You can install the OS and administer the server by attaching a local console directly to the server's service processor (SP). The server supports two types of local consoles:

  • A terminal connected to the serial management port (SER MGT)

    You can connect the terminal directly to the port or connect it to a terminal emulator that is connected directly to the port.

  • A VGA monitor connected directly to the video port (VGA), and a USB keyboard and mouse connected to an exterior USB connector

You can also install the OS and administer the server from a remote console by establishing a network connection to the server SP. There are two types of remote consoles:

  • Web-based client connection using the Oracle ILOM Remote System Console Plus application

  • Secure Shell (SSH) client connection to the network management port (NET MGT)
