Hi vishal,

go to console and check the GSP logs. Once you will access that LED light will be turned off.

Hi vishal
RP7400 have some monitor LED. If you have "RP54xx Hardware Infomation" disk- Try to find CD disk in your box. You will find what LED mean by using this disk.
Another way, you can connect to GSP port (via LAN or console) and diagnostic by SL (show log)command. After check HW status by SL command ATTENTION LED will not blink any more.

Re: rp7400 attn. LED Blinking

Mostly the attn. light is harmless. to clear it try this:

From the system console, press

by default, the username and password are blank, so just press enter when prompted.


select 'E' for error log.
these logs are any warnings or errors in the hardware configuration. post them here, and someone will be able to tell you if you need to be concerned.
Quit out of the log display, and type 'CO' to get out of GSP mode. Your attn light should now be off.

What are the chances...

Hi all,
Thank you for these replies on behalf of vishal. I just want to know that how to connect GSP. What is GSP? please write in detail or forward link.
Thanks in advance

Re: rp7400 attn. LED Blinking

the GSP(Guardian Service Processor) monitors the health of the system, but not at a UNIX level.
It is more concerned with the power supply,CPU software problems etc.
CNTL+B on the console gets you started.
Use the co command to exit.
If you really want more info goto the forum search and use "GSP" as keyword. Don't forget to tick the forum box.

Re: rp7400 attn. LED Blinking


the attention LED blinking is quite normal in these types of servers.After analysing the GSP error logs it can be acknowldged by cntrl+B --> SL > not filer incomming error logs,....that moment itself LED will be off
