Sun Fire v880 How to get ok prompt from RSC


I can not get ok prompt to boot solaris from CD. Could someone tells me what Am I doing wrong:

1. power on the system
2. rsc> console
3. after banner was dispalyed I try to send break (I try diffrent terminal emulators like HyperTerminal -> Ctrl-Break, Ctrl-Pause, Putty -> Special Command -> Break) but no results, system boots

I try also:
rsc> bootmode forth
rsc> reset

that works but I get ok prompt to soon, I can not execute any command e.g. "setenv auto-boot? false"

What wrong Am I doing?

How to disable RSC to redirect the I/O to ttya (I don't know root password), remove RSC card?

Thanks in advance

RE: Sun Fire v880 How to get ok prompt from RSC

try the steps below to set the output back to the terminal.
ok setenv diag-out-console false
ok setenv input-device keyboard
ok setenv output-device screen

if that didn't work , then remove the  RSC card and reboot the server !!
