Hi Steve

I can hunt the info out tomorrow as late now here in UK if no one comes up
with the info. The serial is normally set for 38400 baud and is different
pinout to the normal Sun console cable, from memory it has pins 2 and 3
reversed to standard, but do not quote me.....

I can also hunt out the sccli package for the in band connection which will
also allow you to set the array up as you mention.

about that?
