I've seen those errors when I have had a bad memory chip on the hardware. Best to send an explorer off to Sun.
That's really what I'm thinking it might be. I completely powered it off / removed power and opened it up and reseated all memory cards. When my console machine logs back in, I'm going to power it back up and see what happens.
I had another M4000 here so I removed the entire ram bank from this M4000 and swapped it with the other one and now I'm no longer seeing the memory address not aligned errors, however; it seems to just reset / reboot.
I can enter single user mode if at the >boot cdrom --s and mount the hard drive and running fsck on /dev/dsk/c0t0d0s0 returns no errors. If I run a reboot though, it goes back to
bootOs-io hostname unknown
the file system /dev/rdsk/c0t0d0s0 is being checked
syncing file systems... done
And then back to the post.
Is this hardware or is this something wrong config wise? I'm at a total loss here and I need to get the system back up ASAP.
Thanks for all the help.
I need to get the system back up ASAP.Your time constraints aren't anyone's concern here in these user-to-user forums.
This isn't Techsupport. No one is being paid to respond with suggestions.
Contact Oracle support, use your service contract credentials and privileges, and log a Support Request. For a computer system that is that expensive to purchase, you have a service contract.
It wasn't meant as a directive, it was I'm trying to find information. I understand this isn't technical support and I apologize about that comment. People here have been more than helpful with problems and issues and if it offended, again, I do apologize.
It just that it has been more than four days since you initially posted the inquiry to the forum. In all but the most remote locations on this World of ours, a SR logged with TechSupport could have had a field service engineer into your data center by now.
It's a special case here that I can't go into details of why a service person can not come to where this machine is located, but that's neither here nor there.
As an aside, I was able to achieve single usermode with the cdrom drive and reading on other forums, tried doing a boot -f "failsafe" and it rebooted correctly after post. Also, not having the hostname was a problem, which I can't seem to understand since it had, static defined IP addresses. Now, I'm rebooting again, and seeing if it will boot correctly this time without the restart / reboot errors that I was seeing since it now isn't giving me the Hostname undefined message.
Now, I'm getting other errors, but it is rebooting! So I'm happy, I think I can figure out everything else on my own.
Best of luck to you.
