Re: L2000 I/O error on boot up...see attachment

Hello Daniel,

How did the problem occur,it was setup as new server,or any modification was done .just try setting up the scsi parameters in BCH menu and also see the termination on the core i/o card scsi connection.


Thanks/regards,
Aliasgar.

Hi,
1 ]
This is regarding kernel parameter:
Default value of the kernel parameter (ncallout) is too small.
PROBLEM
Problem Text :

The default value of kernel tunable parameter "ncallout" is
too small and may cause system panic ("callout table overflow")
if many multi-threaded applications are running on HP-UX 11.00.

It is defined with NPROC in
/usr/conf/master.d/core-hpux file as,

ncallout NCALLOUT (16+NPROC)RESOLUTION
The workaround of this phenomenon is to modify the
/usr/conf/master.d/core-hpux file by hand as follows
and recreate new kernel.

from
ncallout NCALLOUT (16+NPROC)
to
ncallout NCALLOUT (16+NKTHREAD)
(or larger).

This has been fixed on HP-UX 11i.

2] Also, you probably have another issue
The chassis code below appears because the Rev B
GSP Card (A6696B) is not fully supported on the
revisions of PDC (L2000 (PDC 40.48) and L3000
(PDC 40.43)) installed on the system. You must
have PDC 41.36 for L3000 and PDC 41.38 for
L1000/L2000.

Re: L2000 I/O error on boot up...see attachment

thanks for your help! I found the problem to be scsi card configurations in the BCH, SERvice, SCSI. This is a used box so the previous owner must have configured these scsi paths in this system. the funny thing is that the system would not let me delete the empty paths until I put a scsi card into the paths indicated. Something new everyday!!
