Compare ALOM and ILOM commands

ALOM CMT Command
Summary
Comparable ILOM Command
password
Changes the login password of the current user.
set /SP/users/username password
restartssh
Restarts the SSH server so that new host keys generated by the ssh-keygen command are reloaded.
set /SP/services/ssh restart_sshd_action=true
setdate [[mmdd]HHMM |mmddHHMM[cc]yy][.SS]
Sets ALOM CMT date and time.
set /SP/clock datetime=value
setdefaults [–a]
Resets all ALOM CMT configuration parameters to their default values. The –a option resets the user information to the default (one admin account only).
set /SP reset_to_defaults=[none|factory|all]
setkeyswitch [normal|stby|diag| locked]
Sets the status of the virtual keyswitch. Setting the virtual keyswitch to standby (stby) powers off the server. Before powering off the host server, ALOM CMT asks for a confirmation.
set /SYS keyswitch_state=value
setsc [param] [value]
Sets the specified ALOM CMT parameter to the assigned value.
set target property=value
setupsc
Runs the interactive configuration script. This script configures the ALOM CMT configuration variables.
No equivalent in ILOM
showplatform [–v]
Displays information about the host system’s hardware configuration, and whether the hardware is providing service. The –v option displays verbose information about the displayed components.
show /HOST
showfru
Displays information about the field-replaceable units (FRUs) in a host server.
Use the ILOM show [FRU] command to display static FRU information. (For dynamic FRU information, use the ALOM CMT showfru command.)
showusers –g lines
Displays a list of users currently logged in to ALOM CMT. The display for this command has a similar format to that of the UNIX command who. The –g option pauses the display after the number of lines you specify for lines.
show –level all –o table /SP/sessionsNo equivalent in ILOM for –g option

showhost version
Displays version information for host-side components. The version option displays the same information as the showhost command with no option.
show /HOST
showkeyswitch
Displays status of virtual keyswitch.
show /SYS keyswitch_state
showsc [param]
Displays the current nonvolatile random access memory (NVRAM) configuration parameters.
show target property
showdate
Displays the ALOM CMT date. ALOM CMT time is expressed in Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) rather than local time. The Solaris OS and ALOM CMT time are not synchronized.
show /SP/clock datetime
ssh-keygen –l ssh-keygen –r

ssh-keygen –t {rsa|dsa}

Generates Secure Shell (SSH) host keys and displays the host key fingerprint on the SC.

show /SP/users
useradd username
Adds a user account to ALOM CMT.
create /SP/users/username
userdel [–y] username

delete [–script] /SP/users/username
userpassword [username]
Sets or changes a user password.
set /SP/users/username password
userperm [username] [c] [u] [a] [r] [o] [s]
Sets the permission level for a user account.
set /SP/users/username role=permissions [a|u|c|r|o|s]

 

ALOM CMT Command
Summary
Comparable ILOM Command
showlogs -p [r|p] [–b lines|–e lines|–v] [–g lines]
Displays the history of all events logged in the event log, or major and critical events in the event log. The –p option selects whether to display only major and critical events from the event log (r) or to display all of the events from the event log (p).–g lines specifies the number of lines to display before pausing.

–e lines displays n lines from the end of the buffer.

–b lines displays n lines from the beginning of the buffer.

–v displays the entire buffer.

show /SP/logs/event/listNo equivalent in ILOM

consolehistory [–b lines|–e lines|–v] [–g lines] [boot|run]
Displays the host server console output buffers.–g lines specifies the number of lines to display before pausing.

–e lines displays n lines from the end of the buffer.

–b lines displays n lines from the beginning of the buffer.

–v displays the entire buffer.

set /SP/console/history property=value[set /SP/console/history property=value][set /SP/console/history property=value]

show /SP/console/history

where property can be:

line_count=[lines] default value is “” (none), meaning there is no limit to the total number of lines retrieved from the buffer.

pause_count=[count] default value is “” (none), meaning there is no limit to the count of lines displayed per pause.

start_from=[end|beginning] default value is end.

 

ALOM CMT Command
Summary
Comparable ILOM Command
showenvironment
Displays the environmental status of the host server. This information includes system temperatures, power supply status, front panel LED status, hard disk drive status, fan status, voltage, and current sensor status.
show –o table –level all /SYS
showpower [–v]
Displays power metrics for the host server.
show /SP/powermgmt
shownetwork [–v]
Displays the current network configuration information. The –v option shows additional information about your network, including information about your DHCP server.
show /SP/network
console [–f]
Connects to the host system console. The –f option forces the console write lock from one user to another.In ILOM, the –force option terminates the console, permitting you to start a new console.

start [–force] /SP/console
break [–D][–c]
Drops the host server from running the Solaris OS software into OpenBoot PROM or kmdb depending upon the mode in which the Solaris software was booted.
set /HOST send_break_action=[break|dumpcore][start /SP/console]

bootmode [normal] [reset_nvram] [config=configname][bootscript =string]
Controls the host server OpenBoot PROM firmware method of booting.
set /HOST/bootmode property=value(where property is state, config, or script)

flashupdate –s IPaddr –f pathname [–v] [–y] [–c]
Downloads and updates system firmware (both host firmware and ALOM CMT firmware). For ILOM, ipaddr must be a TFTP server. If you use DHCP, you can replace ipaddr with the name of the TFTP host.The –y option enables you to skip the confirmation question.

The –c option enables you to update system firmware on your server without preserving configuration information.

After configuration information has been deleted (by having used the –c option or the set /SP reset_to_defaults=factory command), you must use the –c option when replacing system firmware that includes ILOM 3.0 with firmware that includes ILOM 2.0. If you omit the –c option, the flashupdate command attempts to restore preserved configuration information, halting the firmware downgrade because that configuration information is absent.

load –source tftp://ipaddr/pathname
reset [–y] [–f] [–c]reset –d [–n] [–y] [–f] [–c]

Generates a hardware reset on the host server.The –y option enables you to skip the confirmation question.

The –f option forces a hardware reset.The –c option starts the console.

The –d option gracefully resets the control domain.The –n option sets the auto-boot variable to disable (lasts for one reset).The –y option enables you to skip the confirmation question.The –f option forces a hardware reset.The –c option starts the console.

reset [-script][–force] /SYS[start /SP/console]

[set /HOST/domain/control auto-boot=disable]

reset [–script] [–force] /HOST/domain/control

[start /SP/console]

powercycle [–y] [–f]
poweroff followed by poweron. The –f option forces an immediate poweroff, otherwise the command attempts a graceful shutdown.
stop [–script] [–force] /SYSstart [–script] [–force] /SYS

poweroff [–y][–f]
Removes the main power from the host server. The –y option enables you to skip the confirmation question. ALOM CMT attempts to shut the server down gracefully. The –f option forces an immediate shutdown.
