Description

When restoring on a Sun 40z machine using the serial mode of the Management board, there is no interaction possible with the machine: keyboard keys are sent but never used by mondorestore. If you type an arrow to go down on the screen you get a ]]B Similar nothing happens when pressing TAB or CR.

The same version works with an HP ProLiant? server.

  • Status changed from new to assigned

Context: RHEL 4.6 mondo 3.0.2 mindi 2.1.3-1 + mindi-busybox-1.18.5 PXE boot with console=ttyS0 serial=ttyS0 expert

I tried using a pre script in order to detect the problems. I launched in it tty (gives /dev.static/console), stty -a and stty sane which doesn't help. removing serial doesn't change anything launching a shell with redirection from+to console doesn't help. launching a shell with redirection from+to /dev/ttyS0 works (keyboard input and output)

Bug in mindi on console param (a /dev/ strings was misisng) serial wasn't used with full device name.

Improving the pre sript with:

ln -sf /dev/ttys0 /dev/tty
sh </dev/ttyS0 > /dev/ttyS0 2>&1

works !! So this is a work around (or a hint when such an issue is met)
