3-Par PCM Failure - redundant

Hi All, I'm new here so, I'm not to sure I'm posting this in the correct forum.

This morning I noticed a orange amber light on one of my 3-Par cages. I checkd in the StoreServ all seems fine (Drives ,fans , space). So, I went in with the cli and ran a few commands and found the following on my 2nd Cage -

KP3PAR01 cli% cgcmd -tc tty -C cage2 -c report_faults -p a

Reporting Current Alarms(Highest priority first):

I'm not too sure what this means so, any advice will be welcome.

Thank you in advance.

 

Cheers

Gerhardt

What is 3PAR OS version installed?

Re: 3-Par PCM Failure - redundant

3.2.1.292 (MU3) it's quite old I suspect.

Re: 3-Par PCM Failure - redundant

yeah, it's good known bug, you need to update to MU4 (then reseat I/O modules in the "amber" shelf) to fix it

Ok , yes we are planning a firmware upgrade. So this is not a critical error that I need to worry about?

 

Thx for the quick replies.

No, I saw it before more than 10 3PAR's and there weren't any aftermath for them. I think it is some kind of troubles with indication no more

Awesome , thank you! You put my mind a bit at ease. I have a call logged with our supplier aswell, but doubt they will get back to me before Monday with an awnser.

Re: 3-Par PCM Failure - redundant

Look at the back of the 3PAR, specifically look at the power supply leds. Any of them amber? Also check the power cords are properly seated for the one with amber led. Do NOT pull out any power cable for the power supply with green leds.

You may need to log a support call to get this checked. Is this 3PAR calling home to HPE?
