Re: hp unix server problem

Hi Mahesh,

Did you tried to connect go GSP/MP

when you are prompted for the GSP username, just hit and do the same thing for the GSP password. Many people don't realize that the password is not set by default. I hope that this helps.

Also check for GSP card status...

Re: hp unix server problem

hi,

check the model, for example in some servers in our datacenter we don't have the MP/GSP, and them you need to connect directly to the serial port and use a special key, to access the console.

Re: hp unix server problem

Shalom,

A fault light could indicate a hardware fault of major software crash.

You could try a power off power on, depending on the problem that might get you going.

Better is to connect to the console bet it GSP/MP or a direct serial connect to the console port with a null modem cable.

Re: hp unix server problem

Was your terminal console worked ealier with same console cable?
Probably it connected through wrong cable. Why donâ t you try to connect through GSp/MP

Re: hp unix server problem

The red LED indicates a major problem, the server is probably not up and cannot show you anything on the console.

Inspect the system and console log for more information, e.g.

MP> sl

Hope this helps!

Torsten.
