Access ALOM-Port of a Sun Fire V100 from Opensolaris Build 134

Today I had to install an old Sun Fire V100 server.

The Server has no onboard display. There is only a serial console
with a RJ45 plug. For the Sun Systems you got a converter from RJ45
to serial console.

By using a standard LAN cable, you can connect with the adaptor.


On my laptop is OpenSolaris Build 134 running.

To connect, I found a hint here.

Nothing has to be changed, just start
tip /dev/term/a -9600

and the system is connected.

You can switch between the installed system and the ALOM with the key-sequence #..
