serial redirection not working on Centos 6
Posted on 2013-06-24
I cannot get the serial redirection to console to work in Centos 6. It works fine with Centos 5.
grub .conf has the following related with serial
serial --unit=1 --speed=115200
terminal --timeout=8 console serial
ro root=LABEL=/ console=tty0 console=ttyS1,115200n8
This is a Dell server which we enabled the serial redirection in the bios.
The terminal shows up and we can see the server. However, the keyboard will never work correctly. We type root as a login which works okay, but the password never works via the terminal. We can ssh into the box and use a login and password fine.
it seems that keyboard setting is not mapping correctly to the console. We are using VT100 and the bios uses VT100.
