If you are having a problem with your system, you can use the Pc-Check diagnostic tests to diagnose and possibly solve the problem. The Pc-Check diagnostics can test and detect problems on all motherboard components, drives, ports, and slots.
To run Pc-Check, you can use Oracle ILOM to select one of the following options, then boot the server:
Manual – Runs Pc-Check in manual mode and brings you to a Pc-Check menu.
Enabled – Runs basic diagnostics and takes about 3 minutes.
Extended – Runs detailed diagnostics and takes about 30 minutes.
Disabled – Pc-Check does not run. Use this selection for normal system operation.
The only way you can see the results of Pc-Check diagnosis is to run Pc-Check in Manual mode. The output is displayed on a monitor or serial console connected to the system. See Viewing the Pc-Check Results. The results of the Enabled and Extended tests are also written to nonvolatile memory on the SP, where Oracle Services can access them.
Note - On some systems with eight Combo GbE/8Gb FC Express Module HBA cards and four Sun Dual 10GbE 12 SFP+ PCIe 2.0 cards, Pc-Check incorrectly reports network card test failures. If this occurs, turn off SR-IOV in BIOS by setting Advanced > I/O Virtualization > SR-IOV >Disabled. Be sure to re-enable SR-IOV when you are done.
