Re: BIB in superdome server

BIB : is Boot is Blocked.
This is applicable for cell based servers & supedomes, when you power recycle or reboot , cell goes through power re-cycle mode and at one point ,when it is down, it sets the cell status as BIB , "Boot is Blocked" at BIB system can not boot or do anything, if it past that stage system starts loading POST and boots up the system.

Hi Deeos:

When a partition is inactive, all cells in the partition are in a boot-is-blocked state. This is the case when a partition is in a ready-for-reconfig state.

You can boot a partition to make it active by using the GSP command menu's BO (boot) command. This boots the cells past boot-is-blocked and allows the cells to rendezvous and form the partition.
