Access the Host Console From the Oracle ILOM CLI

You can use the Oracle ILOM command-line interface (CLI) to access the system console.

You can launch multiple console sessions from the Oracle ILOM command-line interface. However, only the first current console session is granted read and write privileges. All other sessions are read-only. Read and write privileges are reassigned when a user with read and write privileges closes their session, and a new serial session is opened.

Before You Begin

Ensure that you have Console (c) role privileges in Oracle ILOM.

  1. Log in to the Oracle ILOM command-line interface.

    For instructions, see Accessing Oracle ILOM.

  2. Type start /HOST/console.

    A confirmation prompt appears.

  3. Type y to confirm that you want to access the host console.

    You are now viewing the host console.

  4. If you are prompted for user credentials, enter the requested information to access the host server operating system.

    You are now logged in to the host server operating system through the serial console.

    Note -  To enter standard Oracle ILOM CLI commands, you must first exit the host serial console.
  5. To terminate the console session press the Esc key and the left parenthesis key (Shift+9).

    Note -  To send a break to the host, press the Escape (Esc) key and type uppercase B.
