After "poweron" the system does not echo any keyboard activity.

I've tried "#.", but it seems to have no effect on the system.

To review my assumptions:

With power, ethernet, a serial terminal attached and a HD installed, I should see "LOM" interface on Serial A.

On Serial B I should see nothing.

If I powerup the system by either typing "poweron" or toggling the power switch I should see the banner/console activity on Serial A. I should see nothing on Serial B.

The system came to me as "bare metal" - no HDs installed, so no LOM software on HD, no O/S to boot if system left alone.

As far as I can tell, I can't even tell the MAC address of the system to set up an install server "account".
