How to access BIOS with serial console on DL360G3

The server is running Linux. I am trying to enter BIOS during bootup. Press F10 won't work while I am using serial console. Need help.

Thanks.

Hello David,
Please connect the keyboard directly to the port on the server and then try accessing the System Partition. I doubt it if you can access it with the Serial Consol.

That's what I am afraid to hear. Server is in a remote data center and serial console is what available. That means access BIOS is almost impossible.

Thanks for your reply anyway.

David,
I would recommend looking at:
ftp://ftp.compaq.com/pub/products/servers/management/smartstart/bios-serialconsole.pdf

This machine uses the Rom Based Setup, which allows you to use the serial console.

Another option for this machine would be to get the advanced pack for the ILO and use the graphical console from the remote location.
The truth is out there, but I forgot the URL..
