  1. C3600 HPUX v1 install - hanged on language selection

    Hello,

    I'm trying to install a C3600 wks bought in ebay. The machine came
    with no USB keyboard nor CD media. So I managed to get this media (11i
    v1):
    B7993-10032
    B7993-10033
    B7993-10034
    (are these media ok for my wks model?)

    And tried to do an installation from serial console (remember: I have
    no USB keyboard). When booting from IDE device (CD-ROM) I got the
    following:

    RM,


    Is there not a PC shop nearby where you can buy an USB keyboard?


    Kind regards,

    That's not the answer to OP's question:
    "How to install HP-UX on a C3600 via console only ?"
    Of course, running a workstation w/o keyboard/mouse sounds weird,
    but he could go and buy a keyboard,
    while in the meantime the console installation is running :-)


  4. Re: C3600 HPUX v1 install - hanged on language selection

    Hello,

    I want to use the wks as a server so my idea is not having it attached
    nor keyboard neither mouse.I don't think it is a crazy idea What is
    crazy (and sounds weird to me) is to have a serial console which
    doesn't work to perform an installation. If you argue that "running a
    workstation w/o keyboard/mouse sounds weird", I could also argue that
    "a workstation doesn't need to have a serial console 'cause you could
    solve any problem by using your screen & keyboard". Or better: "having
    a serial console that needs an USB keyboard is totally crazy".

    Are you sure the only choice is to use an USB keyboard?

    Cheers,

  5. Re: C3600 HPUX v1 install - hanged on language selection

    Finally, I found a PS2->USB adapter so I could use my PS2 keyboard to
    perform the installation.

    Anyway, my original question remains unanswered, although it seems
    that the answer is "you cannot perform the install through serial
    console only".

    Yes, it's waiting for an USB keyboard. It's some time when I did an
    install over the serial console but IIRC you need to change the hardware
    path in the PROM first. For the machine itself it's enough to unplug a
    keyboard to switch to serial interface but the install routine reads the
    hardware path for the keyboard.

    I also thought of that. I set up console path to "serial_1", but the
    keyboard path cannot be set to any of the serial ports.
