Re: HP-UX output on lcd monitor


Have you tried to use the EFI menu to select console output devices?

toggle the * for consout and conserr for the before last entry listed?

If you need further help, perhpas capture and share the output from
- EFI Boot Maintenance Manager
- Select the Console Output Device(s)
Attach as text file?

Good luck,
Hein.

Then you install CDE.

You don't reinstall, you install. It would help if you told us what you tried and what errors you got.

Shalom,

You see 11.31 does not install CDE by default. Makes it kind of hard to use the monitor. CDE is on the DVD for 11.31 and can simply be installed with an swinstall -i command and a few choices on the menu.

Re: HP-UX output on lcd monitor

hi thanks yup i dont have CDE installed in the machine. But the other concern is when i installed the cde-english the installation won't continue bacause of some of its patch is already installed.

i dont expect that the 11iv3 would be like this.

Can you show us the error messages? swinstall should always continue. It wouldn't install something if it was already there.

Re: HP-UX output on lcd monitor

Hi Gobi

Checked your Input and Output Devices in EFI

Example:

booting the Server will get the EFI (Extensible Firmware Interface)

Boot option maintenance menu <- select this one !

Select Active Console Output Devices <- select this one !
Select Active Console Input Devices <- select this one !

Select the Console Output Device(s)
* Acpi(HWP0002,700)/Pci(2|0) <- VGA - port

Select the Console Input Device(s)
* Acpi(HWP0002,0)/Pci(1|1) <- USB - Keyboard

Save Settings to NVRAM before you leave the window.

BR,

joelmel
