Identify Faulted Components

The fmadm faulty displays a list of faults detected by PSH. You can run this command from either the host or through the Oracle ILOM fault management shell. This example shows how to check for faults through the Oracle ILOM fault management shell. You can also check for faults by typing show faulty at the Oracle ILOM prompt.

Note -  When you examine the output generated by running the fmadm faulty command, identify all components that require service so they can be replaced at the same time. Doing so will minimize down time and reduce service calls.
  1. At the Oracle ILOM prompt start the fault management shell, and then type fmadm faulty.
    -> start /SP/faultmgmt/shell
    Are you sure you want to start /SP/faultmgmt/shell (y/n)? y
