Access the OpenBoot CLI (Powered Off)

Use this procedure when the host status is Powered Off.

This procedure assumes that you performed Identify a Method to Get to the OpenBoot CLI, and you are still logged into Oracle ILOM.

Note -  The Oracle ILOM CLI examples in this section are for a single PDomain system. For multiple domain systems, replace /HOST with /HOSTx, where x is the PDomain number.
  1. Temporarily change the auto-boot? parameter to false.

    For example:

    -> set /HOST/bootmode script=”setenv auto-boot? false”

    This command temporarily prevents the OS from booting before you reach the OpenBoot prompt. This change applies only to a single start, and expires in 10 minutes if the power is not started.

  2. Start the virtual machine.
    • Example of starting a VM with a single PDomain:

      -> start /System
    • Example of starting a VM with multiple PDomains:

      -> start /HOSTx

      Where x is the PDomain number.

  3. If you are prompted to login, select login and enter the OpenBoot password.

    The ok prompt is displayed indicating that you are accessing the OpenBoot CLI.
