Redirecting Host Output to Rear VGA Port


Note - The policy for redirecting host output to a rear VGA port is not available on all Oracle servers. Also, the front and rear VGA ports on an Oracle server cannot be utilized simultaneously.

On some Oracle servers, Oracle ILOM provides a policy that enables you to redirect the host output to a VGA port on the rear panel of the server. By default, this policy is disabled and is only configurable from the Oracle ILOM CLI. For further details about setting this policy in Oracle ILOM CLI, see the following table.
