    X2-4 and X3-2: start /SP/console -f not showing output

    854959
      Hi all

      I've successfully installed a couple of X3-2 and X2-4 servers at a customer site. I used the ILOM web interface to access the console whilst on site.
      Now that I am not on site I need to use the ILOM cli method. The reason for this is because the bandwidth is too low to allow efficient use of the web interface.

      I attempted to start the console session by typing: start /SP/console -f
      I get the following output:

      -> start /SP/console -f
      Are you sure you want to start /SP/console (y/n)? y

      Serial console started. To stop, type ESC (

      No output is displayed after that until I stop/exit. I need to be able to work on the OS to make network changes so I cannot do it via ssh to the OS.

      The OS version is:

      Oracle Solaris 10 8/11 s10x_u10wos_17b X86

      Assistance with this would be highly appreciated.

      Regards
      Dean
