Thread: SGI 2400 stops on boot

  1. SGI 2400 stops on boot

    We have SGI 2400. Ater power cycling the server stops the reboot
    process giving the following message:

    IP27 PROM SGI Version 6.129 built 09:09:13 AM Nov 16, 2002
    Testing/Initializing memory ...............**DONE
    Copying PROM code to memory ...............**DONE

    ****Testing/Initializing all memory ...........**DONE
    Initializing headless node at nasid 21
    .........Discovering local IO ......................**DONE
    *Checking partitioning information .........**DONE

    During successful reboot the next message has been:

    Loading BASEIO prom .......................**DONEBASEIO PROM Monitor
    SGI Version 6.129 built
    64 CPUs on 32 nodes found.
    Installing PROM Device drivers ............
    Base I/O Ethernet set to /dev/ethernet/ef0
    .....and so on.

    I recycled power because I couldn't get multiuser mode. The server
    switched to single user mode and when I tried to reboot, after getting
    multiuser mode again the system immediately switched to single user
    mode.

    What to do? Is it a problem with hardware (BaseIO board)?

    Did you do a proper shutdown from single-user mode first?

    Did you check any log files to see _why_ it wasn't going to
    multiuser mode?

    Quit playing with the power switch and find out what's causing
    the problem.

    Most likely, something is wrong with your root filesystem and
    it needs to be cleaned up. This may require that you boot to
    a miniroot; if you don't know how to do that, get someone who
    does to help you.

    Do you mean that you have no maintenance contract for your multimillion
    dollar system? You must be suicidal.
