Logging In to the CX311 BIOS

Logging In to the CX311 BIOS


Log in to the CX311 BIOS through the CX311 serial port.


The BIOS can be accessed only from the switching plane CLI after you log in to the CLI over a serial port.

The BIOS initializes hardware, such as serial ports or dual in-line memory modules (DIMMs), reads the kernel image from the flash memory to the random access memory (RAM), and starts the operating system (OS). In the BIOS, you can load underlying software and debug underlying devices.
