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).

  1. Open a ssh connection to the ILO’s IP address.
    # ssh ilo_admin@ip_address

  2. Enter your ILO admin account and password. After that you will see the ILO prompt.

  3. To access the remote console of the server at the ILO prompt type “TEXTCONS”

  4. You will be presented with the Login: console. Enter your root or user account of the server to gain access.
