System led Flash red on HP-UX 11.23 rx2660 server

Hi everyone!

I'm having a problem on a HP-UX 11.23 rx2660 server where the system led started getting flash red and I promptly accessed the MP card to see what was going on. Here is the SL transcript that is worrying me:

Can you give me some pointers on the possible causes for this problem? Can it be solved by a patch/firmware upgrade?

Any help is great at this point.

Best regards,

It appears to be a kernel panic. Have you had HP analyze your crashdump?

How up to date are your patches?

Hi Dennis,

Thank you for your quick answer. I'm trying to understand if I can solve this problem independently from HP because that would be the ideal solution. If you can guarantee me that HP help is in fact the only solution available right now, then I'll call them straight ahead. But is it possible to load the dump file and extract more info about the cause of this possible?

Regarding the patches, the server isn't updated frequently. I can list the patches it has installed if that info is necessary.

Best regards

Shalom Miguel,

I think getting a system up to date on firmware is good systems administration practice. I believe there is a reasonable chance it will help with this problem.

Your system may also need a battery replacement on its system board. It seems to be having trouble remembering its boot disk path.

If you are paying for HP-UX support, you might as well take advantage of it.

>If you can guarantee me that HP help is in fact the only solution available right now, then I'll call them straight ahead. But is it possible to load the dump file and extract more info about the cause of this possible?

Do you want to download crash analysis tools and learn how to use them? How soon do you want the problem solved?

>the server isn't updated frequently. I can list the patches it has installed if that info is necessary.

You should make sure you have a recent Quality pack installed. You can use SWA to help you with this analysis.
(I doubt anyone wants to go over your list of patches. :-) Better to have SWA analyze your patches.
On the patch database page for HP-UX there is also a web based analysis tool.

If you have HP support for HPUX, have the crash dump analysed by them to find out the reason for the OS Crash. Suggestion action plans could include patch update, FW upgrade, etc.

Hi

There is a manual:

in page 110 talk about Leds and the meaning.

Re: System led Flash red on HP-UX 11.23 rx2660 server

Something you could check is the Console Log from the MP. If you can locate the part of the log where the system crashes, perhaps you will have some idea as to why. The info would be limited, but perhaps useful?

Re: System led Flash red on HP-UX 11.23 rx2660 server

Based on the provided info it is not really clear IMHO. Either the system panics due to a hung or fatal I/O problem, or somebody does a TOC on the system.

Hope this helps!

Re: System led Flash red on HP-UX 11.23 rx2660 server

Hi Miguel,

Looks like your system crashed abruptly, this looks like a SW crash. In order to understand what caused this crash you may have to involve HP to analyze complete crash dump.

With this crash there would be a crashdump generated under /var/adm/crash/ directory, raise a case with HP, send the dump for investigation.

You may also check /etc/shutdownlog to see what kind of crash is it..

Best Regards,
Prashanth
