There are times when you want to have a quick access to the remote console of a server like HP’s ILO but you don’t want (not able) to open a web browser just to access it. But there is an ability to access it via SSH (text console only).
- Open a ssh connection to the ILO’s IP address.
# ssh ilo_admin@ip_address
- Enter your ILO admin account and password. After that you will see the ILO prompt.
- To access the remote console of the server at the ILO prompt type “TEXTCONS”
- You will be presented with the Login: console. Enter your root or user account of the server to gain access.
