ALOM Not Responding to logins

I have a few servers that are all having the same problem when trying to login to their ALOMs. The are T2000's. When I go to login I get the login prompt, but some machines ALOMs aren't responding to the initial login:

Code:
 
# ssh xx.xx.xx.xx

Sun(tm) Advanced Lights Out Manager CMT v1.6.5
Please login:

You can't type anything after this. It just hangs, and never responds. I can't type the login user name. If I try typing in the login and hitting enter it still doesn't respond. Has anyone else ever experienced this?

Thanks in advance!

Through SSH. There is no serial access.

Does this still happen if you power cycle the machine? I do mean close down and remove the actual mains cables completely. When you reinsert the power only the SC will boot up to the "login". Same problem??

That's actually exactly what we're planning to do. I was just curious if others have run into this before, or knew of any work arounds without having to power off and pull the power cables.

Having to power off and pull power cables is a nightmare in a highly controlled environment.

thanks!

Have you checked that this isn't a known problem (since you have more than one of them). Look on the web to see if there's an OBP flash upgrade for T2000.
