|How to use TeraTerm for the Serial Console||History||Humor||Etc|
ILOM boots to command prompt after the server powered on. You can connect to it via serial port if you do not have DHCP configured on ILO segment. Teraterm works OK for connecting via serial port.
WARNING: if you switch to console using the commands, recommended in installation booklet you can't go back to prompt:
-> start /SYS Are you sure you want to start /SYS (y/n)? y Starting /SYS -> start /HOST/console Are you sure you want to start /HOST/console (y/n)? y
Not that you completly can't get get back to ILOM prompt ">" but it does represents a challenge. You can get to ILO command prompt only by logging via alternative interface (if you are looged via HTTPS, you can log in using ssh, Also you can power off the server. Oracle support recommended to use Esc ( to break back to ILOM prompt) but it does not work for me.
Via serial interface you need to set the following five parameters:
Enter commands to configure IP and optionally other parameters:
set /SP/network pendingipdiscovery=static pendingipaddress=address pendingipnetmask=netmask pendingipgateway=address set /SP/network commitpending=true
set /SP/network pendingipdiscovery=static pendingipaddress=10.194.54.77 pendingipnetmask=255.255.255.224 pendingipgateway=10.194.54.70 set /SP/network commitpending=true
set /SP/clients/dns auto_dns=disabled nameserver=nameserver1,nameserver2 searchpath=searchpath1,searchpath2
set /SP hostname=hostname
set /SP hostname=nti47-rm
set /SP/clock datetime=MMDDhhmmYYYY.ss
set /SP/clients/ntp/server/1 address=address set /SP/clock usentpserver=enabled

Turn on or turn off the Locator LED

Force boot to CD-ROM or DVD on the next boot (x86 only)
set /HOST boot_device=cdrom
Show network configuration show /SP/network
Show SPARC system firmware version show /System system_fw_version
Note: I did noit found how to escape from ILOM serial console to ILOM ">" interface. But the following trick works if you have physical access to the server.
If you were connected via IP interface, connect via serial and issue the command:

Hi Solaris gurus,
Just got our first T4 servers. Can't find the answer in docs for the question:
On T4 server after I got to console mode (ILOM) usingstart /SYS start /HOST/consoleHow to get back to ILOM prompt ?
Also what is the correct command for booting Solaris DVD on T4 (we need to install Solaris 10 1/13 instead of Solarius 11 with which the box came).
In Quick Ref they said that the commandset /HOST boot_device=cdromis only for X86 servers.
Thanks in advance for your help.
Re: Booting Solaris 10 DVD from ILOM on T4 server, May 24, 2013
The escape sequence is ESC and (
To boot on DVD, you can still go in the domain, send a break and from OBP prompt run "boot cdrom"
1.Local Serial Management Connection Procedure
a. Attach a serial cable between a console (workstation or terminal) and the SER MGT port on the server or the Sun blade chassis monitoring module (CMM). This physical connection provides your initial communication with the service processor (SP). You must set the terminal device communication properties to these values: 9600 baud, 8 bit, no parity, 1 stop bit.
Note - If the transmit and receive signals are reversed (crossed over) for DTE to DTE communications, a null modem configuration will be required. Use the adapter cable that is supplied with your system to achieve a null modem configuration.
b.Press Enter on the terminal device to create a connection between the terminal device and the Oracle ILOM SP or CMM.
2.Network Management Connection Procedure a.Attach an Ethernet cable between the network switch and the NET MGT port on the server or CMM. Oracle ILOM automatically learns the network address of the Sun server SP or the CMM from both the IPv4 DHCP server and the IPv6 router on your network. If you need to modify these network settings, see Modify Default Network Settings .
b.Determine the IP address assigned to the server SP or the CMM. To determine the IP address assigned, establish a local serial management (SER MGT) connection to the ILOM SP or CMM, log in to ILOM, and then view the network properties under the /network and /networkipv6 targets using the show command.
It is also possible to determine the IP address from the DHCP server on your network.To log in to Oracle ILOM, perform one of the following procedures based on the physical management connection established to Oracle ILOM:
- Local serial management connection Login Procedure 1
- Web browser-based network management connection Login Procedure 2
- Command-line SSH network management connection Login Procedure 3
Note - The following procedure assumes that you will use the root account to initially log in to ILOM. This account provides built-in administrative privileges (read and write) for all Oracle ILOM features, functions, and commands. To prevent unauthorized access to system, you should change the root account password (changeme) on each service processor (SP) or chassis monitoring module (CMM).
- Local Serial Management Connection Login Procedure
- At the Oracle ILOM login prompt (->), type root for the account and changeme for the password.
- Add New Local User Accounts Web Procedure
- In the Oracle ILOM web interface, click User Management --> User Accounts.
- In the Users table, click Add.
The Add User dialog appears.
- In the Add User dialog, specify a name and new password for the user account, and then select a user role profile.
Oracle ILOM enables you to select one of three user role profiles from the web interface: Administrator, Operator, and Advanced. For a description of each user role profile, see Oracle ILOM User Role Descriptions.
- Click Save to add the user account properties.
