IVM 3 digit LED
« on: July 01, 2009, 11:55:03 AM »
Hey everyone,

I have a running VIOS with IVM and have creates some LPARs in it. First one should be a new NIM server, and second one should be NIM client. NIM server seems to be running, all checks are ok, so I created the NIM client. It starts up, counts the tftp packets, displays the AIX welcome screen and just waits there. Nothing more... After looking into the NIM redbook I learned that NIM should set a 3 digit LED code, to determine where the problem lies. Problem is, I can't find the 3 digit LED code. It's running on a JS22 blade on a bladecenter H.
I had a similar issue once on another blade, but without the whole VIOS/IVM/LPAR setup, just a blade installation. In that case, the "blade service data" provides the 3 digit LED code, in this case however, no luck there.

Does anyone know how to solve this?

Ok, my fault, the LED code is viewable in IVM as the Reference Code. In my case it displays only "Starting Kernel", but I tried to install the LPAR with another NIM server and the codes appears... so it seems my freshly installed NIM needs a little work...
