Host-to-ILOM Interconnect

With Oracle ILOM 3.0.12 and later, a Host-to-ILOM Interconnect communication channel is available to enable you to communicate locally with Oracle ILOM from the host operating system (OS) without the use of a network management connection (NET MGT) to the server.

Note -  The Oracle Hardware Management Pack refers to this feature as Host-to-ILOM Interconnect. The Oracle ILOM interface refers to this feature as Local Host Interconnect.

The Host-to-ILOM Interconnect is available on the latest Oracle servers and the can provide a more reliable and potentially faster data transfer rate for Oracle Hardware Management Pack CLI tools than traditional KCS interfaces.

Accessing the service processor using the Host-to-ILOM Interconnect requires that you either provide credentials manually or set up a host credentials cache using ilomconfig. For more information, see Providing Host Credentials to the Service Processor.

The Host-to-ILOM Interconnect is enabled by default in Oracle Solaris 11.2 and later.
