Connecting ttya to the faulty system worked.
Some suggested removing the keyboard from the
faulty system. It worked with and without the keyboard
My original post follows.
We have a ultra 5 workstation which is giving no display.
I enabled POST thru' STOP+D and then connected
serial A of a nearby workstation to serial B of the
faulty workstation and issued the command
It responded with connected, but i am unable to see any
POST messages on the terminal when i power on the faulty
workstation. I tested the serial connection by logging onto
the faulty workstation from the other machine over lan and
then did a
cat <file name> > /dev/ttyb
I got the file displayed on the tip terminal.
Any ideas ? I will summarise.
