How to Collect ALOM Data from the OS on T1000/T2000 Servers (Doc ID 1012645.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 25, 2019

Applies to:

Sun Netra T2000 Server - Version All Versions and later
Sun Fire T1000 Server - Version All Versions and later
Sun Fire T2000 Server - Version All Versions and later
Sun SPARC Enterprise T1000 Server - Version All Versions and later
Sun SPARC Enterprise T2000 Server - Version All Versions and later
All Platforms

Goal

Provide list of commands to enable end user to collect ALOM data.


Description
Currently on Sun Fire T1000 and T2000 servers there is no Solaris Operating System bundled command line interface utility for retrieving information from the Advanced Lights Out Management (ALOM) Chip Multi-Threading technology (CMT), such as environmental, fault and configuration data.

This document describes how to use Oracle Explorer retrieve this information as an alternative to connecting directly to the ALOM CMT via the Serial or Network management port.

Steps to Follow
Previous Sun systems utilising ALOM system controller, such as the SunFire V210, V240, V250 and V440, used the 'scadm' utility to communicate with the system controller (SC).

There is currently no command in Solaris Operating System (OS) to do the same with the ALOM CMT SC on the Sun Fire T1000 and T2000 servers.

Oracle Explorer is a system configuration information gathering tool, refer to Doc ID 2419123.2 for download and installation instructions.

Explorer 5.4 (and later) comes with a Tx000 module which can gather ALOM CMT command output from the Solaris OS command-line.  To gather the ALOM CMT environmental, fault and configuration data using explorer, run as the root user:


/opt/SUNWexplo/bin/explorer -w Tx000

This runs the Sun Fire T1000/T2000 specific module of Oracle Explorer, and provides output in the Tx000 directory:

/opt/SUNWexplo/output/<explorer name>/Tx000

It is always recommended to use Explorer 5.5 and later, as the Tx000 module (script) will be run automatically. By default, output from the following ALOM CMT commands is gathered:


showdate
showsc
showsc version -v
showenvironment
showfaults -v
showfru
showplatform -v
shownetwork
showusers
showlogs -v
showkeyswitch

showcomponent
consolehistory -v
