The main problem is that booting the HP Proliant Server takes a rather long time, so I am tempted to do something different, like getting a drink, and then when I return it is too late .....
Additional problem is that OpenBSD console output goes to the installed PCI express nVidia Graphic card, while the X Window output only shows up at the built-in Matrox VGA. So I also have to remember to switch the VGA monitor cable when I want to do an install/upgrade.

Just now I managed to fix the VGA output in the HP BIOS by making the PCI-X card the primary video card. Now both console as well as X Window are using the nVidia PCI-X card. One headache solved ......
