Console access requires the creation of a temporary user account. (Doc ID 1491856.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 26, 2019

Applies to:

Enterprise Manager Ops Center - Version 11g to 12.1 [Release 11.0 to 12.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The following is observed when setting up the connection to allow the serial console through OpsCenter.

 1. The account "xvmC<USERID>" was created ( this name changes for every create console access )
 2. An entry is added to the /etc/passwd;
 3. A password hash placed in /etc/shadow;
 4. Home directory "/tmp/xvm/xvmC<USERID>" was created.

 Questions :  1. Why the new user is located under "/tmp/xvm/xvmC<USERID>"
                        2. What happens to this account after system reboot ? ( /tmp wipe off so this file, do we need to setup console connection again ? , is this by design or a defect ?.
                        3. Does that mean we have to rerun the Serial Console Access Account Job every time the system reboots?
