System Boots to Blank Console


System boots to blank console.


  1. Proceed through all the usual checks to ensure that the mouse, keyboard, and graphics adapter are available and the drivers are installed.

  2. Check that lft0 is available, enter:
    	lsdev -C |grep lft
  3. If defined, check the mounts, enter:
  4. Has /usr/lpp been copied to a separate filesystem?

    If so, the lpp directory must be under /usr filesystem and read at boot to configure the console. Copying lpp to a separate filesystem will prevent the console from configuring correctly, even if /usr/lpp filesystem is mounted at boot.
