Configure Local Client KVMS Settings

Before You Begin

  • Administrator (a) role privileges must be enabled in Oracle ILOM to modify the KVM State property.

  • Console (c) role privileges must be enabled in Oracle ILOM to modify the Host Lock Settings.

  • The property for Mouse Mode is configurable in Oracle ILOM as of firmware release 3.2.2 or later.


Note -  For servers running Oracle ILOM firmware version 3.2.1, Oracle ILOM automatically sets the applicable mouse mode based on the host server's hardware configuration.
  1. To access the server SP KVMS settings in Oracle ILOM, do the following:
    • Web – Click Remote Console > KVMS > KVMS Settings.
    • CLI – Type:

      show /SP/services/kvms

  2. Modify the following KVMS properties as required:
    Property
    Default
    Description
    State
    (servicestate=)
    Enabled
    The KVMS service State is enabled by default for redirection.
    This State property must be enabled for you to use the Oracle ILOM Remote System Console Plus. If you disable the State property, you will not be able to use the Oracle ILOM Remote System Console Plus.
    CLI Syntax for KVMS Service State:
    set /SP/services/kvms servicestate=enabled|disabled
    Maximum Session Count
    (max_session_count=)
    4
    4 (default) |3|2|1
    The Maximum Session Count property enables you to control the number of users permitted to view video redirection sessions that are launched from the server SP. The Maximum Session Count property is available in Oracle ILOM as of firmware release 3.2.4.
    For further configuration details, see Modify KVMS Maximum Client Session Count (Optional).
    Mouse Mode (mousemode=)
    Absolute
    Absolute |Relative
    As of Oracle ILOM firmware version 3.2.2, the Mouse Mode property in Oracle ILOM is set to Absolute by default.
    Absolute mode is recommended for all host servers running Windows, Oracle Solaris, or a version of Linux that includes a driver that supports Absolute Mouse Mode. Use Relative Mouse Mode if the remote host is running a version of Linux that does not include a mouse driver that supports Absolute Mouse Mode.

    Note - If the mouse mode is modified when a primary user has a remote system console session opened on the SP, the change does not take affect until the primary session user either: 1) uses the KVMS menu in the session window to Relinquish Full-Control of the session and to Take Full-Control of the session; or, 2) exits and relaunches the session window. Taking these actions to change the mouse mode on the client, will cause any active storage redirection session on the SP to stop.

    CLI Syntax for Mouse Mode
    set /SP/services/kvms mousemode=absolute|relative
    Host Lock Mode
    (lockmode=)
    Disabled
    For details on how to set the host lock properties, see Set a Lock Mode to Secure the Host Server Desktop (Optional).
  3. To apply your modifications, click Save on the KVMS Settings page.
