I cannot find any reference to the 8416 code in the D-series service manual.


Since you are getting a fault, there is apparently some component that is failing.


The "INIT C440" is normal and means that the path to the console is being initialized.


Is the system currently up and running?  Does it boot completely?


If HP-UX is running, what does 'ioscan' show?  Are there any components missing that should be there?

Wow - ancient history!


The "INIT C440" indicates the system could not initialize the console during boot up. This can happen if the terminal itself is in an incorrect mode or for other reasons.


Try the following to fix:


1. Reset system console by turning off console.

2. Hold down the 'D' key and continue to hold the key down while powering on the console, wait 10-15 sec, release key and a message should pop up in lower left hand part of screen 'default configs used press return to clear'

3. Press return and wait for console to finish restarting


4. Reboot your server...


*Might* fix it - no guarantees...
