iLO 100 readonly access only? Why?

Hi, I have successfully configured many iLO serial port redirections, now however I do have a problem: my serial console is somehow read-only. I cannot type anything. I see all the output (grub, linux boot, agetty) but my input is ignored.

I have the newest fw (4.21) on Proliant DL 120 G6.

PS: I run it with 115200 bps

Hi Ernest,

Hope it has been configured correctly

ROM-Based Setup, press the F10 key

Press the down arrow (â  ) key to scroll to IO Device Configuration .

Press the Enter key.

Set Embedded Serial Port Mode to BMC .

Set Embedded Serial Port to Enabled .

The Virtual KVM / Media option is an advanced feature available through license.

DL120 G6 servers, verify the following settings:
Console Redirection
â  BIOS Serial consoleâ  Enabled
â  Baud Rate-9600
I/O Device Configuration

If nothing helps, reset the LO100 configuration with IPMI tool and try.

Re: iLO 100 readonly access only? Why?

Hi Ernest, did you ever manage to solve this problem?

I have the same model and the same issue: the serial seems "one way" only. I can see the output but I can't interact, so login is impossible!

Thank you.
