rx4640: Can't get any console output
Greetings chaps - I've lost access to the console on an HP rx4640, and
was wondering whether any of you had any smart ideas?
I can reach the MP main menu through our terminal server, but if I try
to connect to the console, I get nothing. When I try to boot the
machine, I can see that it starts EFI, judging by the event logs:
SFW 0 1 0x3400020B00E00000 0000000000000006 EFI_LAUNCH_BOOT_MANAGER
SFW 0 0 0x1600031800E00000 0000000000000030 EFI_SEC_INIT
SFW 0 0 0x0A0002B900E00000 0000000000000015 EFI_POST_CODE
SFW 0 0 0x160015B200E00000 0000000091451016 BOOT_TIME_EVENT
but I can't actually see anything on the console, and the boot doesn't
progress any further.
Anyone got any bright ideas? This all used to work, at some point in
the dim and distant passed, but the machine's been steady as a rock
for a couple of years, and it's only now when I needed to reboot it
that the problem has surfaced...
