Recover the Root Account Password

System administrators can recover the preconfigured Oracle ILOM local root account or the password for the local root account by using the preconfigured Oracle ILOM default password.

To recover the root account password you need a local serial management port (SER MGT) connection to Oracle ILOM. In addition, if the Physical Presence State is enabled (the default) in Oracle ILOM, you must prove that you are physically present at the server.

To recover the root account password, perform these steps:

  1. Establish a local serial management connection to Oracle ILOM and log in to Oracle ILOM using the default user account.

    For example: host-name login: default

    Press and release the physical presence button

    Press return when this is completed...

  2. Prove physical presence at the server.

    To prove physical presence at the server, press the Locator button on the front of the server.

  3. Return to your serial console and press Enter.

    The Oracle ILOM password prompt appears.

  4. Type the password for the default user account: defaultpassword.
  5. Reset the account password or re-create the root account.

    For more information, refer to "Configuring Local User Accounts" in the Oracle ILOM Administrator's Guide for Configuration and Maintenance at https://www.oracle.com/goto/ilom/docs.
