Configuring a serial connection on Remote Supervisor Adapter

Use the ASU to configure the Remote Supervisor Adapter II serial connection.

The serial connector connects to a modem for dial-out support only. To configure the Remote Supervisor Adapter II serial connection for access to a modem, complete the following steps.
Note: If you are using a Linux operating system, be sure to type ./ before the asu command.
  1. If you have not already done so, extract the ASU files.
  2. At the command prompt, change to the directory that contains the ASU files.
  3. To view a list of all of the settings and assigned values, enter the asu show all command, and press Enter.
  4. From the following list, select the items that you want to set.
    Option Description
    To set Use the following command and press Enter
    modem baud rate asu set RSA_ModemBaudRate1 value

    where value is a number from 2400 through 57600 in increments of 2400 (for example, 2400, 4800, 7200, 9600, and so on). The default is 57600.

    Note: Make sure that the baud rate matches the baud rate of the device that you are connecting to the serial connector on the Remote Supervisor Adapter II.
    modem parity asu set RSA_ModemParity1 value

    where value is None, Odd, Even, Mark, or Space. The default is None.

    modem stop bits asu set RSA_ModemStopBits1 value

    where value is either 1 or 2. The default is 1.

  5. Restart the system by typing asu rebootrsa and pressing Enter.
