booting of rx2600 servers

We have got new itanium rx2600 systems.We are not able to boot them up and moreover not able to see anything on our console.

When we power on the system the power LED is green, the System LED blinks orange but the front panel LEDs from 1-4 do not light up at all.

Also, we hear a buzzer when the system turns on.It gives a musical buzzer thrice and after that we hear 2 beep sounds.We are confused which sound to notice while trackingthe error - The continous buzzingmusic which comes thrice or the 2 beep sounds after that.

Plz help..Could any one guide us to connect the system to the console to see the output???

Thanks,
Deepak

Re: booting of rx2600 servers

Hi,

you need to connect console to the Management Processor (MP) on rx2600. The DB25 connector on the MP is a special connector for three serial interfaces (Console, Remote Console, UPS). These interface can be accessed via included adapter HP A6144-63001 (dongle cable DB25(Male)-3xDB9(Male)) and a standard serial cable (DB9(Female)-DB9(Female)) with assigments:

2 --- 3
3 --- 2
5 --- 5

All you need is cable and a PC.

Re: booting of rx2600 servers

Hi,

To boot up. What i can suggest, connect using Management Port and clear the logs of the server. Then it will boot.

Because if there are error on server then won't boot and would not give display . If it is new server then by default the display is set to MP port not to display.

If u are india call onn 1600112267.
Refer for itanium support they will guide you.
