Choice into MP PE between 4 options

HYE,
One server HP RP7410 is going wrong. I cannot access to login.
I connect on MP. I cannot access login to the server.
I do BO 0 but nothing is doing
I think now to use PE 4 choices is offered :
T cabinet
C cell
D DVD/TAPE
P I/O chassis

Which is the better choice to alterate files and configurations minimum ?
Is it better to switch off electrical power in front panel ?
Thanks for your help.

Re: Choice into MP PE between 4 options

You cannot access the system files from there, in this case you need to reset the console to see if you can pass this step, those other option are for showing some system information (hardware), but you cannot make changes.

In that case, there might be a GSP/MP reset button somewhere on the server case. It might be near the TOC button - be careful not to mix them up. On rp54xxx series, the GSP reset button is in an especially difficult location: you need to pull the server from rack and find the button inside the PCI card cage door. (There might be a hole in the PCI card cage door which allows pushing the button without opening the door)

In any case, check if there is newer MP firmware available: MP firmware update might prevent the problem from reoccurring.

I hope this information helps.

Regards,

Marco

Hi,

PE is Power Enable. This will allow you to turn on/off the power to the Cabinet/Cell/IO Chassis.

Try CO (for console). This will allow you access to the console , ofcouse only if the OS is still alive and well.

Re: Choice into MP PE between 4 options

You can reset the server by doing:
CTRL B
CM
RS > This will stop the OS dead in its tracks (non Graceful) and start the POST tests and eventually boot (if you have autoboot set).

OR

To "electrically" reset the server:
CTRL B
CM
PS (select T Cabinet> OFF)
At this point you may wish to remove the power cables at the rear for a minute and then re-connect - this will also remove the housekeeping voltages.
Once the GSP has re-booted:
CM
PS (select T Cabinet> ON)
The machine will then go through POST check and boot.

Hope this helps
