Do you need to reset a lost root password and ILOM configuration for a Sun x4200?
The first thing to do is find a spare jumper and determine which version of the x4200 that you have.
After powering off the server and opening the top cover you will need to place the jumper in one of two locations.
Depending on your model of the X4200 the reset jump is either near the power supplies, or toward the handle in the middle of the board.
The image to the left shows the first position near the power supplies.
The images to the right show a close up of the positions both near the power supplies or handle.
The pins for your jumper will be in one location or the other.
All of these images can be clicked to see a more detailed view of each picture.
To reset the root password place your jumper on the pins, close the cover, and power the server back on. When the server comes up you login to the serial console with username: root password: changeme
To change the root password type:
> set /SP/users/root password
After changing the password do not forget to power down the server and remove the jumper!
When you are done removing the jumper and power back up you should be able to login with your new password.
To configure the network information for your ILOM connection match your network information to the following examples :
-> cd /SP/network
-> set pendingipdiscovery=static
-> set pendingipaddress=10.10.10.123
-> set pendingipnetmask=255.255.255.0
-> set pendingipgateway=10.10.10.1
-> set commitpending=true
Congrats! You should now have access to the web based management and be able to use features such as the virtual monitor redirection.
