GSP Reset

I have an L2000 with a GSP Rev A, running Firmware A1.06.

The only way I can log onto the GSP is with Enter/Enter, however this will not let me change the LAN IP with the LC command and I cannot create users with SO. It just says you need to be logged on as the administrator.

I have tried both the Reset button and the stty +resetGSP
Does anybody have any suggestions

Thanks

Re: GSP Reset

If on a LAN console then go to the local console where you should see more messages:

'Press R to Reset GSP to default values'

GSP reset does NOT reset login and passwords to default. So:

stty +resetGSP < /dev/GSPdiag1

-and look for the message-

Re: GSP Reset

Hi,

Press the GSP reset button and get back to the console ASAP and watch for the message about clearning the passwords. It only lasts about 10 seconds.

Cheers!!!

Re: GSP Reset

I thing everybody is missing the point in my first post.

I am logged in via the Lan and logged in as root, and I have a terminal connected to the GSP Serial Console.

The Serial console, lan connection and Server are all in the same room approx 2 feet apart.

I have tried the reset switch under the side cover, and issuing the stty reset command, neither of them bring any prompts up on the console screen to allow me to delete the accounts and passwords.

Re: GSP Reset

Hi,

Maybe this will help show what I meant in my previous post.

This is for GSP firmware rev A.1.09

Make sure you are at the GSP prompt on the console connected to the GSP.

1) Push the GSP Reset switch located on the Core IO board bulkhead.
2) After completion of GSP reset, you will get the password reset instruction on the console screen. If you will not respond to this, it will automatically quit the instruction. Here is the screen copy.

Firmware Revision A.01.09

Confirm you would like to clear passwords and users?(Y/[N]) y
All GSP Passwords and user information is cleared ***
GSP LAN and remote access are also disabled
Type Cntl-B to continue the GSP Command Interface


Hope it helps,


Cheers!!!

Re: GSP Reset

Sorry, I didn't describe the solution as clearly as I should have because you won't see this message from the LAN console. It only appears on the RS232 console port. Its an inherent defect. So again:

.... go to the local console where you should see more messages:

'Press R to Reset GSP to default values'

GSP reset does NOT reset login and passwords to default. So:

stty +resetGSP < /dev/GSPdiag1

-and look for the message-

Re: GSP Reset

Thanks for the info.

I understand what everybody is saying the prompt for password reset should appear on the serial console, not on the lan.

However nothing appears on the serial console no prompts of any kind indicating that the GSP has been reset.

I am right in front of the terminal when I press the reset button or issue the stty reset from within HP-UX. Nothing appears on the console so I cannot respond to a prompt that does not appear so therefore my user accounts and passwords are not reset, so I cannot log on to my GSP as admin to setup the GSP Lan to update the firmware from A.01.06.

Re: GSP Reset

Perhaps there is a bug with the firmware version of GSP you are running A.1.6 is very old. I beleive the latest A revision is A.1.12 and fixed many GSP problems.

Re: GSP Reset

That's what I thought, but because I can't login as administrator I cannot change the IP address to the GSP LAN, IP address is 127.0.0.1, which I guess is it's default.

Back to my original question how can I reset my GSP when both the Reset switch and stty (reset) don't appear to be working as they should.

Re: GSP Reset

You'll have to get the console working first. CTRL-B should bring up the GSP prompt. If not, I would suspect that you have a modem cable, not a terminal (crossover) cable between the terminal and the GSP console. Until the real console is working, you won't be able to truly reset the GSP to get rid of the administrator login and password. Requiring a 'real' console is about the only security that can be imposed from the GSP.

Re: GSP Reset

The console is a 700/92 Terminal I have the correct W cable and the correct Serial lead running from the console connection to the Terminal.

I can access the GSP with Ctrl B.

Anything else I should check in the terminal setup ?

Re: GSP Reset

Thanks to everybody for there suggestions I found a fix for the problem.

I removed the Button Battery from the GSP card for approx 15 / 20 minutes.

When I re-installed the Card it would allow me to run the SO command and create an administrative user.


Still haven't found out why the GSP Reset won't work I will update the firmware to see if that fixes the problem, but at least I can log on as administrator now and change the LAN settings.
