Question, I received a used pSeries 615 (7029-6C3) with no video card and no hard drives. I installed 4 hard drives but am unsure as to how to connect to configure BIOS or install AIX. I'm familier with using a console connection as with Cisco devices but am unsure as to how this will work on a pSeries server. I have tried plugging in to COM1 on the back, I do NOT have an HMC. Is it possible to use a standard PCI VGA card just to configure BIOS? Is there a way to do it entirely headless with no VGA card by only using the serial connection with Hyperterminal? From my understanding, the settings should be 19200, 8N1, with flow control off. Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
