Posted by on 07 April 2016 02:09 PM

Before You Begin

To collect SP data using the Service Snapshot utility, you need the Admin (a) role enabled.

  1. Log in to the Oracle ILOM CLI.
  2. Type the following commands:

    ->set /SP/diag/snapshot dataset=data

    ->set /SP/diag/snapshot dump_uri=URI

    where data and URI are one of the following:

    Specifies that the Oracle ILOM, operating system, and hardware information is collected.
    Specifies that all data is collected (“full” collection).

    Note - Using this option might reset the running host.

    normal-logonly or


    Specifies that only log files are collected.
    Any valid target directory location
    Specifies the URI of the target directory. The URI format is as follows: protocol://username:password@host/directory

    where protocol can be one of these transfer methods: SFTP or FTP.

    For example, to store the snapshot information in the directory named data on the host, define the URI as follows: ftp://joe:mypasswd@host_ip_address/data

    The directory data is relative to the user login, so the directory would probably be /home/joe/data.

    The snapshot places a zip file in the specified URI.

  3. Unzip the file to access the data produced by the snapshot.
