Zombie Filer

Hi All,

 

I'm trying to bring a FAS3140 which is out of support back from the dead.  The system is an HA pair which is currently in failover as controller 2 has apparently died.

 

I've tried reseating the downed controller.  Just wondering if anyone has any bright ides?  I wondered if it could be one of the PCI cards causing it for example?

 

 

 

events all reveals lots of this:

Re: Zombie Filer

Does the filer even boot? When you connect to the SP and type "system console", do you get into the bootloader? if so, try "autoboot" and post the results here. If you get no response at all (i.e. only the "press ctrl-d to return to SP" or whatever it says) and it doesn't react to ctrl-c then it's probably busted. But if you get a bootloader prompt or even some boot messages that could help a lot in diagnosing.

 

You could also try the serial console instead of the SP, in case it's just the SP that is busted. Try connecting via serial and powering up the system. You should see boot messages from the BIOS and then get a bootloader prompt
