Note: The default fixed disk is the drive configured as SCSI device ID=6, determined by the drive address switches or jumpers. Use "set configuration/view configuration" to verify the default drive SCSI ID.
Most I999xxxx errors can be corrected without hardware replacement. The following steps will correct most I999xxxx errors:
The following error codes and corresponding recommended actions, may be encountered by customers and/or servicers.
The errors listed below may be corrected by restoring the system partition: Refer to step 3 above.
|No valid disk IML record was found on the fixed disk.
|Disk IML record load (read) error.
|Disk IML record incompatible with planar.
|Disk IML record incompatible with processor card.
|Disk IML not attempted.
|Disk stage ii image load (read) error.
|Disk stage ii checksum (read) error.
The errors listed below can be corrected by restarting the system using a good system reference diskette:
|Invalid diskette IML record
|Diskette IML record load (read) error
|Diskette IML record incompatible with planar.
|Diskette IML record incompatible with processor card.
|Diskette stage 2 image load (read) error.
|Diskette stage 2 image checksum error.
|Diskette IML recovery prevented (valid password and CE override jumper not set). action: Power-down, Toggle CE override on system planar (J10 on the 8590), (J16 on the 8595), Power-up.
|No bootable device. Action: restart using a good bootable operating system diskette.
|Invalid disk boot record. Action: restart using a good bootable operating system diskette (i.e., dos); install operating system on fixed disk.
|System partition boot failure. Action: using system backup reference diskette, restore system partition.
|No bootable device with ASCII console. Action: restart the system using bootable operating system diskette.
The following errors normally require processor FRU replacement:
|Missing ROM IBM copyright notice
|Non-IBM IML routine
|IML overlay logistics error
|IML overlay checksum error
|IML overlay id error
