Resolving Connectivity Issues

If you are experiencing difficulties establishing a network connection to Oracle ILOM interfaces, refer to the following IPv4 and IPv6 information for suggested resolutions.

Table 51  Troubleshooting IPv4 Connectivity Issues
Problem
Suggested Resolution
Unable to access Oracle ILOM using IPv4 from a network client.
Ensure that the setting for State is enabled on the Network Settings page in the Oracle ILOM web interface or under the /SP/network target in the Oracle ILOM CLI. Other suggestions for diagnosing IPv4 network issues, include the following:
  • Verify that a LAN connection to the physical management port (NET MGT) is established.

  • Verify that the appropriate network service, in Oracle ILOM, is enabled: SSH, HTTP, or HTTPS. In the web interface, click ILOM Administration > Connectivity to verify and change network connectivity settings.

  • Use an industry-standard network diagnostic tool like IPv4 Ping or Traceroute to test the network connection to the managed device.

    Run ping from the web or the CLI. Or, run traceroute from the service Oracle ILOM restricted shell.

Table 52  Troubleshooting IPv6 Connectivity Issues
Problem
Suggested Resolution
Unable to access the Oracle ILOM web interface using an IPv6 address.
Ensure that the IPv6 address in the URL is enclosed by brackets, for example: https://[2001:db8:0:0:0:0:0:0]
Unable to download a file using an IPv6 address.
Ensure that the IPv6 address in the URL is enclosed by brackets, for example:
load -source tftp://[2001:db8:0:0:0:0:0:0]/desktop.pkg
Unable to access Oracle ILOM using IPv6 from a network client.
If on a separate subnet, try the following:
  • Verify that Oracle ILOM has a dynamic or static address (not just a Link-Local address).

  • Verify that the network client has an IPv6 address configured (not just a Link-Local address).

If on the same or a separate subnet, try the following:
  • Ensure that the property for IPv6 State is enabled on the Network Settings page in the Oracle ILOM web interface or under the /SP/network/ipv6 target in the Oracle ILOM CLI.

  • Verify that the appropriate network service, in Oracle ILOM, is enabled: SSH, HTTP, or HTTPS.

    In the web interface, click ILOM Administration > Connectivity to verify and change network connectivity settings.

  • Use an industry-standard network diagnostic tool like IPv6 Ping or Traceroute to test the network connection to the managed device.

    Run ping6 from the web or CLI. Or, run traceroute from the service Oracle ILOM restricted shell.
