Logical Domains 1.3 Administration Guide

Connecting to a Guest Console Over a Network

You can connect to a guest console over a network if the listen_addr property is set to the IP address of the control domain in the vntsd(1M) SMF manifest. For example:

$ telnet host-name 5001

Note –

Enabling network access to a console has security implications. Any user can connect to a console and for this reason it is disabled by default.

A Service Management Facility manifest is an XML file that describes a service. For more information about creating an SMF manifest, refer to the Solaris 10 System Administrator Collection.

Note –

To access a non-English OS in a guest domain through the console, the terminal for the console must be in the locale required by the OS.
