Please stay clear of the HSV maintenance port!

There is no command line interface - it is a primitive debug console. If you don't match the baud rate, you risk sending characters that can reboot one or both controllers or even hard-stop the entire storage array!

What do you mean by 'tunnelling information'?

Be forewarned, playing with the UART interface is NOT recomended.

Last time I had to connect to it, I believe I used the standard Brocade SAN Switch cable. What the parameters are as far as communications is concerned, I don't remember... It was late at night, the EVA was booting up in debug mode and I was on the phoen with HP Support in the wee hours of the morning.

If it is nothing that can be considered as illegal or damaging to HP, I would definitely call HP Support for assistance.
