  9. Problems Resolved in Version 1100 of the PCI Expansion Unit Firmware

Problems Resolved in Version 1100 of the PCI Expansion Unit Firmware


Problems Resolved in Version 1100 of the PCI Expansion Unit Firmware
The following table lists the problems resolved in version 1100 of the PCI expansion unit firmware.
Table 7-13  Problems Resolved in Version 1100 of the PCI Expansion Unit Firmware and Workarounds for Them
RTI No. RTIF2-130703-005
Model SPARC M10-1, SPARC M10-4, SPARC M10-4S
Description When physical partitions (PPARs) or the I/O domain is started, the PCIe card or link board mounted in the PCI expansion unit may be erroneously detected as having an error.
[Example of PCIe card message]
FRU: /BB#0/PCI#3/PCIBOX#1234/PCI#3
Msg: PCICARD failed

[Example of link board message]
FRU: /BB#0/PCI#0/PCIBOX#1234/LINKBD
Msg: TWI access error
Workaround The display of this error message does not affect the operation.
When this problem occurs in the link board, the CHECK LED on the PCI expansion unit turns on. However, if this problem does not occur at the next start of the PPAR, the CHECK LED turns off.
RTI No. RTIF2-130703-006
Model SPARC M10-1, SPARC M10-4, SPARC M10-4S
Description If the serial number of the PCI expansion unit that is displayed upon the execution of the ioxadm -v list command consists entirely of 0's ("0000000000"), the following occurs: Hardware errors detected after the input power to the PCI expansion unit is turned on but before the power to the first physical partition (PPAR) is turned on are not registered as errors.
Workaround Do not replace an I/O board together with a fan backplane. Also, do not mount in the PCI expansion unit an I/O board or fan backplane that has been used previously in another PCI expansion unit.
If the serial number of the PCI expansion unit that is displayed in response to execution of the ioxadm -v list command consists entirely of 0's ("0000000000"), execute the ioxadm(8) command of the XSCF firmware to restore the serial number.
In this case, you need the fieldeng privilege.
For details, see "Restoring the Serial Number of the PCI Expansion Unit (RTIF2-130703-006)."
Restoring the Serial Number of the PCI Expansion Unit (RTIF2-130703-006)
If the serial number of the PCI expansion unit that is displayed in response to execution of the ioxadm -v list command consists entirely of 0's ("0000000000"), execute the ioxadm(8) command of the XSCF firmware to restore the serial number.
In this case, you need the fieldeng privilege.
XSCF> ioxadm [-fvAM] serial target serial_num
For target, specify the identifier of the target PCI expansion unit. In this case, "PCIBOX#0000" is specified. For serial_num, specify the serial number of the PCI expansion unit before the change in the format of "nnnnnnnnnn". The serial number is found on the label on the chassis of the PCI expansion unit.
This command replaces the serial number and identifier of the PCI expansion unit. By executing the ioxadm -v list command, you can confirm that the serial number and identifier have been replaced.
In the following example, the serial number of the PCI expansion unit is "2121212006".
