HP 9000 A500 beeping

Hello everybody!

We have a HP 9000 A500 with HP-UX 11.00 installed on it. A few days ago it began to beep in short intervals. I recognized that on the back panel the "B" led lights orange.
The operating system works well, there is just the beeping.

Does anyone know wht this beeping means an what to do to stop it??

Thanks in advance!

Kind regards

check /var/adm/syslog/syslog.log for any errors, also check #dmesg o/p, what is product no for ur server, i am not aware of A500 server.

Hi!

I checked the syslog.log and found a bunch of NFS errors like the following:
Nov 14 23:16:19 wghp04 vmunix: NFS access failed for server fsu: RPC: Authentication error^M
Nov 14 23:24:05 wghp04 vmunix: NFS access failed for server fsu: RPC: Authentication error^M

But NFS works fine.

Could this be the cause? What can I do to avoid those error messages.

p.s.: The NFS Server fsu is a Windows machine.

Hi,

Did you check the operating environment where server is located like temperature etc??

Can you post following
From OS OE
#echo "selall;info;wait;infolog;view;done" | cstm > cstm.txt

Connect to GSP and pull out
GSP - > CL
GSP -> SL -> E

What is the status of LEDs on the front panel?

Re: HP 9000 A500 beeping

Are you really sure the beep tone comes from the server and not from another device like UPS?
I'm not aware of a speaker or anything like this inside an a-class.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Hi!

I tried to type ctrl b, but nothing happened.

Do I have to do this from Console??
