Rx2600 console redirection ? CO command

RX2600,OS is ux 11.31
latest Firmware is installed.

I can login to the MP and issue commands but Problem is getting to the console with the CO command the CO command has never been tried before,

the system is up and running fine , but would like to have remote console access in case ??

when i try, I get no password prompt just what you see below

I tried with command XD then R for reset,but still same issue.

(I believe the console is redirected but need clear steps to resolve the issue .)

MP> CO

[Use Ctrl-B or ESC-( to return to MP main menu.]

------ Prior Console Output -----


--------Live Console------


I found this post but it appears to be for VMS

http://h30499.www3.hp.com/t5/Integrity-Servers/rx2600-iLO-remote-console-amp-OS-Boot/m-p/5266925#M10806


I also noted the last person wrote
The console now displays VMS as well as MP signals. Seems to work fine!

My second question
can the console display both from one port
that is the OS and MP ??

Does any one have a screen shot of this option ? can it also be done with UX or is it , specific to the different operating systems

Re: Rx2600 console redirection ? CO command

The console is either on serial or on VGA - it cannot be on both.

Do you use VGA as console device?

Hope this helps!

Re: Rx2600 console redirection ? CO command

Above I was using MP connection via ethernet using tenet,, I was not using serial or vga

There are 3 ways to connect as I understand

VGA and serial are local connections (mirrored only one can be used at a time)
but ILo can be used at same time as either one of these vga OR serial correct ?

IN the jpeg i have attatched it says

"vgA port it says EFI only/no ilo 2 MP access what does this mean ?"


Does VGA require a login or do i just cable up


with the serial port RS-232 com port connection and nothing else connected at all I can get to mp this way also but still have same issue cannot get to console,
I just get this error like before

MP> CO

[Use Ctrl-B or ESC-( to return to MP main menu.]

------ Prior Console Output -----


--------Live Console----

Question is it possible from MP to give a soft reset command via the MP so services shut down gracefully and not just crash ?

quetion when working corectly which of the above give full graphical interface with colour etc.

I know the vga
but what about connecting to ilo via web browser then possibly going to CO ?

points assigned for each answer feel free to make a seperate posts ##


thanks

Re: Rx2600 console redirection ? CO command

The serial console is mirrored via the network MP/iLO connection - but if you use VGA you cannot access the console from remote.


If the console is on VGA - it is not mirrored to another connection.

Hope this helps!

You cannot access the MP menu via VGA.

Hope this helps!
