Dear managers,

thanks for all your responses:

Rebooting the machine did the trick. I can now access the console via 
telnet though the internal LAN. However, I am wondering what happens 
when for whatever reason RSC does not work (e.g. bad RSC card) and 
Solaris is down. How can I bring back the console to the normal serial 
port to get access to the machine in this worst-case scenario? I assume 
tehre is some power button key press sequence that brings the machine 
back to its default behaviour!?
