Sun N1 System Manager 1.3 Command Line Reference Manual

connect server

This command connects you to the serial console of a server.


You can use the connect server command to monitor installations or perform administration tasks. For most hardware platforms, the first user to log in is given read and write privileges on the serial console, and subsequent user sessions are read-only mode. Some platforms don't allow multiple serial console sessions on the same server. You can exit the serial console at any time through the following escape sequences:

ALOM-based systems: # .

Sun Fire(TM) X4000 series systems: ESC (

Sun Fire V20z and Sun Fire V40z systems: ^E c .

This command is not available in the browser interface's command line, but you can access a server's serial console in the browser interface by choosing Open Serial Console in the Actions menu on a Server's Details page. Also, because this command requires user input, do not use it in a custom N1 System Manager script through the n1sh -f command.
