C110 boot problem

Dear All,

I have a problme with my workstation C110 (A4200D old model). When I power on the workstation this one reboot alone 3 or 4 time during the bott process.

Each time that the workstation is rebooting I can see a message :
"eisa_config running in auto mode to fix the configuration mismatch".

The system seams modify the /etc/eisa/system.sci file.

The hardware configuration of my workstation has not be modified.

Could you please help me?

Best regards

If you have a support contract I would call the HP CRC (customer response centre), could be a hardware problem.

Hope this helps,

Dear Robert,

Thanks
I will try to follow the document.

But I can not contact the CRC to obtain a support on this type of equipment because it is out of support now (DR6+)

Re: C110 boot problem

hi,

I have come across this a few times in the past.
you maybe able to re run the eisa_config utility in hpux to get it back working, but this will probably only be a temporary fix.

The eisa config system.sci file checks the nvram for consistancy at every boot. The nvram has become corrupt for some reason.

This has always been a bad cpu board on the older c classes that ive dealt with. but ive always double ckecked the io board aswell. (the L shaped board inside)
The thing that sticks in my mind is that they have always had a dead coin cell battery in them aswell. Dont know if this has any real bearing on why the nvram fails but could cause problems with a power outage of some kind, something worth checking.

You should also check the date is set correct at PDC level. If there is a mismatch here you will get problems aswell.

The good news is the cpu boards are cheap nowadys on the used market. That would be my starting points anyway.

Re: C110 boot problem

I have no idea if this would help, but did you try and boot in single user mode?
