Register Java Plug-In for Windows IE Browser and Start Service for First Time

Perform this procedure to: (1) register the 32-bit JDK Java plug-in with the Microsoft Windows IE browser, and (2) start the storage redirection service for the first time.

  1. On the local Windows client, open Windows Explorer (not Internet Explorer).
  2. In the Windows Explorer dialog box, click Tools > Folder Options, and then click the Files Types tab.
  3. In the Files Types tab, do the following:
    1. In the Registered File Type list, select the JNLP file type and click Change.
    2. In the Open With dialog box, click Browse to select the 32-bit JDK file stored on the local client system.
    3. Enable the check box for “Always use the selected program to open this kind of file.”
    4. Click OK.
  4. To start the storage redirection service for the first time, open the Oracle ILOM web interface, and then click Remote Control > Redirection > Launch Service.

    The Opening Jnlpgenerator-cli dialog box appears.

  5. In the Opening Jnlpgenerator-cli dialog box, choose one of the following options to either install the file or run it from the web interface:
    • Install – Click “Save to disk,” specify a storage file location, and then click OK.
    • Run – Click “Open it with,” choose the javaws (default) 32-bit JDK file on the local system, and then click OK. The Security Warning dialog box appears prior to running the storage redirection service.

    Special Considerations:

    • If you choose to run the Jnlpgenerator-cli file instead of installing the file, subsequent users will need to start the storage redirection service from the Oracle ILOM web interface prior to using the Oracle ILOM Storage Redirection CLI console.

    • If you choose to run the Jnlpgenerator-cli file and you selected the check box for “Always perform this action when handling this file type,” the Jnlpgenerator-cli dialog box will become unavailable in the future and you will not be able to modify the default storage network port. Therefore, if in the future the default network port (2121) will need to be modified, you should not enable this check box.

  6. Start the storage redirection service by performing one of the following:
    • If the Jnlpgenerator-cli file is installed locally:

      Type the location of the installed Jnlpgenerator-cli file, followed by the javaws rconsole.jnlp command to start the service.

      Example Syntax:

      cd jnlp_file_location javaws rconsole.jnlp

    • If the Jnlpgenerator-cli file is configured to run:

      In the Security Warning dialog box, click Run (or Yes) to start the service.

    If the storage redirection service fails to start, an error message appears informing you of an error condition. If an error message did not appear, the service is started and is waiting for user input.
