UEFI Diagnostics in Enabled or Extended Mode

If you chose the Enabled or Extended diagnostics tests level, the server boots and runs UEFI diagnostics automatically. These modes execute a predefined set of tests and write the test output to log files in the log directory. At the end of the test, UEFI diagnostics returns the system status to disabled.

To view UEFI diagnostics output log files:

  1. Log in to Oracle ILOM as root.

  2. Access the Oracle ILOM restricted shell. From the Oracle ILOM prompt, type:

    set SESSION mode=restricted

  3. View the output files.

    • On Oracle Server X4-4, X4-8, X5-4, and X5-8 systems equipped with Oracle ILOM 3.2.4 or newer, the file is in diag/uefidiag/.

    • On other systems, the file is in log/uefidiag/.

    The UEFI diagnostics preserve the output from the previously-run test by appending a .1 to a file instead of overwriting it. For example, if UEFIdiag finds an existing test.log file, it saves that file as test.log.1 instead of overwriting it.

The following table provides the name and description of each output log file.

Displays the time and date when the test started.
Lists the system inventory.
Displays results of commands executed in the test scripts.
Displays the time and date when the test ended.
Displays the logs related to the UEFIdiag activities from when it is started until the original settings are restored.
This file is created if any errors occur. It contains a summary of the pass/fail counts for every command executed.

In addition to the above files, the directory contains one of the following files:

Indicates that UEFIdiag was aborted because of a configuration error. This applies only to systems equipped with Oracle ILOM 3.2.4 or newer.
Indicates that one or more tests failed.
Indicates that all tests passed.
