has anyone managed to get serial console access working under dell r220's.

-All below under bios boot, as opposed to uefi, (which i can't use 
anyway as usb installer doesn't support ZFS on boot)

tried under both ZFS boot and traditional UFS setup.

I see:
         - with bios redirection after boot on   (which i have on all 
other working non r220 prior boxes)
                     -broken boot menu which gets kicked out to an 
usuable loader prompt, if you catch it quick it'll boot,
                         (i suspect there's some unwanted output from 
the dell serial output)

         - when bios redirection after boot is disabled box does boot ok 
under serial but i can't get a vt100 terminal login with same settings 
as i have workign on all other boxes.

thanks
Paul.
