RHEL-AS4-U4 DL585 G2 Console Errors...

Hi,

I've just installed RHEL-AS-4-U4 on a DL585 G2 with 2 x Dual Core Opterons and 8GB RAM. I've got PSP 7.40 installed too. I am getting continuous errors being barfed out to the console, which are filling up /var/log/messages too... it starts off like this...

Apr 30 16:38:28 gbahel161 kernel: Your time source seems to be instable or some
driver is hogging interupts
Apr 30 16:38:28 gbahel161 kernel: rip default_idle+0x20/0x23

These errors only occur while PSP is running. If I do /etc/init.d/hpasm stop they cease. Obviously however I want the various components of PSP to be running on this machine. The error which keeps being displayed is as follows (there's a lot of it)...

Anyone have any idea what could be causing this?

Re: RHEL-AS4-U4 DL585 G2 Console Errors...

Shalom,

Take the 7.70 or higher version of the bootable DVD/CD for the system.

Boot from it.

Folllow the menus and update all firmware.

You mean G5 sever yes?

service syslog stop

At least temporarily to avoid filling the /var filesyste. I believe this problem should be resolved by firmware update. If not, run the hardware diags built into the bios. Test everything.

Re: RHEL-AS4-U4 DL585 G2 Console Errors...

Hello Lee,

This looks like problem related to ilo drivers.

Update the drives from the below link

http://h18000.www1.hp.com/support/files/server/us/download/26677.html

Reboot needed changes to take place.
Updating the firmware will take care of your issue.

Re: RHEL-AS4-U4 DL585 G2 Console Errors...

Thanks for the replies. Indeed upgrading the hprsm RPM to a newer version solved the problem, as per "Certification & Info's" URL.
