Auto-Configure a Dedicated Interconnect Management Connection

Before You Begin:

  • The Ethernet-over-USB interface must be enabled by the installed operating system.

  • The Admin (a) role is required to configure the Local Host Interconnect feature.

Follow these steps to auto-configure a dedicated interconnect management connection using the Oracle ILOM CLI or web interface.

Note -  Alternatively, you can set the auto-configure Ethernet-over USB connection point addresses by using the ilomconfig tool. For more details, see the Manually Configure the Local Interconnect.
  1. Ensure that the Ethernet-over-USB interface is enabled by the installed operating system or by the installation of the Oracle Hardware Management Pack software version 2.1.0 or later.
  2. To navigate to the Local Host Interconnect properties, perform one of the following:
    • Web: Click Connectivity > Network then click the Local Host Interconnect link at top of page.

      • If a Configure link appears, click the Configure link.

      • If a Host Interconnect Node table appears, select a Host then click Edit.

      The Local Host Interconnect Parameters dialog appears.

    • CLI: Type: cd /SP/network/interconnect

  3. Ensure that the Host Managed property is set to True.

    Note -  Disabling the Host Managed property (hostmanaged=false) after an internal management connection is auto-configured by Oracle ILOM will cause all host applications running on the auto-configured internal management connection to fail.

    For further configuration details, see Oracle ILOM SP Interconnect Properties.
