If you have the serial port connected up on the server you can run the following command which will tell you what the IP is

cd /SP/network    
cat pendingipaddress

by default this is setup to use DHCP If you need to use a static IP try following these instructions.

You can't find it out, but I think it defaults to coming up via DHCP, so your DHCP server might be able to tell you. Alternately, you can go into the BIOS and set it there.

Update: It looks like ipmitool might also be able to interface with ILOM.

Sun doesn't have Linux ILOM interfaces? (I don't know, I'm familiar with HP equipment where there are tools). – Chris S May 28 '10 at 14:56
