 Question about rsc and system console
Hello
I just configured the alom/rsc card of our new v880. I installed the
RSC package and enabled both the 'ethernet' and 'serial' ports, but I
only have the ethernet port wired and I am able to telnet to it and
login. I get the rsc> prompt, but when I type 'console' it doesn't
connect me to the system console. I have redirected console
input/output to the rsc. When I connect the serial port of the rsc card
to a terminal server and telnet to the port, I get the rsc prompt and I
am able to connecnt to the system console from there by typing
'console'. But from the ethernet port it doesn't connect me to the
system console. Is it supposed to connect me to  the console from
etherent or not??

 Question about rsc and system console

It is supposed to do that, but AFAIK you have to type "console -f" on
an ethernet based connection.

If I type "console" on our V440 I get:
maierkom@carl:~$ telnet sc3
Trying 192.168.1.135...
Connected to sc3.

Enter #. to return to ALOM.

This way you will only get a readonly connection as told by "[view mode]".
If you want a read/write connection you will have to type "console -f"

If it's a V890, then it's an RSC card, not an ALOM.

Yes. This is what happens if you fail to read the instructions.

In particular the section "Redirecting the Console to RSC" in chapter 2
of the RSC 2.2 users guide at http://docs.sun.com/doc/816-3314-12

 Question about rsc and system console
:

Hello again
As I said in my original posting, I have redirected the output from tty
to rsc and I am able to connect to the system console from the serial
port of the RSC/ALOM card. But I am not able to connect to the console
from the ethernet.

 Question about rsc and system console

you are very unspecific about the problem you are having... how
about posting a log from a session, then your problem will become
much more understandable...

That, and a complete list of how you set up the RSC.  Not what the OP
was trying to achieve, but the actual commands they used.

 Question about rsc and system console
input & output device should be 'rsc-console' not 'rsc' (some of the
docs are wrong).
