Default Configure ilo2 on Redhat

Hello,

I run a Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS release 4 box an i am trying to
configure ILO2 to use remote serial console.


I added in /etc/inittab file :

s0:2345:respawn:/sbin/agetty 115200 ttyS0 vt100 and used init q to reload.

ps -edf|grep getty returns : root 32359 1 0 14:26 ttyS0
00:00:00 /sbin/agetty 115200 ttyS0 vt100


When i connect via ssh or https on ilo port and try VSP or Remote Serial
Console via Java Applet,

i have :

</>hpiLO-> Virtual Serial Port active: IO=0x02F8 INT=3 but no console.

I tried : setserial /dev/ttyS0 uart 16550A port 0x02F8 irq 3 and it
returns :

Cannot set serial info: Device or resource busy

Do i need to modify boot options ?
Any idea ?

Many thanks in advance

Default Configure ilo2 on Redhat

Yes. You need to add an appropriate "console=" argument to the kernel arguments and the correct "terminal" line to the grub.conf.

In my environment, we add the following bare line to the grub.conf:
terminal --timeout=10 serial console

As well as the following kernel arguments:
console=ttyS0,19200n8 console=tty0

These are in addition to the inittab entry.

The biggest "issue" is that kernel messages only go to _one_ console so if you use the iLO2 serial console and the iLO2 integrated remote console, you'll only see messages on one of them. Also, the newer versions of the iLO2 firmware restore the telnet/ssh text console that is the same as the iLO2 integrated remote console.

Default Configure ilo2 on Redhat

Stephane:

Here is a link to the document to configure the serial port based on operating system

http://bizsupport.austin.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c00263709/c00263709.pdf

If you use the virtual serial port on linux besure to take note of enabling software flow control (page 8) to prevent you from losing the serial port access after the ilo2 is reset.

Adding boot options is only necessary if you want to see boot time operations via the serial port.
