System x3850 X6 - Type 6241 Boot Delay

2019-02-18, 6:22 AM

Hello,

 

We have 2 System X3850 X6 server onsite. One of them has booting delay issue and the other boots faster even they have save configuration.  I would like to ask why the booting time for System x3850 X6 server takes time (10 - 15 minutes). It initialize memory 3 times and takes 5minutes each initialization as if the server hangs. This happens during restart or shutdown. We have tried to update the firmware but same issue. Is there a way to make the server boot fast the same as other System X3850 X6 server?

 

Thank you very much.

Hi Sir,

 

According to your description,  the booting time for System x3850 X6 server initialize memory 3 times and takes 5minutes each initialization to cause booting delay issue. I suggest to switch memory from working System X3850 X6 server to issue server. Then check if the problem is still occurring or not.

Hello Danny,

 

Are you saying that this delay might be from the memory?

 

We will try the tasks on the weekend for the shutdown schedule then will update later.

 

Thank you very much.

Hi Hongwei,

The 2 servers has different fw level as attach. The other server that has older version of fw boots faster than the other server with newer fw version. I attach the logs for both servers for further info.

Thanks.
