iLO 4 Remote Console in Linux

I had some problems accessing my HP server’s remote console.
I’m using Debian 9.5.. with OpenJDK-8.. it just dont work. I found a workaround so I would like to share it with you!

1. Download Java SE Runtime Environment 8
https://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jre8-downloads-2133155.html

2. Extract and move it to /opt (as root)

tar -zxvf jre-8u181-linux-x64.tar.gz
mv jre1.8.0_181 /opt/

3. Download .jnlp file by clicking “Java Web Start”

4. Run javaws and follow the dialogs.

/opt/jre1.8.0_181/bin/javaws /your/file/path/iLO-jirc.jnlp

Javaws Dialog 1

Javaws Dialog 2

Optional. You can also associate the .jnlp with /opt/jre1.8.0_181/bin/javaws.
