I have a dell poweredge 2970 server with a serial console over ip enabled on the first ethernet.
The server with Red Hat enteprise 5.4 is configured to have console over ttyS1 in grub (console=ttyS1,57600 ) and in /etc/inttab I have:
S1:2345:respawn:/sbin/agetty -L -h ttyS1 57600 vt100
I can connect to console from another server using :
ipmitool -I lanplus -H myipmiIPaddress -U root -P password sol activate
but in the server I have /var/log/messages flooded with init: Id "S1" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes.
If I remove the entry in inttab I can't connect anymore so I suppose it's not completely wrong, how could I avoid it respawing?
