Password is changeme - no spaces.
re: serial number -- you did get the serial number from the chassis or where?
Edit:
It looks to me like the box failed to post - that means a hardware error. Do you have support from Oracle?

Assuming that the hardware is not faulty (which is a possibility) I think we need to try and get a 'ok' prompt in order to install Solaris 10.

So try this.....

1. Power up the machine from cold (no power) and don't touch it at all. Let the ALOM boot and when the menu appears don't touch anything. Many a ALOM firmware will drop to a 'ok' prompt after a timeout if you don't touch anything. After five minutes try hitting 'return' and/or entering CTRL-Q in case the console is x-off'd.

2. After the menu is displayed trying keying CTRL-Fn-F12
Do you get any response. Cold power up a few times and enter that keystroke at various different stages of boot.

If we can install Solaris you can use 'scadm' with the OS running to configure the ALOM. I'm beginning to think that you won't achieve it any other way.

If you do manage to get to a 'ok' prompt try the command 'boot' first in case there's already an installed OS on the system.

The older V series machines don't have a default service processor password or login. You need to install Solaris using the serial port of the server and NOT the service processor. After you have Solaris running, you can configure the ALOM with the scadm utility, which is for all administration of the ALOM.

C H A P T E R 7 - Using the scadm Utility

If that doesn't work, I have to check some internal documents and see if there is a workaround. Haven't worked on a V215 for years...

@DukeNuke - oops, long time no see a V215 - you are right no default passwords.
Thanks for the correction.

I just checked the internal documents... There is a "kind of default" login when you connect for the first time.

The login should be admin and the last 8 digits of you SN# should be the password. I've never tried that... For more information use the Oracle support website and search for Doc ID 1005438.1

Best,

Over the years there were so many different "service processor" things... It's hard to keep track on how to use them... ALOM, ILOM, ELOM, XSCF and and and... Sometimes the same name but different commands and so on... I'm happy that for the last few years it is just the ILOM.

Just found a document that shows which system is using what kind of service processor:

How to determine which systems have ILOM/ALOM4v/ALOM/LOM/ELOM/SP/XSCF or RSC ? (Doc ID 1012360.1)
