Pinned topic BladeCenter S does not define blade HS22 after update firmware AMM

‏2014-02-13T06:10:23Z |

Have chassis BladeCenter S (8886TG) and 6 blades HS22(7870).

After firmware update AMM to 3.66b, ceased determined two blades.

Event Log AMM:

 

0x00216000 Problem communicating with BSMP.

 

 

0x0e008004 Blade 4 is not responding on the management bus

 

System Status Summary:

I no longer have any control over the blade itself. I cant power on, power off, reboot, use remote console or update the firmware of the blade in question.

Moved the blade into the other slots - the error persits. Performed Restart Blade System Mgt Processor - the error persits.

Currently released new firmware 3.66ts AM, but I'm afraid to use it ....

Please suggest us a solution for this...

P.S.: sorry for the poor knowledge of English, I used an online translator (

    Try going to 66C which just dropped.  This is a very common occurrence where the blade shows no errors, but then the AMM rediscovers it or you try to boot it from the AMM and you get the BSMP errors.  Normally, the AMM firmware didn't cause it and it was broken before, but the rediscovery of the chassis noticed the service processor failure.  If flashing to 66C does not resolve, then you will have to replace the motherboard on the blade to restore the service processor functionality.  

    We have 3500 blades and we see this quite frequently.  No error, then you try to interact with the blade or the AMM rediscovers it and it finds that the service processor is toast.

    Thanks for the answer Josh. Today try flashing to 66C. I wonder what could break in blades. To firmware AMM they were productive / production servers without problems. Make a requests in ibm and forward them to the final answer. Preliminary answer: replace the motherboard on the blade.

    Motherboard replaced, problem solved.
