Press Break on the terminal keyboard right after the RP gains control of the console port. On the Catalyst 6000 that runs Cisco IOS Software, the SP boots first. After it has booted, it turns control over to the RP. After the RP gains control, initiate the break sequence. The RP gains control of the console port when you see this message. (Do not initiate the break sequence until you see this message):

00:00:03: %OIR-6-CONSOLE: Changing console ownership to route processor
