Can't access my Sun X2270 Fire Server BIOS/ILOM

Discussion in 'Sun Hardware' started by Lothar Scholz, Mar 27, 2014.

  1. I just purchased two 2nd hand Sun X2270 Intel servers and i can't boot or access them. They have a Service Processor installed but i don't get any signal on VGA output.

    If i add an ethernet to the SP i see the cable network lights but can't access them and they don't show up in the DHCP in my (cheap AMV DSL home router). If the previous owner has set a fixed IP how can i reset the data. Reseting the CMOS did not help at all.

    I have unfortunately not a Seriell <-> RJ45 cable to use the console. But why does an attached VGA and USB keyboard not work to get into the BIOS/ILOM?

  2. VGA doesn't get you access to the ILOM, only to the system itself; you need
    to power it on using the front powerbutton.
