rx1620 console

Hi people,

Yesterday I got a new hp Integrity rx1620 server. Since then I'm trying to access it's console, without success.
The server has an MP card installed.
I connected vga monitor to it's vga port and a usb keyboard, but all I can see on the screen is a blinking "_".
I've also connected the CONSOLE cable of the MP card to a serial port of another SUN machine and tried to connect to it using "tip -9600 /dev/ttya" from the SUN, but all I get is "Link Down".

Do you have any ideas?

10x,
Max.

Hi Max,

The console cables is different with the one from SUN machines, perhaps you could find out is there any cables came with the server.
Part Number is 5184-1894

Prashanth,
Thank you for the reply.
I have already read this document - it doesn't work.

Sandy,
Thank you for your reply also.
I connected the serial cable that had come with the rx1620 to a standard serial cable and the standard serial cable to the sun machine. I think it should work....

Re: rx1620 console

Hi again,

Problem solved.
The vga wasn't working because the default console was the serial port.
The serial console wasn't working because of a cable problem.

Have a nice day,
Max.
