Virtual keyboard, video, and mouse feature included with Integrated Lights Out (iLO) 2
Management Processor (MP) on Integrity servers (rx2660, rx3600, and rx6600 Integrity servers
and the BL860c and BL870c Server Blade products). The feature allows you to connect a virtual
serial line from your PC to Integrity servers, enabling your PC, keyboard, and mouse to function
as if directly connected to the server. Your window displays the contents of the Integrity server's
A virtual-disk capability included with Integrated Lights Out (iLO) 2 Management Processor
(MP) on Integrity servers. vMedia provides virtual devices that mimic physical hardware
devices. For example, it can provide a virtual CD/DVD drive that emulates the DVD drive on
a PC and connects over the network to your Integrity servers as if it were physically connected.
You can use vMedia to install OpenVMS on Integrity servers that do not include a built-in
DVD drive or that are physically located elsewhere. vMedia can provide the network service
for HP SIM provisioning, or it can be used independently of HP SIM.
1.2 Getting to Know Your Integrity servers
The OpenVMS operating system is now supported on a wide variety of HP Integrity servers,
including the following:
Entry-class servers, which include members of the rx16nn, rx26nn, rx36nn, rx46nn, and
rx66nnseries and the BladeSystems Integrity BL860c and BL870c Server Blade products
Midrange servers, which include members of the rx76nnand rx86nnseries
High-end servers (Superdome)
For an up-to-date list of servers supported by the current release of OpenVMS, see the HP
OpenVMS Version 8.4 Software Product Description (SPD 82.35.xx).
The hardware, firmware, and software supported might vary significantly from system to system.
Integrity servers are available in many different configurations. The hardware, utilities, and
hardware configuration procedures might differ significantly across models, and even across
versions of the same model. This manual provides basic information about the firmware,
hardware, and utilities offered on Integrity servers. This information is not meant to replace the
hardware documentation. For the most up-to-date and relevant information for your particular
model, see the hardware documentation for your Integrity servers. The hardware documentation
includes model-specific illustrations to guide you. The latest version of documentation for your
server can be found online at:
For the latest information about firmware, software requirements, and special considerations
for your Integrity servers, see the HP OpenVMS Version 8.4 Release Notes.
1.2.1 Entering Commands at Integrity servers Console Interfaces
When entering commands for the Integrity servers, if you press Deleteon a VTxxx terminal (or
press the key you have mapped to send the DEL/RUBOUT character code in your terminal
emulator), the last character typed might not be deleted, as would be expected on an OpenVMS
Alpha system. The firmware on Integrity servers where that unexpected behavior occurs uses
Ctrl/Hto delete the last character typed. On such Integrity servers, you can remap your terminal
to use Ctrl/Hinstead of DEL/RUBOUT, as described in Section B.1.3 (page 190).
1.2.2 Integrity server Tools
Integrity servers include multiple interfaces for working with various aspects of the server or
server complex. The Management Processor (MP) is available on most Integrity servers. Many
entry-class Integrity servers now come with the Integrated Lights Out (iLO) MP (Integrity iLO
MP), which provides a complete remote console experience, including a web-based graphical
