Problem with serial console

Discussion in 'HP' started by Dave_the_rave, Aug 11, 2005.

  1. Hi

    I have a HP9000 E35 E-Class Server, I cannot get any prompt whatsoever.
    There is no graphics card and I'm using a
    8 Port MDP "Modem" Connected to a SCSI/PRINTER/APMUX16 Board have set my
    terminal to 8N1 9600 and tried both hardware and software handshaking to
    no avail. When the server is powered up there is activity of the "Link
    status" led on the modem during boot up. There is some drive activity that
    sounds like it's booting up. Any ideas on what to look for. Other possible
    settings etc.??

    Thanks in advance,

    What kind of terminal? 700/92? Check emulation....make sure it isn't VT.
    Also check console is in "Remote". Think its softkey F4 on 700/92.

  3. Thanks

    It's a 700/96 Emulation set for HP emulation and console is in "Remote"
    Still nothing appears on terminal.

    Sorry Dave.... end of my "old" knowledge. The only other two things I can
    think of (and Im hoping someone else will elaborate) is 1. The cable between
    VDU and Mux panel. Is it the right one? and 2. IIRC there was a fuse in the
    mux panel I think, surface mounted, looked just like a normal component,
    cant be certain and not sure what the symptoms were if it went OC.
