My symptoms were a little different - the console did not hang, but it would not mount the drive (no checkmark shown in the #1 drive icon in the lower left corner of the console).
Following instructions in Sun's release notes, I connected to the ILOM using an IP address, rather than the fully-qualified domain name I'd assigned to the machine via DNS. Now it works.
This is on an X2200M2 with ILOM firmware 3.20. Not sure if it applies to your situation.
I always conenct using ILOM IP address.
I have experienced this problem on multiple sun servers (x4100, x4200, x6220, x6250, x4450, x4140, x4240, x4440 and may more)
I have tried many things like, mounting the ISO image when server is powered-on, mounting it when server is powered-down, mounting when server is powered-on and I am logged onto ILOM console etc..
and till now, I can say that when I am logged onto ILOM console, server is powered-on, I launch the console and try to mount ISO image, it has 99% of time worked for me.
when server is powered-down, then mounting ISO image has worked randomly say 50-60% time..
all these results were obtained while console is launched from Windows.
Interestingly, I also launch ILOM console from Solaris machines and didn't experience this problem at all!
to me, it seems to do something with Java somewhere on windows box.
