Symptoms

In the initial case, the Service Processor firmware was upgraded from v8.5.0a to 8.5.1b using Patch #151296-02. When the Service Processor came back up after reset  the Host fails to boot. When downgrading the System Firmware back to v8.5.0a via the web interface, the problem persists. At this time the host system will not start. This can be solved at first power cycling the machine, but this will not provide a definite solution to the problem.

The T5 systems have hit this problem for another reason that may be due to firmware.
