Today I came into two of my Blades running server 2003 R2 rebooting at around 8:30. I thought what the ? Wait a second who rebooted them and why?
I decided to check the IML log on the OA. That resulted in finding several errors:
As you can see it’s not to detailed… My next option was to check the OS. This box is a SQL 2005 server running on 2003 R2. In the Application log right before the reboot I got an iLO 2 warning Source” hpqilo Event ID: 57 Description: “Failed GET SENSOR READING, Sensor 5.” hunh?!?!?!?
Now I was curious I decided to check HP’s advisory’s there has got to be something wrong with the iLO it’s to coincidental that the ASR happened right after I got the iLO warning.
AHA! that explains it! I’m running iLO firmware 1.81 and Management Controller version 1.11.1
Now that that’s all sorted out time to install these two items:
Updated System Management Controller
Updated iLO Management Controller Firmware
That firmware is not to be confused with the iLO2 firmware located here:
After doing the upgrades suggest by HP I am happy to report I’ve had no ASR reboots.
I really hope this helps someone else out!
