Re: how to change vga to cli mode setting again on console.

What server model do you have?

 

However, the most likely solution:

 

Boot to EFI shell and run "conconfig" to set either the MP serial connection as console.


Hope this helps!

Re: how to change vga to cli mode setting again on console.

Connect to the serial MP connector.

 

Until the OS has booted, the POST and EFI output goes to all kind of output (serial and VGA).

 

If you see the boot menu, use arrow keys to select EFI. After a few minutes you will get an EFI prompt.

 

Now you can run "conconfig" to reconfigure the console.

 

However, you should see the same on the VGA screen.


Hope this helps!

Re: how to change vga to cli mode setting again on console.

How did you change from serial to VGA?

Get a serial null modem cable and connect with 9600 baud.

If the MP is configured for LAN access, you can do the change from LAN too.

Hope this helps!
