Proliant DL360 and ROMPaqs Upgrade

Hi,

I just upgrade the bios on a DL360 G4
and the server is not booting now.
If the server is not booting, I can't undo the bios version....
Any ideas ???

Thanks
Daniel

hi,

Does the server completes post. Do you see any drive initializing. Please remove the uprade floppy from the drive.It might sound silly to check for the disk. Please update me on the issue.

Thanks

Re: Proliant DL360 and ROMPaqs Upgrade

When I upgrade the bios, the procedure was succefully.
When I power on the server, no device is active and has no errors in the display.
The last words displayed are:

Redundant ROM detected. System contains a valid backup system ROM

and the server die, no keyboard response, no diskette response, no CD response ....

Are there any jumper to go back the bios or reset the bios ??

thanks

See the HP ProLiant DL360 Generation 4 Server Reference and Troubleshooting Guide (page 76-78) at http://search.hp.com/redirect.html?type=REG&qt=redundant+rom+recover&url=http%3A//docs.hp.com/en/359539-001/359539-001.pdf&pos=1

Access to Redundant ROM Settings

To access the redundant ROM through RBSU:

1. Access RBSU by pressing the F9 key during powerup when the prompt is displayed in the upper right corner of the screen.
2. Select Advanced Options.
3. Select Redundant ROM Selection.
4. Select the ROM version.
5. Press the Enter key.
6. Press the Esc key to exit the current menu or press the F10 key to exit RBSU. The server restarts automatically.

To access the redundant ROM manually:

1. Power down the server ("Powering Down the Server" on page 25).
2. Remove the access panel ("Removing the Access Panel" on page 27).
3. Set positions 1, 5, and 6 of the system maintenance switch to On.
4. Install the access panel ("Installing the Access Panel" on page 28).
5. Power up the server ("Powering Up the Server" on page 25).
6. Wait for the server to emit two beeps.
7. Repeat steps 1 and 2.
8. Set positions 1, 5, and 6 of the system maintenance switch to Off.
9. Repeat steps 4 and 5.When the server boots, the system identifies whether the current ROM bank is corrupt. If a corrupt ROM is detected, the system boots from the backup ROM and alerts you through POST or IML that the ROM bank is corrupt. If both the current and backup versions of the ROM are corrupt, the server automatically enters ROMPaq disaster recovery mode.

Hope this helps. If not, there are also other possible solutions in this document.

Hi,

I just resolve my problem.
We reset the bios config with dip switch # 6
This server is being installed with SUSE.

Thanks a lot !!

Re: Proliant DL360 and ROMPaqs Upgrade

Glad that is working for you.
Good luck with you Suse installation (i hope it is SLES 9 SP1, this works at my side). Don't forget to install the latest PSP (7.20 is out now, but i have not tested it so far), 7.10 worked. And change the NIC driver during or after installation from tg3 to bcm5700 or you are missing some management features.

And feel free to award points ;-)
