Errors are generated and reported to the console or the /var/adm/messages file during the boot sequence.
These errors may be caused by missing patches, down-level firmware or missing etc/system file settings. If applicable:
The Sun Fire[TM] T1000 may report SUNW-MSG-ID errors related to: SUNOS-8000-1L
The Sun Fire[TM] T2000 may report SUNW-MSG-ID errors related to: SUN4-8000-ER, SUN4-8000-0Y, SUN4-8000-75, SUN4-8000-D4, or the PCI-Express subsystem
Example of what may be seen on the console or in /var/adm/messages:
SUNW-MSG-ID: SUN4-8000-0Y, TYPE: Fault, VER: 1, SEVERITY: Critical EVENT-TIME: Fri Jan 27 22:17:36 GMT 2006 PLATFORM: SUNW,Sun-Fire-T200, CSN: -, HOSTNAME: x SOURCE: eft, REV: 1.13 EVENT-ID: d79b51d1-aca0-c786-aa50-c8f35ea0fba3 DESC: A problem was detected in the PCI-Express subsystem. Refer to http://sun.com/msg/SUN4-8000-0Y for more information.
To check the FMA logs for these messages use the command:
# fmdump -v
TIME UUID SUNW-MSG-ID Apr 16 13:54:13 d79b51d1-aca0-c786-aa50-c8f35ea0fba3 SUN4-8000-0Y
If the system shows that the fltlog is empty, the following will be displayed.
# fmdump -v TIME UUID SUNW-MSG-ID fmdump: /var/fm/fmd/fltlog is empty
The system may have the required patches, firmware and /etc/system entries installed and applied but still will need to have the previous faults (if any) cleared.
