How to manage multiple serial consoles in a dynamic way?

Solution Verified - Updated -


The "Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux-6-Migration_Planning_Guide" document gives basis on this topic. This document indicates that all secondary serial consoles must be described as a dedicated upstart job with TTY name hard coded. This solution is not acceptable because we must be able to switch main and secondary serial consoles (by changing "console=..." kernel parameter).
