HP-UX 11.31

Hi,

We have HP-UX 11.31 itanium servers (rx6600 and rx2660).
How can I check if server reboots/shutdown due to power failure?

Thanks,
Ranjeet

Re: HP-UX 11.31

Check the shutdown logfile in /etc and compare with "uptime".

Hope this helps!

Re: HP-UX 11.31

Hi ,

You can check

# last |grep reboot
# uptime
# more /etc/shutdownlog

Check the Syslog,

cat /var/adm/syslog/syslog.log

Thanks,
Johnson

Dear Ranjeet

uptime is the command, if u want to see why it is see the log files.

cd /var/adm/syslog

tail -10 syslog.log

thanks and regards

Re: HP-UX 11.31

If you don't have an UPS to perform a graceful shutdown, you won't find an entry in /etc/shutdownlog.
As others mentioned, you can look at uptime, last or /etc/rc.log.

Re: HP-UX 11.31

Hi,
Check /etc/shutdownlog or /var/adm/syslog/syslog.log
and /var/adm/syslog/OLDsyslog.log

You will find there "REBOOT" like following..

$ cat OLDsyslog.log
Mar 15 22:03:43 HOSTNAME syslogd: restart
Mar 15 22:03:43 HOSTNAME vmunix: Found adjacent data tr. Growing size. 0x33de000
-> 0x73de000.
Mar 15 22:03:43 HOSTNAME vmunix: Pinned PDK malloc pool: base: 0xe000000100c22000

Mar 15 22:03:43 HOSTNAME vmunix: Loaded ACPI revision 2.0 tables.
Mar 15 22:03:43 HOSTNAME vmunix: MMIO on this platform supports Write Coalescing.

Re: HP-UX 11.31

Check event logs under /var/opt/resmon/log for power supply related alerts.

You may also have a look at console logs

Re: HP-UX 11.31

You can also check if there are related MP logs.

If you have UPS software installed, you should find related messages in

/var/adm/syslog/OLDsyslog.log

Without a UPS, the server will just go off without any messages. You will only find information about the last boot then.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: HP-UX 11.31

Check these two files

etc/shutdownlog and /var/adm/syslog/syslog.log

Also the OLDsyslog.log file.

Thank you all for your reply.

I found below text from OLDsyslog.log file but still unable to find the root cause for reboot.

Re: HP-UX 11.31

Ranjeet,

Well I'd be very suspicious of this:

Mar 17 21:48:53 docdev /usr/sbin/envd[1574]: ***** OVERTEMP_CRIT WARNING *****
Mar 17 21:48:53 docdev /usr/sbin/envd[1574]: Temperature exceeded the normal operation threshold. Correct the over-temperature condition.


Looks like the server is too hot - is this in a proper machine room? You might find more info in the system event logs on the Management Processor. Log in to the MP and enter:

SL

to look at the event logs, followed by E for the current logs...

Hi,

You can also the console logs. Log into GSP/MP and view the logs
Best wishes,

Re: HP-UX 11.31

This is exactly the reason:

Mar 17 21:48:53 docdev /usr/sbin/envd[1574]: ***** OVERTEMP_CRIT WARNING *****


If the temperature is much too high, the system will do a "reboot -qh", if still too high, it will power off to prevent damage.

You will find related messages in the MP logs.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.
