RP3440 failed to initialize with entry_init status = -7

Hello. I have a very unhappy RP3440:

Main Menu: Enter command or menu > Bo
Interact with IPL (Y, N, or Cancel)?> n

Booting...
Failed to initialize with ENTRY_INIT Status = -7


fffffff9 18000 0 0
0 0 0 0
0 0 0 0
0 0 0 0
500 24 0 fffff905
0 0 0 0
0 0 0 0
12 4300 0 0
.... FAILED.

---- 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 >

This was working the last time I looked at it but that is a while ago now... No hardware changes have been made to the system in the meantime though.

Based on other forum entries I have looked into the system logs but nothing immediately leaps out so I'd welcome any suggestions...

Cheers,

David.

Re: RP3440 failed to initialize with entry_init status = -7

If my memory is still serving me right ENTRY_INT = -7 means there is no bootable media in your boot path. Which means your boot disk went bad one way or another.

try booting from Alternate Path with

Main Menu: Enter command or menu > bo alt

if it also fails, this means either your alternate boot path is not set correctly or your alternate boot path device (hopefully a secondary mirrored disk) is not bootable.

Please post your findings for further help.

Thanks for the suggestion - it pointed me in the right direction. Should have noticed the big red flashing light on the disk array really...

A quick power-cycle of the array and we're back in business.

Cheers,

David.
