rp7420 - MP access after powerfailure

RP7420 access to MP is intermittent.
after power failure we are not able to connect to MP. We reset it then we were able to connect but vfp shows BOOT_MONARCH_DONE_CHECKING_SLAVE.

after disconnecting power for a while and reconnecting we were able to get to the MP again but this time vfp shows no partition configuration

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance

I would open a call with HP HW group.

Sounds like it is just broke.

Do you have only 1 MP or you have 2 MP in your system?

Re: rp7420 - MP access after powerfailure

U mean any command on CM prompt get hung??

Why were you trying to execute xd?? normally it is used to upgrade the firmware version of the MP? Were you trying to do that and it hanged in between??

hi

i think you have a bad mp.

Usually an rp7420 would have 2nd mp.

Try access that and check again whether the config is still intact.

Go to CM -> XD and run all options. This is to check whether the mP is OK.

By the way, mridul. I maybe wrong but last time i upgrade the GSP firmware, i had to run XU and not XD. Pls correct me. Thanks.
