Re: Problem

Hello,

These ar normal messages during the reboot of the server, nothing to worry of . However you should know the cause of the reboot.
Checked the above output , Attention and Run LED is flashing. Attention LED will go off once you acknowledge all the new logs in GSP.

Re: Problem

Message it self states that boot possible and there is no more information that who logged this. So nothing to worry as no issues with front LEDs also.
Just ack the logs so atten will disappear.

Re: Problem

Here's a link with a description of alert level 6.

http://docs.hp.com/en/T1322-90001/apas02.html?btnPrev=%AB%A0prev

If you feel there are real problems then look in HPMC's in /var/tombstones/ts99 file and note any in an attachment. Also note that some of the information will be zeroed out, as in data fields in a template and the template is always printed in a ts## file. So just include real non zero data.

Re: Problem

The PDH alert messages indicates the problem with CPU ID 3.
Check system log at
GSP -> SL -> E

Did you replace or add new CPU in the system? any switch setting change on system board?
