I ned to bring the Optional Com 2 port online. I have a cable and connector. I assume this is the port locatedc on the bottom left of the motherboard. I get resoruce conflicts in device manager for this device.

Re: ML310 G5 Optional Com2

Hi,

The conflict may be with the Virtual Serial Port/ BIOS Serial Console on the ILO2 which defaults to COM2 on the ML310 G5 model.

Go into the BIOS and disable the features on the ILO2 which use the com port. This should free it up for the operating system.

Here is a link to the ML310 G5 User Guide which should help. See section "Software and Configuration Utilities"

I hope this helps.

Re: ML310 G5 Optional Com2

Thanks for the input... I resolved the problem by removing the Com 2 port in device manager. Then it tried to ad (2) ports on the next boot-up. I removed the incorrect device and it worked.
