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

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.
