Device Redirection Usage Considerations

  • If you are installing software from a distribution media (such as a CD or DVD), ensure that the media is inserted in the redirected drive on the local client.

  • If you are installing software from an ISO image, ensure that the ISO image is stored on the local client or on a shared network file system.

  • Oracle Solaris client users must perform the following actions prior to redirecting storage devices:

    • If Volume Manager is enabled, you will need to disable this feature.

    • Log in as root to start storage redirection.

      Alternatively, to start storage redirection, you can assign root privileges to the processor that is running the Oracle ILOM Remote System Console by entering these commands:

      su to root

      ppriv -s +file_dac_read pid_javarconsole
