Re: boot problem

Looks like the server is up and running, please post

# model
# echo "selclass qualifier memory;info;wait;infolog" | /usr/sbin/cstm


If the server is not running, execute from BCH:

Main Menu: Enter command or menu > in all

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: boot problem

BCH is the boot console handler, switch to COnsole:

---- Main Menu ---------------------------------------------------------------

Command Description
------- -----------
BOot [PRI|ALT|] Boot from specified path
PAth [PRI|ALT] [] Display or modify a path
SEArch [DIsplay|IPL] [] Search for boot devices

COnfiguration menu Displays or sets boot values
INformation menu Displays hardware information
SERvice menu Displays service commands

DIsplay Redisplay the current menu
HElp [|] Display help for menu or command
RESET Restart the system
----
Main Menu: Enter command or menu >

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: boot problem

hi,

if your on the gsp now, then type co and this should return you to console mode.

from here you should either be at BCH as mentioned or in hpux, unless it has stopped with an error.

the gsp logs are the error logs

sl,e,n for no filter.

need the last 4 or 5 errors.

Re: boot problem

It is important to know what server model it is. The command set is not the same for all servers, so I would suggest:

If you log on to the GSP, you will see a message like this:

Hewlett-Packard Guardian Service Processor

(c) Copyright Hewlett-Packard Company 1999-2001. All Rights Reserved.

9000/800/L1000-44 System Name: uninitialized



In this case it is a L1000 server (aka rp5400). What do you get?

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: boot problem

This is the family - all PA-RISC servers are 9000/800 ...

Please try read the GSp output again or simply read the label from the box.

Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Re: boot problem

It sounds like an L-class or N-class server to me. Both server will have memory carrier with 8 dimm slots. Memory dimms have to be installed in pair :

- 1st pair (0A, 0B)
- 2nd pair (1A, 1B)
- 3rd pair (2A, 2B)
- 4th pair (3A, 3B)

You probably want to reseat the memory dimms again to ensure they are all detected

Re: boot problem

>Torsten: Please try read the GSP output

The model(1) command will also give more details, if HP-UX is up.
