Hi,

following a high temperature situation but now resolved, one of my rx 6600 does not boot neither from disk nor from install media. the front panel led are as : system --> flash red; internal --> off; external --> green; power --> green

the server BMC seems not to even pass the EFI stage.

i get into the MP and read the SL entries logs; this is the listing

Log Entry 17:

Alert Level 7: Fatal

Keyword: BOOT_NOT_DETECTED

No events were received from system firmware

Logged by: Baseboard Management Controller;

Sensor: Processor

Data1: FRB2/Hang in POST failure

.....

my fw is 02.17, bmc is 05.23 and ROM system fw is 04.03

 

i urgently have to bring up this server. any help ?

Re: BOOT NOT DETECTED with HP RX 6600

I'm not trying to make a joke, if you have a system that was exposed to high heat that says it's hanging in POST and won't boot:

 

CALL YOUR HARDWARE MAINTENANCE PROVIDER or swap the server out.  High heat is A Real Bad Thing for modern computer hardware.  Warning or failure messages or indicators in this circumstance aren't trivial.  Often you won't have some cute little way to defeat a test that fails after a system has been overheated.  More modern technology is MUCH more sensitive and their more densely packed components make systems even more sensitive than older units so manufacturers have built-in mechanisms to more closely monitor heat conditions.

Re: BOOT NOT DETECTED with HP RX 6600

Hi and happy new year to you all.

the problem is almost solved. since BMC was talking about Processor in the mp logs, i suspected that one of my 3 dual processors was faulty. I then start testing them one by one by removing each one after other in their load order.
After that, nothing changed. the server was still not able to boot.

Luckily, i have the same server in another rack which is not used all the time. so, when users were done, i replaced the entire processor board chassis of the faulty server with the one of the server in the second rack..and boot process completed fine. I think i will ask for a quote  for a new processor board.

Thanks to all. and Kevin , dont be afraid, the cooling system has been fully restored.
