Hi,

an MCA (machine check abort) has happened. Only HP support can help in this issue which is with a very high chance (but not always) caused by defect hardware.

best regards

Re: SuperDome Shutdown Unexpectedly

On the MP, what does SYSREV show? I would be willing to bet that some firmware is out of date. I'd recommend that you download and burn to DVD the most recent SmartSetup image, and use it to bring all your firmware back up to date.

Hi

I would recommend to take this HP, they would be able to guide to get the required stuff over to them and woul dbe able to tell you what is defective and they could replace it.
(Assuming you have the warranty /contract)

I always run any issues with the superdomes with HP to be sure since ours is very critical environment.
