Modify Network Settings

When you use Oracle ILOM to deploy or manage the server, you can optionally modify the default network settings provided for the service processor (SP).

This procedure provides web interface and CLI instructions for viewing and modifying the network settings that are assigned to the SP.

  1. Log in to Oracle ILOM as an Administrator from the web interface or CLI. For details, seeAccessing Oracle ILOM.
  2. To modify the SP network settings, use either the Oracle ILOM web interface or CLI:
    • From the web interface:
      1. Click ILOM Administration → Connectivity → Network.
      2. Modify the settings on the Network Settings page, as required. For details, click the More Details link.
      3. Click 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, perform the following:

        For IPv4, type: show /SP/network

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

      2. To view the descriptions about each IPv4 and IPv6 network property, perform 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 is factory-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, type:

        set /SP/network 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.
