Set a Lock Mode to Secure the Host Server Desktop (Optional)

Oracle ILOM provides the option to lock the host server desktop whenever a remote KVMS session disconnects. This feature ensures that if a KVMS session user closes the session prior to logging out of the host server desktop, subsequent KVMS session users will be prompted to enter their user credentials to gain access to the system.

For a description of lock mode options, as well instructions for configuring the lock mode in Oracle ILOM, see these topics:

Table 63  Configurable Host Server Lock Options
Lock Mode Property Setting
Description
Windows
(lockmode=windows)
The Windows Lock Mode setting is configurable for host servers running a Microsoft Windows operating system.
When the host Lock Mode property is set to Windows, Oracle ILOM works in conjunction with the standard Windows keyboard shortcut (Ctrl+Alt+Del K) for locking the Windows operating system desktop.
Custom
(lockmode=custom)
The Custom Lock Mode setting is configurable for host servers running an Oracle Solaris operating system, a Linux-based operating system, or a Microsoft Windows operating system without using the Ctrl+Alt+Del K key sequence.
When the host Lock Mode property in Oracle ILOM is set to Custom, Oracle ILOM supports the use of the following key sequences to lock the desktop:
  • A custom key sequence supported by Oracle Solaris or a Linux-based operating system. The custom key sequence needs to be defined on the host operating system prior to enabling the Custom Lock Mode setting in Oracle ILOM. For instructions for creating a custom key sequence, refer to the operating system vendor documentation.

  • A custom key sequence supported by Windows such as the Windows Logo Key+L keyboard shortcut. The Custom Lock Mode setting in Oracle ILOM does not support the standard Windows keyboard shortcut for locking the desktop (Ctrl+Alt+Del K).

Disabled
(lockmode=disabled)
When the host Lock Mode property is set to Disabled (default), Oracle ILOM will not automatically lock the host server desktop when a remote KVMS session ends.
