For servers supporting sideband management, you can optionally connect to Oracle ILOM and manage the server remotely through the standard data port provided on the server chassis. Implementing a sideband management connection to Oracle ILOM eliminates the need to support two separate network connections for host and management traffic. However, this approach could: (1) potentially decrease the connection performance to Oracle ILOM, and (2) potentially provide risks for transmitting Oracle ILOM traffic over an untrusted network.
To configure Oracle ILOM to transmit management traffic through a sideband management connection, you must change the default Management Port property value (MGMT|port0) to the physical active data port (NET0, NET1, NET2, or NET3) on the server.
