Re: Tru64 idle loop

And what's your question?

Did you look at that stuff you attached?

I know nothing, but it looks to me as if
there might be a problem with pgb0.

Re: Tru64 idle loop

Looks like a hardware problem.
Probably with the 2nd KGPSA (fibre channel HBA), possibly with the PCI bus

Is this a redundant configuration?
I would pop (take out) that KGPSA and try again.
Boots properly?
Re-seat and try again. Fails again?

Before trying to boot you may want to 'look around' are the console level ( P00>>> )

show fru
show device
set mode diag
wwidmgr -show adapter

Is this an ES45?

Good luck,
Hein

Re: Tru64 idle loop

Dear All

the problem was a hardware failure in one on the fibre cards on the servers.
