E-Series, SANtricity and Related Plug-ins Discussions
I am having problems connecting to system via serial console.
The mini usb is connecting fine but not the rj45 port.
I tried changing speed to 115200 but still only mini usb is working. We have other Netapp FAS systems where console is working just fine but not the E-series.
Under Santricity system manager i can not find any configuration for it.
Does anyone have any advice for this?
Thank you .
See The Solution
Following KB states: Any NetApp storage appliance (Not sure if that also means ESERIES) that utilizes a RJ45 console port, a DB-9 to RJ-45 adapter is required to utilize the RJ-45 console port.
Also take a look at this KB, very informative on RJ45 and console port:https://kb.netapp.com/app/answers/answer_view/a_id/1036257
Please note: RJ45 serial console port to DB9 or USB to DB9 utilizes slower baudrate, so it should be - 9600-8-N-1. USB to USB can be higher.
I have only seen ESERIES in pictures, so I guess eseries netapp engineers will know this for sure.
I got it working.
We were using regular cable and needed crossover with speed settings of 115200.
This made it work.
Thank you for assistance.
