SAN Switch Storageworks 2/8 EL non responsive on Serial port

Hi guys,

 

I just found 2 spare SAN Switches Storageworks 2/8 EL in our lab, and I wanted to use it but need to change its IP address first.

 

However, I tried to connect through the serial port and none of them seem to respond. I used two differnet methods:

- using an old VT100 console sitting next to the switch, that we use to administer some HPUX box

- using PuTTy as an hyperterminal through another serial cable

 

Are there some special things I need to consider to finally access the management console ?

 

Thanks a lot in advance.

 

Xavier

Hi

Usually if you have the original cable it's best you have to connect with

Bits per second: 9600
■ Databits: 8
■ Parity: None
■ Stop bits: 1
■ Flow control: None

also I have found pins layout of connector

2  Tx data

3 Rx Data

5 Ground

7 CTS

it's all in the installation guide
