How to switch between consoles.

Currently my default console is the serial port. I added a GSP card and a graphics card. The GSP and graphics cards display console messages till the point where this message is displayed.

............. (complete)
loading symbol table
loading System Directory (boot.sys) to MFS
....
loading MFSFILES directory (bootfs) to MFS
...........
Launching /stand/vmunix
SIZE: Text:25516K + Data:6293K + BSS:6913K = Total:38723K

After this the remaining display goes only to the serial console.

Is there a way to configure this so that the GSP and the vga can both display console messages?

Re: How to switch between consoles.

ok there is something more I need to do.. that doc only helps with EFI.. once vmunix starts everything is still redirected to serial. device. the VGA display shows..

"Console is on a serial device"
"No further output will be displayed here"

Re: How to switch between consoles.

Cannot do it individually either with any of these options in EFI...

HPUX>hpux -vga <- Boot on VGA
HPUX>hpux boot <- Boot serial port
HPUX>hpux -uart2 <- Boot on GSP
HPUX>hpux

Re: How to switch between consoles.

Restored everything to factory defaults...
now I can see the boot messages on the GSP by issuing this command.

HPUX> hpux -uart2

HPUX> hpux -vga still does not work..
but GSP is enough for me.
