Take a look at Sun Advanced Lights Out Manager (ALOM) 1.6 Administration Guide - Chapter 3: Configuring ALOM, there are sections on how to configure the NET MGT port either manually or with DHCP.

I already set it. Is it possible access OS Solaris via ALOM? Or need to use eth0?

You can access the system console with the console command, as detailed in Chapter 4 of the same document: Common ALOM Tasks.

There is no eth0 on a T2000 running Solaris, this is a Linux terminology. The standard network interfaces are NETMGT and NET0 to NET4. Which one are you talking about?

In any case, your OS is either suspended or not booted according to your last reply so there is no way to access it (yet).

Run "go" or "boot" from the "ok" prompt to either resume or boot the OS.
