Pinned topic No Remote video on HS21 with RHEL 5

‏2008-08-27T14:49:05Z |
Hi,

i installed a rhel 5 machine on a hs21, when i try to administrate the system with the remote-control i only get a screen with the message "no video available". the system runs in init 3 so there is no gui, just a normal shell.

anyone an idea?

thanx in advance

    Hi, do you have a cKVM Card installed? If yes - try to disable it and work in analog mode or remove any mouse driver from the installation. That helps also against POD's in VMware

    update the Management module to last version ( https://www-304.ibm.com/systems/support/supportsite.wss/docdisplay?lndocid=MIGR-5076204&brandind=5000020 )
    See your resolution to connect.

    Supported video modes:

    640 x 480 : 60HZ / 72HZ / 75HZ / 85HZ
    800 x 600 : 60HZ / 72HZ / 75HZ / 85HZ
    1024 x 168 / 60HZ / 70HZ / 75HZ

    Minimum version in Advanced Management Module to support remote control in RHEL5 is 1.36G (verify in firmware VPD your version.)

    1.36G Build ID: BPET36G - Fixed a problem where Red Hat EL5 running the XEN kernel would not display remote video correctly.

    Regards!

    Hey DooMRunneR,

    I was in same boat and i had updated my AMM firmware to latest. unfortunately this is not Firmware issue.

    see my post there is ATI driver issue on HS21XM for RHEL4 and RHEL 5 so you have to install the RHEL4/RHEL 5 in text mode only later on you can playaround with X11 file to run linux in GUI mode.

    enjoy !

      Unless things have changed recently, you should configure X to run using the VESA driver, not the ATI one.
