Proliant DL145 G3 CPU Error - Firmware Maintenance CD

Hi,

I recentely purchased a second hand DL145 G3, wich was running fine before in colocation but when i try to install Ubuntu 10.04.1 i get the following error:

Uncorrectable MCA error occured of the following type

Error type Bus

Memory transaction type Generic Error (GEN)

MCA model specific code MCA error code: 0007 /0F0F
Associated CPU: CPU 0
Dram Channel: A
HT Link: HT 0

Press F1 to continue

However the machine was installed with Ubuntu 10.04.1

I have tried the to upgrade the firmware of the machine with the Firmware Maintenance CD (8.70) and this is booting well from usb disk but has no support for the DL145 G3


Do i have a hardware issue or a Firmware issue ? I already changed the 2210HE with a 2214HE cpu and swapped memory but with no succes.

I know for sure, that the 100 series is supportet on the FW DVD 9.10.

I don't know if there's FW files on the image.

But you can add them manually.

Download the FW DVD 9.10.
Create it on a USB mem stik (Min 2GB)
Download all latest FW for the DL145 (Choose SUSE as OS)
copy files in the the \hp\swpackages library.

Run the interactive FW upgrade. Tick allow non-bundle images (First 2 ticks from the left)
select 100 series.

Run the upgrade.

I run it a few weeks ago on a DL120.
Note on these boxes it may change BIOS Settings (Phonix BIOS).
So if you have enabled the onboard RAID ctrl, you will re-enable it.

Also
You can run insight diagnostics.
Download the latest Smart Start CD.
Create a bootable USB stick.
(Hint you can have both on the same stick, using usb Tool 1.5, and a 4 GB stick (Did that my self)).
Boot the Samrt Start
Choose maintenance tab.
Run insight Diagnostics.

Setup a full test for e.i 24 hours.
I recommend deselecting the HDD's and the Serial port.

Also check the survey for correctable threshold exceeded on the memory (Will not be found with the test. )

Where can i find the direct link for the Firmware Maintenace CD/DVD and the SmartStart CDs, because i cannot seem to find it very easy.

Re: Proliant DL145 G3 CPU Error - Firmware Maintenance CD

I just used a Dell usb floppy drive for creating a rom image disk.

I successfuly upgraded the rom and now the machine seems to be running fine

I will try to make a firmware/smartstart usb key later this evening just to see if other firmwares need to be updated.

Thanks for the support so far
