Resetting MP from root on on HP-UX

Is it possible to reset the MP from root?

 

I changed the IP address and it kicked me off before i could do and XD. Now it will not let me back in. I am remote to the site at the moment and I am wondering if it is possible to reset the MP from root.

 

System: rx3600

OS: HP-UX 11.31

Hi Timothy,

did you try if the GSP reset works? I'm not sure if it works for the mp but perhaps worth a try.

 

for i in $(ls/dev/GSP*)
do
stty +resetGSP <$i
stty +queryGSP <$i
done

Re: Resetting MP from root on on HP-UX

I don't think you will have /dev/GSP* devices on a rx3600 - pretty sure those were only found on older N and L class systems...

 

Tim, I think you may be out of luck here - I'm pretty sure the only way to reset an MP on these systems is to actually press the reset button on the MP board (for less than 4 seconds if you don't want it to reset to a default configuration). You could at least see what IP address the MP _thinks_ it has by running:

 

 /opt/propplus/bin/cprop -detail -c "Management Processor"

Thanks for your help!!!

I will have to go on site and use the console.

Not sure how this new "Kudos!" stuff works yet so I appologize for giving you a 1, it won't let me give you any more.

Hi again,

for the 'Kudos' i found the following topic: http://h30499.www3.hp.com/t5/Community-Feedback-Suggestions/Kudos-what-where-how-and-why/td-p/1155262

 

You can give only one, as far as I got it until now - so it should go only to Duncan.

 

Best,

Stephan

Re: Resetting MP from root on on HP-UX

Thanks Stephan,

 

There is no GSP anything in the /dev directory on my rx3600. Duncan's command help me figure out what the MP was actually  still set at.

 

Some how this post is still showing you and Duncan with 1 kudos each. I will leave it like that and see what happens. My feeling is that any one that answers my post with any sort of help at all should get some sort of recognition for it!

>did you try if the GSP reset works?

 

I didn't think "stty +resetGSP" would work for any Integrity servers?

You should try to connect to the system management homepage and get the MP IP address from there.


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.
