rx4640 Error

We have an rx4640 running hpux 11i v2. We are trying to connect a MSA1000 storage direct attach mode.

I upgraded the latest msa firmware using a proliant server, configured the storage volumes. the moment I hooked the MSA storage to the server, the server rebooted.

Since then, the server failed to restart. IT comes upto starting the EFI and then it resets. The error that I am getting is attached.

Kindly let me know if anyone has faced this problem before. Right now the server is in a loop and it keeps resetting...

Any clue ??

Thanks and best regards,

NAveen

Re: rx4640 Error

Hi Naveen,

I'm not sure if this is related to your Problem, but your servers firmware is ver old.

current is:

rx4640
System 03.17,
BMC 03.49
iLO MP E.03.15 Firmware

Go to www.hp.com Software and drivers and search for rx4640. You will find an ISO image (version 3.17). Follow the instructions.

I guess if you remove the msa, your server will boot. If not, the system logs have to be analyzed.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: rx4640 Error

Hi,

Which MSA controller firmware you have ? ( after upgrading ?)
What's the system and iLO firmware versions you have?

There was a situtation when in order to use MSA1000 with HP-UX, there is an alternative firmware for MSA1000 controller that exclusively supports the HP-UX operating system. This alternative firmware supports HP-UX only and is not supported for use with any other operating system.

But Now the latest standard firmware v4.48 is common firmware for all supported OS including HP-UX.
Refer the following doc
http://www2.itrc.hp.com/service/cki/docDisplay.do?docLocale=en_US&docId=200000081542715


The HP-UX support for MSA1000 was added in April,2004. It would require upgrade of system,BMC, iLO firmwares as well to the latest.

In your current case , just disconnect the MSA and your system should work normal and check for firmware compatibility.

The system is rebooting on account of MCA ( Machine Check Abort ) .
