I have Sun Fire V120. It has 2 serial ports. Port A is also LOM (Lights Out
When I connect server's port A to a laptop with terminal program all I get
is messages that server prints during boot/shutdown but I cannot type
anything. It' just like RX works, and TX doesn't ?
I tried with many console cables: Sun's original console that's converted
from 25-pin to a 9-pin console suitable for laptop serial port. I also tried
Cisco's original console cable. Same thing every time.
I also tried many terminal programs (SecureCRT, Minicom, Hyperterminal etc).
They were set: 9600 8N1, "no flow controle" or "Xon/Xoff".
Serial port B doesn't seem to be configured because I cannot see anything on
it (not even boot messages when server is rebooted).
So right now, I cannot access server because telnet doesn't accept root
login and root is only real user defined on system.
Has anybody seen this kind of faulty serial port ?
What can I do ?
