Goal

To discuss this information further with Oracle experts and industry peers, we encourage you to review, join or start a discussion in the My Oracle Support Community - Disk Storage ZFS Storage Appliance

If one loses the administrative password of the ILOM (SP) of his 7x10 or 7x20 ZFS Storage Appliance, there is no longer the possibility to access the system from the SP console.

Access to the SP is very important during calamities (for example when BUI or CLI access is no longer possible) and during firmware updates.

The SP can be normally reached via a serial port (SER MGT) or a network port (NET MGT, ssh) on the rear of the system.
