Log In to Oracle ILOM Using a Remote Ethernet Connection

You can log in to the Oracle ILOM web interface or CLI remotely using one of the network ports on the server.

You need to know the IP address or host name of the service processor (SP) to log in to Oracle ILOM remotely. If you do not know the IP address of the SP, see Troubleshooting Oracle ILOM.

Note -  To enable first time login and access to Oracle ILOM, a default Administrator account and its password are provided with the system. To build a secure environment, change the default password (changeme) for the default Administrator account (root) after your initial login.

If this default Administrator account has since been changed, contact your system administrator for an Oracle ILOM user account with Administrator privileges.

For information about how to change the root password, refer to the Oracle Integrated Light Out Manager (ILOM) Documentation library at: http://www.oracle.com/goto/ilom/docs

To improve response times, disable the web browser proxy server (if one is enabled).

  1. Ensure that the server is cabled for a remote network management connection to Oracle ILOM.

    For instructions on establishing a physical management connection to Oracle ILOM see Connecting Cables and Applying Power.

  2. Establish a connection to Oracle ILOM using the web interface or the CLI.
    • From the web interface:
      1. Type the IP address of the server in the address field of your web browser and press Enter.
      2. On the Oracle ILOM login screen, type your user name and password, and click Log In.

      The Summary Information page appears, indicating that you successfully logged in to Oracle ILOM.

    • From the CLI:
      1. Initiate a secure shell session. Type:

        ssh username@host

        Where username is the user name of an Oracle ILOM account with Administrator privileges, and host is either the IP address or hostname (when using DNS) of the server SP.

        The Oracle ILOM password prompt appears.


      2. At the Oracle ILOM password prompt, type your password and press Enter. For example:

        Password: changeme

        Oracle ILOM displays the default command prompt ->, indicating that you successfully logged in to Oracle ILOM.
