Oracle Linux: Configure A Serial Console For A VMware Virtual Machine (Doc ID 2182045.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 20, 2016

Applies to:

Linux OS - Version Oracle Linux 4.4 and later
Linux x86
Linux x86-64

Goal

Like the process outlined in Linux Serial Console (Doc ID 228204.1) - the aim here is to enable an external log where console messages can be collected so that events which disrupt normal system logging, such as most types of kernel crash or panic, can be logged for diagnostic purposes.
