Configure Oracle Server X8-2 Network Media

To manually change the network media selection, perform the following procedure.

  1. Power on the server and connect to Oracle ILOM.

    See Power On the Server and Connecting to Oracle ILOM.

  2. In Oracle ILOM, change the network media selection.

    For example, change active_media from SFP28 to RJ45. Then reset or power cycle the system to change current_active_media to RJ45.

    -> cd /HOST/network
    /HOST/network
    -> ls
      /HOST/network
         Targets:
         Properties:
             active_media = SFP28
             auto_media_detection = disabled
             current_active_media = SFP28
          Commands:
             cd
             set
             show
    -> show current_active_media
      /HOST/network
         Properties:
             current_active_media = SFP28
    -> set active_media=RJ45
    Set 'active_media' to 'RJ45'
    
  3. Reset or power cycle the system for the new media selection to take effect.
