How do I turn off the LEDs Warnning for Video Card on C8000?

Main Menu: Enter command or menu > co pa con serial_A.643

Console path: serial_A.643
11.283 (hex)

Main Menu: Enter command or menu > ser chassiscodes off

Re: LEDs on C8000


I dont think you can turn the led off.

the workstation is designed to use a graphics card, and will show the error light you are seeing if it is missing.

What you have been asked to do, is just redirect the console output to a serial console(Terminal device)

Everytime you boot the workstation it will likely stop at BCH with a warning about no graphics card found. From here you MAYBE able to boot it, but something tells me it wont even boot without one installed?

Thanks Andrew.

Wasn't sure if this is something can be done.
My customer said that someone did turn that off in the past.

Re: LEDs on C8000

I sometimes started such a machine without a graphics card, but never noticed an error.

Make sure you disconnect the USB keyboard and mouse.

Without keyboard, the system automatically uses the serial console, AFAIR.

Hope this helps!
