ILOM is an independent system controller providing a command-line interface and web based interface on T-series oracle sun server hardware’s like T5120, T5220, T5240, T5440 T3, T-4 servers.It can monitor system temperature,voltages,internal disks, chassis fans,CPU’s and power supplies.We can configure ilom with snmp to send hardware alerts.ILOM provides remote system administration and Java web-based console provides much easier than the command line.Another important feature is host control.We can switch on and switch off the system remotely.
Here we will see step by step procedure of configuring ILOM:
1. Connect to the ILOM using serial port:
1 stop bit
No handshakingEstablish an ILOM service processor session.See the ILOM user’s guide for instructions.
Type the default user name – root
Type the default password – changeme
After logging in to ILOM console,creating new account called admin
-> cd /SP/users -> create admin role=administrator Creating user… Created /SP/users/admin -> set root password You will be prompted for a password, change to new password
-> set /SP hostname=’server hostname’-lom Set hostname to ‘server hostname’-lom
-> set /SP/clients/ntp/server/1 address=xx.xx.xx.xxx Set ‘address’ to ‘xx.xx.xx.xxx’ -> set /SP/clients/ntp/server/2 address=xx.xx.xx.xxx Set ‘address’ to ‘xx.xx.xx.xxx’ -> show /SP/clients/ntp/server/1 /SP/clients/ntp/server/1 Targets: Properties: address = xx.xx.xx.xxx Commands: cd set show -> show /SP/clients/ntp/server/2 /SP/clients/ntp/server/2 Targets: Properties: address = xx.xx.xx.xxx Commands: cd set show -> cd /SP/clock /SP/clock -> set usentpserver=enabled Set ‘usentpserver’ to ‘enabled’ /SP/clock -> show Targets: Properties: datetime = Thu May 3 13:47:51 2010 usentpserver = enabled Commands: cd set show
-> cd /SP/network Refer to CMDB for ipaddress,netmask,gateway -> set pendingipaddress=nnn.nnn.nnn.nnn -> set pendingipnetmask=xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx -> set pendingipgateway=ggg.ggg.ggg.ggg -> set pendingipdiscovery=static -> set commitpending=true -> show
-> cd /SP/services -> set ssh state=enabled -> set http servicestate=enabled -> set http secureredirect=enabled -> set https servicestate=enabled -> show ssh state /SP/services/ssh Properties: state = enabled -> show http /SP/services/http Targets: Properties: port = 80 secureredirect = enabled servicestate = enabled -> show https /SP/services/https Targets: ssl Properties: port = 443 servicestate = enabled
