Re: access the remote text console doesn´t work

Think of the remote console as being a way to access whatever is on the screen of the server if you were actually there looking at it. If the screen is in graphics mode, that's what you would see, and without an Advanced license, iLO can't display that on the remote console.

If the OS is Linux or Windows Server 2003, newer versions of the firmware have something called the Virtual Serial Console that replicates the function that is available when connecting up to the server through a serial port with a command line interface. Windows 2000 doesn't have this feature.

It means that iLO believes that the host is in a graphical console mode. Even a command-prompt is a graphical mode if it is in a window. You might want to temporarily activate iLO Advanced with a 30-day evaluation license key:

The "problem" was, that the console screen of the server has a resolution of 1024x768. But now it works

Thanks
