ALOM - Console -

Hello forum,

I have a SUN v250 at home that I have to practice Solaris. I currently have Solaris 9 installed and the ALOM Sun(tm) Advanced Lights Out Manager 1.5.2.
From the ALOM I want to access the console.


Code:
sc> console -f
Enter #. to return to ALOM.

after that there is no response. Unless and until hit #. to get back to the ALOM.

I did this via serial cable, and by Network Mgnt Port both with the same result.

Any ideas how to get into console from ALOM?

Thank you in advance.

Probably your server is not powered on (except for ALOM). Try executing poweron in ALOM and then console -f .

It's possible that Solaris hanged for some reason... You can try sending "break" signal by executing break in ALOM and then console -f . It should get you to "ok" prompt.

Here's what happened when I issued the break command.


Code:
sc> break
Are you sure you want to send a break to the system [y/n]? y
sc>
SC Alert: SC Request to send Break to host.

SC Alert: Failed to send email alert for recent event.

sc> console
Enter #. to return to ALOM.
sc>
sc> console -f
Enter #. to return to ALOM.
sc>

The machine then does not respond. It remains at that screen until I press "#." it then returns me back to the sc> promt

I am not sure if this makes much of a difference but the rshell and ssh is enabled and I am able to ping, and ssh into the machine.

What I am trying to achieve here is to be able to console into the machine from the ALOM port or the net management port.
Are there any other configurations that I should be aware of?
I setup the ALOM conf by using "setupsc"

Thank you for your help.

You can try this: resetsc . After few minutes ALOM should be restarted and you can try to access console again.

Nope it still hangs after I log into the system.
I am unable to get any kind of prompt after issuing the "console -f" command.
