Start Service For First Time and Register Java Plug-In for Mozilla Firefox Browser

Perform this procedure to: (1) start the storage redirection service for the first time, and (2) register the 32-bit JDK Java plug-in with the Mozilla Firefox web browser.

  1. Launch the storage redirection service from the Oracle ILOM web interface.

    Click Remote Control > Redirection > Launch Service.

    A dialog box appears for opening the Jnlpgenerator-cli file.

  2. In the Opening Jnlpgenerator-cli dialog box, choose one of the following options to install the service locally or run the service from the web interface:
    • Install – Click “Save to disk,” specify a storage file location, and then click OK.
    • Run – Click “Open it with,” choose the javaws (default) 32-bit JDK file on the local system, and then click OK. The Security Warning dialog box appears prior to running the storage redirection service.

    Special Considerations:

    • If you choose to run the Jnlpgenerator-cli file instead of installing the file, subsequent users will need to start the storage redirection service from the Oracle ILOM web interface prior to using the Oracle ILOM Storage Redirection CLI console.

    • If you choose to run the Jnlpgenerator-cli file, and you select the check box for “Always perform this action when handling this file type,” the Jnlpgenerator-cli dialog box will become unavailable in the future and you will not be able to modify the default storage network port. Therefore, if in the future the default network port (2121) will need to be modified, you should not enable this check box.

  3. Start the Storage Redirection Service by performing one of the following:
    • If the Jnlpgenerator-cli file is installed locally:

      Type the location of the installed Jnlpgenerator-cli file, followed by the javaws rconsole.jnlp command to start the service.

      Example Syntax:

      cd jnlp_file_location javaws rconsole.jnlp

    • If the Jnlpgenerator-cli file is configured to run:

      In the Security Warning dialog box, click Run (or Yes) to start the service.

    If the storage redirection service fails to start, an error message appears informing you of an error condition. If an error message did not appear, the service is started and is waiting for user input
