Proliant Support Pack (PSP) 8.31 causes cciss kernel logs

Since I upgraded PSP to 8.31 (from 8.25) on two of my servers, I get loads of log entries like this in /var/log/messages:

Could it be firmware-related? How can I find the firmware version of the SmartArray controller?

Thanks,

Is there a mapping for PSPs <-> Firmwares?

8.70 is the latest version of the firmware CD, why would we use the version you stated?

Re: Proliant Support Pack (PSP) 8.31 causes cciss kernel logs

I found it.

It coincides exactly with the execution of this cronjob:

/etc/cron.d/hp-health

Here are the comments of the script called:

# #####################################################################
# ## This routine will restart the hpasm system management stack. ##
# ## This is called when we get a serious error during the ##
# ## initialization of the hpasmxld daemon uses with iLO 2 (ONLY). ##
# #####################################################################

What should I do to get that fixed?
