I was recently using the HP iLO Remote Console feature, when the Java session crashed and I needed to restart the session. Upon trying to restart the Remote Console feature, I was presented with an error message – “The Integrated Remote Console is unavailable, it is already in use by a different client”.
On the iLO2 firmware that this server has, there is the “Aquire” feature. Once it is enabled, you may “take over” the an Remote Console session. Unfortuately, it appears this is not enabled by default. To enable it:
Remote Console > Settings
Remote Console Acquire: Enabled
An ‘Aquire’ Option will then appear on the window with the ‘The Integrated Remote Console is unavailable, it is already in use by a different client’ text. Click this button to take control of your session that had previously crashed.
