Re: GSP mesage

Hi Angel, it looks like from your logs that there is a power supply problem. Normally on an L3000 there should be 3 power supplies. If you can get the front cover of your server off there are green led's on each power supply if you have power connected. You should check this first and then if there are no green led's lit you should look for a failure in your input supply
hope this helps

Re: GSP mesage

Malvin,

All three LEDs are green. That's what's puzzling.

Thank you,

Re: GSP mesage

The problem detected is 'output undervoltage
', "not enough juice".

I can't see a particular power supply ID mentioned, tho.

This could have been a transient power dorop from your external power source. Is this machine on UPS power? Any lightning storms lately, power drops in the building?

Re: GSP mesage

This is under building UPS, not individual UPS.

Would it be due a Transfer of control damage. Like on the K's

Re: GSP mesage

Hi Angel,

Try pulling ALL power to the unit (Pull ALL the AC cables) for a period *longer* than 30 seconds - 60 seconds should do. THEN plug it back in & after a few seconds proceed with power up. Short poer transients can "confuse" the GSP & it will start reporting false power problems.

Rgds,
Jeff
