Unable to login at the console: login fails because screen keeps scrolling

 

Hi!

 

At CO prompt I am unable to type root's password because login keeps timing out.

 

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

[xj412ds3155y] MP> co

 

At CO prompt I am unable to type root's password because login times out. Please see the attachment as png file.

 

To get the console to work I did "STTY -LCASE"  but it did not work .  I also removed  /etc/ioctl.syscon, but it did not make any difference.

 

I copied a copy of ioctl.syscon from a good, working blade server which did not solve my problem either.

 

Please advice how to resolve this issue if you can.  Thanks

Re: Unable to login at the console: login fails because screen keeps scrolling

found that "login timeout Value" was not set to zero and caused this problem. To Navigate and change settings, go to:
->sam
->auditing & Security
->System Security Policies
-> Terminal Security Polocies
->Login timeout Value
and set it to zero
