I'm trying to book a V240 Sun Server.
Have a PC connected to the console management & am connected via Hyperterminal.
It goes so far once I switch it on & press the button (see below) but I'm not getting to the ok prompt where I type in boot -s. Any ideas?

I get the following on Hypterterminal screen & then it stops:

"Configuring system memory & CPU(s)
Probing system devices
Probing memory
Probing I/O buses
Probing system devices
Probling memory
Probing I/O buses
C"

Have tried <Ctrl> + <Break> at this stage but only get "SC Alert: SC Request is send Break to host" and it goes no further.

check the settings for serial console from OK prompt:

printenv

to set these variables use

setenv input-device ttya
setenv output-device ttya

then try booting again

are you connecting to the DB-9 port or RJ-45 port?

1) Connect to Serial MGT
2) Press Enter.
If no output, try switch from Console to ALOM. Press #.
3) To reset parameters to default:
sc> bootmode reset-nvram
sc> reset
