Power on the Server for the First Time

  1. At the terminal device, log in to the SP as root with a password of changeme.
    XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX login: root
    Password: changeme (nothing
    . . .

    After a brief delay, the Oracle ILOM prompt is displayed (->).

    Note -  To enable first-time login and access to Oracle ILOM, a default Administrator account and its password are provided with the system. To build a secure environment, you must change the default password (changeme) for the default Administrator account (root) after your initial login to Oracle ILOM. If this default Administrator account has been changed, contact your system administrator for an Oracle ILOM user account with Administrator privileges.

    For more information about the administration tasks such as changing passwords, adding accounts, and setting account privileges, refer to the Oracle ILOM documentation.

    Note -  By default, the SP is configured to use DHCP to obtain an IP address. If you plan to assign a static IP address to the SP, seeAssign a Static IP Address to the NET MGT Port for more instructions.
  2. Power on the server using one of the following methods.
    • Press the power button.
    • At the Oracle ILOM prompt, type:
    -> start /System
    Are you sure you want to start /System (y/n)? y

    The server initialization might take several minutes to complete.

    To cancel the initialization, press the #. (Hash+Dot) keys to return to the Oracle ILOM prompt. Then type: stop /System

    Note -  In Oracle ILOM 3.1, the name space for /SYS was replaced with /System. You can use the legacy name in a command at any time, but to expose the legacy name in the output, you must enable it with -> set /SP/cli legacy_targets=enabled. For more information, see the Oracle ILOM 3.1 documentation.
  3. (Optional) Redirect the host output to display on the serial terminal device.
    -> start /HOST/console
    Are you sure you want to start /SP/console (y/n)? y
    Serial console started. 
    . . .
  4. (Optional) You can execute other Oracle ILOM commands while the server initializes.
    1. To display the Oracle ILOM prompt, press the #. (Hash+Dot) keys.
    2. To see information about available Oracle ILOM commands, type: help

      To see information about a specific command, type help command-name

    3. To return to displaying host output from the server initialization, type:
      -> start /HOST/console
  5. Continue with the installation by installing the OS.
