Re: HPUX 11i v3 Login Problem on the console

Shalom,

Here is a document on how to set up or reset console login on an rx2660 server.


http://docs.hp.com/en/AB419-9005A/AB419-9005A.pdf

A simple power off reboot will likely resolve the login issue, but its a bad idea.

Better is what you are trying, which is to get console access and do a more controlled problem diagnosis and system restart.

It is a great doc, with a picture, telling you where to connect the cable and everything. Best thing to do is ctrl-b into configuration and get it a network address so you can connect to it using X terminal or your chosen ssh client.

Re: HPUX 11i v3 Login Problem on the console

Shalom again,

My document refers to a second document:

http://docs.hp.com/en/AB419-9000C/index.html

Which tells you how to configure the console.

Still together, the documents will do the trick.

I really wish like some of the forums I administer privately ITRC gave me the chance to revise my answer after the pea brain molecules kick in.

Hi,

Strange. Are you using valid username and password?

Are you able to login through network with that account?
Best wishes,

Ganesh.

Are you at the MP login? Try the default:

MP login: Admin

MP password: Admin

Hope this helps!

"...the system gets me back to the login prompt without asking me for a password...."

Do you use hyperterminal with ansi emulation? This could be the problem. Try vt100 or better use putty.

Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Re: HPUX 11i v3 Login Problem on the console

Hi Tors,

Iam connected my display to VGA and USB key board attached instead of serial cable.

So it is clear instead of serial/vga iam using VGA and it works fine before.

Now the present situation is iam getting error as CONSOLE LOGIN repeatedly without asking for password.

I tried Admin/Admin and root user as well

That is nice but you might not get full function. Better to use this to set up a network console login.

There is in the excellent documents I posted earlier a procedure to reset the console to factory defaults which will get you Admin/Admin login

>>Console has nothing to do with the OS. There is no root user and this is intentional.

To be blunt, its RTFM time. The documents I provided earlier provide a solution, should you take the time to read them.

Why its not working in vga/keyboard mode is not helpful. It is not. You apparently do not know the password or the terminal emulator you are using is messing it up.

So time to read the manual.

Good luck,
