Using Backup, Restore, and Reset Default Operations

System administrators can use the operations for Backup, Restore, and Reset Defaults in the following ways:

  1. Replicate the Oracle ILOM configuration for use on other systems.

    System administrators can replicate the Oracle ILOM configuration for use on other Oracle server SPs or CMMs by following these steps:

    1. Customize the Oracle ILOM configuration as needed

      For example, define user accounts, modify default network settings, set alert notifications, define system policies, and so on.

    2. Save the Oracle ILOM configuration to a backup XML file.

    3. Edit the backup XML file to remove settings that are unique to a particular system (such as IP address).

    4. Perform a restore operation to replicate the configuration onto the other Oracle server SPs or CMMs.

  2. Recover a working Oracle ILOM configuration when the existing Oracle ILOM configuration is no longer working.

    If modifications were made to the Oracle ILOM configuration since the last backup operation and the current Oracle ILOM configuration is no longer working, system administrators can recover the working backup configuration by following these steps:

    1. Reset the Oracle ILOM configuration to defaults.

    2. Restore the Oracle ILOM configuration to the last known working configuration.
