Onboard Administrator (OA) Serial Port Question

Greg had an OA question:




Is there a way to access serial console on iLO from serial OA port (need TUI )?  Nothing in user guide that I could find.




Input from Dave::




You can use the ‘connect server x’ cli command from the OA serial port, ssh or telnet.

‘x’ being the bay number you want to connect to.




And a reply from Lee:




The iLO Virtual Serial Port is available using the command line interface to the OA.  


Connect to OA using a SSH client.

Connect Server <bay#>  - connects to iLO command line interface

execute “vsp” command to connect to virtual serial port.  This is the serial port console.




Any other input?
