Please select partition number: 0

Connecting to Console: Partition 0
(Use ^B to return to main menu.)

Re: not able to access the mp console

Few things you can try

1) Ctrl-E-c-f
2) hit return few times - nothing to lose
3) vparstatus from the running vpar to see if the other vpar is sane and running normal
4) ping the vpar form the running vpar or PC
5) is that vpar in npar 0 or 1
6) is the os installed in that vpar

Re: not able to access the mp console

First I would check with vparstatus what the vPar is actually doing (up/down). Then I would telnet/ssh to the vPar and check if any process is running on the console (ps and grep for console).

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

dbnode vpar is up and running. I am able to connect to the vpar through ssh via some other server. But only as a ordinary user. When i do su - to root following error occurs


dbnode:druser-/home/druser>su -

Account is disabled - see Account Administrator
su: Sorry
dbnode:druser-/home/druser>



Thanks

Re: not able to access the mp console

Your root account is locked. Do you have a root equivalent user to enable user root again? Or have you ever used sam -r to give your named user the possibility to enable the root account?

Re: not able to access the mp console

when you ssh to your server with your user account, do a

#ps -ef | grep console

and take a look if there are any running process in the console. I they are but you can't kill them, you can try and connect to the mp, then to the [dbnode] and try to control-c , to interrupt the running process.
Windows?, no thanks

Re: not able to access the mp console

Well, you have a problem now. To unlock the account you need console access, but the console doesn't work...

You may still try to find out what process is running on the console, this may help.

For example, if sam or anythink is running, you may use CTRL L to refresh the screen and continue to work.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: not able to access the mp console

Forgot to say - if nothing helps, consider to reset the vpar and start in single user mode.

Hope this helps!

Torsten.
