  • For IPv4 networks, the 32-bit JDK is required.

  • For IPv6 networks, the JDK170b36 or higher is required.

For supported web browsers, see Supported Web Browsers for Oracle ILOM.
Registration of 32-bit JDK for Video Redirection

User Roles and Host Server User Credentials
  • The Admin (a) role is required in Oracle ILOM to modify the KVMS service State.

  • The Console (c) role is required in Oracle ILOM to modify KVMS properties (excluding the State property) and to launch the Oracle ILOM Remote System Console.

  • Host server user credentials are required to access the redirected host server.

Video Redirection and Serial Redirection Use
When launching the Oracle ILOM Remote System Console, users can launch the remote KVMS session using one of the following redirection methods:
  • Serial Redirection (Oracle SPARC servers only) – This option is available for Oracle SPARC server SPs only. When enabled, Oracle ILOM presents a text-based console for serial host server redirections.

  • Video Redirection – This option is available for Oracle's CMMs, x86 server SPs, and SPARC server SPs. This option presents a GUI-based console for the video redirected host server.

Communication TCP/IP Ports Required
The Oracle ILOM Remote System Console uses the following TCP/IP communication ports by default:
  • Port: 5120 for CD redirection

  • Port: 5123 for floppy redirection

  • Port: 5556 for user authentication redirection

  • Port: 7578 for video redirection

  • Port: 7579 for Oracle SPARC server redirection only

For a complete list of default network ports, see Default Network Ports Used by Oracle ILOM.
Trusted SSL Certficate Support
As of Oracle ILOM firmware version 3.2.8, additional certificate checks will occur if the self-signed Default SSL Certificate is in use. For further information about these certificate checks, see: Resolving Warning Messages for Self-Signed SSL Certificate .
