Howto auto boot SPARC | How to auto supply "start /SYS" and "start /SP/console" commands

When I power ON my T4-1, I got a prompt -> where I have to start /SYS and start /SP/console. How can I auto supply these two commands ?

I'm going to make an assumption here that you want the actual host to auto boot, not the Service Processor to automatiaclly start the console to the host.

To set the host to auto boot from the ILOM you need to run the command;

-> set /HOST/bootmode script=”¯setenv auto-boot? true”¯
-> reset /SYS
-> start /HOST/console

You should then be able to watch the host boot to the login banner and login as normal.

I see that you are trying to connect to the system through the ILOM.console connection, this is normally for mainenance/initial configuration only and all other instances you would connect to the server/host using an other method.

In most instances this would be ssh or similar protocol, assuming that you have setup the networking on the server. Connecting to the host through the console would be ok to bring the server up (although not usual) in a production environment. However it would not be the way to use the server when it's in everyday use.

Additionally forcing the ILOM to connect as the console could lead to a situation where you may not be able to use it as intended. As you are aware there are both serial and network ILOM's on these boxes and having had a look around on the Oracle site (because I've never seen anyone request to have the /HOST/console as a default condition) I can't find much on this subject.

To ensure that the host comes to the login prompt you would need to set the policy for a power cycle to the server as;
-> set /SP/policy HOST_LAST_POWER_STATE=enabled

You may also want to set the Automatic System Recovery using;
-> set /HOST/diag mode=normal
-> set /HOST/diag level=max
-> set /HOST/diag trigger=power-on-reset

An at the ok prompt set;

ok setenv auto-boot? true
ok setenv auto-boot-on-error? true
ok reset-all

This should mean that if the power is removed the system will return to it's previous state.
