The following procedure describes how to use the Windows PC/terminal to connect to the SBC 7000 serial port and assign the BMC an IP address.


  1. Connect one end of the supplied serial cable (DSUB 9-Pin Female to DSUB 9-Pin Male) to the SBC DB9 serial port and the other end to the serial port of your PC.

  2. Use the following serial port settings of PC.
    Data bits:8
    Stop bits:1
    Flow Control:None

  3. Login to the BMC using default credentials:
    At the prompt enter:
    Username: linuxadmin
    Password: <password>

  4. Switch User to 'root' using the command: su -
    Enter the 'root' access password.

  5. Execute the command. Assign the BMC management IP address, netmask, default gateway and NTP time server IP address.

    # sh
    ***                BMC Initialization                     ***
    Enter BMC management IP (aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd)     :
    Enter BMC management netmask (aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd):
    Enter default gateway IP (aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd)    :
    Enter NTP time server IP (aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd)    :
    Enter advanced configuration? <y/n>:n
    Note: The advanced configuration is used exclusively to configure static routes. For this installation example, enter "n".
    Verify your entries....
    bmcIpAddr       =
    bmcNetmask      =
    gatewayIpaddr   =
    ntpServerIpaddr =
    Ok to apply configuration? <y/N>:y
    Restarting NTP and network services ....
    Setting up IP spoofing protection: rp_filter.
    Reconfiguratoin network interfaces...done.
    Restarting NTP server: ntpd... done.
    Note: Reboot the BMC after completing the process.
  6. Connect the Field Service port of SBC to the Ethernet router to access the BMC over the network.
