Hmm, if i recall correctly you should just be able to power on the system with the power-button while being connected to the console, this will bring you to the ALOM login prompt, but after a minute or two you should get to the ok> prompt, so you can boot/reinstall Solaris and then reset the password with the scadm command..
If this does not work, try and remove the battery you just replaced for about 2 minutes, then i think it should timeout and you should be able to reach the ok> prompt..
thanks for quick reply. I connected to console and waited for a while, but I got:
Serial line login timeout, returns to console stream.
Enter #. to return to ALOM.
If I removed 3V battery from motherboard I got same output.
Is there some settings to disable ok promt?
If you get to the console stream you should be able to get to the OK prompt, did you power on the system using the powerbutton on the front of the system?

Yes, there is an option to disable direct access to the ok> prompt, but n that case you should get a password prompt or an error message, not a message that you are connected to the console stream..
I did following procedure:
1) shut down server, unplug power cords
2) remove 3V battery from motherboard
3) wait 2 or more minnutes and place battery back
4) power on server and waiting for ok promp
without success. Is this procedure correct?
Thanks a lot
It should.. Unless the system for some reason have a keyboard and a monitor..
Not exactly, this server, hasn't got graphic card. I have second V240 server with VGA card, but If I swapped it and connected monitor, I didn't get any signal to monitor ...
So I don't really know what I should do now.
