Launch a Graphical Remote Console Redirection Session

Use the Oracle ILOM web interface to launch a graphical remote console redirection session. Oracle ILOM includes the Oracle ILOM Remote System Console Plus application, which enables you to view the host console remotely.

The Oracle ILOM Remote System Console Plus provides support for launching a maximum of four graphical remote console sessions at a time. Full-redirection control privileges are granted to the first (primary) of all current redirection sessions. All other redirection sessions are view-only. A primary user can relinquish full-control privileges by exiting the Oracle ILOM Remote System Console Plus window, or by selecting Relinquish Full-Control in the KVMS menu of the application. A view-only user can take full-control by selecting Take Full-Control in the KVMS menu of the application, or by relaunching the application when a session with full-control privileges is terminated.

Before You Begin

Ensure that the following prerequisites are met:

  • Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 7, 1.3.1 or later is installed on the remote system from which you will launch the redirection.

  • You set the KVMS State property to Enabled in the Oracle ILOM Remote Control → KVMS page.

    In the Oracle ILOM KVMS page, you can also optionally change the Mouse Mode property or the Host Lock Settings. Use Absolute mouse mode if the remote host is running Windows, Oracle Solaris, or a version of Linux that includes driver support for Absolute Mouse mode. Otherwise, use Relative mouse mode. Change the Host Lock Settings to automatically lock the host operating system desktop upon disconnecting from a remote console session.

  • You have Console (c) role privileges in Oracle ILOM.

  • You have operating system user credentials for the host server.

  1. Log in to the Oracle ILOM web interface.

    For instructions, see Launch and Log In to Oracle ILOM Through a Remote Ethernet Connection.

    The Oracle ILOM Summary Information page appears.

  2. In the Actions panel, click the Remote Console Launch button.

    The Oracle ILOM Remote System Console Plus window appears.

    Alternatively, you can launch the remote console application from the Remote Control → Redirection page.
