The base on the requirement this will be a DBMA Task
- The database server ILOM IP (usually <dbserver-name>-ilom like <mycluster>db02-ilom)
- The ILOM root’s password (in case of, the default password is welcome1)

This would have started a hard reboot of the myclusterdb01 database server.
You can then connect to the console to have a look at what is happening (the server boot logs) :

Please keep in mind that :
Unlike an Infiniband Switch, you do not have to use the spsh command to jump into the ILOM shell as you are using the dedicated ILOM IP address to connect to
