Trouble console in to Sunfire V490

would need some input for this issue.

console in to V490 either from a second Sun server from serial port or
through terminal.

I could only see the console message, couldn't type in anything.

output from eeprom is

output-device=ttya
input-device=ttya
diag-out-console false

The interesting thing is that as soon as I issue "reboot" command from
server, all the sudden I can type in, but only few seconds as server's
rebooting.

From SC console, after log into SC, after I issued command "console",
it just stuck there and no response.

some people says that for v490, console command on SC card is tricky,
as the key switch needs to be in Diagnose in order to get console
command working, is it true? If it is true what do I need for SC, if I
can't into console.

hope I state my problem clearly.

thanks in advance.

Can you log in via the alon network port on the back of the server?

Did you have a keyboard connected to the server?

If you can switch off the power, wait at lease 10 seconds, and switch back on will do the same.

Because of there was a keyborad plug in sometime ago, ALOM needs to be "reset" to fix the problem.

markelins,
your obp settings are wrong.
Set them as follows:
eeprom output-device=rsc-console
eeprom input-device=rsc-console

Open in new window

and connect to your serial SC port (tagged as "SER MGT" in the rear of the V490 server.) and it will work

To come back from the console to the SC prompt issue a

      #.

by the way, you may need to reboot for the console redirection to take effect... :-)
