Thank you Kevin and Dewey. Alt-F2 worked. I had to do another little bit of figuring out to send that command through Proliant’s iLO interface by configuring hotkeys.

Subject: RE: How to get a shell when kickstart install fails/hangs
You need to be installing in ‘text’ mode to make that work.
Alt-F2 will get you to a prompt.
I have been experimenting with some kickstart files to automate installs (it also includes Cobbler snippets). But I get failures about errors in kickstart files when Anaconda launches. I want to get a shell to troubleshoot the problem.
How do I do that? Right now I have a screen that says:
The system will be rebooted when you press Ctrl+C or Ctrl+Alt+Del.
The message also says that the Anaconda version is 13.21.149. I’m trying to install RHEL 6.2 Server.
