rx5670

I am trying to get to the main menu so I can try and load os.I changed the emulation to hpterm on the core I/O and I have it on hp on my console.When it gets to the efi menu it is all over my screen.This model is new to me and I was wondering if I am missing something.Any help in getting this setup is appreciated.

Thank you

Jon

Re: rx5670

I suspect that EFI is presuming a vt100-like terminal rather than an HP-like terminal. So, run something like xterm or dtterm instead of hpterm.

While the rx5670 is (IIRC) no longer on the CPL, I would hope the manuals are still there on docs.hp.com.

(BTW, the rx5670 is an "Integrity" server not an HP 9000 :)

Re: rx5670

Hi,

I guess you tried setting the terminal type as "hpterm" through MP > CA and set the the terminal connected at MP serial port to "hpterm". This will work good till you are using MP Interface, but it won't work in EFI Interface ( MP > CO ) as expected.

The EFI doesn't support "hpterm". It supports "PcAnsi" "Vt100" "Vt100+" "VtUtf8" terminal emulations. One can select the appropriate emulation for console output device through EFI "boot option maintenance menu".

Hence it is required to set the terminal type/emulation to "vt100" through MP > CA if you are using (or moving from MP to EFI) a comman terminal for both.
If you choose MP serial port as console, then HP recommends you choose a Vt100+ capable terminal device. Saying that, set "vt100" in MP and use "vt100+" capable terminal or terminal emulation software to work both MP and EFI interfaces correctly.

Refer following links as well.

Dear Jon,

only VT100 is supported emulation in EFI.

All other emulations dosent dislplay properly-even using eny 3rd party tools.

With Regards,

Siva.
