POST Output Reference

POST error messages use the following syntax:

c:s > ERROR: TEST = failing-test
c:s > H/W under test = FRU
c:s > Repair Instructions: Replace items in order listed by H/W 
under test above    
c:s > MSG = test-error-message

In this syntax, c = the core number, s = the strand number.

Warning messages use the following syntax:

WARNING: message

Informational messages use the following syntax:

INFO: message

In the following example, POST reports an uncorrectable memory error affecting DIMM locations /SYS/MB/CMP0/BOB0/CH0/D0 and /SYS/MB/CMP0/BOB1/CH0/D0. The error was detected by POST.
