Re: rp4440 crashed giving HPMC errors in System event log.

hi,

the system suffered a fatal error while trying to process information on the cpu. this in turn forced the system to panic and toc, which caused a reboot.

its difficult to say the exact cause from just this. while it looks loke a hardware problen at first glance it could also bea software application that caused it.

the crash dump files will need to be analysed to find out more info.

as its come back up and is working ok now it could well be s/w problem.

test the cpu in STM by running the exerciser tests.

check if crash is tuned on, and if it is run the Q4 analyser through these.

or, log it with the support centre.

you could also clear the error in the MP by looking at the error logs and reading them all

Re: rp4440 crashed giving HPMC errors in System event log.

Hi Santosh,

TS99 analysis indicate that the system crashed due to a time-out occurred waiting for a programmed I/O,

Possible cause could be in the I/O subsystem.

ts99 points towards rope four, it could be the cards located in slot 3 and 4 or it could be the lba hosted by rope four itself faulty.

My suggestion would be to involve HP to analyze further on this issue.
