Clear Hardware Fault Messages

After servicing the following components, you must clear the fault event in Oracle ILOM.

  • PCIe card

  • HBA

  • Front Indicator Module (FIM)

  • Processor (CPU)

Use the Oracle ILOM CLI to access the Fault Management shell, fmadm. For details, see http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E37444_01/index.html.

Before You Begin

  • This procedure uses the Oracle ILOM CLI interface.

  1. Open an SSH session and at the command line log in to the SP Oracle ILOM CLI.

    Log in as a user with root or administrator privileges. For example:

    ssh root@ipadress

    where ipadress is the IP address of the server SP.

    For more information, see Accessing Oracle ILOM in Oracle X4 Series Servers Administration Guide.

    The Oracle ILOM CLI prompt appears:


  2. To access fmadm, type:

    start /SP|CMM/faultmgmt/shell

    The fmadm prompt appears:


  3. To get a listing of command options for displaying or clearing a fault with fmadm, type :

    help fmadm

    The following output appears:

    where <subcommand> is one of the following: 
    faulty [-asv] [-u <uuid>] : display list of faulty resources 
    faulty -f [-a] : display faulty FRUs 
    faulty -r [-a] : display faulty FRUs (summary) 
    acquit <FRU> : acquit faults on a FRU 
    acquit <UUID> : acquit faults associated with UUID 
    acquit <FRU> <UUID> : acquit faults specified by (FRU, UUID) combination 
    replaced <FRU> : replaced faults on a FRU 
    repaired <FRU> : repaired faults on a FRU 
    repair <FRU> : repair faults on a FRU 
    rotate errlog : rotate error log 
    rotate fltlog : rotate fault log 
  4. Use fmadm faulty and the following options to display active faulty components:
    • -a – Show active faulty components.

    • -f – Show active faulty FRUs.

    • -r – Show active fault FRUs and their fault management states.

    • -s – Show a one-line fault summary for each fault event.

    • -u uuid – Show fault diagnosis events that match a specific universal unique identifier (uuid).

    For command specifics, see the Oracle ILOM documentation at: http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E37444_01/index.html

  5. Use fmadm to clear the fault.

    Clear the fault according to whether you want to use the acquit, repair, replaced, or repaired.

  6. Close the Oracle ILOM session.
