Re: DL380 G5 / Linux RHEL 5 / Reboot by ASR

Hello all,

I have the same exact problem with 4 brand new DL360G5 and 2 DL380G5 running RHEL5 x86_64.
Unexepected reboots occured (last one on last friday for one of the 360) on some of these servers: 3 of the 4 360 had this behaviour, 1 of the 2 380 too.
They all passed 72 hours of memtest86+ (v1.70) and 48 hours of hp diags (from smartstart CD 7.90) without problem before going to production, firmwares and packages are all up to date.
The following lines showed in /var/log/messages about 10 minutes before the ASR reboots the servers (last reboot for a 360) :
Oct 12 12:07:08 plam0043 kernel: ipmi_si(SI_CHECK_BMC): Failed to get Global Enables 0xc6.

A call is opened at hp europe.

Re: DL380 G5 / Linux RHEL 5 / Reboot by ASR

After reading this particular forum, I went ahead and disabled it. The reboots have all together stopped. Until HP or others can figure out what is happening, I'd rather keep it off since this server of ours is already in production.

I ran the same tests and came up with nothing substantial. Everything is normal it seems.

Good luck.

Hi evererybody,

I think HP must take time seriously to learn about this issue because it came to be very frequent.

I have the same issue about my 2 servers DL380G5 wich run Windows 2003.

Let us share our experience about this issue if anybody have the solution.

Cheers

Same problem... new DL380 G5 spontaneously rebooting.

Disabled ASR to see what happens. Interestingly though, in the management console the ASR 'log' showed no ASR events.

I'm experiencing the same issue with a brand new DL360 G5 running Red Hat Enterprise 5. Same errors in /var/log/messages as well. The server isn't in production but we were taxing it quite a bit. Contacting HP Support today.

Interesting. I am experience the same issue on two, brand new DL380 G5 servers. After reading this post, I've gone ahead and disabled ASR.

Has HP been able to give you guys a complete fix or do you all still have open cases?

I have an open case since June and I did not hear anything back from HP. I don't know if the case is still on their queue.

Re: DL380 G5 / Linux RHEL 5 / Reboot by ASR

Hello all,

I have the very same issue on 4 brand new DL380 G5 in production.

All servers are running Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, latest patches and updates (RHEL 5.1 now since a couple of days).

I also disabled the ASR because all 4 servers are production Oracle Databases and they keep crashing every 18 hours or so.

HP definitely needs to fix this ASAP, has anybody got a fix yet on this yet ?

Here's what you can see in the ILO2 log (from most recent to oldest, that is you get the BMC error first then it reset itself):

---
Informational iLO 2 11/11/2007 13:16 Server power restored.

Informational iLO 2 11/11/2007 13:15 Server power removed.

Informational iLO 2 11/11/2007 13:15 BMC IPMI Watchdog Timer Timeout: Action=System Power Reset.

Here's the kind of information you can get in the /var/log/messages once you disable the ASR (if you don't, the system resets itself before it has time to write those)
