    T5120 with a linux Kernel embedded in firmware

    faf191bc-9144-4551-baea-1a8bbbe231ce

      I need to re-purpose a T5120 (i.e., reinstall Solaris 10 & selected apps),  but in a previous life this box was apparently used as a SPARC based VM Manager; there is a small linux kernel which boots immediately upon connection to power (power button not pressed). I've found no way to interrupt or disable this process. Furthermore, after this firmware startup is complete, you're prompted for login credentials, which, of course,  no one can remember. 

      Using a laptop with CentOS 6.3 and minicom to "tip" in.

       

      I need to know what must be done to make this a "normal" T5120 one again.

       

      TIA
