I have a bladecenter T and a js20 powerpc blade, as well as a cisco 25R5391 Layer 2 switch. I am trying to establish a serial over lan session to the js20 blade, but the sol status shows 'not ready' even after i add all the switch ports to the same vlan. on another note the 4 external ports on the cisco switch show "administratively down". I cannot issue a 'no shutdown' command on them in IOS, it returns an error. Could the external switch ports being down cause this? does anyone know how to enable them?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

the external ports config is in the wrong place in the MM firmware, its on the IO module power restart menu under the heading

I/O Module Advanced Setup
