To establish a dedicated LAN management connection between the host OS and the Oracle ILOM SP, you must choose to implement one of the following configuration methods:
Auto-Configuration (default) — The configuration of the local interconnect management connection is automated when: 1) the Host Managed check box in the Oracle ILOM web interface is enabled (or hostmanaged property in the CLI is set to true (/SP/network/interconnect hostmanaged=true)); and, 2) the Ethernet-over-USB interface is enabled by one of the following software products:
Oracle Solaris version 11.x or later. Typically, the option for Ethernet-over-USB is enabled at first OS boot.
MS Windows or a Linux-based operating system that supports the use of an internal Ethernet-over-USB device.
Oracle Hardware Management Pack version 2.1.0 or later.
Manual-configuration — If you are an advanced network administrator and prefer not to have Oracle ILOM auto-configure the Ethernet-over-USB connection points, you can manually configure the local host connection point addresses by using the ilomconfig tool .
For manual configuration details, see Manually Configure the Local Interconnect.
