ELOM (Embedded Lights Out Manager) is used on at least the following Sun systems:
- Sun Fire X2200 M2
- Sun Fire X2100 M2
From Managing the Host:
- To power on the host, enter the following command:
set /SP/SystemInfo/CtrlInfo PowerCtrl=on
- To power off the host gracefully, enter the following command:
set /SP/SystemInfo/CtrlInfo PowerCtrl=gracefuloff
- To power off the host forcefully, enter the following command:
set /SP/SystemInfo/CtrlInfo PowerCtrl=forceoff
- To reset the host, enter the following command:
set /SP/SystemInfo/CtrlInfo PowerCtrl=reset
- To reboot and enter the BIOS automatically, enter the following command:
set /SP/SystemInfo/CtrlInfo BootCtrl=BIOSSetup
- To start start a session on the server console, enter this command:
- You should immediately change the password of the ELOM root account from the default value of changeme when logging into the ELOM command-line interface (CLI).
/SP -> set /SP/User/root Password=password Set 'Password' to password
- Adding a user account (CLI) with administrator access.
/SP -> create /SP/User/user Enter new password: Enter new password again: creating user... create successful
/SP -> /SP -> set /SP/User/user Permission=Administrator Set 'Permission' to 'Administrator'
The first time you boot a system with ELOM, it will attempt a network boot because there is no OS on its hard disks. However, once an OS is installed, a network boot can be difficult from the ssh console.
I seem to be unable to send an F12 via the ssh console to boot the system from the network. As a workaround, press F3 during boot to bring up a menu of boot devices (i.e., BBS POPUP) and select a network boot device.
Also, I recommend setting Quick Boot to Disabled within Boot/Boot Settings Configuration to give you more time to press the function keys during bootup.
