use a serial connection to check the server. normaly a sun has no graphical adapter and the in- and output is going over serial line.

o hes on a sparc so it won't even matter. Smilie

so you are thinking something like making sure the output-device is set to screen?

use serial cable to tip into server using a notebook. if the system s not in production, halt it to get the ok prompt. check the input/output device in the printenv setings and make sure its pointing to keyboard and screen. plug in the monitor and keyboard and power up the system.

Serial Console on a Sun or SGI System
And i make it, but zero signal, and orange led lihgt up after start.
