bl8x0c I2 Machine check advisory.

Recently HP issued a Critical Alert for bl8x0c I2 blades (Advisory c02907262), see below:

 

DESCRIPTION

HP has become aware of a very rare condition where HP Integrity Superdome 2, HP Integrity Blade System BL860c i2, BL870c i2, BL890c i2, and rx2800 i2 Servers running HP-UX may fail with a Machine Check Abort (MCA).

SCOPE

HP-UX: HP Integrity Platform servers with Itanium 93xx processors: Superdome 2, Blade System BL860c i2, BL870c i2, BL890c i2, rx2800 i2, and HPVM (Virtual Machines) host. HPVM guests are not affected.

NonStop: Limited exposure and will be addressed separately at a later date.

OpenVMS: Limited exposure and will be addressed separately at a later date.

 

Note: does anyone know if this final line has been addressed yet.

 

Dave.

If you want offical answers then use offical channels but I've not seen a update since that advisory.

Re: bl8x0c I2 Machine check advisory.

We have OpenVMS on rx2800 i2 machine and OpenVMS 8.4

question: are we at risk to be affected too?

if yes under which conditions will this most likely happen?
