Solaris 10: Serial Console

In order to redirect the console on our Solaris 10 file server to the serial port, the following changes were necessary:

  • edit /boot/grub/menu.lst to contain:
    serial --unit=0 --speed=57600
    terminal serial
    [...]
    kernel /platform/i86pc/multiboot -B console=ttya,ttya-mode="57600,8,n,1,-"
    
  • run eeprom console="ttya" (or change that value in /boot/solaris/bootenv.rc)
  • run eeprom ttya-mode="57600,8,n,-" (or change that value in /boot/solaris/bootenv.rc)
  • change the line console:9600 hupcl opost onlcr:9600::console to read console:57600 hupcl opost onlcr:57600::console
