View Faults Using the Fault Management Shell

  1. From the Oracle ILOM CLI, to launch the Oracle ILOM Fault Management Shell, type start /SP/faultmgmt/shell.
  2. To display the commands available in the Fault Management Shell, type help.
  3. To display information about the components, type fmadm faulty.

    In the following example, the output shows one faulty CPU.

    The Affects and Status lines identify the component affected by the fault and its relative state. In this example, a single CPU is affected. It is marked "faulted".

    Beneath the Status information, the data for the impacted FRU (field-replaceable unit) displayed. The location string (also called the FRU label) is "/SYS/MB/P0." It should match the label on the physical hardware or the value displayed by Oracle ILOM.

    The Status of the FRU displays as faulty.

    The Action section might also include other specific actions instead of, or in addition to, the usual reference to the fmadm command.

    -> start /SP/faultmgmt/shell
