Check for Faults

The fmadm faulty command displays the list of faults detected by PSH. You can run this command from either the Oracle Solaris OS or through the Oracle ILOM fault management shell.

The example used in this procedure checks for faults through Oracle ILOM.

If you are accessing the server module from the CMM, prepend each target path with /Servers/Blades/Blade_n, where n is the slot in which the server module is installed. For example, start /SP/faultmgmt/shell should be entered as start /Servers/Blades/Blade_n/SP/faultmgmt/shell.

  1. Access Oracle ILOM or log into the Oracle Solaris OS.

    See Log Into Oracle ILOM (Service).

  2. (Oracle ILOM) Start the Oracle ILOM fault management shell.

    Skip this step if you are checking for faults through the Oracle Solaris OS.

    -> start /SP/faultmgmt/shell
    Are you sure you want to start /SP/faultmgmt/shell
    (y/n)? y
  3. Check for PSH-diagnosed faults.

    This example shows how to check for faults through the Oracle ILOM fault management shell.

    In this example, a fault is displayed, indicating these details:

    • Date and time of the fault (2013-01-08/12:13:42).
    • UUID (59b2d926-4896-e979-e85c-cfedb5daedf5), which is unique for every fault. This is sometimes identified as an Event ID.
    • Message identifier (SPSUN4V-8000-F2), which can be used to obtain additional fault information.
    • Faulted component, including these details:
      • Component name (/SYS/MB/CM0/CMP/BOB6/CH1/D0)

      • Part number (07042208,M393B1K70DH0-YK0)

      • Serial number (00CE0212133341DB80)

  4. Use the message ID to obtain more information about this type of fault:
    1. Obtain the message ID from console output.
    2. Log into My Oracle Support at: https://support.oracle.com
    3. Search on the message ID.
  5. Follow the suggested actions to repair the fault.
  6. If necessary, clear the fault manually.
