Note - The information fmdump displays is taken from the PSH event log, which retains the fault data after the fault has been repaired. For that reason, fmdump cannot be used to verify that a FRU replacement has cleared a fault. Instead, use the fmadm faulty command to verify that the fault has cleared.

In this example, the following information is provided about the detected fault:
Date and time of the fault (Jul 31 12:47:42.2008)
Universal Unique Identifier (UUID). The UUID is unique for every fault (fd940ac2-d21e-c94a-f258-f8a9bb69d05b)
Message identifier, which can be used to obtain additional fault information (SUN4V-8000-JA)
Details about the faulted FRU. This includes the FRU’s part number (part=541215101) and serial number (serial=101083). The Location field provides the name of the FRU. In this example, the FRU name is MB, meaning the motherboard.
In the following example, the message ID SUN4V-8000-JA provides information for corrective action:
