Connect to Oracle ILOM

Establish a physical management connection to Oracle ILOM by performing one of the following procedures:

  • Local serial management connection – Procedure 1

  • Network management connection – Procedure 2

Note -  To maintain the most reliable and secure environment for Oracle ILOM, the local serial port, or the dedicated network management port, or the standard data network port on the server or CMM must always be connected to an internal trusted network or dedicated secure management and private network.
  1. Local Serial Management Connection Procedure
    1. Attach a serial cable between a console (workstation or terminal) and the SER MGT port on the server or the Oracle blade chassis monitoring module (CMM).

      This physical connection provides your initial communication with the service processor (SP). You must set the terminal device communication properties to these values: 9600 baud, 8 bit, no parity, 1 stop bit.

      Note -  If the transmit and receive signals are reversed (crossed over) for DTE to DTE communications, a null modem configuration is required. Use the adapter cable that is supplied with your system to achieve a null modem configuration.

      Note -  For further information about the physical location of the SER MGT port on the Oracle Server, see the Oracle documentation provided for your server. For instance, for SPARC T5-2 servers, see additional serial management port details at: http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E28853_01/html/E28854/pftig.z40022311288258.html#scrolltoc.
    2. To create a connection between the terminal device and the Oracle ILOM SP or CMM, press Enter on the terminal device.
  2. Network Management Connection Procedure
    1. Attach an Ethernet cable between the network switch and the NET MGT port on the server or CMM.

      Oracle ILOM automatically learns the network address of the server SP or the CMM from both the IPv4 DHCP server and the IPv6 router on your network. If you need to modify these network settings, see Modify Default Network Connectivity Settings.

    2. Determine the IP address assigned to the server SP or the CMM.

      To determine the IP address assigned, establish a local serial management (SER MGT) connection to the ILOM SP or CMM, log in to ILOM, and then view the network properties under the /network and /networkipv6 targets using the show command.

      It is also possible to determine the IP address from the DHCP server on your network.
