Which OS are you running ? eg. for RH

  • To enable, create a SoL policy in UCSM

                Just one setting: baud rate – select 38400 (standard)

  • Apply policy through Service Profile
  • You can then ssh to the BMC directly

                Authenticate using UCSM credentials this time (unlike IPMI)

  • Console output now redirected over SSH

                IPMI v2.0 would normally do this over UDP/623 – UCS is more secure and automatically remaps the output to ssh

  • What will you see on the SoL session?

Server startup sequence (BIOS, etc.)

                If Linux OS installed, you can redirect ttyS0 to SoL (/etc/inittab) and log in through that console
