Handling Process

Here is a tested and verified procedure to install the RSC function on the V890 of Customer Live Network:

1. Upload the RSC software
1) copy the rsc software:rsc2.2.3_packages_s9-V890.zip to system:/userbackup/sof/   through FTP client.
cd /userbackup/sof/
unzip rsc2.2.3_packages_s9-V890.zip

2) copy to the temp directory on the system:
cd /tmp
mkdir rsc
cp -r /userbackup/sof/rsc2.2.3_packages_s9-V890/* ./rsc/

2. Install the RSC software
cd /tmp
cd rsc/
pkgadd -d .

choose 'all'
choose 'yes' in all the following steps;…
at last: 'Installation of <SUNWcrsc> was successful.' means installation completed

3. Check the software installed successfully and the current RSC configuration
/usr/platform/SUNW,Sun-Fire-V890/rsc/rscadm show

Configure the RSC
cd /usr/platform/`uname -i`/rsc
./rsc-config

configure the RSC as below:
Continue with RSC setup (y|n): y                                               
                                                                               
Set RSC date/time now (y|n|?) [y]: y                                           
Server Hostname [SiteAA]:                                            
Edit customer info field (y|n|?) [n]:                                          
Enable RSC Ethernet Interface (y|n|s|?) [n]: y                                 
   RSC IP Mode (config|dhcp|?) [dhcp]: config                                  
   RSC IP Address []: 10.70.20.200                                             
   RSC IP Netmask [255.255.255.0]:

Enable RSC Serial Port Interface (y|n|s|?) [n]: y                              
   Serial port baud rate (9600|19200|38400|57600|115200) [9600]:               
   Serial port data bits (7|8) [8]:                                            
   Serial port parity (even|odd|none) [none]:                                  
   Serial port stop bits (1|2) [1]:

   Username []: admin                                                          
   User Permissions (c,u,a,r|none|?) [cuar]:                                   

4. Check the RSC configuration
/usr/platform/SUNW,Sun-Fire-V890/rsc/rscadm show

5. Configure the output/input device of the system
1) to check the current configuration

Congigure as below to use RSC
#eeprom output-device= rsc-console
#eeprom input-device= rsc-console
#eeprom diag-out-console=true
#eeprom diag-script=normal

6. Access the RSC through the network management port
telnet 'the IP of the RSC'

7. Reset the host system
#sync;sync;
#shutdown -y -g0 -i6
Access the RSC through the network management port, then console to the server
telnet 'the IP of the RSC'
