Operating Systems AIX Installing via serial console Post 86235 by tb0ne on Wednesday 12th of October 2005 10:48:37 AM

The system is a P5.

After a good 6 hours of ripping my hair out, I finally got it. I think when the system was originally installed it was intalled with a head and a keyboard. I had to go into the ASMI (is that what it's called?), and reset to factory configuration. I then powered on, and got the banner screen where I could hit 1 to get to SMS settings.
