This command removes the Red Hat graphical boot argument, enables boot message to be seen, and adds a serial console. As the console arguments will be added at the end of the line, the new console will take precedence over any other consoles configured.
To display the list when booting, press and hold any alphanumeric key when the BIOS information is displayed using the keyboard or other serial console, and GRUB 2 will present you with the GRUB 2 menu.
The grub2-setpassword tool was added in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.2 and is now the standard method of setting GRUB 2 passwords. This is in contrast to previous versions of Red Hat Enterprise Linux, where boot entries needed to be manually specified in the /etc/grub.d/40_custom file, and super users - in the /etc/grub.d/01_users file.
Where console=ttyS0 is the serial terminal to be used, 9600 is the baud rate, n is for no parity, and 8 is the word length in bits. A much higher baud rate, for example 115200, is preferable for tasks such as following log files.
To set the system to use a serial terminal only during a single boot process, when the GRUB 2 boot menu appears, move the cursor to the kernel you want to start, and press the e key to edit the kernel parameters. Remove the rhgb and quiet parameters and add console parameters at the end of the linux16 line as follows: 1e1e36bf2d
