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

Re: No Remote video on HS21 with RHEL 52008-08-30T08:24:04Z in response to DooMRunneRHi, 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
Re: No Remote video on HS21 with RHEL 52008-08-30T21:49:29Z in response to DooMRunneRupdate 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.

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.
Re: No Remote video on HS21 with RHEL 52008-09-11T09:05:02Z in response to DooMRunneRi have the same problem
i'm trying to run gui (startx) on red hat linux enterprise server 5 through a remote console on a bladecenter but all i get is NO VIDEO AVAILABLE
i updatet the MM firmware to BPET42I but still no video
