Yes, the serial cable stays connected to a laptop which is not on very

is attached to another computer that serial cable ?

do usually reboots that other computer ?

The laptop that is attached to it is not on that often. Most of the time
when the Sun boxes crashes the laptop is off.

Subject: OS dies, Sparc server returns to Open Boot prompt

Hello Everyone,


Sun Netra 240

Linux hostname 2.6.18-6-sparc64-smp #1 SMP Fri Oct 10 12:34:52 UTC 2008 sparc64 GNU/Linux

Disclaimer: I usually run Linux on x86 but I am stuck at this time with a Sun Sparc server which I know very little about.

I have a Sun Sparc server running Debian that may run for days but the OS stops/dies and when I serial into it with Minicom it is at the Open boot prompt and I have to tell it to boot.

Has anybody had this problem?
What was the resolution?
How do you trouble shoot this?

If further information is needed please let me know.

Thank you for your time in advance,
