Hmm, if it was a software problem, you would expect it to go away when you rebooted.
I was thinking it might be a divide by 0, where the software wasn't protecting itself from bad input.

Re: floating exception on DS20 machine

try "alias" to check "ps" is not reassigned?

Re: floating exception on DS20 machine

Hi,

That sounds more than likely to be a hardware issue then...

Drop back down to the SRM prompt (P00>>>) and try running the "test" command.

The service guide here may help:
