Web Interface Overview

The Oracle ILOM web interface uses a model of hierarchical tabbed pages that you select by clicking on the tab name. Once a page is displayed, you can provide information, set parameters, or access other subtabs. For some pages, initiating a task might spawn an additional window, which accepts further parameters. Clicking Save or Close closes the window.

Note - The Oracle ILOM web interface is only supported with the Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox web browsers.

The web interface enables you to accomplish most of the same tasks that are possible using the Oracle ILOM CLI. With the web interface, you do not need to use a command to specify a target or property. Therefore, the web interface is more user-friendly.

Note - The web interface does not support the management controller’s Linux shell. You must access the management controller using the methods described in Accessing Oracle ILOM From the CLI to enable Oracle ILOM shell - Linux shell toggling.

The following illustration displays the initial Oracle ILOM web interface page.

Illustration shows the Oracle ILOM web interface.

The following table lists the tabs and subtabs the Oracle ILOM web interface.
