Re: Fw: Problem report from HMC01NEW.corp.dekko.com



fixed

Wow, they went from 7.8 to 8.8 in one swoop? Seems like keeping some
measure of realism on version numbers is no longer in any developer's
agenda... Shall we prepare for HMC code v30 in a few months like firefox?
My HMC's usually dont stay even a day up (i don't have production systems)
but a few of my clients on older releases (v7.3.5) have been up for months
and in one case years (that one led to a nice out-of-disk error due to a
missing fix)...

Rob,

Your HMC is 8.8.1, fairly new.
How long has 8.8.1 been out?
Could this be an HMC code issue?

Lucky you...

For the past two Saturday's I've gotten a wake up call from IBM at 5am
telling me my cache battery is in a warning state...

Even though replacement had already been scheduled with service...

It's nice to get a call when something is wrong...but I'd prefer a bit of
common since on what problems need a 5am Saturday morning call :)

Brand new HMC.
Last rebooted July 8.
Reporting error.
IBM says there is an internal document, H194212, that says these
should be rebooted at least once a month. Mine was less than two
weeks. Yet I am
getting:
E212E111
Explanation
Licensed Internal Code failure on the Hardware Management Console (HMC).
Response
Memory Alert; RSS value for a process is too big Error reason = RSS size
.


IBM had me run
who -r
This reported that I last rebooted July 8 at 21:53 Then they had me
run monhmc disk -r 0 I can't break out of it and will probably kill
putty shell.

IBM says disk is fine. Just memory fluke. Fecal matter occurs.
Reboot regularly. Won't affect operations of monitored Power systems.
(unless, of course, you are using your system console).
Hint: Reboot HMC right before long running processes like dedicated
save, OS upgrade, etc.
