Hello.  I have just ugraded from AIX 5.1 --> AIX 5.3 on IBM 7026 H80 - no console login prompt comes up after reboot.

Backing up a few steps, I upgraded the system firmware prior to installing AIX 5.3 on IBM 7026 H80 because this was required.

The preservation install to 5.3 said that it completed successfully, filesets were installed successfully.

After the date/time was set, TCP/IP basic config, etc. was completed, the server rebooted.

On Operator console, I saw the Operator console codes scrolling by as expected, per H80 Service Guide, when a server starts up.

On Operator console, saw "mounting /var, mounting /usr, syncvg rootvg, ..." then code 0c33, then blank screen.

Using my Windows pc laptop - hyperterm 9600 8-N-1 Flow control=Xon/Xoff as a console, I see services starting up "tcpip, nfs" then hangs before console login prompt is displayed.

Please help!  I have gone into Maintenance mode and checked the /etc/security/ files for console entries.  Seem to be OK compared to an existing H80 running AIX 5.1 (old development box).

Please advise why this might be happening.

I don't want to have to do a complete/new install.

Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Hi,

C33
A TTY terminal attached to serial ports S1 or S2 was selected.

The system hung while indicating that a TTY terminal is the system console. Action: Use MAP 1540 in your system service guide. Suspect the graphics adapter being used for the display console first.
