V-Class with B180L Workstation

Does anyone know what lights the AUI ports on the V-Class, path 15/3? In ioscan, it has a "unknown" for a driver and the transceivers are not lit that attach to the DART cables. Those ports directly connect to the backplane, which has been changed. Is it the configuration files on the workstation side that ignite a signal to them? Any help would be appreciated.

Shalom,

http://docs.hp.com/en/hw.html#V-Class%20Server

All documentation on what is there, what the slots are capable of is on that site.

Re: V-Class with B180L Workstation

There is no where I can find from all the documentation you sent me that answers my question. What enables the AUI port on LAN 1?

Re: V-Class with B180L Workstation

First off I'm sorry I don't have much info.

I have never touched these aui ports you are talking about. They hook to the console. The console has a program that is always looking at them. There is a network connection that is just between the test station and the vclass box.

I have a vclass that has been off for a number of years. I was smart enough to keep ioscan.

Re: V-Class with B180L Workstation

I have an old ioscan as well from a previous V2500, and they show that interface as being UNCLAIMED as well. Are you sure they used to light up prior to the backplane switch?
My recollection was that they always showed up as UNCLAIMED under the OS, but potentially were used while HP-UX was not running on the V, to do low-level console type stuff.
