IMM messages

When a hardware event is detected by the IMM on the upper or lower compute node of a Flex System x222 Compute Node, the IMM logs that event in the system-event log in the affected compute node. In addition, the IMM sends that event to the CMM and to the Flex System Manager management software (if installed).

Important: In event messages that reference a specific Flex System x222 compute node, upper or lower, 'node 1' indicates the lower compute node and 'node 2' indicates the upper compute node.
For each event code, the following fields are displayed:
Event identifier
A hexadecimal identifier that uniquely identifies an event or class of events. In this documentation, the event identifiers are prefixed with 0x and followed by eight characters.
Event description
The logged message string that appears for an event. When the event string is displayed in the system-event log, information such as a specific component is displayed. In this documentation, that additional information appears as variables, such as [arg1] or [arg2].
Additional information to explain why the event occurred.
An indication of the level of concern for the condition. In the system-event log, the severity is abbreviated to the first character. The following severities can be displayed:
  • Info: The event was recorded for audit purposes. This is usually a user action or a change of states that is normal behavior.
  • Warning: The event is not as severe as an error, but if possible, the condition should be corrected before it becomes an error. It might also be a condition that requires additional monitoring or maintenance.
  • Error: The event is a failure or critical condition that impairs service or an expected function.
Alert Category
Similar events are grouped in categories. The alert category is in the following format:

severity - device component

severity is one of the following severity levels:
  • Critical: A key component in the server is no longer functioning.
  • Warning: The event might progress to a critical level.
  • System: The event is the result of a system error or a configuration change.

device component is the specific device in the compute node that caused the event to be generated.

Whether user action is required to correct the problem.
CIM Information
The prefix of the message ID and the sequence number that is used by the CIM message registry.
The SNMP trap ID that is found in the SNMP alert management information base (MIB).
Automatically notify Support
If this field is set to Yes and you have enabled Electronic Service Agent (ESA) on Flex System Manager management software (if installed), Support will be notified automatically if the event is generated.

If Flex System Manager management software is not installed, you can enable Support from the CMM web interface.

While you wait for Support to call, you can perform the recommended actions for the event.

User response
The actions that you should perform to solve the event.
Perform the steps listed in this section in the order shown until the problem is solved. After you perform all of the actions that are described in this field, if you cannot solve the problem, contact Support.
Note: This list includes error codes and messages that might not apply to this machine type and model.
