Halo,

My Ultra 60 keep on rebooting to ok prompt itself. Log file in /var/adm/messages showing as below:
The code 245 can be vary, it also showing 247...etc
Any idea?

sendmail[245]: NOQUEUE: SYSERR(root): service "smtp" unknown: Not enough space

Thanks,
BR,
Jack

    I don't think the sendmail errors are responsible for the reboots, more like a symptom. It sais that you don't have enough (disk) space to start sendmail so maybe that same problem also causes the server to reboot. do you get the chance to log on even briefly or does it reboot instantly? Propably a good case for a failsafe boot. Btw the 245/247 is not a code but the process id of sendmail.

    cheers

    Hi bjoern,

    the server didn't reboot instantly but it will reboot itself after sometime of log on.
    Did you mean the (disk) space is not enough, i check the disk space is still available. Probably the swap space of the application?

    Part Tag Flag Cylinders Size Blocks
    0 root wm 435 - 7505 15.89GB (7071/0/0) 33318552
    1 swap wu 0 - 434 1000.84MB (435/0/0) 2049720
    2 backup wm 0 - 7505 16.86GB (7506/0/0) 35368272
    3 unassigned wm 0 0 (0/0/0) 0
    4 unassigned wm 0 0 (0/0/0) 0
    5 unassigned wm 0 0 (0/0/0) 0
    6 unassigned wm 0 0 (0/0/0) 0
    7 unassigned wm 0 0 (0/0/0) 0

    thanks,
    Jack

    that is just the partition table and does not say anything about space usage. Try "df -h"

    there are still many swap space available, only used for 40

    # df -k
    Filesystem kbytes used avail capacity Mounted on
    /dev/dsk/c0t0d0s0 16404230 2330839 13909349 15% /
    /proc 0 0 0 0% /proc
    fd 0 0 0 0% /dev/fd
    swap 2310208 40 2310168 1% /tmp


    How to capture the fault error log during the reboot? The system did not go to OS level but hang at OK prompt after reboot.
    Ultra 60 doesn't have any ALOM console.
    I've been running SunVTS but could not get any result of it.

    Any other suggestion to test out the system?


    Many Thanks.

    If you find the system at the ok prompt, you should be able to type "sync" to get it to force a crash dump, which will appear in /var/crash/<hostname> a short while after the system boots. That crash dump can be used by support to figure out why the system ended up at the ok prompt. You may get enough information to make a search of MOS practical by looking at the kernel message buffer from the time leading up to the crash.

    cd /var/crash/`hostname`
    ls
    echo ::msgbuf | mdb -k 0

    Change 0 to the highest number of unix.* and vmcore.* files you see in that directory.

    Note that this seems to have nothing to do with zones. There are "Solaris 9" and "Solaris 10" forums that may be more appropriate for this question.

    hi Gerdts,

    I try as what you said to generate the crash dump but i can not find any files in the /var/crash/ and no such directory was generated.
    Could it be dumping somewhere other than var/crash? I try to create the var/crash folder manually but still not able to get it

    {2} ok sync
    panic[cpu2]/thread=0x6153a9a0: zero
    syncing file systems... done
    8283 static and sysmap kernel pages
    36 dynamic kernel data pages
    195 kernel-pageable pages
    0 segkmap kernel pages
    0 segvn kernel pages
    0 current user process pages
    8514 total pages (8514 chunks)

    dumping to vp 61062554, offset 1913368
    8514 total pages, dump succeeded
    rebooting...
    Resetting ...

    thanks,

    btw, forget to mention this is SunOS 5.6

    Moderator Action:
    Thread moved from the Zones forum to the Solaris 9 forum.
    That's the closest area on this web site for questions on that ancient 32bit environment.
    That version of the OS reached EOSL in 2006.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solaris_%28operating_system%29#Version_history
    Your Ultra-60 reached EOSL in 2007.

    Solaris 2.6 is so ancient I forget what tricks are needed to enable a place for core files.
    I vaguely recall that they were not enabled by default.

    Here: try this...
    http://www.princeton.edu/~unix/Solaris/troubleshoot/savecore.html
    It was the 4th result from a Google search on "solaris 2.6 core files enable"

    I finally manage to turn on the coredump setup.
    now i have the unix.0 and vmcore.0 files.

    # ls
    bounds unix.0 vmcore.0

    after run # echo ::msgbuf | mdb -k 0 nothing was found, any idea to check on that files?

    *seems my modular debugger are not there...

    Thanks
