Configuring Serial Port and Network Port Sharing

By default, the SER MGT port connects to the Oracle ILOM CLI. You can assign serial port output using either the Oracle ILOM web interface or the command-line interface (CLI). For instructions, see the following sections:

By default, the NET MGT serial port connects to the SP console. Using Oracle ILOM, you can configure the NET MGT serial port to connect to the host console instead. This feature is useful for Windows kernel debugging, as it enables you to view non-ASCII character traffic from the host console.

Do not configure the NET MGT port to connect to the host console until after you have configured the Oracle ILOM network connection. Otherwise you cannot connect to Oracle ILOM to switch it back from the host console.

For more details about restoring access to the server port on your server, see the Oracle Integrated Lights Out Manager (ILOM) 4.0 Documentation Library at: https://www.oracle.com/goto/ilom/docs.
