Serial connection

You can set up a serial connection with the management module.

After you connect a serial cable from the management module to the client system, complete the following steps:

  1. Open a terminal session on the client system, and make sure that the serial port settings for the client system match the settings for the serial port on the management module. The default management-module serial port settings are as follows:
    • Baud rate (BPS): 57600
    • Data bits: 8
    • Parity: no parity
    • Stop bits: 1
    • Flow control: none
  2. If any of the serial port settings for the client system were changed, reset the management module (see the Installation Guide for your management module for instructions).
  3. At the login prompt, type the management-module user ID. At the password prompt, type the management-module password. The user ID and password are case sensitive and are the same as those that are used for management-module web access. The default management-module user name is USERID, and the default password is PASSW0RD (note the number zero, not the letter O, in PASSW0RD).
The CLI command prompt is displayed. You can now enter commands for the management module.
