Pc-Check Diagnostics Overview

If you are having a problem with your system, you can use the Pc-Check diagnostic tests to diagnose and possibly solve the problem.

To run Pc-Check, use Oracle ILOM to select testing options, and then boot the server.

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.

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 have finished.
