Cisco 2901 console to HP proliant G6 not working

Hi All,

 

I'm having difficulty trying to console in,via cisco 2901, to a remote HP proliant G6 server through its serial port.

 

Connection is like this :

 

Cisco 2901/EHWIC#1/Port 10 -> patchpanel -> (RJ45->Serial) HP Prolient 380 G6

 

I understand from the output below that cisco 2901 is not clear to send.

 

cisco2901#

Line 0/1/10,

Length: 24 lines, Width: 80 columns

Baud rate (TX/RX) is 9600/9600, no parity, 2 stopbits, 8 databits

Status: Ready

Capabilities: EXEC Suppressed, Output non-idle

Modem state: Ready

Modem hardware state: noCTS noDSR  DTR noRTS

 

My question is how can I confirm the serial port have the right settings and its operational.

 

Server is running Red Hat linux.

 

Many Thanks

No idea about this cisco connection, but why not ssh into the server or use remote console via ILO?


Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Hi Torsten,

 

We can ssh to the server but we recently had an issue where we were not able to ssh and we dont have a ILO licence for this server.

 

Thanks

Re: Cisco 2901 console to HP proliant G6 not working

2 stopbits sounds unusual, and "modem" looks strange too. Sure you can do this with your cisco?

 

If this is your setup

 

http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/routers/access/2900/hardware/installation/guide/Hardware_Installation_Guide/Install_Connect.html#49864

 

it won't work, because that way you access the console of the switch.


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

You can use the iLO VSP (Virtual Serial Port) with the standard license.  This guide should provide you with everything you need.

the Trial License
