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.
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.
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
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 ...
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.
