Onyx2 trouble

Unread postby MrBill » Thu Feb 09, 2017 6:59 am

Bought an onyx 2. Seems to hang during startup. If i leave it alone for a long time (over 10 minutes) it gets to the main prom menu. It has not gotten that far the last couple times. What is the procedure for connecting a serial terminal? I want to see if there is any info i am missing.

figured it out. Not sure what that round diagnostic port on the front is used for, but i have a vt100 connected and it is working.

Could be the AUX port, I had the very same issue when I tried to power up my o200 (the one smashed up in the back of the car) for the first time.

A little bit of progress. I have run into some trouble getting an a fresh install on the machine, but i decided to did through the boxes and found the original drives for the machine, which contained a working install of irix which i was able to boot into. However, something is not quite right.

Everything is ... like, covered in lines. but only certain windows. some parts are completely clear.

I... do not know what is going on, never seen such a thing till now.

It looks like a video problem. Pull the power, make sure it's discharged and then reseat the video and node boards.

Since it seems to run ok on the compute side, before you do anything else my suggestion would be to make a few passes with the diagnostic tool for InfiniteReality graphics, irsaudit. If you do pull boards, mark 'em so you know which slot each one came in (if you get them out of order/position POD will bitch at you until you correct the issue or erase it's memory).

irsaudit won't run while while graphics are loaded/running, so my preference is to boot via serial terminal.....though if you prefer you boot the system into graphics mode and stop graphics for the test, then restart graphics when the tests are done.

I typically launch irsaudit with the following command:

Code: Select all

/usr/diags/IR/bin/irsaudit REPEAT=5

I use the "REPEAT=5" switch to ensure the system gets fully warmed up and to ensure that reports of errors (or the lack there of) remain consistant. There's a nekowiki @ http://www.nekochan.net/wiki/InfiniteRe ... h_irsaudit

If you go the serial terminal route, if possible use one that can display color graphics. irsaudit will color code the test results for you, which makes reading a couple hundred lines of text a much easier job. Use a null modem cable, set the serial terminal to 9600/8/N/1 and connect it to the first serial port on the IO6G (tty1).

The port is on the MSC (module/system controller), like the L1 controllers used in later generation hardware it provides some (lesser) environmental monitoring and other basic control functions. If the key is in the right position, there are a number of queries/commands the MSC will respond to; there are a few scattered through this thread.

BTW, your recent additions are some mighty fine examples of SGI hardware, including a Crimson (which is probably defined in the dictionary as the the SGI collector's Holy Grail). FWIW, since it appears to have two router boards in the photos, I think your skinless system is an O2K/Onyx2 compute module. If all else fails I'm pretty sure I still have a rack-style fascia panel / skin for an O2k (blue rather than purple).

Quite helpful information, thanks. How would i go about starting the system without graphics. I already have a serial terminal connected?

Crimson as the holy grail is close to my line of thought. I was amazed to get the first crimson a while back, kinda amazed i was able to find another. My first crimson had an issue with the IO3 board, i was unable to locate just the board, so i managed to get another whole machine. The other one still kinda works, although in a kind of crippled state.

I was under the impression that these onyx2 machines linked together in some way with numalink cables or something. The skinless one appears to have those connectors, the deskside does not. I know nothing about them yet really, still need to run hinv and get the details.

I have a skin set for the rackmount machine, what i appear to be missing is the bottom plastic with the casters. Without being propped up on something, it is sitting flush with the vents, no air getting through.

You're welcome.

Boot the system with only the serial terminal connected (no monitor, kb or m). Login as root, and run /usr/gfx/gfxinfo. If it indicated no graphics are loaded start the irsaudit tests. If graphics show to be loaded, run /usr/gfx/stopgfx , then run the tests. Depending on the type and number of graphics boards you have you're potentially looking at an output of several hundred lines of text, so set your serial terminal up with a fairly large scroll back buffer so you can save the entire results. BTW, even if you do happen to start irsaudit with graphics are loaded, you won't do any physical harm; the test will nag you to stop gfx and not go any farther.

If the tests don't report any major errors, I'd suggest pulling the old boot drive and put it aside for later content examination, and do a clean install on to a different drive. If you're lucky what you saw on the screen might just be bit rot.

Because of the space taken on the midplane by the IR board set slots, an Onyx2 Deskside doesn't have the necessary hardware to allow full NUMAlink connections, so a compute module / Onyx2 DS hook-up probably isn't gonna happen.

Not sure that reseating boards will fix the problem.
Would this be a hardware failure? What board is at fault?
I do have some spare boards, hopefully i have one that works.

Your Display generator (the board with the monitor connections) is the one at fault here. You will need to replace it as it looks like the memory chips in it are shot. They're very static sensitive.

Ok yeah, i have heard they are very static sensitive, I will handle with care and use a grounding strap.

Are the memory chips standard and can be sourced somewhere online or are they proprietary as hell, specific to this machine and not a chance of replacing them?

'irsaudit' has marked your DG board as faulty. So just pull it and replace it with one of your spares:

Code: Select all

030-1055-001 onyx display generator
013-1972-002 dg5-2 w/gvo option

Either should work, the latter has some extra BNCs if ever you want to attach an SDI monitor and do funky graphics-to-video things.

The remarks about replacing RAM chips that 'irsaudit' spews out are for SGI engineers. It doesn't even say where on the board to replace anything so it's not very useful for an end user.

You've got an empty slot for an extra RM9, so once you've got something that passes irsaudit you might as well load one of the three spare

Code: Select all

013-2464-001 raster manager

and enjoy the extra raster/texture memory.

That doesn't seem to be the part number for an Onyx Everest/Powerpath or Origin XIO option board, but the steel actuator mechanism of an Origin/Onyx option, holding the board in place.
A picture would help in identifying the unknown board(s).
