How to reset the ILOM password

InfoDoc #: 209731

Power down the host system (using the front panel powerbutton)
or if an SP admin account exists, you can alternatiely use that
accounts ALOM Command Line Interface poweroff command.

Unplug the system’s power cord(s) Remove the system’s top cover.

Insert a Jumper (you provide the jumper) on Pins 1 & 2 of PJ6801.
This Jumper is located at the T5120/T5220 Motherboard

Insert a Jumper (you provide the jumper) on Pins 1 & 2 of J10401
This Jumper is located on the SP of the T5140/T5240

– near the edge of the Motherboard at rear of the system –
center of the rear edge of the Motherboard.

Plug in the system’s power cord(s).

Press the front panel Power button to power on the system.
You must power on the system to complete the reset.

This is because the state of the PJ6801 jumper cannot be
determined without the host CPU running.

The SP root password will be reset to the default changeme.

Log in as root into the SP, using any available method – ssh
or a Web Browser to the SP’s network management port or via
tip-hardware or a terminal server to the SP’s serial management
port.

Password to use is changeme.

That is simply to see if the changeme password works.

Power down the system using the front panel

Unplug the system’s power cord(s)

Remove the PJ6801 jumper. You must remove the PJ6801 jumper
after resetting the password, or the password will be reset
every time the SP is reset (e.g. at power up).

Replace the system’s top cover.

Plug in the system’s power cord(s).

If the system administrator would like the SP’s root account
password changed to something other than changeme Then you
can change the root password using the usual SP’s root account’s
Command Line User Interface command. Whether or not the SP’s root
account password is to be changed to something different than changeme
after the top cover has been reinstalled and the system’s power cord(s)
plugged-in, if the system administrator would like the Host powered-up,
that can be done using the front panel power button or via a login to
the SP’s root or admin accounts and the appropriate START or
power on, respectively, may be used.
