Is it safe to reset GSP console ?

Hello All,

Is it safe to reset GSP console using the follwing method ?

stty +resetGSP < /dev/GSPdiag1

Has anyone tried and succeeded? Please let me know if you have any other methods of resetting console other than "reset" button?

Thanks much,
Arun

Hi,
Yes it is save, we used it in the past with succes.
Be sure nobody is running a shell using the console.

I think your methodology will work.

As will logging into GSP via serial or web console with ctrl-b and using commands to reset.

Hi,
You can reset the GSP from the part of behind of the machine
there is a small button that says GSP reset.

YOu dont have problem to reset the gsp.
YOu only lose the configuration that you already had and wil have the default configuration.

You might want to look at your logs and make sure you have not had any hardware failures just in case something has failed, but the reset of a GSP is pretty safe. It does happen, but I would be wondering what locked GSP up. Good luck.

Re: Is it safe to reset GSP console ?

Hello,

Thanks for the document, I have read and obscure abt two things,

1) I am using 11.11 rp2470 (PA-RISC), Document says 11.0 , Will it conflict ?

2) I am clear abt this line "Be sure to press the "P" key while entering the command"

Please can you clarify ?

Hi,

Yes you can use the same command to reset the GSP for 11.0 as well as 11.11.

Pressing the P key on the console while resetting the GSP will clear the GSP admin password. The admin password would be set to NULL (No Password).

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the reply. I am not sure, How to press "P" in Console. BTW, I use putty to connect console and work from there. Can you please clarify this ?

Re: Is it safe to reset GSP console ?

How are you accessing console through Putty. Are you using console consolidator. Telnet to the server will give you a telnet prompt and not console login prompt.

Hi

You can safetly reset GSP , if you are not able to do with command prompt , there small button on the back plane of server to reset the same.

Hi Arun,

RP2470 has the GSP reset switch on the rear side of the server. You can easily reset from there...

Re: Is it safe to reset GSP console ?

From my experience, I have never had a problem resetting the GSP if it is an "A" revision GSP. But, the 5 or 6 times I have had to reset a "B" revision GSP, it has crashed the system. Tried it several times on multiple test systems after a production system crashed the first time I tried it here.
