rx2620 no Console on VGA port when serial console is configured. HP-UX 11.23

I have an rx2620 that dosn´t give Output console on VGA port (KVM) when booting up Operating System (HP-UX 11.23).

The following message is displayed on the VGA KVM monitor:
Console is on a Serial Device.
No further output will appear on this output device.

This are the FW versions of the server:
MP FW: E.03.32
BMC FW: 04.04
EFI FW: 05.48
System FW: 04.29

when checking the values on the NVRAM, everything seems to be ok. (Boot Manitenance Menu):
Primary output:VGA
Secondary output:Vt100+ (iLO MP) and Vt100+ (splitter cable).

For the console output device (selected):
* Acpi(PNP0501,0)/Uart(9600N81)/VenMsg(Vt100+)
* Acpi(HWP0002,700)/Pci(1|1)/Uart(9600N81)/VenMsg(Vt100+)
* Acpi(HWP0002,700)/Pci(2|0)

Leaving just VGA output (none Vt100+), save settings to NVRAM and reset the system: the video appears on the KVM

I need to have the Vt100+ Outputs configured.
What can i do to get back the console on boths: serial output and VGA output?

Thanks in advance for your helpfull information.
Saludos,

"Console is on a Serial Device."

Well, hp-ux can only handle 1 console and IMHO the best choice is to use the MP device (otherwise you cannot have remote access to the console).



But you may consider to use the VGA as a graphics terminal (not the system console).

Hope this helps!
