can still use ilomconfig to delete a previously saved local host credential cache. For
additional details see “ilomconfig Host Local Credential Cache Feature Has Been Disabled
(21563538)” on page 53.
■
The fwupdate command now additionally supports updating the firmware of supported
Intel-based Ethernet network cards (add-in cards or onboard controllers) from supported
versions of Microsoft Windows Server OS.
Release 2.3.2.2 Features
The following new feature was added in Oracle Hardware Management Pack 2.3.2.2:
■
■
■
The fwupdate tool does not support updating firmware on Intel-based Ethernet network
interface cards (add-in cards or onboard controllers) in systems running any version
Microsoft Windows or Oracle VM.
To update Intel-based Ethernet network interface card firmware on systems running
Microsoft Windows or Oracle VM, use the optional Oracle System Assistant management
tool included with your system. Otherwise, network add-in cards can be moved to an Oracle
server running a supported version of Linux with Oracle Hardware Management Pack or
Oracle System Assistant installed to perform the update.
Enhanced diagnostic features were added to collect more data from the Sun Storage 6
Gb SAS PCIe HBA, Internal (SGX-SAS6-INT-Z). This includes various disk errors and
SMART events generated for disks in a RAID in the Solaris and Linux environments. These
events help better identify suspect disks in a RAID. For more information, see “Using
Oracle Hardware Management Pack to Monitor Disk Diagnostic Events” in Oracle Server
Management Agents User’s Guide.
For new Oracle Solaris or Linux installations of Oracle Hardware Management Pack
beginning with version 2.3.2.2, the sun-ssm directory name that used to be used in the
path for components has been changed to ssm. For upgrades of older versions of Oracle
Hardware Management Pack before version 2.3.2.2, pre-existing sun-ssm directories are
retained during the upgrade for compatibility.

Updates in Oracle Hardware Management Pack 2.3.x
Release 2.3.1 Features
The following is a list of new features in Oracle Hardware Management Pack 2.3.1:
■
■
■
The nvmeadm tool has been added to configure NVMe controllers. For more information, see
“Using nvmeadm to Configure an NVM Express Device” in Oracle Server CLI Tools User’s
Guide.
New targets have been added to the fwupdate update command for updating NVMe and
NIC controllers. For more information, see “Updating Component Firmware” in Oracle
Server CLI Tools User’s Guide.
For a system with an Oracle Storage 12 Gb/s SAS PCIe RAID HBA, you can enable JBOD
mode so the underlying operating system can access a disk directly without creating a RAID
volume first. For more information, see “Enable or Disable JBOD Mode” in Oracle Server
CLI Tools User’s Guide.
Note - JBOD mode support is also included in Oracle Hardware Management Pack 2.3.0,
but the hardware was not available at the initial Oracle Hardware Management Pack 2.3.0
release.
Release 2.3.0 Features
The following is a list of new features in Oracle Management Pack 2.3.0:
■
■
■
Support added for X5 series platforms and components. See “Platform and Component
Support” on page 19.
Oracle Linux Fault Management Architecture (FMA) is available for supported servers
running Oracle Linux 6.5 or later. Oracle Linux FMA is a host-based command-line
interface that allows you to view and act on faults from the host operating system using
fault management commands similar to those available from the Oracle ILOM Fault
Management shell.
To find out if your server is supported to use Oracle Linux FMA, refer to the server's
documentation or the Oracle Hardware Management Pack support matrix at: http://www.
oracle.com/goto/ohmp.
A watchdog agent has been added. This provides the ability to perform pre-set actions if
Oracle ILOM or the host OS become unresponsive on a Linux system.
■
■
18
For more information on the Oracle HMP watchdog agent, refer to “Configuring the
HMP Watchdog Agent” in Oracle Server Management Agents User’s Guide.
For more information on the ilomconfig targets that can configure the Oracle HMP
watchdog agent, refer to “Managing ILOM and Host Watchdog” in Oracle Server CLI
Tools User’s Guide.
Oracle Hardware Management Pack 2.3.x Release Notes • January 2017
Updates in Oracle Hardware Management Pack 2.3.x
■
■
■
■
■
The fast_updates_enabled feature is available for hwmgmtd.conf. This enables you
to increase the frequency of drive temperature sensor polling for more accurate disk
monitoring.
The Hardware Management Agent on a SPARC server running Oracle VM can be installed
to logical domains. This enables you to monitor storage devices found in the logical domain
using the Hardware Management Agent in a primary domain.
SUN-HW-MONITORING-MIB, part of the Oracle Hardware Management Pack SNMP
plugins, has been extended to include new sensor types found on recent Oracle servers.
The itpconfig tool has been updated to forward event traps based on the ILOMSYSTEM-MIB. You can use Oracle ILOM web interface to download MIBs (under ILOM
Administration > Management Access > SNMP) to confirm that your server supports this
MIB.
System event log (SEL) monitoring is disabled in the hardware agent (hwmgmtd). Use one of
the following tools to access the SEL and fault-based traps:
■
■
Use the ipmievd utility to log IPMI SEL events from Oracle ILOM to syslog.
ipmievd is a binary that is part of the ipmitool package in Oracle Hardware
Management Pack. See the ipmievd.8 man page for more information.
Use itpconfig (the Oracle ILOM trap proxy) to forward the SNMP traps directly to
the host from Oracle ILOM using the Host-to-ILOM interconnect feature. For more
information on configuring Oracle ILOM to send SNMP traps, refer to the Oracle ILOM
documentation at http://www.oracle.com/goto/ilom/docs. For more information
on using itpconfig, refer to “Using the itpconfig Tool” in Oracle Server Management
Agents User’s Guide.
Note - FRU (Field Replaceable Unit) add/remove traps and storage device traps are still
handled by the management agent (hwmgmtd). The management agent must be installed and
running to receive these traps.
Platform and Component Support
For information on support for new platforms and components per Oracle Hardware
Management Pack 2.3 release, refer to the system management support matrix web page. New
platforms and components are added periodically. As they are added, a release-specific support
matrix link is added to the main page which includes a superset of all products and components
supported in the release.

The hwmgmtd utility might not provide accurate results when run on a SPARC T3 system.
Some other Oracle Hardware Management Pack utilities (such as raidconfig and hwmgmtcli)
can also run very slowly on a SPARC T3 system.
These problems are due to a Oracle Solaris issue documented in issue 6937169.
Workaround
1. Disable the affected utility.
2. Issue the following commands:
Note - Make sure that you read the mdb documentation carefully before issuing these
commands.
# mdb -kw
> ddi_aliases_present/W 0
3. Re-enable the utility.

as "AF OO". This issue can sometimes occur when the Oracle Hardware Management Pack
management agent (hwmgmtd) is running and the Ethernet interface has been configured for
network bonding.
This issue has been seen with the Oracle Server X5-4 in an Exalytic product configuration.
Workaround
If you encounter this issue, disable the management agent (hwmgmtd) and reboot the system.
1. From the Linux host when logged in as administrator, enter the following commands to stop
and disable the management agent:
# /sbin/chkconfig hwmgmtd off
# /sbin/service hwmgmtd stop
2. Use ipmitool to reset the service processor by entering the command:
# ipmitool bmc reset cold
3. Reboot the system by entering the command:
# reboot
The system should reboot normally.

fwupdate Commands on Network Controllers Might
Not Show Device Details or Fail When Executed
Right After Linux OS Loads (21210340)
On systems with Oracle Linux 7.x or Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.x, attempting to run fwupdate
commands on network interface controllers within the first couple of minutes after the operating
system is up and available can result in incomplete information or failure of the command.
When attempting to display information using fwupdate list, the output might not show
device information for system network controllers. When attempting to update network
controller firmware using fwupdate update, the update might fail.
This issue is only seen with network interface controllers. The fwupdate command can still be
run successfully on other devices as soon as the OS is up and available.
Workaround
Before attempting to list network controller device information or update network controller
firmware using the fwupdate command, wait for at least two minutes after the OS is up.
For a critical task, such as an update of network controller firmware, wait two minutes after the
OS is up and then run the fwupdate list command to ensure the network controller device
information is listed. If the fwupdate list command completes successfully, showing details
of the network controller you intend to update, you can then safely run the fwupdate update
command.
fwupdate Might Fail When Updating Firmware
on the Oracle Quad 10Gb Ethernet Adapter

In rare instances, updating firmware on an Oracle Quad 10Gb Ethernet Adapter using the
fwupdate command might fail. This problem might also occur when attempting to update the
adapter's firmware using the Oracle System Assistant.
Workaround
If you encounter this problem, retry updating the adapter's firmware using the fwupdate
command. If the failure persists, contact Oracle Support.

Host-to-ILOM Interconnect Issues
fwupdate Might Fail or Take a Long Time Listing or
Updating Four or More Intel Network Controllers
(21920385)
When four or more Intel network controllers are installed in a system, the fwupdate list
controller command might fail or take up to 20 minutes to successfully list information about
them. If you have more than sixteen Intel network controllers installed, the amount of time to
list information will be longer. This issue can also affect firmware updates of Intel network
controllers using the fwupdate command.
Workaround
If you encounter a failure when attempting to list or update Intel network controllers using
fwupdate, retry the command and allow extra time for the command to succeed. If you are
attempting to update network controller firmware and the failure persists, contact Oracle
Support.
fwupdate list Might Show the Sun Dual 10GbE
SFP+ PCIe 2.0 Low Profile Adapter as "Intel
Ethernet Server" (25348996)
When listing updatable controllers using the fwupdate list command, an installed Sun Dual
10GbE SFP+ PCIe 2.0 Low Profile Adapter might be listed as an "Intel Ethernet Server." This
issue does not prevent updates to the controller and all other details about the controller in the
list output should be correct. To confirm the adapter type, look in the "Model" column of the list
output. The Sun Dual 10GbE SFP+ PCIe 2.0 Low Profile Adapter model ID is 0x10fb.
Workaround
If you run into this issue, check the model ID to confirm whether the controller listed is actually
a Sun Dual 10GbE SFP+ PCIe 2.0 Low Profile Adapter. Oracle ILOM also correctly lists
information about this controller.

Host-to-ILOM Interconnect Not Supported for
Oracle VM 3.0.3 (17256129)
Do not install or enable the Host-to-ILOM interconnect on a system running Oracle VM 3.0.3.
This is because Oracle VM 3.0.3 does not have the required LAN-over-USB Ethernet driver.
Workaround
If you need Host-to-ILOM functionality, update to Oracle VM 3.1.1 or later.
Do Not Change Hostmanaged Setting to "False"
for the Host-to-ILOM Interconnect From Oracle
ILOM
For several Oracle Hardware Management Pack commands and M series servers that require
the use of the Host-to-ILOM interconnect, you should not set the "hostmanaged" property
(found under /SP/network/interconnect) when logged into Oracle ILOM to "false".
If the hostmanaged setting is changed to "false" from the Oracle ILOM side, and then the state
of the interconnect is set to either disabled or enabled, applications running on the host will
not be able to detect the change in state and important functions on the host side might fail.
This could affect Oracle Hardware Management Pack commands that use and configure the
interconnect, and also M series servers with multiple service processors that use it to provide SP
failover.
If you need to modify Host-to-ILOM interconnect settings with the host OS running, use the
Oracle Hardware Management Pack ilomconfig command from the host.

Solaris version of ilomconfig again.
DHCP Discover When Enabling Local Host-toILOM Interconnect on a Linux System (17563392)
This issue is fixed in Oracle Hardware Management Pack 2.2.8.
When using ilomconfig enable interconnect on a Linux system running the Network
Manager, a DHCP discover is sometimes done on the system interconnect port.
This action is harmless but the interconnect should not be used until the DHCP discover
completes.

ilomconfig Known Issues
ilomconfig Commands Might Fail When Using
ILOM 3.0.9 (15650623)
Oracle ILOM versions 3.0.9 and earlier have limitations that might cause the ilomconfig
command to fail with the error Cannot connect to BMC. These errors can occur when multiple
programs attempt to access the IPMI interface of Oracle ILOM.
If such errors do occur, Oracle ILOM must recover from this error. This recovery could mean a
one or two minute disruption in the services provided by Oracle ILOM.
Workaround
To help avoid this error, disable the Hardware Management Agent and Storage Monitoring
Agent before using ilomconfig. Also, any other IPMI access to Oracle ILOM, such as using
ipmitool, should be avoided when running ilomconfig.
ilomconfig Host Local Credential Cache Feature
Has Been Disabled (21563538)
As of Oracle Hardware Management Pack 2.3.3, the host credential cache feature used to
facilitate access to the Oracle ILOM service processor (SP) through the Host-to-ILOM
Interconnect has been disabled. The ilomconfig create credential command will no
longer create a credential cache file on the host to store Oracle ILOM username and password
information. Nor will an existing credential cache be used for Oracle Hardware Management
Pack commands accessing the Oracle ILOM SP.
This change affects the way some Oracle Hardware Management Pack commands are issued
that access the system's local SP (like fwupdate, ilomconfig and ubiosconfig) and only on
systems with an Oracle ILOM version earlier than 3.2.4. For these systems, if you want to use
a LAN interface (for either the local Host-to-ILOM interconnect or a remote Ethernet network
connection) you must manually include credentials using the -H and -U options for commands
that access an SP. If credentials are not provided, these commands will default to the slower
local KCS interface to access the local Oracle ILOM SP.
For systems with Oracle ILOM version 3.2.4 or later, credentials do not need to be included
when running commands that access the local SP through the Host-to-ILOM interconnect.
You still need to manually include credentials (using the -H and -U options) when running
commands that access an SP using a network connection.
The capability to delete a previously saved host credential cache is still supported using the
ilomconfig delete credential command.
Known Issues and Notes for Software Release 2.3.x
53
ipmitool Known Issues
Workaround
To use the faster LAN interface for Oracle Hardware Management Pack commands that access
the local Oracle ILOM SP (versions earlier than 3.2.4), you must manually enter the required
user credentials from the command line. The required password can also be piped in on stdin
for scripting use.
Examples:
■
ilomconfig list system-summary --remote-hostname=sp_ip --remote-username=username
■
cat passwd.file | fwupdate list all --remote-hostname=sp_ip --remote-username=username
Where sp_ip is the IP address of the Oracle ILOM SP, username is the Oracle ILOM user
account with root priviledges, and passwd.file is a file you create that contains the Oracle ILOM
user account password.
Note - In the example above, to use the local Host-to-ILOM interconnect instead of a network
port to access the SP, obtain its IP address using the ilomconfig list interconnect
command.

Issue
Workaround
“itpconfig Error 83 "ERROR: Service Processor has conflicting

Yes
itpconfig Error 83 "ERROR: Service Processor

itpconfig uses Oracle ILOM Notification Alert Rule 15 to set up the trap forwarding. If
this alert rule is in use, itpconfig fails with error code 83 "ERROR: Service Processor has
conflicting configuration." This error is caused when you try to run itpconfig when Oracle
ILOM Notification Alert Rule 15 is already defined on the system.
To work around this, set the destination IP address of Oracle ILOM Notification Alert Rule 15
to 0.0.0.0. When using the Oracle ILOM command line interface, enter the following command:
-> set /SP/alertmgmt/rules/15 destination=0.0.0.0

User Warning: raidconfig Shows the System Boot
Disk as Available (20992189)
raidconfig can scan your controllers and connected disks and list disks that are either already
in a RAID volume, or available to be included in a RAID volume. However, raidconfig cannot
tell if an available disk has data on it, or if a disk is otherwise used as either a boot disk or
logical disk for an application.
Before using raidconfig to create volumes (which will overwrite any existing data), use
operating system tools to take an inventory of attached disks, their enumeration, and whether
they contain data that you want to preserve.
Sun Flash Accelerator Cards Incorrectly Identified
as RAID-Capable (18519959)
The Sun Flash Accelerator F40 (LSI Logic 0x050a) and Sun Flash Accelerator F80 PCIe (LSI

Hot Spares Not Visible on SPARC System With
MegaRAID SAS Controller (16729481)
If disks are added as dedicated spares to a RAID 1 volume, the hot spare disks are no longer
visible with the command raidconfig list disk.
This happens on a SPARC system with a MegaRAID SAS controller.
On SLES 11 SP 1 System, Disks Might Disappear
(15845681)
On a SLES 11 SP 1 system, disks that are used in RAID volumes or as hot-spares might not be

(15742034)
When an init task is running on a RAID volume, the disks in that RAID volume have a clear
task started on them. The percentage complete for the clear task always shows zero until the init
task has finished.
A workaround is not required.
Mounted Property for RAID Volumes is Not Visible
When Using SGX-SAS6-R-REM-Z or SGX-SAS6-RINT-Z (15666684)
The Mounted property is missing from RAID volumes created when using the SGX-SAS6R-INT-Z HBA or SGX-SAS6-R-REM-Z. raidconfig will not prevent you from deleting a
mounted volume.
Workaround
1. Using the raidconfig command, retrieve the Device Name for the RAID volume.
2. Check the output of the mount command for an instance of the Device Name retrieved in
Step 1.
3. If the Device Name is present in the output of the mount command, the RAID volume is
currently mounted and should not be deleted using raidconfig.
4. Unmount the RAID volume first, then use raidconfig to delete the volume.
After Creating a RAID Volume With --name
Option With LSI REM, Volume's Name is Still Null
(15675209)
After creating a RAID volume on the RAID 0/1 Expansion Module (X4607A) using

running VMWare ESX 3.5 Update 5, the RAID volumes have the same device name.
RAID 10 Listed as Not Supported When Creating
RAID Volume With raidconfig (22129034)
On a system with the Sun Storage 6 Gb/s SAS PCIe HBA (internal or external), attempting
to create a RAID 10 volume using raidconfig with the --level=10 option will yield the
following message: "ERROR: RAID level not supported by controller."
Workaround
The FCODE version 1.00.65 on the Sun Storage 6 Gb/s SAS PCIe HBA (internal or external)
does not support RAID 10. It does support an even (four or more) or odd (3 or more) number of
disks used in a RAID level 1e. Use RAID level 1e in place of RAID level 10.
For example, to create a RAID 1e volume on four disks in the system, type:
raidconfig create raid --level=1e -d c0d0,c0d1,c0d2,c0d3
This RAID volume will be seen as RAID 1e by raidconfig, but seen as RAID 10 by the HBA's
configuration utility (sas2ircu).
This is expected behavior with the Sun Storage 6 Gb/s SAS PCIe HBA using FCODE version
1.00.65.

Using Oracle Hardware Management Pack With SPARC M5-32 and M6-32 Servers
For SPARC M5-32 and M6-32 systems, open_problems diagnosed by Oracle ILOM are not
reported by hwmgmtcli on PDOM hosts. In addition, health, and health_details information
might be missiing or not reliable.
On multi-domain systems hwmgmtcli can only see the devices (such as controllers and storage)
that are dedicated to the host domain where hwmgmtcli is being run. In contrast, Oracle ILOM
obtains reports from all domains and therefore can report on all devices in the system.
itpconfig (16508501, 16507898)
The fault proxy cannot be enabled on the SPARC M5-32 and M6-32 servers. These servers
have no Oracle ILOM alert management on the SPP, and there is no Host-to-ILOM interconnect
between the SP and an OS, so there is no way for this tool to function.
