RTI No. RTIF2-150129-001
Model SPARC M10-1
Description
[1] If the input voltage drops, usually a power failure notification is issued and the physical partition is powered off. However, if the input voltage to the SPARC M10-1 drops instantaneously, no power failure notification is issued and the physical partition is powered off.

[2] During the physical partition power-off due to the trouble in [1], if you execute the console(8) command to switch to the control domain console where you have entered a character or input a key, the following error log may be detected and the motherboard unit (MBU) may need to be replaced.

MBC-CPU interface fatal error
Check all the following five conditions are satisfied to see if the trouble in [1] occurs.
- Any of the following error logs is registered:

 - MBU:SCF:failed to read/write interrupt mask register

 - MBU:SCF:failed to read/write active status register

 - Voltage out of range error

- Oracle Solaris is not accessible via the network.

- No power failure notification is issued. (*1)

- The physical partition status display that you can check with the showpparstatus(8) command is not updated and indicates the physical partition is active (the status is other than "Powered Off").

- You can access the XSCF, but the execution result of the showlogs power command does not include "SCF Reset" indicating that the XSCF is reset.

*1 If a power failure notification is issued, usually the following log is registered with the showlogs event command.

PSU input power failure(/PSU#0)
PSU input power failure(/PSU#1)
In addition, the following error log is detected in many cases when the trouble in [1] occurs:
failed to read/write extended active status register
Workaround There is no effective workaround.
If "MBC-CPU interface fatal error" is detected, replace the MBU.
If "MBC-CPU interface fatal error" is not detected, turn off the input power supply and then turn it on again.
RTI No. RTIF2-150126-001
Model SPARC M10-1, SPARC M10-4, SPARC M10-4S
Description If the XSCF is reset while the system is operating with the remote power management function enabled, the power of an external I/O device may be turned off incorrectly.
Workaround Every time after the physical partition (PPAR) is powered on, disable the remote power management function with the RCIL, and then enable it again.
This also applies when the PPAR is automatically powered on due to a power failure, power recovery, the auto power control system (APCS), RCIL, etc.
[Example]
XSCF> setremotepwrmgmt -c disable
XSCF> setremotepwrmgmt -c enable
Perform the following procedure when you cannot perform this workaround due to a system operation issue.
- When two or more SPARC M10 systems are registered to the remote power management group, do not reset an XSCF at the same time as another SPARC M10 system's XSCF.

- When only a single SPARC M10 system is registered to the remote power management group, perform either (1) or (2) below.

(1) Disable only the power-off of the remote power management function.

1. Execute "setremotepwrmgmt -c disable" to disable remote power management.

2. Specify "0x01" for the Linkage value in the management file of remote power management.

[Example]
1,1,0x01,00000000000000000000000000000011,0x01,0x00,,,10.20.300.40,0x20,aa:bb:cc:dd:ee:f0,,,,,,,,,,
1,2,0x10,00000000000000000000000000000022,0x01,0x00,,,10.20.300.41,0x20,aa:bb:cc:dd:ee:f1,,,,,,,,,,
3. Execute "setremotepwrmgmt -c config [file name]" to apply the management file.

4. Execute "setremotepwrmgmt -c enable" to enable remote power management.

  (2) Disable the remote power management function.
1. Execute "setremotepwrmgmt -c disable" to disable remote power management.

2. If the external I/O device is an ETERNUS, set the ETERNUS to LOCAL mode for operation.
RTI No. RTIF2-150119-001
Model SPARC M10-1, SPARC M10-4, SPARC M10-4S
Description The message " WARNING: Time of Day clock error: reason [Reversed by YYYY]" or "WARNING: Time of Day clock error: reason [Jumped by YYYY]" may appear on the OS console.
Workaround There is no effective workaround.
[How to restore]
If you need accurate time while the NTP client is not set, restart Oracle Solaris so that it references the hardware time. Confirm the time after this restart.
RTI No. RTIF2-141226-001
Model SPARC M10-4S
Description If time synchronization of the master XSCF and the NTP server fails during master/standby XSCF switching, the XSCF time may shift and the ntpd may not start. If ntpd is not active, a message "NTP is unavailable." is output by executing the showntp -l command.
Note that this problem does not occur if the NTP client setting of the XSCF and the NTP server setting are disabled.
Workaround There is no effective workaround.
[How to restore]
If ntpd is not active when the NTP client setting of the XSCF or the NTP server setting is enabled, execute the rebootxscf(8) command to reset the XSCF.
RTI No. RTIF2-141208-001
Model SPARC M10-1, SPARC M10-4, SPARC M10-4S
Description Suppose that the audit system is configured so that writing to audit records stops temporarily when the audit trail reaches its full capacity. An XSCF shell or XSCF Web operation at this time may lead to an XSCF reset due to the mistaken detection of one of the following errors: "Hardware access error." or "SCF panic detected."
This problem occurs even when the XSCF shell is automatically run regularly to monitor the logical domain status by using PRIMECLUSTER software.
You can check the contents of the currently set audit system by using the showaudit(8) command. In the following example, "Policy on full trail" is "suspend," indicating that writing to the audit record has been set to stop temporarily. Also, "Audit space free" is "0," indicating that the audit trail has reached its full capacity.
[Example]
XSCF> showaudit all
Auditing: enabled
Audit space used: 4194304 (bytes)
Audit space free: 0 (bytes)
Records dropped: 0
Policy on full trail: suspend
--- Omitted ---
Workaround Execute the setaudit -p count command to configure the audit system to delete new audit records when the audit trail has reached its full capacity. (Default)
[How to restore]
Perform the following procedure.
1. Perform login authentication using the default user account.

2. Execute the restoredefaults xscf command.
The audit log is erased. You can execute the setaudit command.

3. Execute the setaudit -p count command to configure the audit system to delete new audit records when the audit trail has reached its full capacity. (Default)
RTI No. RTIF2-141111-001
Model SPARC M10-1, SPARC M10-4, SPARC M10-4S
Description On the SPARC M10-1/M10-4 or SPARC M10-4S in a single-chassis configuration, the contents of the scheduled operation setting for automatic power-on/power-off is lost and automatic power-on/ power-off becomes disabled. This occurs even when the PSU backplane (PSUBP) or PSU backplane unit (PSUBPU) and the microSD card are not replaced at the same time, as shown in the following procedure.
1. Turn off the input power (AC OFF) and replace PSUBP or PSUBPU.

2. Turn on the input power (AC ON) and start XSCF.

3. Turn off the input power (AC OFF) and replace the microSD card on the motherboard unit (MBU) or CPU memory unit lower (CMUL).

Note that this problem occurs even if the microSD card is replaced first.
Workaround After the first FRU is replaced, disable the scheduled operation and then enable it again to transfer the contents of the scheduled operation to the replacing FRU. Execute the following procedure.
1. Replace the first FRU. (step 1 in the Description)

2. Disable the scheduled operation.

XSCF> setpowerschedule -a -c control=disable
3. Enable the scheduled operation again.

XSCF> setpowerschedule -a -c control=enable
4. Execute step 2 and the subsequent steps in the Description.

[How to restore]
- If the dumpconfig(8) command is used to save the XSCF setting information, execute the restoreconfig(8) command and restore the XSCF setting information.

- If the XSCF setting information is not saved, execute the setpowerschedule(8) command and reset the scheduled operation.
