QBB0: GP HSlink overflow error of SoftQbb0 (HardQbb0)

Hi all,

We have 2 alpha servers GS160. When backup is running (12 vdumps in parallel )the system crash, the binary file reports next event:

----------------------------------------------

The system event analyzer reports possibles problems in Global Port Cables or Global Port Module or Hierarchical Switch.
We have change all the hardware above and the QBB but the problem persists.
Both GS160 has the same error, i think this is not a hardware error. Any idea?.

Re: QBB0: GP HSlink overflow error of SoftQbb0 (HardQbb0)

Welcome to the Tru64 forum.

I agree with your assesment that if two individual system show much similar errors, then it is more likely to be software than hardware. I suppose it is possible that both systems were created with inccrrect configs (PCI slot usage?), but i find that highly unlikely.

I hope you already officially reported this even to HP Support?

This question is beyond the scope of this forum, but you may be lucky and get a 'see this before' answer, while support sorts it out.

If you have not reported the problem to HP yet, please do so now. You have recent software, serious hardware, you deserve the best support you can get, and you deserve it now. Do not only wait around here.

Regards,
Hein.

Re: QBB0: GP HSlink overflow error of SoftQbb0 (HardQbb0)

I would suggest installing WEBES. WEBES can translate the binary.errlog and generate very usefull reports indicating the component with problems.

For example:

wsea n analyze binary.errlog out report.txt
wsea n translate binary.errlog out translate.txt
Por que hacerlo dificil si es posible hacerlo facil? - Why do it the hard way, when you can do it the easy way?
