PA Risc only shows 2 cpus after reboot

I have a PA RISC rp7420 system that after a reboot only shows 2 cpus (using the top command). System has 6 and usually shows them. HPUX is 11.11. Any suggestions?

What does "parstatus" return?

Hope this helps!

From hp-ux run "parstatus", this will give more information.

Hope this helps!

Did the system crash?

Check the logfiles (dmesg, syslog, etc...) for any error conditions reported prior to or after the reboot. Check /etc/shutdownlog for the reboot reason and investigate.

Telnet to the MP, ctrl b and check the system status:

GSP MAIN MENU:
CO: Consoles
VFP: Virtual Front Panel
CM: Command Menu
CL: Console Logs
SL: Show chassis Logs
HE: Help
X: Exit Connection

CM

MP:CM> PS
MP:CM> DE

Check the event log files using CL for the partitions and SL, E for the system.

Re: PA Risc only shows 2 cpus after reboot

This is another problem.

Meanwhile connect to the MP and run PS

MP:CM> ps

and select the cell(s).

Hope this helps!

Re: PA Risc only shows 2 cpus after reboot

This is only a short version of the results, but the cell 0 is OFF (failed?) for any reason.


Hope this helps!
