Setting SPARC Host KeySwitch State

Oracle ILOM provides a KeySwitch property that enables system administrators to set the KeySwitch state for the host SPARC server. The KeySwitch property is configurable from the Oracle ILOM CLI or web interface. For further details about the KeySwitch configurable property values, see the following table.

Table 76  KeySwitch State Property Values for Host SPARC Server
User Interface Configurable Target and User Role:

  • Web: Host Management > KeySwitch > KeySwitch

  • User Role: Admin (a) role (required to modify KeySwitch property).

  • To apply changes to the Keyswitch property in the web interface, you must click Save.

Normal |Standby |Diag|Locked
  • Normal – The SPARC server can power itself on and start the boot process.

  • Standby – The SPARC server is prevented from powering on.

  • Diag – The SPARC server can power on and use the Oracle ILOM default host diagnostic property values to provide fault coverage. When enabled, this option overrides user-specified Oracle ILOM diagnostic property values.

  • Locked – The SPARC server can power itself on, however you are prohibited from updating flash devices or modify the CLI property value set for /HOST send_break_action=break.

CLI Syntax for KeySwitch:
For single-server SP, type:
set /HOST keyswitch_state=normal|standby|diag|locked
For multi-domain server SP, type:
set /Servers/PDomains/PDomain_n/HOST keyswitch_state=normal|standby|diag|locked
