Motherboard diag


Hi Frndz,

In Netapp 3240, ontap 8.0.2 P7 mode we like to run a motherboard diag with the help of sldiag in maintainence mode,But in the "sldiag device show" it doesnt list the motherboard.

Is there any other command to do the motherboard diag ?

No, you have to run tests for all individual devices on motherboard. The following is currently recommended after motherboard replacement:

These devices need to be disabled: 'sas', 'fcal', 'nic', if present, 'acpm' and 'pam2/fcache'.

So you basically take default list, disable tests for above devices if present and run diagnostic.


In other FAS model, we have option to run diag seperately for motherboard right .whether is it specific about model.


Well, I do not know whether this is hardware or software specific. But this is how sldiag works.
