ilo2 advance text console (textcons)


I use ssh to access ilo2(firmware version1.70) with the product 320g5p. i want to access to ilo2 using "textcons",but after connecting i receive the error as fallow:
hpiLO-> textcons

Starting text console
Press 'ESC (' to return to the CLI Session

hpiLO-> TEXTCONS cannot continue successfully.
TEXTCONS is not supported on this platform.
A later iLO Firmware upgrade and/or Host ROM upgrade will be required to support
this feature on this platform.

I have no idea whats wrong with it? can you help me?

best regards

Re: ilo2 advance text console (textcons)

Hi, I'm also seeing the same error.

I have updated my Embedded NIC's software and after a while everything stopped responding. My iLO is accessible (HTTP and SSH) but there's no video on the remote console and when I try to access the TEXTCONS I receiv the same error.

My server is an HP ProLiant BL460c G6. with HP ProLiant Integrated Lights Out 2 v2.29
