Set ILOM SUN Server by serial CLI

To configure ILOM on a SUN server make a serial connection to the rear of the server.

Putty 9600 baud

Default credentials on a new system:
changeme or l3tm3in

First reset the ILOM to defaults:
Reset to defautl: set /SP reset_to_defaults=all

Now we can configure the network settings, these are for a static setup. Make sure to press enter between every line.

set /SP/network pendingipdiscovery=static
set /SP/network pendingipaddress=IPADRESS
set /SP/network pendingipgateway=IPADRESS
set /SP/network pendingipnetmask=IPADRESS
set /SP/network commitpending=true

Finaly check if the settings are applied with:

show sp/network

To reset the ILOM root password, power-off the server (remove cables).

-> Press the front locate LED and keep pressing it until the PREBOOT menu is visible on serial console.

-> By pressing the locate front LED of server, plugin the cables.

-> On the PREBOOT menu, type the following:

PREBOOT> unconfig ilom_conf

{ users | ilom_conf | most | all }

Causes ILOM to erase any configuration information and returns the values to defaults the next time ILOM boots.

  • users – Resets all configured user information.
  • password -Resets the ILOM root password to the default.
  • ilom_conf – Resets configuration settings but preserves SP network and baudratepreferred, and check_physical_presence.
  • most – Resets the SP data storage, but preserves network and baud rate, preferred, and check_physical_presence settings.
  • all – Resets all SP data storage and settings.

Booting ILOM restores other defaults.

Note – None of these options erases the dynamic FRU PROMs.

-> After the command is successful, on PREBOOT give command boot.
