M-SERIES eXtended System Control Facility (XSCF) Command Line Guide

Hi, sorry if this post is not easy to read, I just copy-paste from my notes:-). Enjoy it..

The Sun SPARC® Enterprise M-series server line is the newest addition to Sun Microsystem’s mid-range (M4000/M5000) and high-end server (M8000/M9000) families. Designed for the enterprise- class datacenter, all members of the server line offer a great deal of configuration flexibility in addition to high performance and reliability.

REPLACE INTERNAL TAPE:

1. unconfigure tape drive from OS
# cfgadm -a
c0::rmt/0 tape connected configured unknown
# cfgadm -c unconfigure c0::rmt/0

Stop the connection to the CD-RW/DVD-RW drive unit on the same controller
as the target tape drive unit

#cfgadm -a
c0::dsk/c0t4d0 CD-ROM connected configured unknown
#cfgadm -c unconfigure c0::dsk/c0t4d0
# cfgadm -a
c0::dsk/c0t4d0 CD-ROM connected unconfigured unknown
c0::rmt/0 tape        connected unconfigured unknown

2. Detach the target tape drive unit from the port
XSVF> cfgdevice -c detach -p <port no.> command
3. Confirm that the target tape drive unit is unconfigured from the domain.
cfgdevice -l
4. Remove the tape drive unit
5. Mount the replacement tape drive unit
6. Attach the tape drive unit to the port
XSCF> cfgdevice -c attach -p <port no.>
7. Confirm that the target tape drive unit is configured from the domain.
XSCF> cfgdevice -l

8. from OS, execute command ‘cfgadm -c configure TAPE_Ap_Id’ to configure tape drive
#cfgadm -c configure c0::rmt/0

9. from OS< execute command ‘cfgadm -c configure DVD_Ap_Id’ to configure DVD drive
#cfgadm -c configure c0::dsk/c0t4d0

10. execute ‘cfgadm -al’ to verify the status of tape drive and DVD drive

NOTE:
PSB (Physical System Board)
XSB (Extended System Board)

A PSB that is logically divided into one part (no division) is called a Uni-XSB, and a PSB that is logically divided into four parts is called a Quad-XSB. On Quad-XSB configuration; ONE XSB CONTAIN TWO PCI SLOT

    Yo, thanks Aziz, v. useful. Just had 4 x M3000 16GB servers delivered that I have to rack out, install, set up single user logins through AD, file share to Win 2008 R2, system logging to a Windows event logging tool etc., etc.

    Hi

    Your notes is very useful and it makes my work very easy. hats of to you.

  3. Avinash

    Hi Aziz,

    your command and help is very helpful in this blog,

    how ever do you have step by step prcedure to configure domain in uni-XSB and Quad XSB mode.

    if you send me or publish that in you blog then it will be very helpful to me and others.

    Regards
    Avinash

    • Hi Avinash,
      The detail procedure are here:

      http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/E19867-01/E21618-01/Domains.html

      IF you understand the concept, then it would be easy ^^

    • Armando

      Hi! i have the instructions for configure a domain in Quad XSB mode and it´s something like this:

      In this case a have an Sun SE M5000 with 8 CPUs SPARC 64 VII+, and i have to create 2 domains, the first will have 6 CPUs and the second with only 2 CPUs, the Sun SE M5000 comes with 2 IO Units and each one Domain will take one of them.

      This are the instructions:

      Set the two SB on Quad-XSB mode
      XSCF> setupfru -x 4 sb 0
      XSCF> setupfru -x 4 sb 1

      Create the LD for Domain 0
      XSCF> setdcl -d 0 -a 0=00-0
      XSCF> setdcl -d 0 -a 1=00-1
      XSCF> setdcl -d 0 -a 2=00-2
      XSCF> setdcl -d 0 -a 3=00-3
      XSCF> setdcl -d 0 -a 4=01-02
      XSCF> setdcl -d 0 -a 5=01-03

      Note: We assigned 01-02 and 01-03 instead of 01-00 and 01-01 because the 01-00 CPU take´s the control of the Second IO Unit, remember that in the Sun SE M5000 only the 00-0 and 01-00 CPUs Can take´s control of both IO Units

      Create the LD for Domain 1
      XSCF> setdcl -d 1 -a 0=01-00
      XSCF> setdcl -d 1 -a 1=01-01

      Assign the LD to the domain 0
      XSCF> addboard -c assign -d 0 00-0 00-1 00-2 00-3 01-02 01-03

      Assign the LD to the domain 1
      XSCF> addboard -c assign -d 1 01-00 01-01

      Review the resources assigned to the domains
      XSCF> showdcl -v -d 0
      XSCF> showdcl -v -d 1

      Power On both Domains
      XSCF> poweron -d 0
      XSCF> poweron -d 1

      Connec to the console of the first domain
      XSCF>console -d 0

      Connec to the console of the first domain
      XSCF>console -d 1

      Once Solaris have booted, just check the resources of each domain with:
      root# prtdiag -v

        Hi, i configure somain similar to this ,

        Set the two SB on Quad-XSB mode
        XSCF> setupfru -x 4 sb 0
        XSCF> setupfru -x 4 sb 1

        Create the LD for Domain 0
        XSCF> setdcl -d 0 -a 0=00-0
        XSCF> setdcl -d 0 -a 1=00-1
        XSCF> setdcl -d 0 -a 2=00-2
        XSCF> setdcl -d 0 -a 3=00-3
        XSCF> setdcl -d 1 -a 1=01-0
        XSCF> setdcl -d 1 -a 2=01-1
        XSCF> setdcl -d 1 -a 3=01-2
        XSCF> setdcl -d 1 -a 3=01-3

        addboard -c assign -d 0 00-00 00-01 00-02 00-03
        addboard -c assign -d 1 01-00 01-01 01-02 01-03

        it only assigns 00-00 to d0 and 01-00 to domain 1 rest of the resources throws the error not install in addboard command and showboard and dcl command shows (sp) unassigned and unmounted.status.

        could please let me know what wrong i am doing which assigning modules to domain.

    hai,

    could you please give me the steps to reboot my m4000 server… we have two domains in this 1- reporting server 2- application server.. how to reboot only my reporting server?

    • Armando Villa

      I Always use the poweroff and poweron command, if you know Which doman it´s the reporting server… if where the domain 0 you could use the next commands

      First:
      XSCF> poweroff -d 0
      later Review the domain status
      XSCF> showdcl -v -d 0
      And later power on again
      XSCF> poweron -d 0

  10. audi

    mas Azis sedikit tanya dunk. untuk penggunaan alom di mesin type T3 gimana ya, saya ada kesulitan dalam mereset Alom nya, khususnya untuk menghilangkan lampu amber…

    terima kasih

    • Halo Audi, untuk seri T-Series, kurang lebih commandnya seperti ini:
      -> set /SYS/ clear_fault_action=true

      contoh:
      -> set /SYS/MB/CMP0/BR0/CH0/D0 clear_fault_action=True

    Hi,

    we have to replace a XsCF on a M5000. how to restore all the domain and the other setting after replacing the XSCF
