNS information from either the IPv4 or the IPv6 DHCP server.
CLI Syntax for IPv4 IP Discovery Mode:
set /SP|CMM/network pendingipdiscovery=dhcp|static
set /SP|CMM/network commitpending=true
Related Information:
IPv4
DHCP Client ID (dhcp_clientid=)
None
None|SysID
The property for the DHCP Client ID is set to None by default. Optionally, network administrators can set a SysID (System Identifier) for the DHCP Client using the system_identifier property under the /SP target.
CLI Syntax for IPv4 DHCP Client ID:
show /SP|CMM/network dhcp_clientid=none|sysid
Related Information:

ipaddress=|ipnetmask=|ipgateway=

Note -  IP addresses in the following subnets are reserved and cannot be assigned: 169.254.10.n, 169.254.11.n, 169.254.12.n

The IP4 user-configurable address properties for Network, Netmask, and Gateway are disabled in Oracle ILOM by default.
Optionally, network administrators can set a Static value for the IP Discovery Mode property and manually populate the static IPv4 addresses for Network, Netmask and Gateway.
CLI Syntax for IPv4 Static Addresses:
set /SP|CMM/network pendingipaddress=value pendingipnetmask=value pendingipgateway=value
set /SP|CMM/network commitpending=true
Related Information:
IPv6
State (/ipv6/ state=)
Enabled
Enabled |Disabled
The IPv6 State property is enabled in Oracle ILOM by default. Optionally, network administrators can disable the IPv6 network state for any network environment that is not dependent on a dual-stack IP network connection.
Note – The IPv6 state must be enabled in Oracle ILOM to support a dual-stack IP network connection.
ICLI Syntax for IPv6 State:
set /SP|CMM/network/ipv6 state=enabled|disabled
IPv6 Autoconfig
(/ipv6 autoconfig=)
Stateless
disabled|stateless
The IPv6 Autoconfig property is set to Stateless in Oracle ILOM by default. When the Autoconfig Stateless property is enabled, Oracle ILOM learns its IPv6 dynamic address prefixes from the IPv6 router.
When the IPv6 Autoconfig Stateless property is set to Disabled, the ability for IPv6 Autoconfig is disabled.
Special Considerations:
  • The IPv6 Autoconfig Stateless options determine the IP address without any IP support from a DHCPv6 server.

  • The IPv6 Autoconfig Stateless property can be enabled in Oracle ILOM regardless of how the property for DHCPv6 Autoconfig is set.

CLI Syntax for IPv6 Autoconfig:
set /SP|CMM/network/ipv6 autoconfig=stateless|disabled
DHCPv6 Autoconfig (/ipv6 autoconfig=)
(none)
DHCPv6_Stateless |DHCP_Stateful
The DHCPv6 Autoconfig property is disabled in Oracle ILOM by default. When this property is disabled, Oracle ILOM is prevented from learning the SP or CMM network addresses and DNS information from a DHCPv6 server on the network.
Optionally, network administrators can choose to enable the DHCPv6 Autoconfig property by setting one of the following property values:
  • DHCPv6 Stateless – When enabled, Oracle ILOM automatically learns the DNS information for the server SP (or CMM) from the DHCPv6 network router.

  • DHCPv6 Stateful – When enabled, Oracle ILOM automatically learns the dynamic IPv6 addresses and the DNS information for the server SP (or CMM) from the DHCPv6 network router.

Special Considerations:
  • For dual-stack DHCP configurations, the DNS settings in Oracle ILOM can be set to receive DNS information from either the IPv4 or the IPv6 DHCP server.

  • The unique ID for the DHCPv6 server that was last used by Oracle ILOM to retrieve the DHCPv6 network information is identified by the dhcpv6_server_duid property.

CLI Syntax for DHCPv6 Autoconfig:
set /SP|CMM/network/ipv6 autoconfig=dhcpv6_stateless|dhcpv6_stateful
Link-Local IPv6 Address
(/ipv6 link_local_ipaddress=)
Read-only
The read-only property for Link-Local IPv6 Address is a non-routable address that you can use to connect to the Oracle ILOM SP (or the CMM) from another IPv6-enabled node on the same network.
Oracle ILOM applies the following principles to build the Link-Local Address for the SP or CMM:
  • Oracle ILOM uses the SP or CMM MAC address in conjunction with the link-local identifier prefix.

  • Oracle ILOM, at initialization, uses the Duplicate Address Detection (DAD) protocol to ensure that the reported Local-Link address for the SP (or CMM) is unique.

CLI Syntax for Link-Local Address:
show /SP|CMM/network/ipv6
IPv6
Static IP Address
(/ipv6 static_ipaddress=)
None
When the IPv6 state is enabled, network administrators can optionally assign a static IPv6 address to the SP or CMM.

Note -  IP addresses in the following subnets are reserved and cannot be assigned: 169.254.10.n, 169.254.11.n, 169.254.12.n

The parameters for specifying the IPv6 static IP and netmask are: IPv6_address/ subnet_mask_length_in_bits. The gateway address, is automatically configured.
Example: fec0:a:8:b7:214:4fff:feca:5f7e/64
CLI Syntax for Static IPv6 Address:
set /SP|CMM/network/ipv6 pending_static_ipaddress=ipaddress/subnetmask
set /SP|CMM/network commitpending=true
IPv6 Gateway (/ipv6 ipgateway=)
Read-only
The read-only IPv6 gateway address presented in this property is learned from an IPv6 router on the network.
CLI Syntax for IPv6 Gateway:
show/ SP|CMM/network/ipv6
Dynamic IPv6 Address (/ipv6 dynamic_ipaddress_n)
Read-only
Oracle ILOM reports dynamic IPv6 addresses when the following occurs:
  • Both or one of the properties for Autoconfig Stateless and Autoconf DHCPv6_Stateful are enabled in Oracle ILOM.

  • The IPv6 network router or the DHCPv6 server reports multiple dynamic network addresses for the server SP or the CMM.

Special Considerations:
  • Oracle ILOM stores up 10 dynamic addresses in an internal structure.

  • Oracle ILOM responds to all dynamic network addresses.

  • If only the Autoconfig DHCPv6_Stateless property is set, no dynamic network addresses are reported in the Oracle ILOM interfaces.

CLI Syntax for Dynamic IPv6 Address:
show /SP|CMM/network/ipv6
Save Button
(commitpending=true)
All pending network modifications
Web interface – All modification made within the Network Settings page must be Saved before they can take affect in Oracle ILOM.
CLI – All pending network modifications must be committed under the /network target.
Special Considerations:
  • The IPv4 pending modifications take affect after they are committed or saved.

  • Assigning a new static IPv4 address to a managed device will end all active Oracle ILOM sessions to the SP or CMM. To log back in to Oracle ILOM, open a new browser session and enter the newly assigned IPv 4 address.

  • The IPv6 pending modifications take affect after they are committed or saved. Changes to the autoconfig properties do not need to be committed in the CLI.

  • Newly learned auto-configuration IPv6 addresses will not affect any Oracle ILOM session currently connected to the managed device (SP or CMM).

CLI Syntax for IPv4 Commit Pending Modification:
set /SP|CMM/network state=enabled|disabled pendingipdiscovery=static|dhcp pendingipaddress=value pendingipgateway=value pendingipnetmask=value
set /SP|CMM/network commitpending=true
CLI Syntax for IPv6 Commit Pending Modifications:
