If you plan to connect to the SP through its NET MGT port, the SP must have a valid IP address.
By default, the server is configured to obtain an IP address from DHCP services in your network. If the network your server is connected to does not support DHCP for IP addressing, perform this procedure.
If you are not already connected through the SER MGT port, perform steps as needed in Connect Cables.
->set /SP/network pendingipdiscovery=static Set 'pendingipdiscovery' to 'static'
->set /SP/network pendingipaddress=service-processor-IPaddr Set 'pendingipaddress' to 'service-processor-IPaddr'
To change the default IPv6 DHCP property and set property values for a static IPv6 address, refer to the section Modifying Default Connectivity Configuration Properties in the Oracle ILOM Administrator's Guide for Configuration and Maintenance.
-> set /SP/network pendingipgateway=gateway-IPaddr Set 'pendingipgateway' to 'gateway-IPaddr'
-> set /SP/network pendingipnetmask=255.255.255.0 Set 'pendingipnetmask' to '255.255.255.0'
This example uses 255.255.255.0 to set the netmask. Your network environment subnet might require a different netmask. Use a netmask number most appropriate to your environment.
This example shows parameters that have been set to convert a SP from a DHCP configuration to a static configuration.
