Comm port for a modem doens't work on DL360 G5

We have a strange problem. The comm port is available in the hardware overlist list of our windows 2003 (SP2) server. But when we want to add a modem to this port the com1 port is not visable.

How can we activate the comm port? according to the hardware overview it is active on IRQ4 and address 03F8-03FF

I disabled the virtual comm ports in the bios. But this doesn't solve it.

Thanks for you input, this is a really big problem for our bussiness.

Check if the iLO-2 serial interface is not taking over the serial connection.

From the iLO-2 web interface, goto

- Administration
- Settings
- Access
- Options tab

Check the setting of 'Serial Command Line Interface Status'

HTH,
