How to run an ILOM Snapshot on a Sun/Oracle X86 System from the service processor CLI interface

This example shows how to run an ILOM snapshot on a cell server ( xx.xx.xx.xx ), on which one or more flashdisks have failed. This snapshot is required by Oracle support for diagnosing the issue.

1) Log in to the ILOM CLI interface.

# ssh xx.xx.xx.xx-ilom
Password:

Oracle(R) Integrated Lights Out Manager
Version 3.1.2.20.c r86871
Copyright (c) 2014, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.

->

2) After the ‘->’ prompt, type command in below:

-> set /SP/diag/snapshot dataset=normal
Set 'dataset' to 'normal'

3) Type the following command:

Here password contains special characters, so  double quotes around the password are needed.

IP ( 10.10.10.17 ) could be either cell server or database server IP, as long as the user/password works on it.

-> set /SP/diag/snapshot dump_uri=sftp://jhuang:"Password#"@10.10.10.17/tmp
Set 'dump_uri' to 'sftp://jhuang:Johnson123#@10.10.10.17/tmp'

4) cd to the snapshot directory and view the status. It shows “Running” initially.

-> cd /SP/diag/snapshot
/SP/diag/snapshot

-> show

/SP/diag/snapshot
 Targets:

Properties:
 dataset = normal
 dump_uri = (Cannot show property)
 encrypt_output = false
 result = Running

Commands:
 cd
 set
 show

5) Wait for the snapshot process to complete. It may take several minutes.
Continue to check until the status is shows ‘Snapshot Complete’
Do not use, access, view, copy or move the snapshot file until it has completed.

-> show

/SP/diag/snapshot
 Targets:

Properties:
 dataset = normal
 dump_uri = (Cannot show property)
 encrypt_output = false
 result = Collecting data into 
 sftp://jhuang:*****@10.10.10.17/tmp/xx.xx.xx.xx-ilom_1152FMM0C1
 _2016-04-17T10-59-15.zip
 Snapshot Complete.
 Done.

Commands:
 cd
 set
 show

6) exit the CLI interface and find your snapshot in the directory you specified.

->exit
Connection to xx.xx.xx.xx-ilom closed.

$ssh jhuang@10.10.10.17
jhuang@10.10.10.17's password: 

$ls -ltr /tmp/xx.xx.xx.xx-ilom_1152FMM0C1_2016-04-17T10-59-15.zip
