I booted the machine with the rescue64 kernel and edited the /etc/inttab default boot to 1 (single user).
The debian LPAR will now boot and the the JS21 / IVM console can communicate with the debian partition - over the IVM Serial console.
- we edited the /etc/inittab and uncommented the line "T0:23:respawn:/sbin/getty -L ttys0 9600 vt100
- /etc/securetty - - - we have an entry ttys0 (and it is already uncommented )
Now - when we do an init 2, the machine will begin going into run level 2 and it will hang in the same spot....
HOWEVER... we know that the OS is not locked up because we now see these messages on the console (every 5 minutes)
INIT: id "T0" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes. ( again - this occurs after enabling t0 in the inittab. )
with regards to : please send us the full kernel log
Im not sure what file your looking for - but will send it --- if someone can explain what file you want to look at.
Thanks - Dave O.
