Access Serial Remote Host Console (CLI)

Before you begin, you can configure properties in Oracle ILOM to make the serial host console easier to view and to enable logging. For more information, refer to the Oracle ILOM Administrator's Guide for Configuration and Maintenance at https://www.oracle.com/goto/ilom/docs.

This procedure describes how to access the host console remotely. To connect to the host console locally, see Log In to Oracle ILOM Using a Local Serial Connection.

  1. Log in to the Oracle ILOM command-line interface (CLI) using an account with Administrator privileges.

    For instructions, see Log In to Oracle ILOM Using a Remote Ethernet Connection.

  2. At the Oracle ILOM prompt (->), type start /HOST/console.

    The serial console output appears on the screen.

    Note -  If the serial console is in use, stop and restart it using the stop /HOST/console command followed by the start /HOST/console command.
  3. To return to the Oracle ILOM console, press Esc followed by the open parenthesis ( character (press Shift-9).
