HALRT-02006: Flash disk predictive failure (Doc ID 1113033.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 15, 2012

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 4 PCIe cards are present on PCI slot numbers 1, 2, 4, and 5. The PCIe cards are not hot-pluggable such that Exadata Cell must be powered down before replacing the flash disks or cards.

You may need to replace a flash disk because the flash disk is in predictive failure status.

To identify a predictive failure flash disk, use the following command:


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


CellCLI> LIST PHYSICALDISK WHERE DISKTYPE=flashdisk AND STATUS='warning - predictive failure' detail

name:                   FLASH_2_0
diskType:               FlashDisk
luns:                   2_0
makeModel:              "Sun Flash Accelerator F20 PCIe Card"
physicalFirmware:       D20Y
physicalInsertTime:     2012-09-27T14:00:55-06:00
physicalSerial:         0950M01RL9
physicalSize:           22.8880615234375G
slotNumber:             "PCI Slot: 2; FDOM: 0"
status:                 warning - predictive failure

 

Here is a sample output on a X3 cell:

 

CellCLI> LIST PHYSICALDISK WHERE DISKTYPE=flashdisk AND STATUS='warning - predictive failure' detail
name:                   FLASH_2_0
diskType:               FlashDisk
luns:                   2_0
makeModel:              "Sun Flash Accelerator F40 PCIe Card"
physicalFirmware:       TI35
physicalInsertTime:     2012-10-01T13:45:57-07:00
physicalSerial:         5L0037LX
physicalSize:           93.13225793838501G
slotNumber:             "PCI Slot: 2; FDOM: 0"
status:                 warning - predictive failure


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