Solaris Common Messages and Troubleshooting Guide

System booting after fatal error FATAL


The system reboots automatically. Afterward, the messages file contains System booting after fatal error FATAL.

The message is issued during a reboot after the system detects a hardware error. The following can cause this response: UPA address parity error, Master queue overflows, DTAG parity errors, E-Cache tag parity errors, and Coherence errors.


Use prtdiag(1M) to help identify failed hardware components. The errors indicate that you either have a bad CPU module or a bad system board.
