Cannot boot an A500 server

Hi

Last days I saw some 'SCSI reset' messages in syslog.log when 'ioscan -f' command is executed.

Now I rebooted the system bu it cannot boot.

It loads kernel and display
Boot
: disk(0/0/1/1.15.0.0.0.0.0;0)/stand/vmunix
7909376 + 1220456 + 1137200 start 0x254ae8

alloc_pdc_pages: Relocating PDC from 0xf0f0000000 to 0x5faab000.

After 5 minutes or more, a GSP system alert is shown and prompted for keyboard typing:

************* SYSTEM ALERT **************
SYSTEM NAME: MBBDDGSP
DATE: 04/09/2003 TIME: 06:32:48

A: ack read of this entry - X: Disable all future alert messages
Anything else skip redisplay the log entry


Can anyone help me ?

Hi,

Re: Cannot boot an A500 server

Thanx for all but it was a hw panic due to a bad SCSI terminator.

After disabling "Alert Logs" in GSP, the error message is displayed:

Console reset done.

Boot device reset done.

Stored message buffer up to panic:
: 0
SCSI: Reset detected -- lbolt: 645, bus: 0
SCSI: Reset detected -- lbolt: 662, bus: 0

Re: Cannot boot an A500 server

Hello Oscar,

I am facing a similar problem on my A-class server. The boot hangs at alloc_pdc_pages: Relocating PDC from 0xxxxxx.
Can you let me know if you could solve itand how?

TIA
Rashmi.
