Re: no display on console

Hello,

Since that is a workstation, you actually need a monitor to have full capabilities for CDE. However, you can connect your console to the COM1 port of your C3600 to get a normal text-only access.

Do not forget to run your C-Class in run-level 3, not 4. Vi /etc/inittab.

HTH,

Re: no display on console

Hi,

Once other item.

You may need to reset the terminal back to the default settings to get it to work. From memory hold down the 'd' key (could be control-D) when powering off/on.

Re: no display on console

Micheal,
I did that but still could not get messages on the console.

I have this problem with one or two machines.

Is there something I should do on the display setting on the machine.

Thanks

Re: no display on console

Hi

There is no terminal configured by default in HP-UX, you need to create one using SAM (or manual). Check the file /etc/inittab for a line like:
a0:3:respawn:/usr/sbin/getty -h tty1p0 9600

Re: no display on console

sounds as if you have the 70096 connected to SERIAL1 and it is working but not getting any console messages on it but they're displayed on the Graphics? Is this accurate?

You won't get boot messages to the Serial Console unless you change the console path from graphics to the serial path. By adding the inittab entry, you'll be able to login... but won't see console messages.

If you shutdown the box, disconnect the system's keyboard and mouse, the system will default to serial1 when booted up.

To verify/change the console path, interrupt the boot. type "HElp PAth CONsole" for info.

Hope this helps,
