Back Up the BIOS Configuration

Before You Begin

Follow this procedure to back up the parameters from BIOS non-volatile data store to the Oracle ILOM BIOS Configuration file.

  1. To back up the BIOS configuration, perform one of the following:
    • From the web interface, click System Management > BIOS, in the Backup section select an option from the Transfer Method list box, then specify the required parameters for the Transfer Method, and click Start Backup.

    • From the CLI, type:

      set dump_uri transfer_method://username:password@ipaddress_or_hostname/ directorypath/filename

      Where:

      • transfer_method appears, type either: tftp, ftp, sftp, scp, http, or https

      • username appears, type the name of the user account for the chosen transfer method server. A username is required for scp, sftp, and ftp. A username is not required for tftp, and it is optional for http and https.

      • password appears, type the user account password for the chosen transfer method server. A password is required for scp, sftp, and ftp. A password is not used for tftp, and it is optional for http and https.

      • ipaddress_or_hostname appears, type the IP address or the host name for the chosen transfer method server.

      • directorypath appears, type the file storage location on the transfer method server.

      • filename appears, type the name assigned to the Backup Configuration file, for example: foo.xml.

  2. Wait while Oracle ILOM completes the BIOS Backup operation.

    Oracle ILOM retrieves a copy of the BIOS non-volatile data store configuration file and saves it to the Oracle ILOM file system.
