Before You Begin
To connect to the host console from a remote system, your remote system must meet the following requirements:
An operating system such as Oracle Solaris, Linux, or Windows is installed.
The system must be connected to a network that has access to one of the Ethernet management ports.
Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 1.5 or later is installed. For CD-ROM redirection, 32-bit Java must be used.
If the Remote Console system is running the Oracle Solaris operating system, volume management must be disabled for the Remote Console to access the physical floppy and CD/DVD-ROM drives.
If the Remote Console system is running Windows, Internet Explorer Enhanced Security must be disabled.
The Remote Console system and Oracle ILOM service processor are set up according to the instructions in the Oracle Integrated Lights Out Manager (ILOM) 3.1 Documentation Library at: http://www.oracle.com/pls/topic/lookup?ctx=ilom31.
The Launch Redirection page appears.
Note - The mouse mode setting in Oracle ILOM must be set according to the requirements of the operating system that you are using to connect to the host console, either Absolute or Relative. For instructions for setting the mouse mode, see Set Mouse Mode.
Note the following:
When you are using a Windows system for Remote Console redirection, a Hostname Mismatch warning dialog box might appear after you click Launch Remote Console. If it does, click the Yes button to clear it.
A Remote Control login dialog box might appear. If it does, reenter your user name and password, and click OK.
Note - The Login dialog box should not appear unless Single Sign-On is either disabled or not supported.
The Oracle ILOM Remote Console screen appears.
Remote Physical Floppy Disk – Select Floppy to redirect the server to the physical floppy drive attached to the remote system.
Remote Physical CD/DVD – Select CD-ROM to redirect the server to the CD/DVD in the CD/DVD drive attached to the remote system.
Remote CD/DVD Image – Select CD-ROM Image to redirect the server to the ISO image file located on the remote system.
Note - Using either of the CD/DVD options to install software on your server might increase the time necessary to perform the installation because the content is accessed over the network. The installation duration depends on the network connectivity and traffic.
