[ProLiant DL360e Gen8] NAND Error

 Hello everyone,
I am currently having issues with NAND error, currently error i have is: 
Controller firmware revision 2.10.00 NAND read failure: Media is in a WRITE-PROTECTED state

But it shuffles always.. Let me first tell you fully what have i tried doing, so i upgraded iLo to latest version 2.61 and there was error about NAND I did click 'Format Embedded Flash and reset iLO' after reboot it came up working BUT Intelligent Provision was not working still, so I tried updating it on latest version, after update i started seeing again NAND read failure, now I tried several times clicking 'Format Embedded Flash and reset iLO' it didnt work, then after a while i tried also over HPQLOCFG to run 'FormatFlash' script, which did not do anything, I even tried shuting down server and taking out power cords for few minutes and putting them back.

Here is log from script:

</RIBCL>


Script succeeded

Any ideas what should I do to get it working again, and solve Intelligent Provision?
Looking forward to your answers!

Click format NAND, then pull the power plugs.

Now check in ILO log if the format was really done.


Hope this helps!

Re: [ProLiant DL360e Gen8] NAND Error

Hello,
I am getting following error:
1789
04/02/2019 18:09 04/02/2019 18:09 1 Embedded Flash/SD-CARD: Embedded media initialization failed due to media write-verify test failure.
1788
04/02/2019 18:08 04/02/2019 18:08 1 Embedded Flash/SD-CARD: Failed restart..

And in diagnostics it changed to following:

Controller firmware revision 2.10.00 NAND read failure

Then after next only iLo reset it was changed back to:

Controller firmware revision 2.10.00 NAND read failure: Media is in a WRITE-PROTECTED state

Unfortunately the NAND is probably permanently damaged.

Hope this helps!

Re: [ProLiant DL360e Gen8] NAND Error

Is there anything else we could try?
Would it work if we put sd card?

Re: [ProLiant DL360e Gen8] NAND Error

Hi,

You try the following action plan step by step.

• Select the iLO Security Override Switch to ON
• Boot the server using USB SPP with CPxxxxxx.scexe copied to hp\swpackages
• Select Interactive
• CTRL + ALT + D + B + X
• Navigate to mnt/cdrom/hp/swpackages
• Unload HP iLO modüle rmmod hpilo
• sh scxxxxxx.scexe –direct

If problem persist the replace mainbaord.

 

Kind Regards,
Erdogan.

Hello,
Can I do it over booted OS? I have Centos right now installed, cant i just execute it?

Re: [ProLiant DL360e Gen8] NAND Error

Hi @Trle94 

It needs to be done by the method suggested above.

Re: [ProLiant DL360e Gen8] NAND Error

Hi Erdogan,

In SPP 2018.03 after I select "Interactive" and come up to the language selection, Ctrl+Alt (and D + B + X with the Ctrl+Alt pressed) does not bring anything up. I tried another combination (D + B + G) for another purpose and it works, but I can't seem to be able to get D + B + X working.

Sincerely,

This is disabled for security reasons.

 

To make it work, switch the "ILO security" DIP switch on the systemboard.


Hope this helps!

Torsten.
