    ILOM username and password


      Purchased X4140 from previous owner on craigslis, but he didn’t know the ILOM username or password as the company has gone out of business.

      How can I get into the ILOM to reset this from the previous owner without being able to login and the ip is not accessible.

          Hi Good day,


          1) What is the current status of the Host ?

          2) Host operating system is installed on the node ?

          3) If the host is running with operating system, you can try resetting with ipmitool


          Follow below steps:
          # which ipmitool

          # /usr/sbin/ipmitool -V
          ipmitool version 1.8.8

          # /usr/sbin/ipmitool user set password 0x02 changeme


          /usr/sbin/ipmitool raw 0x06 0x47 0x02 0x02 0x63 0x68 0x61 0x6e 0x67 0x65 0x6d 0x65 0x00 0x00 0x00 0x00 0x00 0x00 0x00 0x00

          There will be no confirmation after running the ipmitool command, however the ILOM root password will be changed to changeme.

            Use the default user to reset the password



            Recover a Lost Password (CLI)

            Before You Begin

            • You must be physically present at the server to perform this procedure.
            • This procedure uses the default user account to enable you to recover a lost password or to re-create the rootuser account.
            • You cannot change or delete the default user account.
            1. Establish a local serial management connection to ILOM and log in to ILOM using the default user account. style="margin-top:3px;margin-bottom:17px"
            2. Prove physical presence at your server.Refer to your platform documentation for instructions on how to prove physical presence. If the platform documentation does not mention physical presence, contact your Oracle service representative.
            3. Return to your serial console and press Enter.You will be prompted for a password.
            4. Type the password for the default user account: defaultpassword
            5. Reset the account password or re-create the root account. For instructions, refer to Change a User Account Password (CLI) or Add a User Account (CLI).
