How to Reset a Solid Amber LED on an Oracle Big Data Appliance Disk Drive If There is No Indication of Disk Failure (Doc ID 1541523.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 14, 2019

Applies to:

Big Data Appliance X3-2 Hardware - Version All Versions and later
Linux x86-64


This note documents when a full power down on a server with a solid amber LED (on an otherwise healthy disk) is required and how to perform that step.

In the case where:

1. You determine that one or more solid amber LED(s) on Oracle Big Data Appliance (BDA) disk drive(s) do not indicate a disk failure via the procedures described in:
How to Determine if a Flashing Amber LED on an Oracle Big Data Appliance Disk Drive Does Not Indicate Disk Failure (Doc ID 1537798.1)

Note that you follow the same steps to determine if a disk is healthy for a solid amber LED as is described for a flashing LED


2. A LED reset does not reset the service LED(s)

Then the next step is to perform a full power down on any server with one or more solid amber LEDs.   This step allows for a complete cold boot which fully resets components.
