The system was powered off - nothing but XSCF was on. I couldn't remember the XSCF password. I was trying root. As it turns out, you are forbidden from creating an account called "root" on XSCF (it is one of the many reserved words). I had to create a new user using the following procedure (thank you, Bikash!):
Change the panel mode switch to Locked and press return…
Leave it in that position for at least 5 seconds. Change the panel mode switch to Service, and press return…
I did as directed...
Create a user andrew
XSCF> adduser andrewChange the password for andrew
XSCF> password andrewGrant andrew the following privileges, useradm, platadm, aplatop.
New XSCF password:
Retype new XSCF password:
XSCF> setprivileges andrew useradm platadm platopAfter that, I was able to log in as my new user and view the errors. There were none.
XSCF> showlogs error
Other options here: showlogs event, showlogs power, showlogs monitor, showlogs console and fmdump.
What I needed to do was boot. Again, I struggled to remember the procedure for getting to the boot prompt. I tried the T2 commands to start a console - no luck. I tried simply console which got me close. I needed a domain_id that I did not know. Then I vaguely remembered something and tried this:
XSCF> console -d 0
I answered Y to "Do you really want to start console" and then it did nothing. You need an extra ENTER here before the boot prompt showed up. Then I typed "boot" and was finished.
It all seems so straight-forward and mnemonic now. I don't know what my problem was this morning. :-)
