The Oracle ILOM Remote System VNC Console is an implementation of the Virtual Network Computing (VNC) system. It enables you to remotely redirect the host server keyboard, video, and mouse (KVM) events to a graphical shared desktop display.
To establish an Oracle ILOM Remote System VNC Console connection to the Solaris VNC server over the internal Local Host Interconnect interface, you must launch a VNC viewer from your desktop and specify the server SP hostname or IP address as the remote VNC server. For further configuration details, see the following information:
The following software requirements must be met on the managed SPARC host server:
Oracle ILOM firmware version 3.2.6 or later must be installed on the SPARC server (SPARC S7-2 server or a later series SPARC server).
One of the following Oracle Solaris operating systems must be installed on the SPARC server:
Oracle Solaris 11.2 SRU8, Oracle Solaris 11.3, or Oracle Solaris 12 or later
The solaris-desktop package must be installed on the host server using the Solaris Image Packing Systems (IPS). For further information about using IPS, refer to the Solaris user documentation for adding and updating Oracle Solaris packages.
The following VNC viewer requirements must be met on the management station:
A VNC viewer, supporting TLS 1.1 or 1.2 encryption, must be installed.
For instance, TigerVNC is a VNC viewer that supports the required TLS encryption in both Windows and Linux environments.
A single Oracle ILOM Remote System VNC Console connection to the Oracle Solaris host VNC server is allowed at one-time.
The following properties in Oracle ILOM must be enabled:
The KVMS servicestate property in Oracle ILOM must be set to enabled. This property is enabled by default. If required, a user with Admin role privileges can enable this property from the command line by typing:
set /SP/services/kvms servicestate=enabled
The Local Host Interconnect hostmanaged property must be set to True (default setting) and the state property should be set to disabled (default setting) in Oracle ILOM. If required, a user with Admin role privileges can set these property from the command line by typing:
set /SP/network/interconnect state=disabled hostmanaged=true
