Test the IPv4 or IPv6 Network Configuration

  • Use either the Oracle ILOM web interface or CLI to test the IPv4 or IPv6 network configuration.
    • From the Oracle ILOM web interface:
      1. Click ILOM Administration → Connectivity → Network.
      2. On the Connectivity page, click the Tools button.

        The Network Tools dialog box appears.

        image:Figure showing the Network Configuration Test                                                 screen, from which you can issue a Ping or Ping6                                                 test.
      3. In the Network Tools dialog box, in the Test Type list box, select Ping (for an IPv4 configuration) or Ping6 (for an IPv6 network configuration).

        If the test was successful, the message Ping of ip_address succeeded message appears below the Destination field in the Network Configuration Test screen.

      4. Type the IPv4 or IPv6 test destination address in the Destination field and click Test.
    • From the Oracle ILOM CLI:
      1. At the CLI prompt, type the show command to view the network test targets and properties.

        For example, the following output shows the test target properties:

        -> show
        ping = (Cannot show property)
        ping6 = (Cannot show property)
      2. Use the set ping or ping6 command to send a network test from the device to a network destination specified in the following table.
        Set Property Value
        set ping=<IPv4_address>
        Type the set ping=command at the command prompt followed by the IPv4 test destination IPv4 address. For example:-> set ping=
        Ping of succeeded
        set ping6=<IPv6_address>
        Type the set ping6=command at the command prompt followed by the IPv6 test destination IPv6 address. For example:-> set ping6=2001::db8:5dff:febe:5000
        Ping of 2001::db8:5dff:febe:5000 succeed
