How to use your KVM via SnelPanel

03/02/2015 | Internet hosting |

Sometimes you may not be able to reach your server the usual way (with SSH). That’s where KVM comes in handy. When you have locked yourself, KVM over IP is a second door to enter your server safely.

 

We offer a dedicated KVM to each dedicated server. Your KVM allows you to control your server at BIOS level.

 

You can use your IPMI to:

- Monitor your server health

- Access your server when the network is down

- Install a new OS

- Power on / off system

- Retrieve hardware logs etc

- Read sensors data such as your CPU temperature, fan speed, and voltage

- Serial over LAN etc

 

We will explain the commonly used functionalities below.

 

In order to use your KVM you need to log into your SnelPanel account. Once you are logged in you need to visit the KVM page through your dashboard.

 

  • Now you need to enter your username and password. You can find these details on your the KVM page.

  • kvm

 

Using Console redirection

The remote console enables you to manage the remote system by using the KVM (keyboard, video and mouse) over IP. To launch the KVM (Console), you need to:

 

  • 1. Select Console Redirection

  • console-redirection
    •  
    • 2. And then click to Launch Console

    • launch-console

  • Using Power Control

  • One of the most frequent used functionality of your KVM is the Power control feature. This feature is useful when you need to control power and shut down your server. In order to perform power on, power off or power cycle your server you need to click to the button in the red box.
