ES47 running TRU64 5.1B failed to start after power failure..

Hi

I recently had an ES47 that failed to reboot after a power failure. After hooking up to the MBM everything seemed normal except that CPU0 did not not seem to be coming up. I cleared the error on the CPU and eventually after a few reboot cycles the system started up as normal. I'm a bit worried, is this normal behaviour or should i be concerned about the stability of this CPU ?

OK - I'll see what HP have to say.. Just wondered if anyone knew off the top of their heads if this behaviour was "by design"

Hi,

What were the errors that you cleared at the MBM console ?

I can't remember exactly, but I have seen problems powering up an ES47 when it wasn't shut down cleanly. In this case, an over temperature issue had caused one of two CPU drawers to shut down...

I seem to recall it requiring a few power cycles to get it to boot up.

Cheers,

Rob

ES47 with 2 or 4 CPUs?
AS Rob said, there can some temperature issues.
Please post some more details.
