Manually Configure the Local
Note - Alternatively, you can use the Oracle Hardware
Management Pack 2.1.0 software or later to auto-configure the Local
Interconnect connection points on a managed server. For local interconnect
auto-configuration instructions, see the Oracle Hardware
Management Pack User's Guide.
Before You Begin:
This manual procedure for configuring a local interconnect
between the SP and host OS should be performed only by advanced
This manual procedure provides guidelines for configuring
the host OS internal connection point and detailed steps for optionally
configuring the Oracle ILOM SP internal connection point.
An established network or local serial management
connection is required to the Oracle ILOM SP prior to modifying
the default SP Local Host Interconnect properties in Oracle ILOM.
Note - The Local Host Interconnect property in Oracle ILOM
is not available for a CMM. However, you can use the Oracle ILOM
CMM CLI or web interface to navigate to and configure the SP Local
Host Interconnect properties for any blade server installed in the
The preconfigured Oracle ILOM root account
or a customer-configured user account with Admin (a)
role privileges is required to modify the SP Local Host Interconnect
properties in Oracle ILOM.
Prior to performing this procedure, verify that an interconnect
management connection between the SP and host OS was not
automatically configured by Oracle ILOM. In the case an interconnect
management connection was auto-configured by Oracle ILOM, disabling
the host managed property (hostmanaged=false)
using the procedure below will cause the local host applications
running on the auto-configured interconnect management connection to
Follow these steps to manually configure the internal Ethernet
USB connection points between the host OS and the Oracle ILOM SP:
manually configure the internal Ethernet USB connection parameters
for the host operating system, do the following:
- Ensure that the OS specific Ethernet
device driver was installed by the OS software distribution on the
If an OS specific Ethernet device driver was not provided
during the operating system installation, you can obtain the device
driver for the internal Ethernet-over-USB interface from the Oracle
Hardware Management Pack 2.1.0 or later software distribution. For
more information about how to extract this file from the Oracle
Hardware Management Pack software distribution, refer to the Oracle Hardware Management Pack User's Guide.
- Confirm that the host operating system on the managed server recognizes the internal
Ethernet-over-USB interface, and then manually assign network
parameters to the host OS connection point.
For guidelines, see Host OS Interconnect Guidelines for Manual Configuration.
- To manually modify the Local
Host Interconnect properties for the Oracle ILOM SP, follow these
- Review Oracle ILOM SP Interconnect Properties.
- Log in to Oracle ILOM using a
web browser or a CLI shell.
For log in instructions see, Logging In to Oracle ILOM Server SP or CMM.
- To modify the SP Local Host Interconnect
properties in Oracle ILOM, perform the following steps for the applicable
Oracle ILOM interface.
In the Oracle ILOM SP web interface, click ILOM Administration > Connectivity > Network, and
then click the Local Host Interconnect link at the
top of the page.
In the Local Host Interconnect section of the Network page, do one of the following:
In the Local Host Interconnect Parameters dialog, clear the check box for Host Managed, enable
the check box for State, specify the allowed
communication services, and only if necessary,
modify the local non-routable IPv4 address or
netmask addresses provided for the SP, then click
For further configuration details, see the
Oracle ILOM SP Interconnect Properties.
Note. You do not need
to modify the preconfigured IP address or netmask address assigned
to the Oracle ILOM SP, unless a conflict with these parameters exists
in your network.
Navigate to the /network/interconnect working directory on the managed
From a single server SP CLI, type:
From a CMM CLI, type:
From a multi-domain server SP CLI, type:cd /Servers/PDomains/PDomain_n/SP/network/interconnect
To disable the hostmanaged property and to enable the Local Host
Interconnect state, type :

to modify the preconfigured non-routable IP address and netmask
address assigned to the Oracle ILOM SP, unless a conflict with these
parameters exists in your network.
communication property. For further configuration
details, see Oracle ILOM SP Interconnect Properties
To modify the local non-routable IPv4 address or netmask address provided for the SP,
- To test the local interconnect
management connection between the host OS and the Oracle ILOM SP,
perform any of the following:
- On the managed
server host operating system, using a web browser or a CLI shell,
log in to the Oracle ILOM SP by entering the non-routable IP address
that is assigned to the SP USB Ethernet connection point.
Expected results for:
Web browser connection – The Oracle ILOM Login page
CLI shell connection – An authorization prompt for
Oracle ILOM appears.
- Ping the local interconnect SP
address from the host OS.
