    To log in to Oracle ILOM remotely using either the command-line interface (CLI) or the web interface, you must know the IP address of the server SP. For instructions on determining the server IP address, refer to Modifying Network Settings in Oracle Servers X8-2 and X8-2L Installation Guide.

  2. From a serial console, establish an SSH connection to the server SP. Type:

    ssh root@hostname

    Where hostname can be the DNS name or the IP address for the server SP.

  3. On the Oracle ILOM Login screen, log in to Oracle ILOM. At the Login prompt, type your Oracle ILOM user name and password.

    The default Oracle ILOM user name is root and the password is changeme.

    The Oracle ILOM CLI prompt (->) appears.

  4. Redirect the serial output from the server to the SSH client. At the CLI prompt, type:

    -> start /HOST/console
