It seems like the new HP DL360G7 servers do not support the textcons command from iLO anymore without an ‘Advanced License’ installed. Since iLO and moreover the ability of using a remote console is one of the reasons we use the HP servers I was not amused. Luckily the Virtual Serial Port (VSP) is still free of license stuff so with a little fiddling around I got it working nicely.

Of course the is lots of documentation floating around on the net, but for my own memory I also wrote it down at so I won’t forget it and others might find it useful.
