RTI No. RTIF2-140617-001
Model SPARC M10-1, SPARC M10-4, SPARC M10-4S
Description When the showhardconf -u command is executed on a system connected to a PCI expansion unit, the number of PCI cards installed on the PCI expansion unit is erroneously displayed as "11" (the maximum number of cards that can be installed).
Workaround There is no effective workaround.
To check information about the PCI cards installed in the PCI expansion unit, execute the showhardconf(8) command with no options.
RTI No. RTIF2-140605-003
Model SPARC M10-4S
Description Suppose that an XSCF failure occurs on one SPARC M10-4S chassis in a physical partition (PPAR) and the CHECK LED is on and the READY LED is off on the XSCF. If you attempt to power on this PPAR, the system erroneously judges that an error has occurred on every SPARC M10-4S chassis in this PPAR and you cannot power on the PPAR.
Workaround There is no effective workaround.
Follow the maintenance procedure for XSCF failures to replace the CPU memory unit lower (CMUL) on the faulty SPARC M10-4S chassis.
RTI No. RTIF2-140605-004
Model SPARC M10-4S
Description When you add or replace one SPARC M10-4S chassis (BB#00 or BB#01) or crossbar box chassis (XBBOX#80 or XBBOX#81), power control schedule settings for automatic power-on/off are not synchronized between the existing and additional/replacement chassis.
If master/standby XSCF switching is performed in this state, automatic power-on/off is not performed because the power control schedule settings remain unavailable.
Workaround There is no effective workaround.
Execute the following procedure to synchronize power control schedule settings for automatic power-on/off between the master and standby XSCFs:
1. Execute the showpowerschedule -m list command to confirm that the power control schedule has been registered.
If the power control schedule has not been registered, re-register it by using the addpowerschedule(8) and setpowerschedule(8) commands.

2. Execute the setpowerschedule -c control command to enable or disable the power control schedule.
RTI No. RTIF2-140410-004
Model SPARC M10-1, SPARC M10-4, SPARC M10-4S
Description If a CPU error occurs while powering on a physical partition (PPAR), an erroneous error log may be registered. This symptom can be confirmed by using the showlogs error -v command.
If the result of the showlogs error -v command is "Msg: SP InternalError Occurred", and the first 4 bytes of the 5th line of the [Diagnostic Code] is "01920212", it corresponds to this symptom.
[Example]

RTI No. RTIF2-131213-018
Model SPARC M10-1, SPARC M10-4, SPARC M10-4S
Description If the XSCF has disabled the NTP client setup, the time difference between the XSCF and the hypervisor of each physical partition (PPAR) is mistakenly updated, and the time of the logical domain may be misaligned after the PPAR is rebooted.
Workaround Enable the NTP client setup of the XSCF by executing the setntp -s client -c enable command, and synchronize the XSCF with the upper-level NTP server.
Otherwise, perform the following procedure.
1. Execute the showdateoffset(8) command before powering on or rebooting the PPAR and confirm the time difference between the XSCF and the hypervisor.

2. If the time difference is too large, execute the resetdateoffset(8) command with the PPAR in the stopped state in order to reset the time difference.

3. After powering on the PPAR, set the Oracle Solaris time again.
RTI No. RTIF2-131213-020
Model SPARC M10-1, SPARC M10-4, SPARC M10-4S
Description Due to the retry functionality of the XSCF, if any abnormality occurs in the recoverable backup memory inside the PSU backplane (PSUBP) more than three times, the XSCF regards it incorrectly as a fixed error. That may prevent the XSCF from starting. In such a case, the "REBOOT: COUNTER ERROR" message is displayed.
Workaround There is no effective workaround.
[How to restore]
Re-execute power off and on.
RTI No. RTIF2-131129-001
Model SPARC M10-1, SPARC M10-4, SPARC M10-4S
Description "Code" appears in memory information displayed by the showhardconf(8) command. If there is mounted memory whose last eight digits of "Code" begin with "00", execution of any of the following actions may result in incorrectly identified memory. The memory would have a value of 0 for both its "Code" and size.
- Execute the restoredefaults factory command

- Execute the initbb(8) command

- Change the mounting point of memory

[Example 1]
XSCF> showhardconf
 :
  MEM#10B Status:Normal;
   + Code:ce8001M393B2G70QH0-YK0 0000-00511571;
   + Type:07; Size:16 GB;
[Example 2]

Workaround Apply the latest version of the XCP, and then execute power off and on.
RTI No. RTIF2-131126-001
Model SPARC M10-1, SPARC M10-4, SPARC M10-4S
Description Suppose that a system satisfying one of the conditions described in [Conditions] sets the remote power management function. If Oracle Solaris is running and one of the events mentioned in [Event] occurs, an external I/O device may be erroneously powered off.

[Condition]
- Multiple SPARC M10 systems are registered in the remote power management group, and the physical partitions other than those of the SPARC M10 system that resets the XSCF are powered off.


[Event]
- A firmware update was executed from the flashupdate(8) command and XSCF Web, and the XSCF was rebooted.

- The XSCF was reactivated from the rebootxscf(8) command and XSCF Web, and the XSCF was rebooted

- The XSCF was rebooted because of a failure.
Workaround Apply either of the following countermeasures:
- Before firmware update or XSCF reboot, execute the setremotepwrmgmt -c disable command to disable the remote power management function. Subsequently, update the firmware or reboot the XSCF. After the XSCF has been activated, execute the setremotepwrmgmt -c enable command to enable the remote power management function.

- Disable the remote power management function with the setremotepwrmgmt -c disable command and then manually power on the external I/O device.
RTI No. RTIF2-131126-002
Model SPARC M10-4S
Description If one of BB#0/BB#01/XBBOX#80/XBBOX#81 is added or replaced, the synchronous processing of the CPU Activation key in the master/standby XSCF will fail. Subsequently, if the master and standby are switched, the CPU Activation key may be lost. This generates the following phenomena.
[If the PPAR power is on]
The PPAR power is powered off because of a CPU Activation violation.

[If the PPAR power is off]
PPAR power-on fails because there is an insufficient number of CPU Activations.
Workaround After addition/replacement, the synchronous processing of the CPU Activation key is performed when the following is executed.
- If the master/standby XSCF is not switched

Execute the rebootxscf -a or addcodactivation(8) command from the master XSCF that requested addition/replacement.

- If the master/standby XSCF has been switched

Execute the switchscf(8) command to return the master XSCF to the pre-addition/replacement state. After that, execute the rebootxscf -a or addcodactivation(8) command.

Note - Do not perform the following operations before restoring the master XSCF to its original state by executing the switchscf(8) command. If these operations are performed, it may be necessary to register the CPU Activation key again.

- rebootxscf -a

- addcodactivation(8)

- deletecodactivation(8)

- Input power off/on
RTI No. RTIF2-131126-004
Model SPARC M10-1, SPARC M10-4, SPARC M10-4S
Description When the firmware update of the PCI expansion unit and link card is complete, the firmware version of the PCI expansion unit is erroneously displayed. Specifically, "PCIBOX version" of the event log displays the pre-update version, while "last version" displays the post-update version.
[Example] Version displayed after an update from 1120 to 1130
- Incorrect

LINKCARD=1, bank=1, PCIBOX version=1120: last version=1130

- Correct

LINKCARD=1, bank=1, PCIBOX version=1130: last version=1120
Workaround There is no effective workaround. Replace the version number.
Moreover, update the XCP firmware to XCP 2090 or later.
RTI No. RTIF2-131112-002
Model SPARC M10-4S
Description Suppose that the system uses a crossbar box and contains two or more physical partitions (PPARs) each consisting of 2BB or more. In this system, if a hardware failure that affects all the PPARs occurs, the failed part is degraded such that the PPAR reactivation processing may fail, causing all the PPAR power supplies to remain turned off.
Workaround There is no effective workaround.
The failed parts are degraded.
Power on the PPAR again.
RTI No. RTIF2-131112-003
Model SPARC M10-1, SPARC M10-4, SPARC M10-4S
Description If the testsb(8), diagxbu(8), or flashupdate -c sync command is executed during the execution of the flashupdate(8) command, the error log "FMEM serious error" is registered, and the testsb(8), diagxbu(8), or flashupdate -c sync command may fail.
Workaround Do not execute the testsb(8), diagxbu(8), or flashupdate -c sync command while the flashupdate(8) command is being executed.
To confirm the completion of the flashupdate(8) command, execute the showlogs event command and then check for the following message.
XCP update has been completed (XCP version=xxxx:last version=yyyy)
RTI No. RTIF2-131112-008
Model SPARC M10-1, SPARC M10-4, SPARC M10-4S
Description Suppose that the error log "SCF Diagnosis error on System backup memory" is registered, which is related to the PSU backplane (PSUBP) or XSCF interface unit (XSCFIFU). The FRU of the error log registered immediately after that error log may not be correct.
In this case, any one of the following messages is displayed to indicate that the FRU PSUBP or XSCFIFU is not correct.
Msg: SCF Diagnosis initialize RTC
FRU: PSUBP or XSCFIFU
Or
Msg: SCF Diagnosis error on XXXX
FRU: PSUBP or XSCFIFU

XXXX indicates any of the following FRUs:
CPU, L2 cache, SDRAM, RTC, SPI FMEM, NAND
Workaround There is no effective workaround.
Replace the FRU as follows.
For SPARC M10-1: FRU: /MBU
For SPARC M10-4: FRU: /BB#00/CMUL
For SPARC M10-4S: FRU: /BB#xx/CMUL or FRU: /XBBOX#xx/XSCFU
RTI No. RTIF2-131112-011
Model SPARC M10-1, SPARC M10-4, SPARC M10-4S
Description If the physical partition (PPAR) is powered on and then the ioxadm(8) command is executed before the power-on processing is complete, the error log "SCF process down detected" is registered, and the ioxadm(8) command may fail.
Workaround Do not execute the ioxadm(8) command until the PPAR power-on processing is complete.
You can check the progress of the PPAR power-on processing by executing the showpparstatus(8) command. If the "Running" message appears as a result of executing the showpparstatus(8) command, it indicates that the PPAR power-on processing has been completed.
Once the PPAR power-on processing has been completed, execute the ioxadm(8) command again.
RTI No. RTIF2-131112-012
Model SPARC M10-1, SPARC M10-4, SPARC M10-4S
Description Suppose that the error log "FAN speed too high" is registered because of an excessive fan rotation count. Subsequently, if an event that changes the fan rotation speed occurs, the fan rotation speed may not be switched to the correct value and instead may be switched to level 5 (full speed).
If an event that changes the fan rotation speed occurs, the following event logs are registered. However, the displayed fan rotation speed will not be correct. The actual fan rotation speed level is 5, which is full speed.

- Low temperature was detected at air inlet. FANs are changed to speed (level-1) mode

- Low temperature was detected at air inlet. FANs are changed to speed (level-2) mode

- Middle temperature was detected at air inlet. FANs are changed to speed (level-3) mode

- High temperature was detected at air inlet. FANs are changed to speed (level-4) mode

- Air outlet temperature recovered from warning state
Workaround There is no effective workaround.
[How to restore]
Replace the fan of the detected excessive rotation speed error.
RTI No. RTIF2-131112-014
Model SPARC M10-1, SPARC M10-4, SPARC M10-4S
Description If the following mail server is being used and REMCS registration or REMCS environment setting is performed, a communication timeout with the mail server is detected, causing processing to fail.
- Windows ExchangeServer

- E-PORT

- qmail
Workaround After changing the mail server to be used to sendmail or postfix, perform REMCS registration or REMCS environment setting. If it is difficult to change the mail server, update the firmware to XCP 2090 or later.
RTI No. RTIF2-131112-015

Description If the initbb(8) or replacefru(8) command is executed, an event log stating "Change Master Failed" may be registered.
Workaround There is no effective workaround.
Ignore the event log.
RTI No. RTIF2-131107-001
Model SPARC M10-4S
Description If the XSCF BB control cable is faulty or loose or if an XSCF failure occurs, it may take several hours to disconnect or reset the power supply of the physical partition (PPAR) consisting of multiple SPARC M10-4S units.
Workaround There is no effective workaround.
RTI No. RTIF2-131023-003
Model SPARC M10-1, SPARC M10-4, SPARC M10-4S
Description OID of scfDomainInfoGroup is duplicated and defined in the MIB definition file for XSCF expansion. Therefore, any attempt to install the MIB definition file for XSCF expansion in the server management software (e.g., JP1/Integrated Management manufactured by Hitachi) may fail.
Workaround Delete the line of text of the duplicated OID from the MIB definition file for XSCF expansion. Then, install the MIB definition file for XSCF expansion again.
The line of text to be deleted is the one defining scfDomainInfoGroup containing "::= {
scfMIBObjectGroups 14 }".
[Example]
For the MIB definition file for XSCF expansion (XSCF-SP-MIB_2050.mib), delete the following lines 3558 to 3566.
--------------

3558: scfDomainInfoGroup OBJECT-GROUP
3559: OBJECTS {
