View the BIOS Configuration Sync Status and Sync the Configuration Parameters

Before You Begin

Follow these steps to view the BIOS Configuration Sync Status and, if necessary, to sync the BIOS configuration parameters in the host non-volatile data store with the parameters in the Oracle ILOM BIOS Configuration file.

  1. To view the state of the parameters currently in the Oracle ILOM BIOS Configuration file, perform one of the following:
    • For the web interface, click System Management > BIOS

    • For the CLI, type: show /System/BIOS/Config

    An OK state indicates that the parameters in the Oracle ILOM BIOS Configuration file are in-sync with the BIOS non-volatile data store.

    A Reboot_Required state indicates that the Oracle ILOM BIOS Configuration file is out-of-sync with the BIOS non-volatile data store.

    An Internal_Error state indicates that Oracle ILOM is unable to read the BIOS non-volatile data store. This internal error prevents the BIOS Configuration Backup and Restore operations from being initiated in Oracle ILOM. For further assistance, contact Oracle Service.

  2. To sync the parameters in the BIOS non-volatile data store with the Oracle ILOM BIOS Configuration file, perform one of the following actions to power-cycle the managed Oracle x86 server.
    • From the web interface, click Host Management > Power Control > Power Cycle.

    • From the CLI, type: reset /System

    Oracle ILOM retrieves the parameters set in the BIOS non-volatile data store, saves them to the Oracle ILOM BIOS Configuration file, and updates the state for the Configuration Sync Status.
