L2000 reboot

Hi,
We have an L2000 (4 x 550mhz 3gb mem) that, since a recent aircon failure, has begun to reboot without warning, and at present may or may not get to BCH without appearing to recycle power.

GSP and PDC code is current, and platform monitor card was changed from initial pd of log below.

Only relevant info in GSP error log is :

Log Entry # 2 :
SYSTEM NAME:
DATE: 07/17/2006 TIME: 06:02:27
ALERT LEVEL: 2 = Non-Urgent operator attention required

SOURCE: 6 = platform
SOURCE DETAIL: 7 = power monitor SOURCE ID: 0
PROBLEM DETAIL: 4 = internal failure

CALLER ACTIVITY: 2 = operation STATUS: F
CALLER SUBACTIVITY: 00 = unspecified
REPORTING ENTITY TYPE: 2 = power monitor REPORTING ENTITY ID: 00

0x002000246700200F 00000000 00000000 type 0 = Data Field Unused
0x582008246700200F 00006A06 1106021B type 11 = Timestamp 07/17/2006 06:02:27
Type CR for next entry, - CR for previous entry, Q CR to quit.

However on inspection of the server, it is apparent that all of the fans (psu and io) repeatedly 'surge and die' , eventually appearing to trigger reboot.

I plan to replace power converter module next, and we have a spare system board on standby.

Is this scenario familiar to any of you. Any suggestions welcome.

Thanks, Geoff

Re: L2000 reboot

My suspicion is that the power supply is hurt, since one of your symptoms is that the fans (on a +12V mechanical circuit) are surging. BTW, your drives are also on that circuit (to run the motors and tone arm) so I would recommend disconnecting the drives while diagnosing this problem

Re: L2000 reboot

Thanks, So far have replaced the power converter. System has started without previous errors, though has warned of a fan (cabinet 1) failure. (GSP logs and in STM)
Fans checked, reseated (front and back swapped to boot) .
Has now rebooted without any errors (gsp logs and stm clear), and we are monitoring its stability.
