This section describes how to use the preboot menu to restore access to the Oracle ILOM serial console. This is necessary if the serial console is configured to connect to the host, and a network connection to Oracle ILOM is unavailable.
The serial port can be configured to connect to the server's service processor (SP) or to the host console. The serial port is configured to the SP by default.
You can change this setting using Oracle ILOM or the preboot menu.
If a network connection is unavailable, use the procedure inHow to Use the Preboot Menu to Restore Access to the Serial Console to restore Oracle ILOM access to the serial console.
