In the BIOS Setup Utility, you can set optimal defaults, and view and edit UEFI settings, as needed. By setting optimal defaults, you ensure that the server is operating efficiently with a configuration that is known to be good. In the BIOS Setup Utility, use the F2 key to set UEFI optimal defaults and view and edit UEFI settings. Review the optimal defaults in the Oracle Server X8-2 Service Manual or see Setting Up BIOS Configuration Parameters in Oracle Server X8-2L Service Manual.
Any changes you make in the BIOS Setup Utility using the F2 key are permanent until the next time you change them.
Before you begin, ensure that the following requirements are met:
The USB device, hard disk drive (HDD) or solid state drive (SSD) is properly installed in the server. For instructions, refer to Servicing Storage Drives (CRU) in Oracle Server X8-2 Service Manual or Servicing Storage Drives (CRU) in Oracle Server X8-2L Service Manual.
A console connection is established to the server. For details, see Selecting the Console Display.
For more information and detailed procedures, refer to "Reset the BIOS Firmware to Default Settings (BIOS)" in Oracle X8 Series Servers Administration Guide at https://www.oracle.com/goto/x86admindiag/docs.
The BIOS Setup Utility screen appears.
Alternatively, select Save Changes and Exit from the Exit menu.
Refer to "Reset BIOS Configuration to Factory Defaults" in Oracle ILOM Administrator's Guide for Configuration and Maintenance Firmware Release 4.0.x at https://www.oracle.com/goto/ilom/docs for Oracle ILOM web and CLI methods.
For example perform one of the following actions to reset the BIOS non-volatile data store parameters to factory defaults:
From the web interface, click System Management > BIOS, then select Factory from the Reset To Defaults list box and click Save.
From the CLI, type: ->set /System/BIOS reset_to_defaults=factory
Oracle ILOM resets the BIOS Setup parameters in the non-volatile data store to factory defaults. The Reset To Defaults value reverts to None after the factory default parameters are applied.
