FAS2040 Automatic shutdown sequence cancelled

My out-of-support FAS2040 says exactly once a hour "monitor.shutdown.cancel:warning]: Automatic shutdown sequence cancelled". No other messages are printed on neither console nor message -logfile. Only the other head does this, other head does not. Outputs of 'system health' and environment -commands do not reveal anything.

 

 

Obviously an automatic shutdown is cancelled, but what causes the shutdown and why it is cancelled?

 

Any indication of where to look is appreciated.

hwaltari -

 

The place to look is the syslog translator tool:

http://mysupport.netapp.com/eservice/ems

 

Unfortunately it doesn't say much about this message.

 

I hope this response has been helpful to you.

Can you please run "ups status" on the system to see if it may have been configured for a UPS at some point?

Re: FAS2040 Automatic shutdown sequence cancelled

Alex,

 

Thanks for your suggestion. 

I got reply "'ups' commands not supported"

 

And if my memory serves me right it has not been never implemented, either. 

 

Please note that the version is 8.1.4 7-Mode

Thanks - just wanted to quickly check that.

 

Can you connect to the BMC and run "sensors show" and provide the output? and "environment status" from ONTAP.

Alex,

Re: FAS2040 Automatic shutdown sequence cancelled

This all looks fine.

 

Do you know when it started? Is it HA or a single controller, and is it logged on both controllers or just one?

 

My guess is a system sensors problem that asserts and then clears. Going through similar cases (this message on a FAS2040), it can happen after a power supply is replaced, or turned off and then on again - shutting the system down completely, removing power, then restarting it can resolve it in some cases, but in others a new system board is required. 

 

If you wish to post the contents of /etc/messages over an hour - so between when two warnings come up - may help narrow it down. Or may not - and even if it does, the solution is the same - restart, then replace system board if problems persist. Remember that all attachments are publicly viewable, so you may wish to remove or censor some information.

Alex,

 

This is a HA-pair, and the other controller does not produce the message. And frankly I do not have any idea when this has started. The filer is about to be decommissioned, just waiting for the last projects to cool down.

 

I'll try the shutdown-remove power units-restart -sequence.

 

Heres a fresh snippet of the messages

Re: FAS2040 Automatic shutdown sequence cancelled

Sounds like a good plan.
