Re: Console for itanium


hpux and openvms by default will use serial port as main console.

you can continue installation by connect to your MP of the server. Look at the rear of the server and you will one LAN port (rj45) with label 'lan console' or something.

You will also find a label which indicate mac address for the lan console.

now, get you mp connect to your lan network and perform the following from any pc in the same network. Assign a unique ip address for the lan console!

c:\ arp -s 00-aa-00-63-d8-04

Confirm the arp table
c:\ arp -a

ping the lan console to check lan connectivity

if there are replies, you can telnet to mp or use you IE to connect to MP. In IE, enter the ip address at the address bar.

When you reach MP, default user name is Admin and password is Admin. Type co to access the main console.

good luck!

ps: really appreciate if you could assign some points, thanks!
