We have been able to successfully redirect the ILOM on this x4600 M2 in the past, but for some reason now we are getting an error that says "CD-ROM image redirection failed to start":

CD-ROM image redirection failed to start

We have also launched the Storage Redirection service and that doesn't help. Launching it a second time to really make sure it's running shows that on the second time it can't bind to port 2121. We didn't get that message the first time, so I assume it is now listening (even though a scan with nmap doesn't show it listening.

Unable to bind to port 2121

We are using ILOM firmware version:

Please make sure that all you security softwares are off.. like symantics n all. and you have also updated version of java. – user125098 Jun 18 '12 at 18:09

Storage Redirection is hard to make work because port 2121 is usually closed or behind a firewall.

Stick to Devices -> CD-ROM image to mount your ISO remotely.

Try to reset your SP. It may take a couple of tries but it will work.

I solved this problem by using the 32 bit version of Java.
