Unable to go to OBP from SunFire v210

Unable to go to OBP from SunFire v210

Post by Cathy Hu » Thu, 12 May 2005 07:18:02

My SunFire V210 has been having a problem to boot up appropriately.
Therefore, I tried to get to the OBP prompt and hopefully I can boot it
up as single-user mode to see what happened to this system.

Here is what I have tried:

1) from the SC console, type poweroff and poweron and then type reset.
Then I type console.  When I am seeing the OS is being boot up, I
issued the Ctrl+Break to try to go to the OBP.  Looks like the system
got the signal, but unable to break.  Here is what I see from the
console --> SC Alert: SC Request to send Break to host.
SC Request to send Break to host.

2) to start up the system in a normal way, i.e. poweron the system,
wait to see the system is being boot up.  This time, I type break from
the SC prompt.  Same thing.  --> Are you sure you want to send a break
to the system [y/n]? y
SC Alert: SC Request to send Break to host.

My question is:

How do I make this V210 to release it's OBP?  so that I can type "boot
-s" on it.

Please advise, thanks!


1. Unable to go to OBP from SunBlade 1600's


I have a host on a Blade 1600's which cannot be booted up
appropriately.  I tried to go to the system's OBP in order to boot it
up in a single user mode.

then "poweron s4", once it's powering on, it will go straight to the
regular boot sequence.  Even I tried to interupt with "break -y s4"
from the sc console.  It still does not do anything.

Anyone can give me some light on this?  thanks in advance.
