ILO4 and keyboard layout

hi there,


when trying logging in on linux servers via Remote Console (integrated or not), keyboard passes from french to english layout


in a microsoft environment (client using https web UI for ilo) , keyboard changes to english when the mouse is over the ilo remote console window  and change to french over others (in the windows toolbar), and if i force keyboard in windows, it changes automatically to english


in an apple environment with java console, changing keyboard layout had no effect...


in the past, i had a similar problem, and flashing firmware resolves it. But today, the last firmware for ilo4 is dated at may 2012


any idea?


thanks for your help

hi me,


2nd answer to me :)


just configure the OS to the correct layout (linux centos for me, in /etc/sysconfig/i18n), and the ilo remote console will force it (before, it forced it to the wrong keyboard layout)
