Set Up the Local Console

  1. To connect a local console, do one of the following:
    • Connect a terminal to the serial management port (SER MGT) either directly or through a terminal emulator. Set the terminal device to 9600 baud, 8 bit, no parity, 1 stop bit (9600/8-N-1).

    • Connect a VGA monitor, keyboard, and mouse to the video port (VGA) and the USB ports.

  2. For serial management port (SER MGT) connections only, press Enter on the terminal device to create a connection between the serial console and the Oracle ILOM SP.

    The Oracle ILOM Login prompt appears.

  3. Log in to Oracle ILOM. At the Login prompt, type your Oracle ILOM user name and password.

    The default Oracle ILOM user name is root and the default password is changeme.

    The Oracle ILOM command line interface (CLI) prompt (→) appears.

  4. Connect to the host console. At the CLI prompt, type:

    -> start /HOST/console

    The serial management port output is automatically routed to the Linux host serial local console.
