Secure System Access With Login Banner (3.0.8 and later)

As of firmware release 3.0.8 , Oracle ILOM enables system administrators to display a banner message to all users upon logging in to the Oracle ILOM CLI and web interface. The use of a login banner can help protect against unauthorized system access by remote devices, as well as advise authorized and legitimate users of their obligations relating to acceptable use of the system.

The banner message you implement should be written in accordance with your information security policy. For further guidelines about the written message, consult your site administrator or security officer.

To display a banner message to all users at login or post login, see the following web-based instructions.

Before You Begin

  • The Admin (a) role is required to create a banner message.

  • The banner message is available for configuration as of Oracle ILOM firmware release 3.0.8 and later.

  • Administrators can configure the banner message to display on the Login page, or in a dialog that appears immediately after the user logs in to Oracle ILOM.

  1. Navigate to the Banner Message page in the Oracle ILOM web interface.

    For instance, in the:

    • 3.0.x web interface, click System Information -> Banner Messages.

  2. In the Banner Message page, click the More Details... link to determine how to configure a banner message.
