Goal

 This document provides a number of links to other documents that describe, for each class of hardware, how to setup console logging and how to retrieve that data in the case that is required.

Many Sun systems have integrated system controllers that are responsible for some of the initial poweron testing, and ongoing environmental monitoring of the system. Many of these servers have the capacity to capture the console log, although in many cases, it is improperly configured, or not configured at all. The result of this is that frequently, the first failure on systems does not capture sufficient data to troubleshoot the problem.  The following documents are aimed at demonstrating how to enable these controllers to be able to capture the log of the integrated system controllers, so that maximum diagnostic information can be collected at the time of a failure.
