How to get an image with a KVT100A Black Box?

I'm pretty new to Sun servers all together. I connected one using a usb to serial and using putty on my laptop. All I've got is a KVT100A but I can get a VGA or something else if I need to. The server is booting up fine but I'm not getting an image on my laptop or monitor. I've tried hooking the server to both. I have a feeling it's something ridiculously simple though. Please Help!

You need to run the KVT100A software on your laptop and the VGA has to connect to the KVT. You dont know whether there is video on the vga, connect a monitor to the vga port on the server and have a look. If not check server bios.

Testimonial: "Ok, I've got the KVT100a connected to my laptop. It changed the video dimensions of everything on my laptop. I downloaded the driver with it and everything seems fine on that end. What I need is to be able to see the serial management console. I erase drives on servers. This being my first SUN server, it's not seeming anywhere near as easy as an HP. I'm being told there's something in the program Putty that'll allow me to view the SMC but I've tried every setting in Putty with no luck."

The enter key has no effect when connected serially to the router or switch using secureCRT or Putty.


You need a network protocol like telnet or putty to communicate with the switch or router through the serial port. Just hooking up your computer to a serial port alone will not work.

How to identify old or new bootrom for iPhone 3GS


This guide is created to help those who are confused with what their iPhone 3GS' bootrom versions are. The devs haven't created a specific software/tool to make it easier for 3GS users but they are kind enough to tell us how.

Basically, these are the two (2) bootroms used in the 3GS:
  • OLD bootrom - iBoot-359.3
  • NEW bootrom - iBoot-359.3.2
Now, the problem is, how to locate that.


This is how

FOR MAC USERS
  1. Connect/plug-in your iPhone 3GS to your Mac
  2. Put iPhone to DFU Mode. (Read below)
  3. Go to Applications>Utilities> and open System Profiler
  4. Under the Hardware category, go to USB, and click on Apple Mobile Device (DFU Mode)
  5. At the lower part of that, you will find the detailed info. Look for Serial Number and you'll find the bootrom version at the end.
This is how it should look like (click on image to view larger): kid_ant_6.pngkid_ant_67.jpgkid_ant_6.png

FOR WINDOWS USERS
  1. Connect/plug-in your iPhone 3GS to your Windows
  2. Put iPhone to DFU Mode (Read below)
  3. Open Device Manager, open Universal Serial Bus controllers by clicking on the + sign beside it
  4. Select Apple Mobile Device USB Driver, right-click & select Properties
  5. Go to Details tab & select Device Instance Id from the dropdown menu
  6. You'll find the bootrom version at the end of the code on the lower box.
This is how it should look like (click on image to view larger): kid_ant_6.pngkid_ant_68.jpgkid_ant_6.png


Entering DFU Mode
  1. Plug/connect your device to a computer
  2. Turn it OFF
  3. Press and hold the POWER and HOME buttons together for EXACTLY 10seconds
  4. Release the POWER button but keep holding the HOME button until the computer beeps indicating that a USB device is recognized
If you don't get it at first, try holding the buttons for lesser time.

There is a wallplate with 2 outlets and 2 switches that control 2 separate lights. while trying to install new switches and outlets, wires came loose and now I have no idea what is what.


Open following link to see illustration:
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Single-pole-switches-in-4-gang.jpg

Each residential electric box has 1 hot wire. This wire should be black.
Hot wire carries power from the breaker box.
Use tester and find hot wire.

Each device in box connects to the black hot wire using short jumper wires.

Outlets: Hot wire connects to brass colored screw.
Single-pole switches: Hot wire connects to either brass-colored screw.

Neutral wires are usually white, and are twisted together.
Neutral wires connect directly to silver screw on each outlet.

Wire going to lights connects to other brass screw on each switch.

2. Introduction
The Type 5C Keyboard to USB Adapter (P/N 5188) allows a USB compatible workstation to be connected to the
Server Control Switch (P/N 5185 or 5195). The adapter converts keyboard scan codes from the type 5C keyboard to
equivalent USB keyboard scan codes. The adapter also converts the mouse data to USB compatible mouse data.
The Type 5C Keyboard to USB Adapter can also be used in a standalone setup, where it is connected between a
Type 5C Keyboard/mouse and a USB based workstation.
3. Installation
3.1 Between Type 5C keyboard and workstation (standalone operation)
For all installations it is recommended that the equipment be powered off for system interconnection and/or changes
to a setup.
• Connect the port labeled To Type 5C Keyboard to either minidin8 connector on the Type 5C keyboard using a
straight through minidin8 cable (P/N 8002 or equivalent). If using a mouse, connect it to the other minidin8
connector on the keyboard.
• Connect the port labeled To Computer USB Port to any workstation USB port using a USB Type A to Type B
cable (P/N 4021 or equivalent). This type of cable is used for connecting a HUB or other device upstream to
another HUB or a host controller.
3.2 Between Server Control Switch and workstation (system operation)
For all installations it is recommended that the equipment be powered off for system interconnection and/or changes
to a setup.
• Connect the port labeled To Type 5C Keyboard to any Server Control switch CPU port using a straight through
minidin8 cable (P/N 8002 or equivalent).
• Connect the port labeled To Computer USB Port to any workstation USB port using a USB Type A to Type B
cable (P/N 4021 or equivalent). This type of cable is used for connecting a HUB or other device upstream to
another HUB or a host controller.
• Connect the video output of the workstation to the Server Control Switch video input connector using an
appropriate cable/converter for connector and sync conversion
• Connect and power on the rest of the Server Control Switch system per the appropriate installation instructions.
4. Technical notes
Keyboard
The Type 5C Keyboard to USB Adapter emulates a Sun Type 6 USB keyboard (P/N 3201273-01) and a Sun
Crossbow USB mouse (P/N 3703632-01). The Type 5C and Type 6 keyboards match in available keys, however
several keys are relocated on the Type 6 keyboard. The adapter appropriately maps the key codes generated to the
key legends on the keyboard (i.e. all keys work the way they are labeled).
TYPE 5C KEYBOARD TO USB ADAPTER Page 3

Ultra Spec Cables, Inc.
Important Note Regarding Standby Operation:
USB supports a SUSPEND/RESUME capability that has various and incompatible implementations across differing
hardware platforms. This can affect the operation of the adapter if the workstation supports a low power or standby
mode with an incompatible implementation. Low power or standby mode is normally activated through a menu
selection (using the mouse) or by pressing the POWER key on the keyboard (upper rightmost key on both the Type
5C and Type 6 USB keyboards). For this reason, the POWER key on the Type 5C keyboard IS DISABLED when
using the adapter. In addition, it is important not to activate low power or standby mode through other means.
WHEN IN LOW POWER OR STANDBY MODE THE SYSTEM MAY NOT WAKE UP THROUGH
KEYBOARD OR MOUSE ACTIVITY, REQUIRING A HARD POWER-DOWN TO RECOVER.
In addition, the POWER key on the Type 5C keyboard does not have the capability to power-on a system as it
would when connected to a Type 5C compatible workstation (nor does a Type 6 USB keyboard have this capability
when connected to a USB workstation).

Just aquired an A3462A server mounted in a C2788A cabinet w/ 2 A3312A storage units. There's nowhere to attach a monitor. How can I solve this, I need to install a new operating system.


The A3519A is the only graphics card available for this machine. Typically it's accessed more by serial connection or a remote connection like telnet.

It's been 10+ years since I've worked with one of these and the graphics card was a very unusual thing to see. IIRC, it wouldn't help you with loading an OS anyway.

The easiest thing to do is download a copy of Putty and connect a PC to the K460 with a serial cable and use it as a console.

Dell poweredge 1600 sc XP install


I believe you would need to install the Serial ATA card driver before installing windows. When you first start Xp it asks if you have any ATA drivers that need to be installed first.    My guess,since it is used, that you have not the driver for that card?    Give us the make and model of that card and we can help look for the driver,or take it out all together and use an IDE hard drive.

How do I image the SCSI drives?


Once you set the new drive into the array use Acronis to copy an image of disk with the system on one of the other disks (not the new one you are installing to), and then use restore image on imaging software to restore the image on the new disk.
