To access rp 3440 from console port.

Hi,

I have HP-UX server rp3440 with out VGA interface.
I want to restart this server in single user mode.
Can somebody tell me how to access the boot prompt thru console port.
Note : I do not have the dump terminal.

Can it be possible thru hyper terminal ?

Please suggest the solution.

Thanks in advance.

Regards

Varian

Hi,

Is your GSP webconsole configured?
If yes, then open a telnet session to the IP address of your GSP

If you don't have serial console you can use standard PC with hyper terminal etc. Should use the correct serial cable!

You can telnet the GSP IP if configured already. To configure the GSP IP you still need a serial access for first time.

Hi,
Connect a GSP combactable serial port to teh GSP and connect the other end to the PC or a laptop, use hyperterminal and access the console through it. Or else u can connect a cross cable to gsp and do a telnet to the GSP IP, as u are not aware of GSP I/P 1st option will be fine.

Boot up server, go to the CO menu. Interrupt PDC and give bo pri, then interact with ISL. At ISL prompt give hpux -is

The system will be booted from the primary path in single user mode.

By the way, Why do u need to bring the system in single user mode.

If the server is already booted u can issue init 1 to bring down the system in single user mode.

Re: To access rp 3440 from console port.

You are using right port. What are you settings on pc side for serial connection?? It should be as follows.

1. Bits persecond-- 9600
2. Data Bits -- 8
3. Parity -- none
4. Stop bits -- 1
5. Flow Control -- none or Hardware

Varian,

As u say, there are three cables, remote, console and ups, u have to use console, connect it with Serial cable, on com port of ur PC/Laptop, open hyperterm, select connect using com? port, on next screen set default, if will get some MP Login or GSP Login, or Console Login, If u Get MP/GSP Login then use Admin/Admin (Default)or as ur MP Password, at MP> type CO to get console login, then reboot the server, interrupt boot sequence, u will get promt like this,
main menu>
type boot pri isl,
yes,
isl> hpux -is, the server will go in single user mode,
cheers,

Hi RAC,

Thanks for the mail,

But the setting you have provided is not working.
Can I use UTP port with other end as 9 pin D-Connector to PC.

Thanks & Regards
