Proliant Bl20p / RH3EL Update 3 . Hang

A customer with RH EL 3 Update 3 (AS) on Proliant Bl20p has a strange behaviour. When the customer perform a login never got the prompt... If you type crtl+c quickly after you have typed the password, you get the following prompt: "-bash-2.05b#". In this point any command will hang itself.

No entries in /var/log/messages and the HPSIM agents don´t report nothing. The only message in the /var/log/messages and in the ILO console is "casm: the HW semaphore that is used to synchronize NVRAM access between the ROM and the ILO is locked! See the man page for details".

Any idea?

Thanks in advance

If you can get a prompt:

Try the df command.

See if you have a filesystem close to capacity.

Beyond that I'd boot the system with its diag cd and check the hardware.

I've seen a lot on the forums and this one is a bit bizarre.
