Network Connectivity Deployment Options

The connectivity options in Oracle ILOM arrive preconfigured so Oracle ILOM can learn the physical server SP or CMM network address. To better understand which connectivity properties are shipped enabled, and which connectivity properties are required for your network environment, see the following table.

Table 35   Connectivity Deployment Options and Default Settings
Connectivity Options
  • IPv 4, DHCP enabled

  • IP 6, Stateless, enabled

  • Management Port: MGMT

Oracle ILOM, by default, arrives configured to operate in a dual-stack IPv4 and IPv6 network environment. Upon setting a physical network management connection to the server or CMM, Oracle ILOM will attempt to learn the physical address for the SP or CMM from the IP mapping and routing devices configured on the network.
Network administrators can accept the default dual-stack IP network properties in Oracle ILOM, or choose to disable them and configure the required IP network properties.
Related Information:
  • Auto DNS via DHCP, enabled

  • DNS timeout 5 seconds

  • DNS retries 1

The Auto DNS property in Oracle ILOM uses DHCP to automatically assign the DNS named server and search path.
Network administrators can accept the default Auto DNS properties in Oracle ILOM or choose to disable them and configure the required DNS name server and search path.

Serial Ports
  • Owner= SP

  • Baud Rate: = 9600

  • Flow Control = none

The console output functionality for the physical serial management port on the server is controlled by the server SP.
Network administrators can accept the server SP as the default serial port owner, or switch the port ownership to the host server operating system.
On most servers, the default baud rate is set, by default, to 9600.
