Problems Resolved in Version 1170 of the PCI Expansion Unit Firmware


Problems Resolved in Version 1170 of the PCI Expansion Unit Firmware
The following table lists the problems resolved in version 1170 of the PCI expansion unit firmware.
Table 7-8  Problems Resolved in Version 1170 of the PCI Expansion Unit Firmware
RTI No. RTIF2-210118-001
Model SPARC M10-1, SPARC M10-4, SPARC M10-4S
Description When "PCI Express lane is degraded" is registered in the error log of the PCI expansion unit, a FRU may be mistakenly displayed as the target.
Workaround There is no effective workaround.
Update the PCI expansion unit firmware to 1170 or later, and the XCP firmware to XCP 2220 or later.
RTI No. RTIF2-140902-001
Model SPARC M10-1, SPARC M10-4, SPARC M10-4S
Description If input power for the PCI expansion unit is disconnected (AC OFF) or power failure occurs, a PSU "Information" level error log is supposed to be registered. However, a failure level error log "Alarm" is incorrectly registered. At this point, CHECK LED on the front of the PCI expansion unit lights up, "Faulted" is displayed on the PSU status, and the error message "AC Fail" is displayed.
You can check the error message of this phenomenon by executing the showlogs error command, and check the status by executing the showhardconf command.
[Error message example]
XSCF> showlogs error
Date: Jul 10 16:25:02 JST 2014
    Code: 80000400-00d4000000ff0000ff-1100002a0000000000000000
    Status: Alarm                  Occurred: Jul 10 16:24:57.269 JST 2014
    FRU: /BB#0/PCI#8/PCIBOX#2003/PSU#1
    Msg: AC FAIL
[PSU status example]

 :
      * PSU#1; Status:Faulted; Serial:FEJD1201000170;
Workaround Update the PCI expansion unit firmware to 1170 or later, and the XCP firmware to XCP 2220 or later. There is no impact on system operation from this phenomenon.
RTI No. RTIF2-140902-002
Model SPARC M10-1, SPARC M10-4, SPARC M10-4S
Description Link card fault may be incorrectly registered if logs related to one PCI expansion unit are registered more than once in a short time (5 to 10 minutes) when one or more physical partitions (PPAR) are operating in the configuration with PCI expansion units connected.
For details on how to check this symptom, see "Confirmation Method of RTIF2-140902-002."
Workaround Ignore this error message as it has no effect on the system.
RTI No. RTIF2-131224-003
Model SPARC M10-1, SPARC M10-4, SPARC M10-4S
Description The following error messages related to the link board may be displayed if the link board with Part Number "CA20365-B60X007AD/7061035" is connected to the PCI expansion unit.
[Error message example 1]
FRU: /BB#0/PCI#3/PCIBOX#1234/IOB,/BB#0/PCI#3/PCIBOX#1234/LINKBD
Msg: PCI access error
[Error message example 2]
FRU: /BB#0/PCI#3/PCIBOX#1234/IOB
Msg: PCI access error
[Error message example 3]
FRU:
/BB#0/PCI#3/LINK,/BB#0/PCI#3/LINK/LINKCBL#-,/BB#0/PCI#3/PCIBOX#1234/LINKBD,*
Msg: PCI Express lane is degraded

The Part Number can be checked in the "Part Num" line upon executing the ioxadm -v list command.
[Example]
XSCF> ioxadm -v list
Location Type FW Ver Serial Num Part Num State
--- Omitted ---

PCIBOX#9011/LINKBD BOARD - PP134701CJ CA20365-B60X 007AD/7061035 On
Workaround There is no effective workaround.
Confirmation Method of RTIF2-140902-002
The phenomenon of RTIF2-140902-002 can be checked in the following ways.
  1. Executing the showlogs error -v command outputs the following.
    - FRU displays "LINK" or "LINKBD"

    - Msg displays "TWI access error"

    - The first byte in the fourth line of the Diagnostic Code is "07"

  1. When the showlogs event command or showlogs error command is executed on the same PCI expansion unit within 10 minutes, the multiple logs shown below are registered.
    - 12 or more event logs related to the PCIe card are registered upon executing the showlogs event command. The number of event logs is calculated as follows depending on the event type.

    - PCIe card insertion event: 2

    - Event other than PCIe card insertion: 1

    For example, if a PCIe card is repeatedly inserted and removed four times, eight message lines are displayed. However, the number of registered event logs is 12, calculated by multiplying three events by four. This applies to this case.
