Logging Into the Cluster Remotely

You can use the Parallel Console Access (pconsole) utility from the command line to log into the cluster remotely. The pconsole utility is part of the Oracle Solaris terminal/pconsole package. Install the package by executing pkg install terminal/pconsole. The pconsole utility creates a host terminal window for each remote host that you specify on the command line. The utility also opens a central, or master, console window that propagates what you input there to each of the connections that you open.

The pconsole utility can be run from within X Windows or in console mode. Install pconsole on the machine that you will use as the administrative console for the cluster. If you have a terminal server that allows you to connect to specific port numbers on the IP address of the server, you can specify the port number in addition to the hostname or IP address as terminal-server:portnumber.

See the pconsole (1) man page for more information.
