Re: B4xx SRC



fixed

Ok, I found it. And it appears I may have guessed correctly. 8004 =
interactive card or processor capacity card is the failing item. Makes
sense, since I don't have one. Now I need to find the right cable and
control panel.

I found the SRC I wrote down when I was last working on this thing. It is
B427 8004.

It's supposed to be a 9406-270. It's really a pile of boards and cables
on my bench. I had to move it so I could get some real work done this week,
I'll have to fire it back up over the weekend get the exact SRC. I wrote it
down somewhere but can't seem to find it right now.

I have a feeling that the SRC is because something is missing. I don't
think I have the right control panel. The one I have has one connector on
it. I found some others on ebay that look like they have a VPD module in
them, and a second connector.

I've dug around and found various lists of SRCs, but cannot find any

are documented somewhere?

What hardware; i.e. system model and generation of CPU?

The v7r1 InfoCenter lists only some very specific SRCB4##XXXX, with
each indicated to mean "It may indicate a system processor failure."

The midrange wiki offers something similar:
http://wiki.midrange.com/index.php/SRC
"... Problem: Machine problems; SRC: B3xx xxxx – B4xx xxxx; Description
: System processor hardware machine check ..."

A document found on the web [with no publication number found]
documents a number [~21] of srcB400xxxx [apparently POWER7 processors
and "associated models" entitled: "Power Systems System reference codes
(Bxxx)"]

http://pic.dhe.ibm.com/infocenter/powersys/v3r1m5/topic/p7eai/p7eai_SRC2.pdf

The specific SRC encountered, searched in its symptom keyword form,
might be useful if any issues [such as defects or KB articles] have ever
been reported to IBM and\or published by IBM; i.e.: SRCjjjjnnnn

FWiW: Try a web search on both sets of the following delimited
tokens; the latter search tokens located the PDF document I referenced
earlier, for which a link was included:
"System Reference Code" "Bxxx"
"System Reference Code" "B4xx"
