My question now is: Has anyone gotten the JAVA version of IPView to work, specifically, the KVM Console?
I get an error "no iKVM32 in java.library.path" From my research, it's telling me that the file iKVM32.so (UNIX) or iKVM32.dll (Windows) is not available in a library path. I'm on OS X so I don't find an iKVM32.so file (there is an libiKVM32.so file), tho I do find a .dll file.
You can tell I'm a n00b to Java
If you downloaded the zip file of the JAVA Version
and unzipped it into a Directory (i.e. "IPMIViewer"),
everything is in there.
All you have to do is to start the application from there, pointing the JAVA search
path into that very directory.
There is a linux shell script, called "IPMIView20.sh" in there as well.
Open it, and you can see the command to issue in order to start the IPMIViewer.
Mine states a single command: "java -Djava.library.path=. -jar IPMIView20.jar"
That does the trick on my side.
BTW: When you will use the KVM Console from inside IPMI-Viewer or from inside
the Web-Browser, it will download a JavaWebStart-file. You will need to find out on how
to (auto-)start these files on your platform. For the Browser-version I had to download
a plugin for firefox in order to get it to work and asoftware package for my OS
when launched from IPMIViewer.
