Lock Host Desktop When Disconnecting a Remote KVMS Session

Before You Begin

  • For Custom Lock Mode configurations, the custom key sequence must be defined on the host server operating system prior to setting the Custom Lock Mode option in Oracle ILOM.

  • The Console (c) role is required to modify the host lock properties in Oracle ILOM.

  1. Set a value for the Host Lock Mode property in Oracle ILOM by doing the following:
    • Web – Click Remote Control > KVMS. In KVMS Settings page, click the Lock Mode list box to select one of the following values: Windows, Custom, or Disable.
    • CLI – Type:

      set /SP/services/kvms lockmode=windows|custom|disabled

      If you set the Lock Mode property to Custom, proceed to Step 2. If you did not set the Lock Mode property to Custom and you are using the web interface, proceed to Step 3. Otherwise, you have completed the procedure.

  2. If the Lock Mode property in Step 1 was set to Custom, perform the following steps to specify Custom Lock Modifiers and a Custom Lock key:
    • Web – In the KVMS Settings page do the following:
      1. Click the Custom Lock Modifiers list box and select the custom key sequence defined on the host server OS.
      2. Click the Custom Lock Key list box and select a custom lock key.
    • CLI – Type:
      1. set /SP/services/kvms lockmodifiers=value
      2. set /SP/services/kvms custom_lock_key=value

    Possible Custom Lock Modifiers Values: l_alt, r_alt, l_shift, r_shift, l_ctrl, r_ctrl, l_gui, r_gui

    Up to four Custom Lock Modifiers values can be specified. Each modifier can be separated by a comma.

    Possible Custom Lock Key Values: esc, end, tab, ins, del, home, enter, space, break, backspace, pg_up, pg_down, scrl_lck, sys_rq, num_plus, num_minus, f1, f2, f3, f4, f5, f6, f7, f8, f9, f10, f11, f12, a-z, 0-9, !, @, #, $, %, ^, &, *, (, ), -, _, =, +, ?, |, ~, [, {, ], }, ;, :, <, ., >, /

    See the Host Lock Configuration Example following this procedure.

  3. To apply the property changes you made within the KVMS Setting page, click Save.

Host Lock Configuration Example:

If Shift+Control+Backspace was defined on the host server operating system as a custom lock key sequence, then the following KVMS lock properties would be set in the Oracle ILOM SP:

  • custom_lock_key = backspace

  • custom_lock_modifiers = l_shift, l_ctrl

  • lockmode = custom

  • mousemode = absolute

  • servicestate = enabled
