Change the Host Boot Mode Behavior at Reset

The bootmode state property controls how OpenBoot NVRAM variables are used. Normally, the current settings of these variables are retained. Setting bootmode state=reset_nvram changes the OpenBoot NVRAM variables to their default settings at the next reset.

This task uses PDomain_0 as an example. You must have the reset role (r) to complete this task.

  1. Log in to Oracle ILOM.

    See Log In to Oracle ILOM (CLI).

  2. Set the bootmode state.
    -> set /Servers/PDomains/PDomain_0/HOST/bootmode state=value

    where value is one of the following:

    • normal – At next reset, retains current NVRAM variable settings.

    • reset_nvram – At next reset, returns OpenBoot variables to default settings.

    Note -  The state=reset_nvram property returns to normal after the next host reset or 10 minutes. The config and script properties do not expire. Those two properties are cleared when the server resets or when you clear them manually by setting value to "" ("" indicates an empty script).
