Set the Mouse Mode

In Oracle ILOM you can set the Mouse Mode property to optimize mouse movement in the Oracle ILOM Remote System Console Plus. The mouse mode can be set to either Absolute or Relative and should be set according to the requirements of the operating system that you are using to connect to Oracle ILOM. Review the following guidelines to determine the appropriate mouse mode for your system:

  • For Windows and Oracle Solaris operating systems, set the mouse mode to Absolute.

  • For newer versions of Linux operating systems, such as Oracle Linux 7, Oracle Linux 6.x, Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 7, or RHEL 6.x, set the mouse mode to Absolute.

  • For older versions of Linux operating systems, such as Oracle Linux 5.x or RHEL 5.x, set the mouse mode to Relative and switch to Absolute if the mouse does not work properly.

  • For Oracle VM and VMware ESXi, mouse mode settings do not apply.

For more information about selecting a mouse mode, refer to the Oracle ILOM Administrator's Guide for Configuration and Maintenance at https://www.oracle.com/goto/ilom/docs.

To set the mouse mode, perform the following steps:

  1. Log in to the Oracle ILOM web interface.

    See Log In to Oracle ILOM Using a Remote Ethernet Connection.

  2. Navigate to the Remote Control → KVMS page, and then select a mouse mode from the Mouse Mode drop-down list.
  3. Click Save.
