[AIX 4.3] Adding a serial tty with smitty


I tried to add a serial TTY with smitty, using the command "smitty tty". I tried a lot of possible configurations and portnumbers.. but i ever receive the same error:
Method error(/etc/methods/define):
0514-022 The specified link is not available
it seems to be an error of the define program... but i couldn't find anything out in the manual and with google too.
does anyone have some suggestion about this? thanks

which hardware do you have ?
And which AIX ?
Maybe you have a system with no serial port, or an AIX version with no serial drivers.

AIX is the one of the topic: 4.3
It's installed on a IBM RS/6000 7248 with 2 serial ports. To the first of this two is linked a Chameleon 320 serial terminal... it's important to say that it ran perfectly when i had debian woody installed on the same machine

thanks

Did you really choose "smit tty" and then choose the first appearing port ?

Thanks for the "happy birthday". Sorry for the bad advice, but something really "big" is wrong, if this thing were my box I would immediately boot it on the first AIX CD-ROM and see if something appears on the console. Moreover, if you simply power down your system and type "ENTER" at the Chameleon 320 serial terminal, what happends ?
By the way, are you sure that the speed and parity inside the terminal settings are 9600bauds, 8bits/no-parity ? Same as on the "smit tty" screen?
