Re: ML5500 system halted

Hi

We can do following :
Solution:
Invoke the ROMpaq Recovery Procedure by performing the following:
1) Set switches 1, 4, 5, and 6 on the server's Configuration Maintenance Switch Pack to the ON position
2) Boot the System ROMPaq diskette available for the specific model server.
3) Listen for two long beeps issued by the System indicating the procedure has begun
4) Listen for a sequence of ascending (increasing) tone beeps after flashing is complete
5) Check for a message in the IMD that will indicate a successful operation is completed (If equipped with one)
6) Power off the server and remove the System ROMPaq diskette.
7) Restore the Configuration Maintenance Switch Pack switches to their original positions.
8) Power up the server and observe for symptoms

In addition , Please do the follwing workaround, if the above does`nt work.

1. Upgrade the ROM with the latest version available on the web. Given is the weblink.

2. Swap with any other same processors
3. Suppress the second processor, make a clear NVRAM and put back the processor.
