RP 3440 RED system LED

Hi,

I have a problem on a RP3440
the system led is lit in red

The error logs read like such:

Log Entry 0:
Alert Level 1: Major Forward Progress
Keyword: ERR_CPU_POLL_SUMMARY
The processor library function polling for CPU errors returned
Logged by: System Firmware 0
Data: Actual data

Log Entry 1:
Alert Level 1: Major Forward Progress
Keyword: ERR_CPU_POLL_SUMMARY
The processor library function polling for CPU errors returned
Logged by: System Firmware 1
Data: Actual data

Log Entry 2:
Alert Level 0: Minor Forward Progress
Keyword: PAT_ENCODED_FIELD_MINOR_FWD_PROG
Event corresponding to PAT encoded chassis codes
Logged by: O/S Kernel (Generic) 0
Data: 1st 8 bytes of a legacy 16-byte PA-RISC PAT Chassis code

Log Entry 3:
Alert Level 0: Minor Forward Progress
Keyword: PAT_DATA_FIELD_MINOR_FWD_PROG
Event corresponding to PAT encoded chassis codes' data field
Logged by: HP-UX Kernel 0
Data: Implementation dependent data field


The logs get filled and the red light comes back again after clearing the log and rebooting

Your feedback is appreciated.

best regards,
Farid

Hi

Looks like there is some hardware issue on the server. I think a call needs to be placed and HP to look into this issue.

Clearing the log withour fixing the problem is not correct, HP engineer can help you better.

Re: RP 3440 RED system LED

Your entries of the error log are alert level 0 or 1 that should not cause flashing the system red LED. So some other higher level (normally alert level 7) of events probably were logged and it caused flashing the system red LED. I would suggest you wil capture full SEL copy and contact HP support center. They can decode the error entries correctly by using the tool.

Re: RP 3440 RED system LED

The rp3410/rp3440 guide includes Chapter 3 which explains the LEDs.
http://www.docs.hp.com/hpux/onlinedocs/A7136-96005/A7136-96005.pdf This may help you as well.

Regarding the ERR_CPU_POLL_SUMMARY messages, these should be eliminated with the June 2004 (A.45.00) version of Diagnostics/STM. The STM patch PHSS_31114 fixes a widely known issue where a ia64_corehw process spawns a defunct process.

Regarding the PAT_ENCODED_FIELD_MINOR_FWD_PROG message, these should be eliminated with the latest firmware upgrade. See PHSS_30838 (for 11.11) which delivers PDC revision 44.24 http://www2.itrc.hp.com/service/patch/patchDetail.do?BC=patch.breadcrumb.main|patch.breadcrumb.search|&patchid=PHSS_30838&context=firmware:osinit
