Enhanced IP Connectivity Settings Available in Oracle ILOM

Oracle ILOM supports the ability to independently enable or disable the property States for IPv4 and IPv6 network connectivity. In addition, a new static IPv6 gateway property is available for configuration.

To access these enhanced network settings in Oracle ILOM, follow these steps:

  1. Log in to Oracle ILOM as an Administrator.

    For instructions on how to launch Oracle ILOM from the web interface or command-line interface (CLI), refer to the Oracle Server X6-2 Installation Guide.

  2. To modify the SP network settings, perform one of the following:
    • From the web interface:
      1. Click ILOM Administration → Connectivity → Network.
      2. Modify the settings on the Network Settings page as required.

        For further details about how to configure the properties on the Network Setting page, click the More Details link.

      3. Save the network property changes by clicking Save.

        Note -  All user sessions on the SP are terminated upon saving the IP network property changes. To log back in to Oracle ILOM, use the newly assigned service processor IP address.
    • From the CLI:
      1. To view the assigned IPv4 and IPv6 network settings on the SP, enter the following:

        For IPv4, type: show /SP/network

        For IPv6, type: show /SP/network/ipv6

      2. To view the descriptions of each IPv4 and IPv6 network property, enter the following:

        For IPv4, type: help /SP/network

        For IPv6, type: help /SP/network/ipv6

      3. To modify the IPv4 and IPv6 network properties on the SP, issue the set command.

        IPv4 Example:

        set /SP/network state=enabled|disabled

        pendingipdiscovery=static|dhcp

        pendingipaddress=value

        pendingipgateway=value

        pendingipnetmask=value

        IPv6 Example:

        set /SP/network/ipv6 state=enabled|disabled

        pending_static_ipaddress=value/subnet_mask_value

        pending_static_ipgatewayaddress=value


        Note -  A dual-stack network connection is enabled when both the IPv4 and IPv6 State properties are set to enabled. By default, Oracle ILOM arrives configured with network settings enabled for a dual stack (IPv4 and IPv6) network connection. If the IPv4 State property is enabled (SP/network state=enabled), and the IPv6 State property is disabled (SP/network state=disabled), Oracle ILOM supports an IPv4-only network connection.
      4. To commit the IPv4 and IPv6 pending network changes in Oracle ILOM, issue the following commands:

        For IPv4, type: set /SP/network commitpending=true

        For IPv6, type: set /SP/network/ipv6 commitpending=true


      Note -  All user sessions on the SP are terminated upon committing the IP network property changes. To log back in to Oracle ILOM, use the newly assigned service processor IP address.
