I thought I had this working...
(it worked last week...)
Today I went to use tip on my Ultra 2 to access the serial port on my
headless Netra T105.
No matter what I do, when I run -
the Ultra 2 reports back:
tip: /dev/term/a: Permission denied
all ports busy
I am running it as root. At first I didn't know if the error was referring
to the ports on the target (netra) or to the ports on the local maching
(Ultra). So I shut down the netra, and I still get the same message. Is
something using the Ultra serial A port that prevents tip from accessing
it? I don't know how to determine this.
Not knowing what I was doing (always dangerous!) I used the admintool to
look at the serial ports. i then shut down the zsmon on port A. That made
Can anyone advise?
