Logging In to the CX710 BIOS

Logging In to the CX710 BIOS

Log in to the BIOS of the CX710 through the serial port or using SOL. The BIOS is used to debug the CX710.

  • If the software version of the switching plane is earlier than 5.52 log in to the switching plane CLI through the serial port and then access the BIOS. There is no other way to access the BIOS. If the software version of the switching plane is 5.52 or later, log in to the switching plane CLI over SOL or serial port and then access the BIOS.
  • For the switching plane versions from 5.52 to 6.53 (excluding 6.53), if you access the switching plane CLI over SOL and then the BIOS, the operations such as changing the password and system upgrade through disk formatting cannot be performed on the BIOS. These operations are supported on the BIOS from switching plane version 6.53.

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.
