Question ILOM Sunservice login incorrect

We have tried to perform the data collection of 11 SUN FIRE X4170 SERVER as part of preventive maintenance activity. But, when we tried to access the ILOM using sunservice user we got a “login incorrect” prompt.

We used the “changeme” password.

can we use the root/changeme account instead to run the ipmitool command?

Thanks in advance.

with ilom version 3 and above there is no sunservice account anymore. you'll need to create it and you need a service password (which only a oracle caseowner can create) to access the linux inside the ilom.

for ipmitool actions the root user should be your choice or you can create another user with some lesser rights...

ILOM Sunservice login incorrect


I tried to access the server via SERIAL MGT port of x4170 server using root account, but I can't run the ipmitool command.

How will I connect to the server in order to run the ipmitool?
