Restore BIOS Configuration

Before You Begin

  • Review the Requirements for BIOS Configuration Tasks.

  • The data in the boot device section of the Oracle ILOM Configuration file is read-only and does not affect the parameters restored to the BIOS non-volatile data store.

  • The BIOS Configuration Restore operation typically takes two to three minutes to complete.

Follow this procedure to restore the parameters in the Oracle ILOM BIOS Configuration file to the BIOS non-volatile data store.

  1. To restore the BIOS configuration, perform one of the following:
    • From the web interface, click System Management > BIOS, select a Restore Option, select a Transfer Method option, then specify the required parameters for the Transfer Method, and click Start Restore.

    • From the CLI, type:

      set load_uri=restore_option/transfer_method://username:password@ipaddress_ or_hostname/directorypath/filename

      Where:

      • restore option appears, type either: all, config-only, or bootlist-only

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

      • username appears, type the user account name for the chosen transfer method server. A user name is required for scp, sftp, and ftp. A user name 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 storage location for the Oracle ILOM Configuration file (/System/BIOS/Config) on the transfer method server.

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


      Note -  To cancel a pending restore BIOS configuration action, type: set action=cancel
  2. Wait while Oracle ILOM completes the Restore operation.

    Oracle ILOM exports the BIOS configuration parameters from the Oracle ILOM BIOS Configuration file to the BIOS non-volatile data store, and updates the state of the Restore Status.

  3. Verify the state of the Restore Status to determine whether the Restore operation succeeded.

    For a list of Restore Status state descriptions, see the Web and CLI: BIOS Properties.


    Note -  Restore operation results are logged in the Oracle ILOM event log (/SP/logs/event list).
