Prevent Unauthorized Access (Oracle ILOM)

  1. Use Oracle ILOM commands to restrict access to the Oracle ILOM software, change the factory-set password, limit the use of the root superuser account, and secure the private network to the service processor.

  2. When possible, use the platform-specific Oracle ILOM commands to secure individual domains by creating user accounts with roles that apply to a specific physical domain.

    When you assign user roles to a physical domain, the capabilities for that domain mirror those of the user roles assigned for the platform, but they are restricted to the commands executed on the given component.

    Note -  Only user roles of administrator (a), console (c), and reset (r) can be assigned for individual physical domains.
