Host OS Interconnect Guidelines for Manual Configuration

The following table provides general guidelines for configuring local network parameters for the host OS internal USB Ethernet connection point.


Note - The internal USB Ethernet installed on the managed server is presented in the system as a traditional ethernet interface. When manually configuring the local interconnect point for the host OS, it might be necessary to use the host MAC address (hostmacaddress=) to determine the name assigned to the host OS local interconnect point.

MS Windows or Linux-based operating system
  1. Ensure that the internal Ethernet-over-USB device is automatically discovered by operating system.

  2. Install the ilomconfig tool. This tool is included in the Oracle Hardware Management Pack software distribution.

    Note -  As an alternative to using the ilomconfig tool, you can use OS networking commands to configure the internal Ethernet-over-USB connection point addresses.

  3. In the ilomconfig tool, do one of the following:

    • Manually set the connection point addresses for the internal Ethernet-over-USB interface:

      ilomconfig enable interconnect --spipaddress=x.x.x.x --netmask=x.x.x.x --hostipaddress=x.x.x.x

      -or-

    • Manually set the default connection point addresses for the internal Ethernet-over-USB interface:

      ilomconfig enable interconnect

Solaris
  1. Ensure that the internal Ethernet-over-USB device is automatically discovered by Oracle Solaris.

  2. In the ilomconfig tool, do one of the following:

    Note -  The ilomconfig tool is part of Oracle Solaris, no installation is required.

    • Manually set the connection point addresses for the internal Ethernet-over-USB interface:

      ilomconfig enable interconnect --spipaddress=x.x.x.x --netmask=x.x.x.x --hostipaddress=x.x.x.x

      -or-

    • Manually set the default connection point addresses for the internal Ethernet-over-USB interface:

      ilomconfig enable interconnect
