25. 11. 2008 Thumper Fileserver t3fs03 problems

Dcache pools on the node were marked as unavailable. A listing of the /data/poolname/data directories on the node hung forever. The var/adm/messages log reported some marvel controller related issues.

poweroff failed to shut down the system. I then tried to do a regular shutdown from the ILOM, which also failed

WARNING: Power off requested from power button or SC, powering down the system!

Shutdown started.    Tue Nov 25 19:49:02 CET 2008

WARNING: Failed to shut down the system!

So, I ordered the ILOM to do an immediate poweroff.

These are some of the ILOM entries:

1755   Tue Nov 25 20:56:46 2008  Audit     Log       minor
       root : Set : object = /SYS/power_state : value = off : success

       KCS Command : Set ACPI Power State : system power state = no change : dev
       ice power state = no change : success
1753   Tue Nov 25 20:49:37 2008  Audit     Log       minor
       root : Set : object = /SYS/power_state : value = soft : success
1752   Tue Nov 25 20:49:37 2008  Audit     Log       minor
       KCS Command : Set ACPI Power State : system power state = no change : dev
       ice power state = no change : success

After the restart of machine, start dcache manually.

root@t3fs03 # /opt/d-cache/bin/dcache start
/pnfs/psi.ch/ not mounted - going to mount it now.
/pnfs/psi.ch       (t3dcachedb01.psi.ch:/pnfsdoors):  640000 blocks       -1 files
Starting dcap-t3fs03Domain  Done (pid=1555)
Starting gridftp-t3fs03Domain  Done (pid=1605)
Starting gsidcap-t3fs03Domain  6 Done (pid=1655)
Starting t3fs03Domain  Done (pid=1709)

After this emergency shutdown I was able to reboot the system normally. The dCache pools also came up fine, even though the running jobs were not able to recover (connections stayed in a hanging state with "no movers found" state marked in the active transfers page).

15. 12. 2008 Again t3fs03 problems - OS patching

Again, the pools on t3fs03 went offline and the system was in a strange state. The system log pointed again to the marvell issue. I decided to immediately patch the system. First I again needed to forcefully shut the system down and reboot.

I put this list of patches into a file patch-list-20081215.lst:

125556-01 SunOS 5.10_x86: patch behavior patch
138270-02 SunOS 5.10_x86: devfs patch
127128-11 SunOS 5.10_x86: kernel patch
137140-06 SunOS 5.10_x86: aggr patch
119255-59 SunOS 5.10_x86: Install and Patch Utilities Patch
137122-03 SunOS 5.10_x86: e1000g driver patch
138110-01 SunOS 5.10_x86: ata driver patch

Then I issued the update commands

smpatch update -x idlist=patch-list-20081215.lst

The patching required a system reboot (or at least an init 0). Strangely enough, many more patches than indicated in the original dependency analysis were installed.

root@t3fs03 # init 0
root@t3fs03 # svc.startd: The system is coming down.  Please wait.
svc.startd: 94 system services are now being stopped.

The reboot worked fine.
