Enterprise Manager does not update incident with Exadata Managed Server event for PMEM replacement
(Doc ID 2612484.1)
Last updated on APRIL 13, 2021
Applies to:Enterprise Manager for Exadata - Version 184.108.40.206.0 to 220.127.116.11.0 [Release 13c]
Information in this document applies to any platform.
When a PMEM fault occurs Enterprise Manager will successfully create an incident based on an Exadata MS alert similar to the following example:
6_1 2019-11-04T10:09:33-08:00 critical "PMEM failed. Status : FAILED Manufacturer : Intel Model Number : NMA1XBD128GQS Size : 126GB Serial Number : 8089-a2-1838-00000944 Firmware : Unknown Slot Number : CPU: 1; DIMM: 10 Cell Disk : PM_07_cellserver1 "
However when the PMEM DIMM is replaced the warning and clear alerts are sent in rapid succession from Exadata MS to Enterprise Manager as in the following example.
6_2 2019-11-04T10:31:41-08:00 warning "PMEM was removed. Status : FAILED Manufacturer : Unknown Model Number : Unknown Size : 126GB Serial Number : 8089-a2-1838-00000944 Firmware : Unknown Slot Number : CPU: 1; DIMM: 10 Cell Disk : PM_07_cellserver1 PMEM Cache : Present"
6_3 2019-11-04T10:31:44-08:00 clear "PMEM was replaced. Status : NORMAL Manufacturer : Intel Model Number : NMA1XBD128GQS Size : 126GB Serial Number : 8089-a2-1838-00000a0d Firmware : Unknown Slot Number : CPU: 1; DIMM: 10 Cell Disk : PM_07_cellserver1 PMEM Cache : Present"
In this example the snmp trap for alert 6_2 above will get processed and will update the incident to warning. However Enterprise Manager processing of alert 6_3 will fail resulting in an incident in Enterprise Manager that is listed as a warning that will never clear. Users can also not manually clear the incident via the Enterprise Manager console as the incident is stateful.
