AC450, OCS, HP-UX console
we want to replace an Advant OCS application (AC450 + OCS) with 800xA using '800xA for Advant Master'. As far as i know we have to get some files from the Advant OCS (Unix workastation using HP-UX) using an FTP client. But we don't know the workstation's IP address nor if an FTP server is setup correctly and running. How can we close the AdvaStation application (SCADA?) in order to have access to HP-UX console ? Is there any other way to get acces in a HP-UX console (in Linux you can logon in a new console using Ctrl+Alt+F1 to F6) ?
There is no need to close any HMI on the Advant Station to transfer files to/from it.
Unless changed by someone, the FTP server is running constantly in the background on all ABB Advant Stations based on HP-UX.
To transfer files to/from the Advant Station, in Windows use the "ftp" command or use some FTP client software (FileZilla, etc.) to connect to the IP-addresss of the Advant Station and login to the "root" account. Ronny forgot a hyphen in the password he wrote in his answer.
To reach a command terminal window on an Advant Station 500 OS do as follows:
1) Enable Maxdialog (turn/enable the hardware key in the keyboard or via right click in GUI + password)
2) System Config -> Station -> Terminal Window
To see the IP-address, use the "ifconfig" command with "lan0" as argument:
as26:/home/root# ifconfig lan0
inet 172.16.4.226 netmask fffffc00 broadcast 172.16.6.255
