HP DL380 iLOM configuration under RHEL5

 Hey there,

I'm trying to setup the virtual serial port under a compaq DL380G5 server in
order to bind a getty to it and allow serial port logins via the iLOM,
however, after having enabled this as COM2 under the BIOS options and turned
on the EMS console as per the instructions at


(iLOM serial port configuration guide)

I am getting the 'getty respawned too fast' message as it tries to bind to
the serial port.

When trying to query this port with setserial I get..

# setserial /dev/ttyS1
/dev/ttyS1: No such device or address

/dev/ttyS1 is as follows..

# ls -l /dev/ttyS1
crw------- 1 root root 4, 65 Apr 27  2009 /dev/ttyS1

The inittab line I've used is..

S1:2345:respawn:/sbin/agetty 9600 ttyS1 vt100

Has anyone here managed to set this up on a DL380G5 HP Proliant server
before ?
