How to login to the MP console.

I have a new server which does not have a monitor console and keyboard. I connected my labtop to the MP lan port on the server but get nothing on my laptop running XP. What do I have to do to get the MP login screen. I do show the light blinking on the MP lan port so I think it is working. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Re: How to login to the MP console.

To configure HyperTerminal in Windows

a. From the desktop screen, click Start, Programs, Accessories,
Communications, HyperTerminal. The Connection Description window
is displayed.
b. Enter a name for the description, and click OK. The Connect To window
is displayed.
c. Select the Communication Port that is connected to the KVM switch
through a serial cable, then click OK. The COM1 Properties window
is displayed.
d. Select 9600 for the Bits Per Second, 8 for Data Bits, None for Parity, 1 for
Stop Bits, and None for Flow Control, then click OK. The HyperTerminal
auto-connects to the console switch.
e. Press the Enter key to access the console switch option menu.

Hi,

Once you logon thru the serialport-hyperterminal you can configure the IP address for the MP - LAN by

MP>CM

MP>CM>LC

One more info,

The default IP address for the LAN port on the MP is 192.168.1.1

You may telnet using this IP from any system which is configured in this network.

Siva.

Hola Juan,

Read the following:
http://www.docs.hp.com/en/A7137-96001-en/A7137-96001-en.pdf
Chapter 4

You need to configure the MP, before you can install the server.
You can either configure the com-port or attached a laptop to the server with a cross-cable. Configure the ILO-Lan port with a ip-address, based on the MAC-address.

Re: How to login to the MP console.

Hi Juan,

Connect your laptop to the MP lan port using cross cable.
Change the ip address of your laptop to be on the same subnet as of MP(192.168.0.*)
From your laptop do a telnet to the MP ip address.
It will prompt you for the username/password
default will be Admin/Admin.

Regards
