Model SPARC M10-1, SPARC M10-4, SPARC M10-4S
Description If the poweroff -f command is executed while the physical partition (PPAR) is restarting, the next execution of the poweron command may cause an error that does not allow the PPAR to be powered on.
[Example] The PPAR cannot be powered on.
XSCF> poweron -p 0 
PPAR-IDs to power on :00 
Continue? [y|n] :
00 : Not powering on : An internal error has occurred. Please contact your system administrator.
Workaround Before executing the poweroff -f command, use the showpparprogress command to check the status of the target PPAR.
If "PPAR reset" is displayed at this point, it means that the target PPAR is restarting.
The PPAR restart is completed by the time that "The sequence of power control is completed." appears.
Until this message appears, do not execute the poweroff -f command.
If "This PPAR is powered on." or "This PPAR is powered off." appears, the PPAR has not been restarted.
[Example] The PPAR restart has completed.
XSCF> showpparprogress -p 0 
PPAR reset                  PPAR#0 [ 1/13]

Model SPARC M10-1, SPARC M10-4, SPARC M10-4S
Description Suppose you execute any of the following on a system with a PCI expansion unit connected when the power to the physical partition is on. In such a case, an SNMP Trap related to the addition of the PCI expansion unit or the link card is sent by mistake.
- Reset the XSCF

- Switch the master/standby XSCF

- Change the SNMP agent from the disabled state to the enabled state

- Set the SNMP agent management information when the SNMP agent is enabled

In such a case, the following SNMP Traps are sent:
- PCI expansion unit addition

scfPciBoxEvent
scfTrapEventType=add(10)
- Link card addition

scfComponentEvent
scfTrapEventType=add(10)
Similarly, the following SNMP Trap on the PCIe card addition is sent by mistake in a system with a PCIe card connected.
scfComponentEvent
scfTrapEventType=add(10)
Workaround There is no effective workaround.
This incorrectly sent SNMP Trap does not affect the behavior of the PCI expansion unit or the PCIe card.
RTI No. RTIF2-141204-001
Model SPARC M10-1, SPARC M10-4, SPARC M10-4S
Description If the guest domain has been kept active for a long time, powering off and on the physical partition (PPAR) may cause the guest domain time to shift.
This phenomenon occurs under the following conditions.
- A guest domain is configured (*1), and

- a long period of time passes after the ldm add-spconfig command is executed from Oracle VM Server for SPARC (*2), and

- a physical partition is powered on or reset

*1 Time deviation does not occur on the control domain.

*2 Time deviation comes to about 20 seconds per month.
Workaround Immediately before powering off a physical partition or resetting it, execute the ldm addspconfig from Oracle VM Server for SPARC, and store the latest guest domain configuration information on the XSCF.
[How to restore]
If the time of a guest domain has shifted, start up Oracle Solaris in single user mode, and synchronize the time.
[Example] Setting of 18:30:00 on June 27, 2014 # date 0627183014.00

Workaround There is no effective workaround.
If no message appears, there are no faulty components. You can continue system operation.
RTI No. RTIF2-140616-001
Model SPARC M10-1
Description The showhardconf(8) command executed on a SPARC M10-1 does not display [Type] for the power supply unit (PSU). Either "Type: A" or "Type: B" should be displayed as the PSU type. The meaning of each value of "Type" is as follows:
- Type: A: PSU for SPARC64 X

- Type: B: PSU for SPARC64 X+
Workaround When you execute the showhardconf(8) command, it displays "FRU-Part-Number:CAXXXXXXXXX-X/xxxxxxx ;" as part of the PSU information. You can determine the PSU type by checking the value of "CAXXXXX-XXXX-X" in this information.
- If the value of CAXXXXX-XXXX-X is "CA01022-0750-M"

  Type: A: PSU for SPARC64 X
- If the value of CAXXXXX-XXXX-X is "CA01022-0751-M"

  Type: B: PSU for SPARC64 X+
If multiple PSU types are mounted mixed, you can determine the PSU type by checking the value of "XXXXXX" in the error log "Code:80000000-XXXXXX0000ff0000ffxxxxxxxxxx00000000000000" output by the showlogs error command.
- If the value of XXXXXX is "002400"

  Type: A: PSU for SPARC64 X
- If the value of XXXXXX is "002401"

  Type: B: PSU for SPARC64 X+
RTI No. RTIF2-140616-002
Model SPARC M10-1, SPARC M10-4, SPARC M10-4S
Description When the procedure below is executed, the error message "An internal error has occurred. Please contact your system administrator." is displayed at execution of the prtfru(8) command and the command abnormally terminates.
1. Turn on the input power and then execute the rebootxscf(8) or switchscf(8) command to start or reset the XSCF.

2. Execute the snapshot(8) command.

3. Execute the prtfru(8) command.
Workaround After starting or resetting the XSCF, execute the prtfru(8) command before executing the snapshot(8) command.
[How to restore]
Execute the rebootxscf -a command to reset all XSCFs.
RTI No. RTIF2-140606-001
Model SPARC M10-1, SPARC M10-4, SPARC M10-4S
Description Suppose that a cluster system is built to fulfill the following condition: it is composed of multiple SPARC M10 system chassis, each of which includes 10 or more guest domains (10 or more cluster nodes) running in 1 physical partition (PPAR). Moreover, PRIMECLUSTER software is installed on each of these guest domains. Alternatively, the cluster system is composed of multiple PPARs within the SPARC M10 system chassis. If you execute the poweroff -f command on one PPAR to forcibly turn off the power to that PPAR, the XSCF may slow down, panic, and then reset.
Workaround Confirm that less than 10 cluster nodes are included in one PPAR that exists on an instance of the SPARC M10-1, SPARC M10-4, or SPARC M10-4S.
[How to restore]
The system will be available as is because processing of the poweroff(8) command continues after an XSCF panic and reset.
RTI No. RTIF2-140606-004
Model SPARC M10-4S
Description Suppose that you execute the addboard(8) and reset por commands to add a system board (PSB) to a physical partition (PPAR) that fulfills both of the conditions below. You may see an error message "No analytical target" repeatedly. Also, Oracle Solaris running on this PPAR may hang.
- The SPARC M10-4S (including a crossbar box) has a building-block configuration.

- Power is supplied only to a PPAR made up of one PSB.
Workaround To add a PSB to a PPAR that fulfills both of the conditions above, use one of the following methods:
- Turn off the power to the PPAR, and then execute the addboard(8) command to add a PSB.

- After executing the addboard(8) command to add a PSB, turn off the power to the PPAR, turn it on again, and then rebuild the PPAR.

- Using the DR function, execute the addboard(8) command to add a PSB.

[How to restore]
- If the error message "No analytical target" is not displayed

Execute the poweroff(8) command to turn off the power to the PPAR, and then execute the poweron(8) command to turn on the power to the PPAR.

- If the error message "No analytical target" is displayed

Execute the poweroff -f command to forcibly turn off the power to the PPAR and then execute the poweron(8) command to turn on the power to the PPAR.
RTI No. RTIF2-140606-008
Model SPARC M10-4S
Description Suppose you attempt to use dynamic reconfiguration of physical partitions (PPARs) to add a system board (PSB) with the addboard -c configure command or disconnect a PSB with the deleteboard -c unassign or deleteboard -c disconnect command. If your attempt satisfies any of the following conditions, switching between master and standby XSCFs occurs.
If the rebooting XSCF in the following conditions is the standby XSCF, it becomes the master XSCF after the switching. The previous master XSCF is reset and deactivated.
[Condition]
- In the case of addboard

- The XSCF for the PSB to be added is rebooting.

- The PSB is to be deleted from a PPAR, and the XSCF for any of the PSBs making up the PPAR is rebooting.

- In the case of deleteboard

- The XSCF for one of the PSBs making up the PPAR from which the PSB is to be deleted is rebooting.
Workaround If there is a standby XSCF that fulfills one of the conditions above, execute the addboard(8) or deleteboard(8) command after the standby XSCF has rebooted.
Check whether the XSCF has rebooted, by executing the showhardconf(8) command to confirm that the [Status] of the SPARC M10-4S chassis (BB#xx) that includes the XSCF is "Normal".
[Example]
- The XSCF at BB#02 is running.

XSCF> showhardconf
SPARC M10-4S;
--- Omitted ---

BB#02 Status:Normal; Role:Slave; Ver:2220h; Serial:1234567890;
- The XSCF at BB#02 is rebooting.

XSCF> showhardconf
SPARC M10-4S;
--- Omitted ---

BB#02 Status:Cannot communicate;
[How to restore]
Even if switching between master and standby XSCFs occurs, you can continue using the system because the addboard(8) or deleteboard(8) command has been executed correctly.
If the previous master XSCF has stopped, execute the following procedure:
1. Execute the poweroff -a command to turn off the power to all PPARs.

2. Turn off the input power to the SPARC M10-4S chassis configured on the master and standby XSCFs, and then turn it on again.

3. Log in to the master XSCF and execute the showhardconf(8) command to confirm that the [Status] of the SPARC M10-4S chassis for the standby XSCF is "Normal".
RTI No. RTIF2-140605-001
Model SPARC M10-4S
Description Suppose the following scenario. You turn on the power to a physical partition (PPAR) that consists of multiple SPARC M10-4S chassis. The PPAR/domain enters a state that is between self-diagnosis test (POST) completion (Initialization Complete) and OpenBoot PROM start completion (OpenBoot Running). If the XSCF in a SPARC M10-4S in the PPAR resets in this state, you may be unable to switch to the control domain console.
You can confirm that this event has occurred by executing the showlogs event command and confirming that an event log for console path switching was registered during the time between POST diagnosis completion and OpenBoot PROM start completion.
[Example] Event log message issued when PPAR-ID is 0
POST Diag complete from PPAR (PPAR ID 0)
--- Omitted ---

PPAR ID 0: Console path is switched
--- Omitted ---

PPARID 0 GID 00000000 state change (OpenBoot Running)
Workaround There is no effective workaround.
[How to restore]
Perform one of the following operations:
- Execute the rebootxscf -a command.

- From XSCF Web, reset all XSCFs.

- Turn off the power to the PPAR, and then turn it on again.
RTI No. RTIF2-140605-002
Model SPARC M10-4S
Description Suppose that all but one of the system boards (PSBs) that make up a physical partition (PPAR) are faulty. If you attempt to use the DR function to disconnect the normal PSB by executing the deleteboard(8) command, this command times out and terminates abnormally. In addition, if you execute the deleteboard(8) command using the DR function to disconnect another PSB in the same PPAR, the command always times out. Furthermore, you can no longer connect to the control domain console by executing the console(8) command.

Description On a physical partition (PPAR) that is composed of several SPARC M10-4S chassis (system boards), after a system board has been degraded due to failure, if you execute the setpciboxdio(8) command to disable/enable the direct I/O feature of the PCI cards mounted in the PCI expansion unit attached to the degraded chassis without powering off the PPAR first, the following message is output and the command fails:
This operation cannot be done because the PPAR including a PSB of the target BB is powered on.
This symptom occurs when a system board is in a state like the following, which is shown by either the showhardconf(8) or showboards(8) command.
[Example] When PSB#01-0 (BB#01) has been degraded.
