Im trying to debug an issue we are having with netbooting a RedHat box. The anaconda installer scribbles useful log data to the second virtual terminal (Ctrl-Alt-F2) but I would like to be able to see this without being there (Box is racked and difficult to access). How can I edit the inittab to redirect the output so it streams to the serial port provided by the HP iLO card ? - I am familiar with setting up serial consoles for login, but not for redirecting like this?
Do you want something similar to that ?
The general idea is to define in boot-time where the output will be directed. For example ...
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.26-1-686 root=/dev/hda1 ro vga=791 quiet console=tty0 console=ttyS0,38400n8
