Re: watchdog timer expired-BL860 server

Hi,

Without having any experience with Integrity blades, the x86 Proliants usually exhibit this problem when you have outdated iLO firmware + outdated management software running on the OS.

Since they use IPMI, the messages will be something like... "BMC IPMI Watchdog timer timeout" and then "Action= System reset"

Re: watchdog timer expired-BL860 server

Hi Subash,

Watchdog timer expired - hard reset. Probable Cause: Watchdog timer expired, and
a hard reset of the system occurred. Recommended Action: Some process took longer
than it should. Identify that process and contact the vendor of that application.

I would recommend calling HP support. This problem is sometimes caused by the MP failing to communicate with the FRU bus, and can be cleared by a reset of the MP.

HTH,
