Perform a Default Boot

This procedure assumes that the virtual machine's boot configuration variables (see Boot Sequence) are set to boot from an established boot device.

Based on the values of the configuration variables, the boot process can proceed in a number of different ways. For example:

  • If auto-boot? is true (the default), the virtual machine will automatically boot from the specified boot device. Note – The Oracle ILOM auto-boot property must also be set to enabled.

  • If auto-boot? is false, automatic booting does not occur, the ok prompt is displayed, and you can run OpenBoot commands such as boot.

  1. Access the OpenBoot CLI.

    See Accessing the OpenBoot CLI and Getting Help.

  2. Type:
    {0} ok boot
