Managing Active and Standby SP Redundancy Roles (SPARC)

For Oracle's SPARC servers populated with two service processors (SPs), Oracle ILOM provides properties for managing the active and standby roles associated with the SPs. For instance, in the Oracle ILOM web interface or CLI, you can gracefully or forcibly initiate a failover action that will cause the roles of the active SP and standby SP to change. You can also view the redundancy status assigned to each SP.

Note - The Force Failover (true) option in Oracle ILOM should only be used when you are instructed to do so by qualified Oracle service personnel. System Administrators, when necessary, should always use the Graceful Failover (grace) option in Oracle ILOM to gracefully negotiate the redundancy role change for the active and standby SPs.

For instructions on how to view the redundancy status of an SP or modify the SP roles, see the following procedure.
