Strange characters showing on remote consile


Did anyone ever had an issue that whenever you typed something on the ILO remote console it added an ESC character to it?

For example, during the login process on the console, when I type “root” it shows as “^[r^[o^[o^[t” , as a result we cannot use the console to login. This issue happens with IE, Chrome, Firefox and  SSH client connecting  to the ILO.

Any help is  appreciated.
