Establish a local connection to the default console on the server module.
Refer to the Sun Blade T6340 Server Module Installation and Administration Guide for information about establishing a local connection.
To use the default console, the values of OpenBoot input-device and output-device variables must be set to the default value, virtual-console.
Go to the OpenBoot ok prompt.
If you see the ILOM prompt (->), you are on the service processor, not the system console. Start the system console:
-> start /SP/console Are you sure you want to start /SP/console (y/n)? y Serial console started. To stop, type #.
If you see the ok prompt in the console, go to Step 3.
If the Solaris OS is running, either configure the host in Solaris OS or bring the OS down.
If Solaris OS is running, you will see a Solaris prompt. You can use the procedure “To Configure the Host in Solaris” on page 47.
If you prefer to configure the host at the ok prompt, you must bring down Solaris to access the ok prompt. The preferred method of reaching the ok prompt is to shut down the operating system by typing an appropriate command (for example, the init or uadmin command) as described in Solaris system administration documentation.
For example, if you type init 0 at the Solaris prompt, the system gradually takes you to the ok prompt:
# init 0
At the OpenBoot ok prompt, type:
ok setenv output-device rscreen ok setenv input-device rkeyboard
Note - The rkeyboard and rscreen aliases are defined with appropriate parameters for a Sun Blade T6340 Server Module. These aliases are not generally available or appropriate for all platforms.
Activate the change by using the reset-all command.
The console no longer provides input.
Exit the console to return to the ILOM SP, using the ILOM escape sequence:
The default ILOM escape sequence is #. (hash period).
Start the ILOM Remote Video Console from the browser interface.
See “Configuring ILOM for Remote Management” on page 49 for more information.
When you want to stop using Remote Console, change the values of the variables accordingly.
The default value for both variables is virtual-console. For more information about setting these variables for available connection methods, refer to the Sun Blade T6340 Server Module Installation and Administration Guide.
