Clear Exadata Component Messages after Maintenance

What can you do if you’ve completed maintenance in a component (a memory component, as per the example below) but keep receiving failure messages?

First, try clearing all the error messages after completing the maintenance. Now, check if the threshold is reached again. If so, you may need to replace it.

How can you do it? Easy: use the ILOM (Integrated Lights Out Manager) interface from the ssh command line.

ssh root@pythian01-ilom
-> show /SYS/MB/P0/D3
fault_state = Faulted
-> set /SYS/MB/P0/D3 clear_fault_action=true
Are you sure you want to clear /SYS/MB/P0/D3 (y/n)? y
-> show /SYS/MB/P0/D3
type = DIMM
ipmi_name = MB/P0/D3
fru_name = 16384MB DDR4 SDRAM DIMM
fru_manufacturer = Samsung
fru_part_number = %
fru_rev_level = 01
fru_serial_number = %
   fault_state = OK
clear_fault_action = (none)

I hope this helps if you’re facing this issue.
