Re: rp8400 with fw level 4.0

Can you attach the output above in a text file? It is not possible to read it that way.

Hope this helps!

Re: rp8400 with fw level 4.0

I agree. So go to the back and physically check the power units. Note the LEDs. Also, these are how swappable (* I believe *) so why not service call?

Re: rp8400 with fw level 4.0

There is something wrong with your system I guess.

Your sysrev output does not match the rp8400, but the rp8420!

I can see an inconsistency also:

Cell 2
PDHC : A.003.030
Pri SFW : 22.002 (PA)
Sec SFW : 24.001 (PA)

But on all other cells Pri ans Sec is like that:

Cell 1
PDHC : A.003.030
Pri SFW : 24.001 (PA)
Sec SFW : 22.002 (PA)




Regarding your initial issue:

This is a known problem fixed in the newer firmware release.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: rp8400 with fw level 4.0

Hi Moonchild,

your title is a little bit mesleading. I guess that you have a rp8420, not a rp8400 ;-)

You are running on firmware bundle 4.0.
The firmware bundle 4.1 with MP firmware A.008.006 contains the following fix (beside some other):

"Previously, when the MP:CM> PS command was used to display the cabinet state of the SEU, Bulk Power Supply 1 would not indicate "Power Status OK". The PS command now correctly displays the BPS state."

The full release notes are available here:
http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?swItem=pf-53620-2〈=en&cc=us&idx=1&mode=4

=> you have no hardware problem. You can safely ignore the wrong status and wait until the next planned downtime to update the firmware.

best regards
