MP unreachable on RX2620

 

MP unreachable on RX2620

Hi,
I lost the password to the MP login so pressed the MP reset button to start from scratch. I'm now unable to access the MP, nor from a Terminal at 9600 nor from a direct connected pc. The Terminal is connected via the 8 pins console Y cable connector. The PC is connected via a switch and has ip address 192.168.1.2
I have no info on the Mac adress of the MP.
How should I get access?

Re: MP unreachable on RX2620

Once you have "reset" MP password, use the MP ->Login to get Mac address

MP MAIN MENU:

CO: Console
VFP: Virtual Front Panel
CM: Command Menu
CL: Console Log
SL: Show Event Logs
HE: Main Help Menu
X: Exit Connection

MP> CM

MP:CM> ls


LS

Current LAN Configuration:
MAC Address : 0x00306e3aabdc
IP Address : 16.110.80.118
MP Host Name : abcdserver-c
Subnet Mask : 255.255.252.0
Gateway Address : 16.110.80.1
Link State : Auto Negotiate
Web Console Port Number : 2023

Hi Johnson,

Thanks for your reply but this is a RX2620 which is a Itanium server and not PA-Risc.
I can press the MP reset button and press enter within 5 seconds but nothing happens.

Re: MP unreachable on RX2620

Press the reset button on the rear aspect of the card. The interface will reset and you will be given a 5 second oportunity to press "p". This will reset all passwords to "blank"

Re: MP unreachable on RX2620

Hi Michiel,

Setup a serial connection to the MP/ILO serial port using a 5184-1894 (HP RS-232C serial cable - 9-pin (F) to 9-pin (F)) with a putty or HyperTerminal serial connection with following configuration.

Speed (baud) 9600
Data bits 8
Stop bits 1
Parity None
Flow control XON/XOFF

Login:Admin
Password:Admin

Hi,

Normally you have to press the MP button like you do, try again.

Re: MP unreachable on RX2620

Gentle people,

Thanks for the replies.
It looks like I first have to resolve the problem that I get no reply whatsoever from the serial connection. I use a original HP terminal and cable, which have worked before.
Maybe I'll have to wait until I can reboot the machine in a maintenance window so I can change the console settings.

Re: MP unreachable on RX2620

Gentle people,
Finally the server was rebooted with a power off/power on, after which the terminal was resetted. Now I got the message "Press p to..." after pusing the MP reset button.
All works fine again now.
Thanks again for all your replies.
