I have a SUN X4200 , brand new from factory. i want to install a different OS from the factory pre-installed ona and so i am trying to send a break signal through the iLOM interface..

i connect via serial to the iLOM, then i type "start /SP/console" to enter console mode, and then i type the default break sequence which is ESC B (shift b), but nothing happens!
