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.
I have pressed enter numerous times, still no luck. The host is powered on. I can ssh to the server and work on it.
I cannot work on any of the newly installed servers via this method. Just as a test I connected to an M5000 on the same network and I could successfully connect to the OS via XSCF.
