Using Remote Video Mode to Monitor and Access POST
You can use a terminal program to remotely monitor all textual output generated during POST. All POST data will be displayed in the terminal program window as the remote system completes POST. While you are monitoring POST on the remote system, all local keystrokes are relayed automatically to the remote system, enabling you to use POST utilities (such as system configuration, RAID mini-configuration program, or diagnostic programs) that can be accessed during POST.
To use Remote Video Mode to monitor and access POST on the server:
Note: The default username and password is case sensitive. You must use all caps, and the '0' in PASSW0RD, is the numeral zero.
If you update the system management processor microcode, the default username (USERID) and password (PASSW0RD) are reset. If applicable, notify the system administrator.
When you have logged into the system management processor, the following main menu appears:
3 Error Logs
4 Service Processor Configuration
5 System Services
6 System Power
B Remote Terminal Status
Y Disconnect Current Logon
Z Start Remote Video
If the remote server is currently powered off:
If the server is currently powered on, you must restart the server. You can use selections from the System Power menu or the Boot menu to restart the server in several ways. To restart the server using System Power menu selection:
To restart the server using Boot menu selections:
Note: For information on the System Power and Boot menus, see 'System Power Menu Selections' and 'Boot Menu Selections'.
Once you have started Remote Video mode on the system management processor, all textual output generated during POST will be sent to the terminal window. the terminal will also act as a fully-active remote session, enabling you to enter keyboard commands that will be sent to the remote server.
In this way, you can enter key commands and key-combinations that access POST operations and utilities such as system setup or the RAID mini-configuration program.
When you have finished using Remote Video mode, press Ctrl+R, then press Ctrl+E, and then press Ctrl+T. This will end Remote Video mode and return you to the main menu.
