Accessing the Server Output During Installation

Installing the OS requires you to view the system console output. This can appear on both the serial port and the video port.

Note - This topic describes the default video and serial port outputs. Other settings, including console commands and GRUB menu selections, can change this behavior.

Your server is equipped with a serial port and a video port.

Other settings can affect this behavior. They include console commands, ILOM settings, and GRUB settings for operating systems that include a GRUB.
