Launch and Use the Oracle ILOM Remote System Console

Before You Begin

  • Ensure that the requirements for first-time use have been met: Figure 55, Table 55, Requirements for Using Oracle ILOM Remote System Console .

  • Console (c) user role privileges are required to use the Oracle ILOM Remote System Console and the Oracle ILOM Remote System Console Plus.

  • Upon launching the Remote Control > Redirection page, a serial redirection and a video redirection option are presented for Oracle SPARC server SPs only. For Oracle x86 server SPs, the video redirection option is used by default.

  • Solaris users must use the serial-redirection mode in Oracle ILOM Remote System Console to access the Solaris Host Console, view Solaris Host Console messages, or to issue Solaris Host Console commands such as boot commands. The video mode redirection option in the Oracle ILOM Remote System Console must not be used to access the Solaris Host Console, view Solaris Host Console messages, or to issue Solaris Host Console commands such as boot commands.

  • To control the use of the keyboard and mouse between the Oracle ILOM Remote System Console and the host desktop, see Toggle Key Sequence for Keyboard and Mouse Control .

  • Upon establishing a redirection session to the host server, user credentials are required to log in to the host operating system desktop.

  1. To launch the Oracle ILOM Remote System Console, do the following:
    1. In the Oracle ILOM web interface, click Remote Console > Redirection.

      Note - Alternatively, SP and CMM users can launch the Oracle ILOM Remote System Console from the Actions panel on the Summary page.
    2. In the Launch Redirection page, click a redirection option if options are presented, and then click the Launch Remote Console button.

      The redirected host server desktop appears in its present state. For instance, if the host server is powering on, a set of boot messages appear; if the host server operating system is powered-on, a desktop login dialog appears; if the host server is not powered-on, a blank screen appears.


      Note -  If Oracle ILOM firmware 3.2.8 or later is installed and a Warnning message (Check Certificate or Video Redirection Error) appears prior to luanching the Oracle ILOM Remote System Console, see Resolving Warning Messages for Self-Signed SSL Certificate .
  2. To stop, restart, or start a new redirection session, click the Redirection menu and select the appropriate menu option.

    For a description of menu options, see Redirection Menu Options.

    Special Considerations:

    • A single redirection view automatically appears when the KVMS session is launched from a single host server SP.

    • Multiple redirection views are possible when: (1) a new KVMS session is manually added; or (2) when the initial KVMS session is launched from the chassis monitoring module (CMM) web interface. A CMM KVMS session presents one redirection view for each chassis-managed CPU blade server SP.

  3. To redirect devices, click the Devices menu and select the appropriate menu option.

    For a description of menu options and special considerations for redirecting storage media, see Devices Menu Options .

  4. To set keyboard modes and send options, click the Keyboard menu and select the appropriate menu option.

    For a description of menu options, see Keyboard Menu Options.

  5. To exit the Remote System Console, click Quit in the Redirection menu.
