Goal

Description:

RSC Commands at the rsc> prompt and from within Solaris.

To get from console to rsc shell one need to enter escape sequence: ~. (tilda dot)

 

Solution

Here is a list of rsc commands that can be used either on the RSC board, or run from within Solaris.

From RSC board:

environment Displays current environmental information

 

 

showenvironment (The showenvironment command is not available on Sun Enterprise[TM] 250 servers.)

shownetwork Displays the current network configuration

console Connects you to the server console

break Puts the server in debug mode

xir Generates an externally initiated reset to the server

bootmode Controls server firmware behavior, if followed by a server reset within 10 minutes (similar to L1-key combinations on Sun keyboards)

  • -u

    Force the server to direct the console to RSC; the -u option must precede any boot_mode you specify; requires server reset

  • normal

    Normal boot; server runs low-level diagnostics; requires server reset

  • forth

    Enter Forth interpreter as soon as possible (equivalent to L1-F on keyboard); requires server reset

  • reset_nvram

    Reset all NVRAM variables to default values (equivalent to L1-N on keyboard); requires server reset

  • diag

    Force the server to run full diagnostics (equivalent to L1-D on keyboard); requires server power-off and power-on

  • skip_diag

    Force the server to skip diagnostics (equivalent to L1-S on the keyboard); requires server power-off and power-on

reset Resets the server immediately

poweroff Powers off the server

poweron Powers on the server

consolehistory Displays the history of all console messages logged in the buffer

consolerestart Makes the current boot and run console logs “original”

rsc-soft-reset Performs a soft reset of RSC; this is the same as using the command rscadm resetrsc -s.

diag-output-torsc*|rsc-console**|ttya Directs POST output to either RSC (1) or ttya (0). This command takes effect after the next server reset. (E250 only)

diag-console rsc*|rsc-console**|ttya This command directs power-on self-test (POST) output to either RSC (1) or ttya (0). This command takes effect after the next server reset. (Not available for the E250)

rsc-mac-update Updates the RSC Ethernet address from the contents of the server ID PROM. Use this command after replacing the server NVRAM module. (E250 only)

.rsc Displays RSC information, including the diag-output-to setting and the RSC POST status word.

Available for Sun Enterprise 250 servers only. For other supported workgroup servers, you must set input-device and output-device to rsc-console rather than to rsc.

**For Sun Enterprise 250 servers, you must set input-device and output-device to rsc rather than to rsc-console.

 

OBP Environment Variable Properties:

input-device rsc|rsc-console|ttya
