Powering off individual domains

  1. Connect to the correct domain

    1. Login to ssp as ssp and enter ${domain_name} at the Please enter SUNW_HOSTNAME: prompt.
    2. If already logged into the ssp, enter domain_switch ${domain_name} in a command window.
  2. ID proper domain boards by executing domain_status and noting the board numbers under the heading SYSBDS:

    ${SSP}:${Domain}% domain_status
    DOMAIN          TYPE                     PLATFORM       OS     SYSBDS
    domain1         Ultra-Enterprise-10000   Plat_name      2.6    4 5
    domain2         Ultra-Enterprise-10000   Plat_name      2.6    0 1
    domain3         Ultra-Enterprise-10000   Plat_name      2.6    3
    domain4         Ultra-Enterprise-10000   Plat_name      2.6    6 8
    domain5         Ultra-Enterprise-10000   Plat_name      2.6    9 10
    
  3. Bring the domain down.

    1. Open another command window, issue domain_switch if necessary.
    2. Execute netcon to start up the domain console.
    3. Log in as root.
    4. Execute sync;sync;sync;init 0
    5. Once the system is at the OK prompt, continue.
  4. In the first command window, enter power -off -sb ${brd_numbers[*]}. Board numbers are listed together with space separators.

Powering off the entire E10K

  1. Bring down all E10K domains:

    1. Open a command window.
    2. Issue domain_switch ${domain_name} to connect to the correct domain.
    3. Issue netcon to open the domain console.
    4. Log in as root.
    5. Execute sync;sync;sync;init 0
    6. Once the domain is at the OK prompt, exit the netconsole by issuing ~. (Press/hold tilde while pressing period).
    7. Iterate through the above until all domains are down.
  2. Open a command window on shamash and enter power -B -off -all. When the command completes, you will hear the power switches changing position in the E10K cabinet.

  3. Power off the SSP:

    su - root
    sync;sync;sync;init 0
    

    When the OK prompt appears, turn off the power to the ssp.

Powering on individual domains

  1. Open two command windows; issue domain_switch ${domain_name} as necessary.

  2. In one of the windows, ID the system boards by issuing domain_status and noting the board numbers under the heading SYSBDS:

    ${SSP}:${Domain}% domain_status
    DOMAIN          TYPE                     PLATFORM       OS     SYSBDS
    domain1         Ultra-Enterprise-10000   Plat_name      2.6    4 5
    domain2         Ultra-Enterprise-10000   Plat_name      2.6    0 1
    domain3         Ultra-Enterprise-10000   Plat_name      2.6    3
    domain4         Ultra-Enterprise-10000   Plat_name      2.6    6 8
    domain5         Ultra-Enterprise-10000   Plat_name      2.6    9 10
    
  3. Issue power -on -sb ${board_numbers[*]}. Board numbers are listed together with space separators.

  4. Issue bringup -A off -l7. NOTE: Space between the ‘-A’ and ‘off’ and lower case L in the ‘-l7’.

  5. In the other window, issue netcon. Wait for the OK prompt to appear, then execute boot.

  6. Wait for the system to come up completely, then exit the netconsole by issuing ~. (Press/hold tilde while pressing period).

Powering on the entire E10K

  1. Power on the SSP; at the OK prompt, type boot
  2. Flip the power switches on the E10K.
  3. Log in as ssp
    1. Enter ${Plat_name} at the Please enter SUNW_HOSTNAME: prompt.
    2. Open a command window; execute power -on -all
    3. Open another command windows. foreach domain do:
      1. In one window, execute domain_switch ${domain_name}
      2. Execute bringup -A off -l7 NOTE: Space between the ‘-A’ and ‘off’ and lower case L in the ‘-l7’.
      3. In the other command window, execute domain_switch ${domain_name} followed by netcon
      4. When the OK prompt appears, execute boot

NOTES: ONLY BRING UP ONE SYSTEM AT A TIME Otherwise, the boot process will take longer than it already does!
