Oracle ILOM SP Interconnect Properties

The following table describes the SP Local Host Interconnect properties appearing in the Oracle ILOM CLI (target: /network/interconnect) and the Oracle ILOM web interface (ILOM Administration > Connectivity > Local Host Interconnect > Configure).

Table 2  Oracle ILOM SP Interconnect Properties  
Property
Default Value
Description
Host Managed
(hostmanaged=|)
Enabled (True)
Enabled (True) | Disabled (False)
Specify the option for configuring the USB Ethernet connection points:
  • Enabled |True (default) - To enable, select the Host Managed check box to instruct Oracle ILOM to auto-configure the link between the SP port and host-side port on the installed Ethernet-over-USB interface.

    Note -  Disabling the Host Managed property (hostmanaged=false) after an internal management connection is auto-configured by Oracle ILOM will automatically cause all the host applications running on the auto-configured internal management connection to fail.

  • Disabled | False - To disable, clear the Host Managed check box to instruct Oracle ILOM not to configure the link between the SP port and host port on the installed Ethernet-over-USB interface. When the Host Managed check box is set to False, advanced network administrators can optionally configure the Ethernet-over-USB connection manually.

Single SP CLI Syntax
set /SP/network/interconnect hostmanaged=true|false
CMM-Blade CLI Syntax
set /Servers/Blades/BL/network/interconnect hostmanaged=true|false
Multi-Domain SP CLI Syntax
set /Servers/PDomains/PDomain_n/SP/network/interconnect hostmanaged=true|false
State
(state=)
Disabled
Enabled | Disabled (default)
When the Host Managed property is set to False (check box is cleared), specify one of the following State modes:
  • Disabled (default) - Clear the State check box to disable the Local Host Interconnect (USB Ethernet link interface) feature in Oracle ILOM

  • Enabled - Select the State check box to enable the Local Host Interconnect (USB Ethernet link interface) feature in Oracle ILOM.

    Note -  If you choose to manually configure the Ethernet-over-USB connection points between the host OS and the Oracle ILOM SP, the value for this property must be set to enabled.

Single SP CLI Syntax
set /SP/network/interconnect state=enabled|disabled
CMM-Blade CLI Syntax
set /Servers/Blades/BL/network/interconnect state=enabled|disabled
Multi-Domain SP CLI Syntax
set /Servers/PDomains/PDomain_n/SP/network/interconnect state=enabled|disabled
IP Address
(pendingipaddress=)
169.254.182.7
When the Host Managed is set to False, you can optionally modify the non-routable IPv4 address for the service processor USB Ethernet connection.

Note -  By default, Oracle provides non-routable IPv4 addresses for each connection point (ILOM service processor and host OS). Do not change these addresses unless a conflict exists in your network environment with the provided non-routable IPv4 addresses.

Netmask Address
(pendingipnetmask=)
255.255.255.0
When the Host Managed check box is set to False, you can optionally modify the network mask

Note -  You typically will not need to change the preconfigured IPv4 Netmask (255.255.255.0) address, unless a conflict with this address exists in your network.

CLI Syntax
set pendingipaddress=specify_new_address set pendingipnetmask=specify_new_address
Allowed Services
(allowed_services=)
Fault-Transport, IPMI, SNMP
Fault-Transport, IPMI, SNMP (defaults) | HTTP, HTTPS, SSH

Note -  The Allowed Services property is available for configuration as of Oracle ILOM firmware version 3.2.6.

When the Host Managed is set to False, you can optionally modify the list of allowed communication services. Any combination of services is allowed.
Web - Allowed Services
To enable a single communication service, click the name of a communication service in the list. To enable multiple communication services, press the Ctrl key as you click the names of the communication services in the list. To disable one or more communication services, press the Ctrl key as you click the names of the highlighted (enabled) communication services in the list.
CLI Syntax - Allowed Services
Single SP CLI example:
set /SP/network/interconnect allowed_services=fault-transport, http, https, ipmi, snmp, ssh
Save
(commitpending=true|false)
Any modifications made to IP Address or Netmask Address for the Oracle ILOM SP Ethernet-over-USB connection point are considered pending until the changes are committed in the CLI or saved in the web interface.
CLI Syntax
set commitpending=true
Service Processor MAC Address (spmacaddress=)
Read-only
The read-only property for the Service Processor MAC Address displays the MAC address that is assigned to the Oracle ILOM SP.
Host MAC Address (hostmacaddress=)
Read-only
The read-only property for the Host MAC Address displays the MAC address that is assigned to the managed server and it also represents how most operating systems recognize the internal Ethernet-over-USB interface.
Connection Type
Read-only
This read-only Connection Type property indicates the connection type of the internal USB Ethernet.
CLI help command
For additional information about configurable or non-configurable properties appearing under the /network/interconnect CLI target, you can type the help command followed by the property name.
Syntax: help /SP|CMM/network/interconnect property_name
Example: help /SP/network/interconnect hostmanaged
