GSP and serial console on J6750 issues

I have a J6750 rackmounted w/o keyboard/monitor but connected to a serial terminal server. I am able to watch reboots via the serial line, but I can't get into the GSP or login onto the system through the serial console after it comes up (or while it's running). How can I set this up for remote management and to be able to login through the tty console?
Humm... What does this shiny button do?

Hi Jay,

System is probably set up to have the console pathed to a graphics device that is or was there and the same with the KB.
All you need to do is:

1) Determine the HW path to the serial port you have the terminal attached to
2) Reboot the system & stop the autoboot
3) At the BCH prompt type BCH>path console hw_path and BCH>path keyboard hw_path
4) Check it with BCH>path console and BCH>path keyboard

That's it.

Rgds,
Jeff

Thanks - I'll give that a try. But one thing - does it have a GSP? I didn't see any /dev/GSP* devices configured on it.

Hi Jay,

Nope - GSP is for server class systems only.

BTW - In case you don't have it, here's the link to the J6700 series workstations

Re: GSP and serial console on J6750 issues

can't set the keyboard part :
Main Menu: Enter command > path console hw_path

ERROR: That path is not valid for that use. Your path has not been changed.
Possible paths are:
GRAPHICS(1)
GRAPHICS(2)
GRAPHICS(3)
PCI1
PCI2
PCI3
SERIAL_1
SERIAL_2

Main Menu: Enter command > path console serial_1

Console path: SERIAL_1.9600.8.none

Main Menu: Enter command > path keyboard serial_1

ERROR: That path is not valid for that use. Your path has not been changed.
Possible paths are:
PCI1
PCI2
PCI3
USB

What should I use for keyboard?
