ILO 2 Advanced Java console doesn't work with Firefox 3.x, why??

I get various Java errors:

These are the errors for the serial console:

The Internet Explorer remote console does work.
Firefox is my default browser, though, and before I pay for ILO,
I would like to know that it will work as it is supposed to.

I had the same problem on a laptop running Fedora 10 x86_64. I spent some time fiddeling with the alternatives command line utility (a linux specific command) without any luck. Then closed Firefox, moved $HOME/.mozilla to $HOME/.mozilla.old, restarted Firefox and the iLO2 console started to work without any errors. So then I went on with finding out what the problem was by moving the newly generated .mozilla to .mozilla.new and .mozilla.old back to .mozilla. And the problem was reproduced.

My conclusion is that something was corrupted inside the original $HOME/.mozilla folder causing the java-applet to fail. Anyway, the fix for the problem in my case was to let Firefox regenerate the $HOME/.mozilla.

I'm not sure where Firefox put it's stuff on a Windows client, perhaps in the Application Data? I'm not sure.

My version of mozilla Firefox is 3.0.8 (3.0.8-1.fc10.x86_64)

BTW! If the remote machine is a Windows server, or any other server running in graphical mode, then the remote console will not work unless you have an advanced iLO2 license. The iLO2 console will only show text based consoles until you install a Advanced iLO/iLO2 license. You can get a trial Advanced iLO license at the HP website.

Re: ILO 2 Advanced Java console doesn't work with Firefox 3.x, why??

Well the real reason it fails for me (although only chrome told me why - others just fail) is that the software certificate expired in March 2009 (v1.78 firmware on a brand new G6 DL360).

In particular for the com.hp.ilo2.remcons.remcons class.

So I wonder when this will be fixed and how come it was done in the first place? Surely iLO firmware should work for let's say 10 years.

I'm on CentOS 5.4 running Firefox 15.0.1 and JRE 1.7.0_15.

 

I know this is an old thread, but I've been fighting with this for a while and finally figured it out. I was getting a ClassNotFoundException for com.hp.ilo2.remcons.remcons.class.

 

The reason that it wasn't working for me was that I had set Firefox not to accept third-party cookies. After I allowed it again, Remote Console started working. This can be found under Firefox Preferences -> Privacy -> History -> Use custom settings for history -> Accept third-party cookies.
