USART2 configuration issues in EVB1000 board

We are using EVK1000 kit. Demo worked fine as we are getting accurate distance_data on the LCD of both the EVB1000 boards.

Now, we want to configure one of the EVB1000 boards USART/UART. We have choosen USART2 (PA2, PA3) for this purpose.

We have configured USART2 using CUBEMX and We have tried USART2 Tx & Rx with the Hyper terminal. But we are not getting data on the terminal and we see that the DR is not loaded with any data even though the execution goes fine.

Can you please confirm whether we can use this USART2 on this EVB1000 board? And also can you please share any documents/examples for the same.
