Pinned topic SLES 10 PPC on iSeries 520 getting RTAS errors

‏2007-09-28T16:20:13Z |
Hello,

Hope somebody can help.

I am getting tons of kernel log errors in dmesg on all of my linux guest partitions.

RTAS: event: 2800, Type: Platform Error, Severity: 2
RTAS: event: 2801, Type: Platform Error, Severity: 2
RTAS: event: 2802, Type: Platform Error, Severity: 2
RTAS: event: 2803, Type: Platform Error, Severity: 2

same thing on all partitions.

I am not familiar with the syntax of rta_dump nor would i know how to diagnose the event once i grt it to output, simply executing rtas_dump does nothing. I guess i should start here.. And I cannot find any documentation on using the command.

Thanks in Advance,
Tony Axtell

    Tony,

    Did you tried googling the error? If not, here are a couple of related posts:

    http://lkml.org/lkml/2007/3/8/90
    http://lists.openwall.net/linux-ext4/2007/09/13/2

    Are you aware that this is a problem completely in the host side and not in the client side? This forum is for System i Access for Linux, that is, answer questions to the client programs that connect to the System i/AS400, so may be there is another forum more suitable for your question.

    Good Luck!

      yes i googled extensivly,

      i thought the linux rtas deamon was a client side hook to the i/as400, hence why i posted here. Anyways, neither links you provided have anything to do with rtas events, I appreciate your effort anyways.

      The information I am looking for is how to dump the rtas event using the linux rtas tools. And even possibly debug the event to pinpoint the issue on the host lpar side.

      thank you,
