understand console outputs

hi,

 

i've got an rx1600

1 x rs232

1 x management port

1 x vga

 

when i use the boot configurator to change the console output to

 

1 x rs232

(P) 1 x management port

(S) 1 x vga

the os doesn't boot stating that multple outputs are selected.

 

when i output to just the MP i can't use the vga screen attached.

 

what am i missing here?

 

is it possible to use the VGA and still have write access over the MP?

 

cheers.

Re: understand console outputs

You can have ONLY 1 console - either VGA or MP!

Hope this helps!

Re: understand console outputs


i understand that there is only one console output but i thought the point of the mp was to be able to use the console. so i thought i would be able to set as 2ndary and ctrl+e+c+f to get write access via the MP.

Re: understand console outputs

A secondary console is standard for the EFI environment, but HP-UX supports the primary console only.

 

Set it to MP!

 

You can still use VGA as a X-terminal, but if VGA is the console, you cannot use the MP console.


Hope this helps!

Re: understand console outputs

Use this to use VGA as a X-terminal:

 

Check /etc/dt/config/Xservers.
If last line is commented out as follows:

# * Local local@console /usr/bin/X11/X :0

remove '# ' and restart dtlogin:

# /sbin/init.d/dtlogin.rc stop
# /sbin/init.d/dtlogin.rc start

 

 

[edit]

 

At least for me the format is bad, hence here is it again:

 

Check /etc/dt/config/Xservers.
If last line is commented out as follows:

# * Local local@console /usr/bin/X11/X :0

remove '# ' and restart dtlogin:

# /sbin/init.d/dtlogin.rc stop
# /sbin/init.d/dtlogin.rc start


Hope this helps!
