Re: cc3310 HW check

Hi Kenneth,

You can always check log files to find the alert details.

# dmesg
# more /var/adm/syslog.log
# more /var/opt/resmon/log/event.log
Don't fix that what ain't broke

Re: cc3310 HW check

Thanks.

Unfortunately the server does not have either syslog og évent.log running.

How can a HW diagnostic be executed. Is additional SW needed, or can it be done from the BIOS?.

Re: cc3310 HW check

This is NOT HP-UX, it is Linux.
Moving to more appropriate forum.

Would also help if you posted your server model

Re: cc3310 HW check

With Linux , the dmesg command is used to view these boot messages. Alternatively, o system logs => file /var/adm/messages


You can try below options :)

#/sbin/fsck

#/sbin/e2fsck


u should be able to check the disk for errors

*****************IMP*****************

u cannot run these command when the file system is mounted

umount all the partitions and bring it to single user mode

#init s
or
#init 1

and then run any of these commands

Are you sure about this?

Be aware that linux keeps this logs in /var/log
(var/log/syslog/)

ps exw | grep syslog

shows anything?

Re: cc3310 HW check

I haven't got any syslog files in /var/log.

The ps output show the syslogd is running. They refere to a file called boot.log!

Re: cc3310 HW check

cat /etc/syslog.conf

Should give you info about where the logging info is sent

Re: cc3310 HW check

I did check the file, but the syslog has not been defined. I'll check if I'm missing some other configuration.

Re: cc3310 HW check

>syslog has not been defined

What do you mean?! In that file (I am talking about /etc/syslog.conf) you can find the configuration for syslogd daemon.

try

man syslogd

check the -f option

find / -name syslog.conf -print
