Redirecting KVMS Devices

The KVMS software that is preinstalled on these servers allows for both video-redirection and serial-redirection connections to the Oracle Solaris OS. However, only the serial-redirection connection supports the Oracle Solaris console. Video redirection provides a graphical display to the Oracle Solaris desktop.

SPARC M8 servers cannot perform video redirection through the Oracle ILOM Remote System Console. You must use Oracle ILOM Remote VNC Console.

Console messages can be seen only over the serial-redirection connections and not over video-redirection connections. To see the redirected devices at the OpenBoot prompt, you need to start the video-redirection window before OpenBoot runs. If you start the session after OpenBoot starts, type reset-all to discover and display the redirected devices.

Note -  For information about configuring remote redirection using the Oracle ILOM Remote System Console Plus, refer to Using the Oracle ILOM Remote System Console Plus in Oracle ILOM Administrator’s Guide for Configuration and Maintenance Firmware Release 4.0.x.

These topics describe how to configure remote redirection using the CLI.
