A500 GSP RESET

Will a reset of the GSP back to defualts, reboot the OS side of the server? I have two servers that I don't know the 'Admin' passwd, and want to reset the GSP.

Thanks,

Re: A500 GSP RESET

Dan,

Resetting the GSP will not reboot the OS. If the firmware is too out of date, resetting the GSP will not reset the passwords. I had to slip paper between the gsp battery and terminal for a minute to clear to defaults on a few systems.

HTH,

Reset GSP and keep D pressed.
If you want to soft reset
stty +resetGSP /dev/diag1
(/dev/diag1 -- gsp device file)

Re: A500 GSP RESET

I used a paper clip and reset the GSP from the back, and hit 'p' to reset passwds when asked. I did check and found I was on Rev. A, which some folks implied that Rev. B might cause a panic on the OS.......

thanks,
