The "machine check error code" is at offset 10 (hex) from the start of the frame which was 00108060 in this case. SYMPTOM:Environmental entries logged in error logs. SYSTEM job terminated at 24-SEP-2004 09:53:37.61Tells me something was VERY WRONG indeed.... I tried a 3000 600, and T MEM LLSC seems to work fine. look at this web-site
I found that T MEM LLSC always fails on this machine, though not always in the same way, and at a different address each time. I conclude that the model 300 does not correctly implement whatever LLSC is trying to check. So maybe Quote:>>> examine -b 00108070 will give the error code. System configuration did fulfill the power redundancy rules.Answer/Solution FIX:Requested user to check their power environment.
The MCHK ID in the middle of the memory test looks weird. Despite what the manual says, and what I posted previously, T MEM BCTP and T MEM ECC don't appear to exist on the model 300. and always ? DEC 3000/300 video specs? 11.
Then run DECevent to translate CLUE$ERRLOG.SYS and - assuming there is an errlog entry for the underlying hardware problem - post the translated errlog file as an attachment (or mail it User checked and corrected this problem and no further power related problem were logged since then. © Copyright 2015 Hewlett-Packard Development Company, L.P. I have the 3000 300 owner's guide, which is quite detailed. The other side of both SIMMs forms another bank.

I don't know where the various components are located. According to the DECevent V3.4 Release Notes, the 600au is not listed, but AlphaStation 600 and AlphaStation 533au2 are listed, so that's as near as you can get.You can download DECevent
The machine passes the power-up tests fine. Provide feedback Please rate the information on this page to help us improve our content. There should be commands like MEMTEST and MEM_EXER (or similar).It may be preferable to run tests at the lowest possible level, if hardware problems are to be troubleshooted.Volker. 0 Kudos Willem navigate here The rejuvenation isn't complete yet.)

The PALcode handles the exception. After the server was rebooted, the user observed errors in the system errlog indicating a "CPU Double Error Halt" had occured. T-ERR-MEM _ FAILED status = 20 test Init addr - 00200044 ?? 800 MEM 0x0020 PAL code is V5.56 64 mb MEM So if the memory is faulty, can
Or buy another 3000 300 and use the first for spare parts. But why that crashed the CPU reemains a mistory to me, since these were correctable.Hope you can tell more. Its been interesting. If you mix 16 and 64 MB kits, you have to put the big ones in first. - Hide quoted text -- Show quoted text -> -- > Robert Deininger

Maybe it really is an OS problem, not a memory/cache problem. Here are the results: Christof, I found an obscure note in the firmware update instructions.

In this case, it's very unlikely that you find useful machine check information, as the PALcode typically does not create a MCHK LOGOUT FRAME.You could try and locate the MCHK LOGOUT
