Establishing an Oracle ILOM Remote System VNC Console Connection

Follow these steps to establish an Oracle ILOM Remote System VNC Console connection to the remote Oracle Solaris VNC server.

  1. Ensure that all the requirements described in the Before You Begin section have been met.
  2. Launch an Oracle ILOM Remote System VNC Console connection from the local desktop to the Solaris host VNC server using a VNC viewer.

    For instance, if you are using TigerVNC, you can launch the VNC viewer and establish a connection to Solaris host VNC server using either the command line or the Windows Start menu.

    • Command Line:

      vncviewer [server SP hostname or IP address]

      -or-

      vncviewer [server SP hostname or IP address]:5900

    • Windows Start Menu:

      1. Click the Start menu, select TigerVNC.

      2. In the VNC Server property, type the server SP address (hostname or IP).

      3. Click Connect.
