Setup and management of service processor (SP) which runs Oracle ILOM.
The SP must be accessed through its serial port when the server is initially powered on to see the console output. You can then assign an IP address and set related network properties for the SP so you can access Oracle ILOM on the SP through the network.
Become familiar with security practices for Oracle ILOM and the server.
The server does not include integrated storage devices like drives or disk arrays. Each server PDomain must have access to a bootable storage device so that it can run the Oracle Solaris OS, run applications, and store data.
After you power on a server PDomain for the first time, you can set the boot device for the PDomain. Procedures are different for different types of storage devices.
A number of boot characteristics are controlled by configuration variables that are stored in nonvolatile memory. If needed, you can change the configuration variables default values to tailor operating characteristics to your environment.
You should in particular consider setting variables that increase security.
