Hi all:

Got a rp7420 system, HPUX 11.11, with 4 vpars.
On the front panel the red FAULT light in on.

How would I diagnosis and clear?

Thanks

Re: where is the error?

Go to the MP and review the system logs. This will clear the fault light and give you information.
unfortunately it is enough to try booting from a wrong path to lit the error light, but you will find the reason. Maybe a hardware problem too. In case of doubt post the log.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: where is the error?

Run SL to show logs. You may find that you really have a hardware issue. HP support can help to see if you have a hardware issue. You can also paste any MP errors in the forum.
If at first you don't succeed, read the man page.

Re: where is the error?

If you go to the MP menu, you will see

MP MAIN MENU:

CO: Consoles
VFP: Virtual Front Panel (partition status)
CM: Command Menu
CL: Console Logs
SL: Show Event Logs
HE: Help
X: Exit Connection

select SL, followed by "E - System Event" - select text mode for more information.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: where is the error?

The console can be sitting on any of the vpars?

Re: where is the error?

Shalom Rick,

The console may be accessible from the network if it was configured with its own IP address.

It surely is possible if you didn't do the setup that its inaccessible because its never been configured properly.

Most systems also care a Core I/O card in them and you can hook up one of those dumb serial consoles to it and do the SL to diagnose the area.

The console itself is usually involved in the vpar/npar process and if I remember rightly should be accessible from the vpars like any other console.

Some eyeball work is probably required, plus a look any any documentation left behind by the setup people.

Re: where is the error?

Hi Rick,

Ctrl-A will toggle between the vPar consoles.
But Ctrl-B will always take you to the MP.

Rgds,

Re: where is the error?

Many thanks!

I was unsure about the multiple partitions.

Did what I wanted.

Thanks again.
