Re: how to display the console via DVI interface

There is a VGA connector only, but no DVI, right?

However, this is set via EFI conconfig command.

But keep in mind, once the console is on VGA, you no longer have MP console access!

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: how to display the console via DVI interface

Hi ,
use conconfig then to only return VGA and serial port without DVI, if it needs to do others configuration ?

Re: how to display the console via DVI interface

IMHO the better option:

Leave the console on serial, doing this you have remote access.
Enable Xwindows on VGA, so you have a "normal" Xdesktop available.

Hope this helps!

Re: how to display the console via DVI interface

IMHO there is no DVI connector on this server!

(expect you have any additional card, but then you cannot redirect the console to it)

Hope this helps!
