Introduction to the Oracle Hardware Management Pack

This section provides an overview of the Oracle Hardware Management Pack components and how to use them with your Oracle servers. Starting with Oracle Solaris OS 11.2, Oracle Hardware Management Pack is included as part of the operating system installation. For details on which Oracle Hardware Management Pack components are installed per Oracle Solaris OS installation, see Available Hardware Management Pack Components.

Oracle Hardware Management Pack (Hardware Management Pack) provides tools to help you manage and configure your Oracle servers. Hardware Management Pack consists of components that you install on your servers. These components enable you to:

  • Use a management agent at the operating system level to enable in-band monitoring of your Oracle hardware over Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP). You can use this information to integrate your Oracle servers into your data center management infrastructure.

  • Use command-line tools to:

    • Configure BIOS, UEFI BIOS, RAID volumes and Oracle Integrated Lights Out Manager (ILOM) service processors on your servers.

    • Upgrade your server components' firmware.

    • View hardware configuration information and the status of your Oracle servers.

    • Configure an ILOM trap proxy that forwards SNMP traps from your Oracle ILOM service processor over the Host-to-ILOM Interconnect.

  • Use IPMItool to access server service processors using the IPMI protocol and perform management tasks.
