Fixing ILOM command errors
I have recently seen a number of our systems onsite where access to the ILOM is none responsive via the web interface and ssh timeout or painfully sluggish, and at times it appears the console is simply in a hung state. When trying to reboot the SP I get the following error:
$ ssh email@example.com Password: Sun(TM) Integrated Lights Out Manager Version 184.108.40.206 Copyright 2008 Sun Microsystems, Inc. All rights reserved. Use is subject to license terms. Warning: password is set to factory default.-> reset /SP Are you sure you want to reset /SP (y/n)? y Performing hard reset on /SP failed reset: No such inventory -> exit Connection to 10.1.1.10 closed.
Or when you try to reset the ILOM password or any other command, you get the error:
Set: No such object value
To resolve either of these issues log onto the ILOM as user sunservice and reboot the ILOM with the reboot command.

Normal ILOM operations should always be performed using the root account. Further usage of the “sunservice” account implies your agreement with these terms.

The sunservice account does not exist anymore with ILOM v3.0 and my colleagues in engineering suggest that you should upgrade to the latest ILOM firmware. But you could try the following:
-> ilomconfig modify network --state=disabled -> ilomconfig modify network --state=enabled
You may need to install the Oracle hardware management pack
Brute force & ignorance
The following steps could be used as a last resort:
- Shutdown the Solaris OS system:
- at the ILOM prompt, type:
- Once the server has powered off, type:
