GSP - can't enter console

Hi all,

i have a rx4640 running hpux 11.23

Currently, i cant enter to console. VFP show OS is running.

This is what i get. I press enter or Ctrl-ecf doesnt work.
MP> co
(Use Ctrl-B to return to MP main menu.)

i cleared SL and CL logs but still can't log in. Can anyone gurus out there can shed some light what went wrong and how can i enter to console?

Re: GSP - can't enter console

IMHO there are 2 possible reasons:

1) console is on VGA (check in syslog)

2) a hung process at the console (check with "ps")

Hope this helps!

I'm not sure you can trust that. Can you get any logon prompts other than the console? Or still connected with rlogin/ssh?

hi torsten,

Yes, you are right!

"System Console is on the ITE"

i dig in syslog and i found above. It should state as Serial.

Thanks a lot!

Re: GSP - can't enter console

Good news.

Next time you boot, use conconfig from EFI to adjust.

Finally have a look at this:
