Pc-Check is a DOS-based diagnostic utility that is integrated into Oracle ILOM that enables you to detect and test all motherboard components, ports, and slots. Pc-Check has four operating modes that you can run from Oracle ILOM:
Enabled – Run a predefined set of diagnostics when the server starts up.
Extended – Run a comprehensive test suite of diagnostics when the server starts up.
Manual – Run only the diagnostics that you specify when the server starts up.
Disabled – Do not run Pc-Check diagnostics when the server starts up.
You can also send a non-maskable interrupt (NMI) to the host operating system using Oracle ILOM. Note that sending an NMI to the host operating system could cause the host to stop responding and wait for input from an external debugger. Therefore, you should use this feature only when instructed to do so by Oracle Services personnel.
