This document describes how to use the Fault Management Shell on ILOM 3.x and later platforms.

Caution - The purpose of the Oracle ILOM Fault Management Shell is to help Oracle Services personnel diagnose system problems. Customers should not launch this shell or run fault management commands in the shell unless requested to do so by Oracle Services.

The following fault management terms are defined :

Fault A detected error condition in the hardware or software. A fault can be logged to the ILOM system event log.
FMRI Fault Management Resource Identifier. This could be either the FRU name or UUID.
FRU Field Replaceable Unit (such as a drive, memory DIMM, or printed circuit board).
Proactive Self-Healing Proactive Self-Healing is an architecture and methodology for automatically diagnosing, reporting, and handling software and hardware fault conditions. This reduces the time required to debug a hardware or software problem and provides the administrator or Oracle support with detailed data about each fault. The architecture consists of an event management protocol, the fault manager, and the fault-handling software.
Universal Unique Identifier (UUID) Used to uniquely identify a problem across any set of systems.

Note : by using /X to navigate through the ILOM targets, the system will automatically drive you to /SP or to /CMM accordingly.  Example from a T3-4 system :

-> help /X/diag/snapshot

 /SP/diag/snapshot : Take snapshot of system for diagnostic purposes
