Most who responded suggested using "eeprom" and redirecting to a file:

e.g. eeprom  > filename

Joe Fletcher said:


eeprom > output.txt

will give you some but not all of it.


Eugene Schmidt expanded on what Joe said with:


Most, but not all can be seen by doing:

Alternatively, an RS232 cross cable to the serial port to another system.
Set capture on on Hyperterm/ "script /tmp/mylog; tip hardwire" or whatever
as required by tty session.

Reboot the server you wish to capture.

Break as system wishes to boot.



Exit from tty emulator and close script/log

Make sure system boots.
