Launching Remote KVMS Redirection Sessions

To help you manage the server remotely, Oracle ILOM enables you to redirect a server's keyboard, video, mouse, and storage (KVMS) devices through any of the following redirection methods:

  • Serial remote console redirection: View a text-based version of the host console. You can use the serial remote console to interrupt the boot process and configure server settings in the BIOS Setup Utility, navigate the operating system file system, or issue commands from the operating system command-line application.

  • Graphical remote console redirection: View a graphical version of the host console using the Oracle ILOM Remote System Console Plus application. You can use the graphical remote console to interrupt the boot process and configure server settings in the BIOS Setup Utility or Oracle System Assistant, view the operating system desktop, or enter commands from the operating system command-line application.

  • Host storage device redirection: Mount an image file on the server service processor (SP) and redirect that image to the host. Host storage device redirection is useful when installing an operating system.

To launch a remote redirection session from Oracle ILOM, see the following procedures:
