    Alert About battery dumped using showfaults is not present in syslog

    918485
      Hello,

      My problem is the following: when I am connected on sc and with showfaults command I can see the warning concerning the battery threshold, but this warning do not appear in syslog under /var/log/. And also when using prtdiag -v command nothing is dumped about voltage, fan or temperature.

      In fact I use a service to grep syslog and create an alarm file which is the first entry point to detect any problem on system.

      I need to know how to configure such warning to be dumped in syslog?

          I don't think such messages ever go to syslog. If they are anywhere, they'll be reported to your /var/adm/messages file(s). You might be able to configure the system to add them to syslog but others will need to give guidance on doing that.
          ... when using prtdiag -v command nothing is dumped about voltage, fan or temperature.
          When prtdiag is run as only a user of the system, it commonly yields a simplified and/or truncated output. Run it with the same verbose `-v` command switch as root user and observe whether there are any differences.

          In the meantime, just go ahead and schedule a maintenance window where you can shut the system down and replace the CR2032 coin cell battery that is on the System Controller ( SC/BAT ) . "Exceeded low voltage" means the battery is at or near zero volts and needs to be replaced.

          Here's a direct link to the T2000 Service Manual in PDF format:

            All, the CR2032 does not fit in the T000 System Controller riser board. You'll need the CR1225 or BR1225.
