Optionally Edit the Oracle ILOM Backup XML Configuration File

Advanced users can use the backup XML file to provision other Oracle server SPs or CMMs on the network with the same Oracle ILOM configuration. Prior to using a backup XML file on another system, system administrators should edit the file to remove any information that is unique to a particular system (for example, IP address).

Example XML File:

The following is an example of a backed-up XML file. The content of the file is abbreviated for this procedure.

<SP_config version="3.0">
<entry>
<entry>
<property>/SP/clock/datetime</property>
<value>Mon May 12 15:31:09 2010</value>
</entry>
. . .
<property>/SP/check_physical_presence</property>
<entry>
<property>/SP/config/passphrase</property>
<value encrypted="true">89541176be7c</value>
</entry>
. . .
<value>false</value>
<entry>
<property>/SP/network/pendingipaddress</property>
<value>1.2.3.4</value>
</entry>
. . .
</entry>
<entry>
<property>/SP/network/commitpending</property>
<value>true</value>
</entry>
. . .
<entry>
<entry>
<property>/SP/services/snmp/sets</property>
<value>enabled</value>
</entry>

<property>/SP/hostname</property>
<entry>
<property>/SP/users/john/role</property>
<value>aucro</value>
</entry>
<entry>
<property>/SP/users/john/password</property>
<value encrypted="true">c21f5a3df51db69fdf</value>
</entry>
</SP_config>
<value>labysystem12</value>
</entry>
<entry>
<property>/SP/system_identifier</property>
<value>SUN BLADE X8400 SERVER MODULE, ILOM v3.0.0.0, r32722</value>
</entry>

  1. Consider the following in the example XML file:
    • The configuration settings, with exception of the password and the passphrase, are in clear text (unencrypted).

    • The check_physical_presence property, which is the first configuration entry in the file, is set to false. The default setting is true so this setting represents a change to the default Oracle ILOM configuration.

    • The configuration settings for pendingipaddress and commitpending are unique to each server. These settings should be deleted before using the backup XML file for a Restore operation on a different server.

    • The user account john is configured with the a, u, c, r, o roles. The default Oracle ILOM configuration does not have any configured user accounts so this account represents a change to the default Oracle ILOM configuration.

    • The SNMP sets property is set to enabled. The default setting is disabled.

  2. To modify the configuration settings that are in clear text, change the values or add new configuration settings.

    For example:

    • To change the roles assigned to the user john, change the text as follows:
      <entry>
      <property>/SP/users/john/role</property>
      <value>auo</value>
      </entry>
      
    • To add a new user account and assign that account the a, u, c, r, o roles, add the following text directly below the entry for user john:
      <entry>
      <property>/SP/users/bill/role</property>
      <value>aucro</value>
      </entry>
      
    • To change a password, delete the encrypted=”true” setting and the encrypted password string and type in the new password. For example, to change the password for the user john, modify the XML file as follows:

      Change:

      <entry>
      <property>/SP/users/john/password</property>
      <value encrypted="true">c21f5a3df51db69fdf</value>
      </entry>
      

      To:

      <entry>
      <property>/SP/users/john/password</property>
      <value>newpassword</value>
      </entry>
      
  3. After you have made the changes to the backup XML file, save the file so that you can use it for a Restore operation on the same system or a different system.
