Let's start with the general server status, first.

If you can access the main menu of the MP, use the VFP command to check the server state. What does it say? (The Virtual Front Panel is a bit more verbose than the real one.)

If the server seems to be running normally (not running boot self-tests etc.), can you log into it through the network? If you can, is there any processes running on the "console" terminal? Run "ps -ft console" to check.

If there is just one process named "getty", all should be well. You can kill that process if you wish: init should automatically start a new one.

If "ps -ft console" lists several processes, there is an old terminal session still active on the console. It may have left the port in a weird state. Use "kill -HUP" to remove those processes, and getty should automatically restart.

If there are no processes running on the console, your system is either seriously sick (init isn't working properly) or someone has removed the console line from /etc/inittab. Look into /usr/newconfig/etc/inittab to see what it *should* look like.
