Re: boot problem

You should check in the gsp, in the vfp, if you are passing the POST tests, because if its hardware related, you wont get passed that point, you can also check de chassis logs for errors.

What model are you working with ?
Windows?, no thanks

Re: boot problem

Bonjour Prasadshete,

REASON FOR ALERT
SOURCE: 7 = memory
SOURCE DETAIL: 2 = carrier SOURCE ID: FF
PROBLEM DETAIL: B = missing

==> clearly memory problem

Don't know wich hardware you are working on, but in a general way, you must follow some rules when working with RAM.

For example, you have banks, numbered from 0 to N and followed by a letter : 0a, 0b, 0c, 0d then 1a, 1b, 1c, 1d, etc ... If you insert a ram in bank 0a, you are supposed to also populate 0b, 0c and 0d with the same kind of RAM. You are also frequently supposed to place biggest RAM in first banks, lower in higher ones ...

Did you check this ? Have you read the hardware guide ?

Regards

Eric

Re: boot problem

hi,

is the memory installed on a memory carrier board, like the N4000's?

it looks like this is'nt seated correctly if it is, remove it and check the pins if it is. Also check the seating of the memory dimms aswell. also check the correct slots are been used

post a few more entries from the gsp error logs and also at wha point it stops at on the local console and output of the chassis logs if you can
