Do not use the # ; and ? special characters in the password of a target host. If the target host password includes these special characters, file transfers fail from Oracle ILOM to the target host when using Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) to perform the file transfer. Examples of these file transfers include using host storage redirection, and backing up and restoring BIOS and SP configurations. To ensure successful file transfers between Oracle ILOM and a target host, remove these special characters from the target host password.
