Re: FLT A088:FLT 11BF

I'll have this moved to the servers forum, I hope the people there can help You better on diagnosing the error codes.

I can only tell You to call a HP tech :(

Re: FLT A088:FLT 11BF

You appear to have a problem with hte console path. If you have changed the physical console, it is time to log a call, as I suspect you have a problem with the core i/o card, or the backplane.

Re: FLT A088:FLT 11BF

Hi Fadia,

please interrupt the boot process and check the hardware path to your console (this should be something like 10/4/0.0).

You will get a display like this:

Re: FLT A088:FLT 11BF

Fadia, the following errors:

FLT A088 = No Console Found, Unable to Boot
FLT 11BF = Slave CPU 1 halted due to catastrophic boot failure

Correspond respectively to a fault coreI/O (impossible to boot) and a consequently fault of slave CPU1.

Have you a modem attached? Try to disconnect the modem.

Check if the remote mode of console is turned on (see asterisk in this field).
Then try resetting the console :
power it off,
press and hold 'd' key,
power console on,
wait for beep

Anyway, check at this posted forum:

If you don't get resolution, contact HP.


if you don't try, you'll never know if you are able to
