How to find CONSOLE ip address

Q: I have not kept good records for my systems and have forgotten the IP address for the console ports on all my HP-UX systems. Is there are way to find out what they are?

 A: For Itanium systems running 11.31 (only), yes, you can use smh  and the cprop command will also work. cprop is what the smh webpage uses to retrieve the IP address. Run the smh webpage (ie, hostname:2301) and look at:

 Home -> System -> Management Processor

 That will show the IP address for the console port.

Or run the cprop command like this:

/opt/propplus/bin/cprop -summary -c “Management Processor”
[Component]: Management Processor
[Table]: Management Processor
——————————————————-
****************************************************
                   [Hash ID]: Management Processor:28a24d1ax41eed6ca
                    [Status]: OK
                 [IPAddress]: 10.11.10.211
                       [URL]: https://10.11.10.211
                     [State]: Enabled
****************************************************

For PARISC boxes and Itanium models running 11.23 or earlier, you must use the serial port on the back of the box. The commands will be:

ctrl-a (to get the attention of the console interface)
<login>
typically Admin and Admin
CM
(to get to the command menu)
LC 

MA
(to exit the CM menu)
(to exit the GSP or MP menu)
