Is it possible to Manage Sun Fire v60 without using Red Hat?

I've been trying to enable a console connection via an Avocent dongle connected to the serial port using these directions:

All I've been able to view is the BIOS output, and the grub menu; I am unable to control anything.



Is it possible to manage a Sun Fire v60x without using a Red Hat server to issue power/status commands?


Thank you.

    Hi.
    Serial console support only text mode. So can freasing after server change mode to graphics.


    For manage server You can read:
    http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/E19088-01/v65x.srvr/817-2025-13/chap1.html#pgfId-1014396

    ...
    Lights Out Management (LOM)
    The Intel Server Management (ISM) software is a set of applications and agents for monitoring and managing servers. The agents can act as low-level stand-alone pieces, or can be used in conjunction with full-featured integrated management suites.
    ....
    Available features include power on, power off and reset. System Event Logs (SELs) and Sensor Data Records (SDRs) can be viewed remotely.
    ......

    IMHO: It's very old server and remote control of it not user frendly.
