HALRT-02005: Flash disk failure

(Doc ID 1113023.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 18, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Exadata Storage Server Software - Version 11.2.1.3.1 to 11.2.3.2.0 [Release 11.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Sun Oracle Exadata Storage Server is equipped with four PCIe cards. Each card has four flash disks (FDOMs) for a total of 16 flash disks. The four PCIe cards are present on PCI slot numbers 1, 2, 4, and 5. The PCe cards are not hot-pluggable such that Exadata Cell must be powered down before replacing the flash disks or cards.


To identify a failed flash disk, use the following command:

In latest 11.2 versions and higher:

CellCLI> LIST PHYSICALDISK WHERE DISKTYPE=flashdisk AND STATUS=failed DETAIL

Here is a sample output on a V2 or X2 cell:

name:                   FLASH_1_0
diskType:               FlashDisk
luns:                   1_0
makeModel:              "Sun Flash Accelerator F20 PCIe Card"
physicalFirmware:       D20Y
physicalInsertTime:     2012-09-27T14:00:55-06:00
physicalSerial:         0950M01RG9
physicalSize:           22.8880615234375G
slotNumber:             "PCI Slot: 1; FDOM: 0"
status:                 failed

An alert will be generated when a flash disk is in predictive failure.

Here is a sample output on a X3 cell:

CellCLI> LIST PHYSICALDISK WHERE DISKTYPE=flashdisk AND STATUS=critical DETAIL

name:                   FLASH_1_0
diskType:               FlashDisk
luns:                   1_0
makeModel:              "Sun Flash Accelerator F40 PCIe Card"
physicalFirmware:       TI35
physicalInsertTime:     2012-10-01T13:45:57-07:00
physicalSerial:         5L0039YS
physicalSize:           93.13225793838501G
slotNumber:             "PCI Slot: 1; FDOM: 0"
status:                 failed

The slotNumber attribute shows the PCI slot and the FDOM number.

 

In earlier versions:

CellCLI> LIST PHYSICALDISK WHERE DISKTYPE=critical AND STATUS=failed DETAIL

Here is a sample output on a V2 or X2 cell:

name:                   FLASH_1_0
diskType:               FlashDisk
luns:                   1_0
makeModel:              "Sun Flash Accelerator F20 PCIe Card"
physicalFirmware:       D20Y
physicalInsertTime:     2012-09-27T14:00:55-06:00
physicalSerial:         0950M01RG9
physicalSize:           22.8880615234375G
slotNumber:             "PCI Slot: 1; FDOM: 0"
status:                 critical

An alert will be generated when a flash disk is in predictive failure.

Here is a sample output on a X3 cell:

CellCLI> LIST PHYSICALDISK WHERE DISKTYPE=flashdisk AND STATUS=critical DETAIL

name:                   FLASH_1_0
diskType:               FlashDisk

physicalSize:           93.13225793838501G
slotNumber:             "PCI Slot: 1; FDOM: 0"
status:                 critical

The slotNumber attribute shows the PCI slot and the FDOM number.
