Excellent. I just spent ages trying to get an OBP {ok} prompt but everytime I sent it a break I would get blank, or a reboot.

Thank you for the tip, it works perfectly and has saved me taking a very big hammer to a very nice looking T5120 ;-)

I did it that way and the machine was gone ….

Ok there is an error:

You should change:
> set /HOST send_break_action=break
Set ’send_break_action’ to ‘break’
to
> set /HOST send_break_action=true
Set ’send_break_action’ to ‘true’

or your console will never appear again…

You’d better use alom ->
First set in ILOM GUI
ILOM ->
User Account Settings
admin Administrator alom
ILOM ->
Remote Control
Boot Mode Settings
Script: setenv auto-boot? false

Then login as admin

All I really needed was to set autoboot to false. Problem solved. Thanks.

How to get the alom/sc propt of this T5120 machine.

@john,

On this kind of server, you can connect to the SERIAL MGMT port using a regular serial cable and a terminal emulator like gtkterm on Linux or hyper Terminal on M$ Windows.
If you do so, have a look to the server documentation and you can then configure the NET MGMT port, to get access to the ALOM/SC over the network…

HI, I have a T5220 that shows only 4GB of RAM, but I have opened the server and it has 16 RAM modules of 2GB each one, so it has 32GB…

Any ideas?

Thank you in advance

@jjfbcn :
You might have a look at the memory components from the SP or OBP promt
From the SP, you’ll get access to every modules at a path similar to the one displayed below:

-> show /SYS/MB/CMP0/BR0/CH0/D0

/SYS/MB/CMP0/BR0/CH0/D0
Targets:
SEEPROM
SERVICE
PRSNT
T_AMB

Properties:
type = DIMM
ipmi_name = /P0/BR0/CH0/D0
component_state = Enabled
fru_name = 1024MB DDR2 SDRAM FB-DIMM 333 (PC2 5300)
fru_description = FBDIMM 1024 Mbyte
fru_manufacturer = Samsung
fru_version = FFFFFF
fru_part_number = 501-7952-01 Rev 05
fru_serial_number = 00CE01080628186718
fault_state = OK
clear_fault_action = (none)

On the OBP, you can check that your modules are enabled:
sc> showcomponent /SYS/MB/CMP0/BR0/CH0/D0
/SYS/MB/CMP0/BR0/CH0/D0 is enabled

You’ll also have a full list of DIMM modules using the web interface of the Service Processor…
