rx1620 -- SPU Power is Down

Hi,

I have one rx1620 box, i am not getting any console output on either dumb terminal or VGA Monitor.

On dumb terminal, i am able to go MP . From MP, if i say CM>tc or CM>rt, i am getting the bellow error.

SPU Power is Down.

Please any one tell me, why i am getting the above error, and why i am not able to get any console output on dump terminal or VGA monitor ?

In the dumb terminal, From MP, i said CO, but i am not getting any output. I thought, might be console output on dumb terminal is disabled on EFI shell and might be the output to VGA is enabled, so then i connected the VGA monitor, but still i am not getting any output on VGA monitor.

Re: rx1620 -- SPU Power is Down

This means power is off.

Check with

MP:CM> pc


PC


Current System Power State: Off

...

From here you can switch on the server.

...

Power Control Menu:
C - Power Cycle
ON - Power On
OFF - Power Off
G - Graceful Shutdown

Enter menu item or [Q] to Quit: on
on

System will be powered on.
Confirm? (Y/[N]): y
y

-> System is being powered on.

Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Re: rx1620 -- SPU Power is Down

Ok, with the above help, with the command "CM>PC" i am not getting the error "SPU Power is Down".

But my main problem remains same. I am not getting any console output.

My box having three output devices.

(1) Console/Memory/UPS
(2) Serial Console
(3) VGA

I connect a dumb terminal to first device and another dumb terminal to my second output device .


On the first dumb terminal, i am getting MP login, and on the second dump terminal i am not getting anything.

On the first dump terminal , if i say "CO", i am not getting any console output.

But in second dumb terminal, i am getting the bellow words, and it hangs.


------------------------------
starting boot
boot time event
start I/O Discovery

--------------------------------

And it hangs here.



Any one help me what is the problem and what is the solution ?

For selecting the console for HP-UX, see this manual:

Re: rx1620 -- SPU Power is Down

I am not getting console output on any output device, that means, i am not able to see EFI shell, if i am able to see EFI shell, then i can change the console.

Re: rx1620 -- SPU Power is Down

Your primary console is probably set to VGA. Connect a monitor and check.

Hope this helps!

If the startup hangs, you should check the MP logs for errors/problems.

Hope this helps!
