Re: rx8640 console access

Hi rp3440(Server Model) -:),

Is your server connected to a source
of AC power. The AC power must be checked for the proper voltage before the system is powered
up?

Re: rx8640 console access

Follow this procedure to power on your server.

1. Connect one end of a null modem cable (9-pin to 9-pin) to the RS-232 Local port on the core I/O card

2.Connect the other end of the RS-232 cable with your notebook.

3.Before powering up the server cabinet for the first time:

--> Verify that the AC voltage at the input source is within specifications for each server cabinet being installed.

4. To power on the MP, set up a communications link, and log in to the MP:

Apply power to the server cabinet.

On the front of the server, the MP Status LED will illuminate yellow until the MP is booted successfully. Once the MP is booted successfully, and no other cabinet faults exist, the LED will change to solid green.

5. Log in to the MP: Enter Admin at the login prompt. (This term is case-sensitive.)

It takes a few moments for the MP> prompt to appear. If the MP> prompt does not appear, verify that the laptop serial device settings are correct: 8 bits, no parity, 9600 baud, and None for both Receive and Transmit. Then try again.

Enter Admin at the password prompt. (This term is case-sensitive.)

The MP Main Menu is displayed

CM>PS and see the power status If every thing seems ok then CM>PE and power on the server.
