Clear a Fault Manually

When the server detects faults, the faults are logged and displayed on the console. In most cases, after the fault is repaired, the corrected state is detected by the server, and the fault condition is repaired automatically. In cases where the fault condition is not automatically cleared, you must clear the fault manually.

  1. After replacing a faulty component, power on the server, and verify that the fault for that component has cleared.

    See Verify That a Fault Has Been Cleared.

  2. Determine your next step.
    • If no fault was detected, you do not need to do anything else. Do not perform the subsequent steps.

    • If a fault was detected, continue to the next step.

  3. Clear the fault from all persistent fault records.

    In some cases, even though the fault is cleared, some persistent fault information remains and results in erroneous fault messages at boot time. To ensure that these messages are not displayed, type:

    faultmgmtsp> fmadm acquit NAC-name
  4. If required, reset the server.

    In some cases, the output of the fmadm faulty command might include this message for the faulty component:

    faulted and taken out of service.

    If this message appears in the output, you must reset the affected domain after you manually repair the fault.

    faultmgmtsp> exit
    -> reset /Servers/PDomains/PDomain_x/HOST
    Are you sure you want to reset /System? y
    Resetting /System ...
  5. Clear the fault in the Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center software, if applicable.

    Clearing a fault with the fmadm acquit command does not clear that fault in the Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center software. You must manually clear the fault or incident. For more information, see "Marking an Incident Repaired" in the Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center Operations Reference at: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/oem/ops-center/index.html

  6. If you are servicing a component, return to the procedure for that component.
