Running scextended or 1280extended Explorer on a Sun Fire system controller will collect information from the System Controller(s). The SC has access to the hardware level error and configuration information. The SC has a small amount of memory to store logs, the logs are lost if the SC is rebooted or power cycled.
A loghost needs to be setup as otherwise some failures are undiagnosable due to critical fault information being unavailable, see Document 1008676.1 'Best Practices' and configuring loghost on Sun Fire[TM] 3800,4800,4900,6800, and E6900 servers.
- Extended explorer has to be run on a system that is able to telnet or ssh into the SC.
- Frequently, the domain and the SCs are not on the same network.
- When this occurs, you might need to use explorer from the domain and scextended explorer from the loghost for troubleshooting purposes.
- Please use the most recent version of Oracle Explorer
- The latest version of Explorer can be downloaded via Oracle Explorer Data Collector - Product Information Center Document 1312847.1
