I recently got my hands on a Sun Fire T-2000 server, second hand. I can connect to the ALOM using the serial port, but I cannot connect to it over the network. Here are the settings that I have:
sc> showsc Advanced Lights Out Manager CMT v1.3.2 parameter value --------- ----- if_network true if_connection telnet if_emailalerts false netsc_dhcp false netsc_ipaddr 192.168.0.225 netsc_ipnetmask 255.255.255.0 netsc_ipgateway 192.168.0.1 mgt_mailhost mgt_mailalert sc_customerinfo sc_escapechars #. sc_powerondelay false sc_powerstatememory false sc_clipasswdecho true sc_cliprompt sc sc_clitimeout 0 sc_clieventlevel 2 sc_backupuserdata true diag_trigger power-on-reset error-reset diag_verbosity normal diag_level min diag_mode normal sys_autorunonerror false sys_autorestart reset sys_eventlevel 2 ser_baudrate 9600 ser_parity none ser_stopbits 1 ser_data 8
With these settings, I cannot connect to the ALOM over the network. I have tried both ssh and telnet and neither one is working. Now before someone says something about the fact that the ALOM should not be connected to a network, or the same network as everything else, this is at my home so I'm not really worried about security of the server. I currently have OpenBSD install on the HD.
I have tried to ping the network port and cannot. I'm beginning to think that the port may be faulty. However, I have a 100mbps full-duplex established on the switch for that port, which doesn't make sense unless the port failed in such a way that frames aren't being sent/received.
I bought this machine because it has a multi-core UltraSPARC processor in it. This will allow me to test out my software on a big endian machine.
I reran the VxDiags from ALOM and posted the result below.

It looks like all the diagnostics pass, so I don't know what to think.
