set /SP/services/kvms servicestate=enabled|disabled
Maximum Session Count
The Maximum Session Count property enables you to control the number of users permitted to
view video redirection sessions that are launched from the server SP. The Maximum Session Count
property is available in Oracle ILOM as of firmware release 3.2.4.
As of Oracle ILOM firmware version 3.2.2, the Mouse Mode property
in Oracle ILOM is set to Absolute by default.
Absolute mode is recommended for all host servers running
Windows, Oracle Solaris, or a version of Linux that includes a driver
that supports Absolute Mouse Mode. Use Relative Mouse Mode if the
remote host is running a version of Linux that does not include
a mouse driver that supports Absolute Mouse Mode.
Note - If the mouse mode is modified when a primary user has
a remote system console session opened on the SP, the change does
not take affect until the primary session user either: 1) uses the
KVMS menu in the session window to Relinquish Full-Control of the
session and to Take Full-Control of the session; or, 2) exits and
relaunches the session window. Taking these actions to change the
mouse mode on the client, will cause any active storage redirection
session on the SP to stop.
CLI Syntax for Mouse Mode
set /SP/services/kvms mousemode=absolute|relative
