Clear Hardware Fault Messages

This section provides instructions for clearing component faults in Oracle ILOM.

After servicing a component, you might need to manually clear the fault using Oracle ILOM. Faults are captured by Oracle ILOM's fault manager and stored in the fault management database. If a component fault needs to be manually cleared, use the fmadm command from the Oracle ILOM Fault Management shell. The Fault Management shell is accessible by logging in to the Oracle ILOM CLI. For events logged in the Oracle ILOM event log, use the Oracle ILOM web interface.

For information about using fmadm, refer to the Oracle ILOM User Guide at http://www.oracle.com/goto/ILOM/docs

Before You Begin

This procedure requires the use of 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 on accessing Oracle ILOM, refer to the Oracle X5 Series Servers Administration Guide at http://www.oracle.com/goto/x86AdminDiag/docs.

    The Oracle ILOM CLI prompt appears:


  2. To access fmadm, type:

    start /SP/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:

    Usage: fmadm <subcommand>
      where <subcommand> is one of the following:
        faulty [-asv] [-u <uuid>]   : display list of faults
        faulty -f [-a]              : display faulty FRUs
        faulty -r [-a]              : display faulty ASRUs
        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 User's Guide for System Monitoring and Diagnostics for your version of Oracle ILOM at: http://www.oracle.com/goto/ILOM/docs

  5. Use fmadm to clear the fault.

    When you clear a fault, you can specify either acquit, repair, replaced, or repaired for the component in question.

  6. Close the Oracle ILOM session.
