Remote Console setup

When typing in lc at the GSP prompt, I am getting "Command can only be executed by System Admininstrator". Any suggestions

Re: Remote Console setup

GSP has an interface and commands that lets you create users. The creation process lets you decide whether the user is an admin user or not. Non-admin's can't do a whole lot except look at values.

I suggest the following:


back to console mode.


Log in as an admin user.

Re: Remote Console setup

You probably have security options enabled. As noted above, you will have to login as the "privilged" GSP user to be able to configure lan console.

If you dont have/remember the password, you can reset it in couple of ways

1) Pressing the GSP password reset switch at the back of the server
2) Executing the following commands while logged in as root in the console

# stty +resetGSP < /dev/GSPdiag1

press P to clear the passwords.

Re: Remote Console setup

And just a note: the "administrator" privilege is not assigned or associated with a particular name, it's just the first user created after the GSP is reset. Most sysadmins will use the name root or rootgsp or similar as the first GSP login.

Re: Remote Console setup

I ran: stty +resetGSP < /dev/GSPdiag1
and it came back with: GSP reset succeeded.
It did not allow me to hit P to clear passwords.
