System administrators can recover the preconfigured Oracle ILOM local root account or the password for the local root account by using the preconfigured Oracle ILOM default password.
To recover the root account password you need a local serial management port (SER MGT) connection to Oracle ILOM. If the Physical Presence State is enabled (the default) in Oracle ILOM, you must prove that you are physically present at the server.
To recover the root account password, perform these steps:
For example: hostname login: default
Press and release the physical presence button
Press return when this is completed...
To prove physical presence at the server, press the Locate button on the front of the server.
