A host serial console redirection session allows you to connect to the host console using the Oracle ILOM CLI.
Oracle ILOM enables you to launch multiple host serial console redirection sessions from the CLI; however, only one host serial console session user (the initial logged-in session user) on the SP is granted read and write privileges. All other logged-in host serial console session users on the SP are granted read-only privileges. Read and write session privileges are reassigned when the session user with full read and write privileges closes their session, and a new serial session is opened with full read and write privileges.
