I have a SGI branded Clariion 5400, with the "thor" controllers. I
need a db9 to SC dup media adapter and sc dup to sc dup fiber to
connect this to my e5000 and I'll need an SPS with serial connection
to get the write cache going, but before I sink more money in it, I
just want to make sure it works.

When I connect to either serial ports I get this:

The Subsystem is Currently Powering Up...Please Wait!
Entering Serial Application Mode

Is that normal that it stops here?

Also, all the drive leds are green but the yellow warning light in the
front right is lighted, above the green led.

Can I not get any command line interface on the serial port?
