| Oracle Integrated Lights Out Manager (ILOM) 3.0
Supplement for Sun Server X2-4
You can switch the serial port output of the Sun Server X2-4 between the SP console (SER MGT) and the host console (COM1). By default, the SP console is connected to the system serial port. This feature is beneficial for Windows kernel debugging, as it enables you to view non-ASCII character traffic from the host console.
You can switch serial port output using either the Oracle ILOM web interface or the command-line interface (CLI). For instructions, see the following sections:
Caution - You should set up the network on the SP before attempting to switch the serial port owner to the host server. If a network is not set up, and you switch the serial port owner to the host server, you will be unable to connect using the CLI or web interface to change the serial port owner back to the SP. To change the serial port owner back to the SP, you must use the Oracle ILOM Preboot Menu to restore access to the serial port over the network. For more information, see the Oracle ILOM Preboot Menu information in the Sun Server X2-4 Service Manual.
The Serial Port Settings page is displayed.
The drop-down list enables you to select either Service Processor or Host Server.
By default, Service Processor is selected.
