Thanks for the suggestions. I'm sorry my search foo failed. I did search 
google and do a specific google search of the Sun Managers Summary 
archives with no luck.

Some specifics that I missed and was asked:

1. It's as if the keyboard is disabled. There is no response and I need to 
close the window.

2. The system is remote so I'm not able to personally power down the 
system to reset the sc.

3. I did try ipmptool but it reports errors on the driver so I don't know 
if that has anything to do with it. I've used ipmptool to retrieve info 
from various systems before so it's been successfully used before.

And a big thanks to the BOFH's out there who suggested I try better search 
terms and quit bothering the list with problems that have occurred before. 
It's always a pleasure to get e-mail support from a real seasoned 

Ultimately one of the network guys happened to be in the data center for 
something else and he was nice enough to pull the plugs which gave me 
access again. I have no idea still why the ALOM refused to accept input 
and having to power down the system to gain access isn't an optimum 
solution, especially when the data center is in Miami and I'm in Denver.

Pleasant day everyone.
