Review the Requirements for BIOS Configuration Tasks.
The Backup BIOS Configuration operation typically takes two to three minutes to complete.
Follow this procedure to back up the parameters from BIOS non-volatile data store to the Oracle ILOM BIOS Configuration file.
From the web interface, click System Management > BIOS, in the Backup section select an option from the Transfer Method list box, then specify the required parameters for the Transfer Method, and click Start Backup.
From the CLI, type:
set dump_uri transfer_method://username:password@ipaddress_or_hostname/ directorypath/filename
transfer_method appears, type either: tftp, ftp, sftp, scp, http, or https
username appears, type the name of the user account for the chosen transfer method server. A username is required for scp, sftp, and ftp. A username is not required for tftp, and it is optional for http and https.
password appears, type the user account password for the chosen transfer method server. A password is required for scp, sftp, and ftp. A password is not used for tftp, and it is optional for http and https.

directorypath appears, type the file storage location on the transfer method server.
