HP 9000 L1000 Alert light on console keeps flashing

We recently replaced the battery for this system but the alert light on the console keeps flashing. I've been told I need to check the console logs at the low level prompt (service processor menu)? Does anyone know how to do this?
Thank you,

hi,

yes it easy,

login to the GSP, either at the local console by pressing control and B key sequence or via the lan interface if it has been configured.

from here enter sl for select logs, then enter e for error, and then select n for no filter. read the 6-10 logs and the light should turn off. Read the logs to make sure that is why the light is on

from here exit and type co to return to the console prompt

Andrew, unfortunately we only have an HP Secure Web Console. I tried to do the CTRL B and the GSP wanted me logon and enter a password. Do you know if there is a default logon and password or how it can be reset?
Thanks,
John

hi john.

yes the default password and user is not set, just hit return kry for both.

you can reset the gsp back to defaults by opening the right and side of the system to access the gsp card and there is a reset button on the gsp card itself. hold this in for a few seconds and then at the local console press p when it prompts you.

you have to be quick though.
