Checking the status of a server unit

  1. Navigate to Home Status & Monitoring Server Status.

    • For a stand-alone server that is not part of a cluster, the Server Status page is displayed.

      Field/Item Description
      Cluster Node Name The server/node name (label). Click rename and enter a new name, to change the server name.
      Cluster Node ID The ID assigned to the node.
      Status Indicates the node status:
      • Online: Node has completed booting.
      • Unknown: Node has not yet booted.
      • Up: Node is booting (displayed only while the node is booting).
      • Not up: node is shutting down (displayed only while the node is shutting down).
      • Dead: Node has failed to go online after booting
      Network and Storage
      File Systems Overall indicator of file system status:
      • OK. All file systems up and operational.
      • Failed. One or more file systems has failed.

      Click the status link to display the File Systems page, which lists all the file systems assigned to the EVS in that cluster node.

      Ethernet Aggregations Overall status of Ethernet aggregations in the server/node:
      • OK. All aggregated ports are up and linked.
      • Degraded. One or more ports in an aggregation has failed.
      • Failed. All ports in an aggregation have failed.

      Click the status link to display the Link Aggregation page, which lists all aggregations (trunks) in the server/node.

      Management Network Overall status of the management network:
      • OK. Links are up and heartbeats are being received.
      • Failed. No heartbeats are being received, and the links may be up or down.

      Click the status link to display the Ethernet Statistics page, which lists information about the management port and the aggregated Ethernet ports in the server/node.

      Fibre Channel Connections An overall status indicator for the Fibre Channel ports in the server/node:
      • OK. All ports up and operational.
      • Degraded. Some ports up and operational, but one or more has failed.
      • Failed. All ports have failed.

      Click the status link to display the Fibre Channel Statistics Per Port page, which lists all Fibre Channel ports in use in the server/node.

      Chassis
      Power Supply Status A status indicator for the power supply units (PSUs):
      • OK. Both PSUs are installed and operating normally.
      • Not Fitted. One PSU not responding to queries, which may mean that has been removed from the chassis, or is not properly installed in the chassis.
      • Fault or Switched Off. One PSU not responding to queries, and it has failed, been switched off, or is not plugged in to mains power.
      • Unknown. One PSU not responding to queries, and the exact cause cannot be determined.
      Temperature Status indicator for temperature of the server/node chassis:
      • OK. Within the normal operating range.
      • Degraded. Above normal, but not yet critical.
      • Failed. Critical.

      When available, the temperature in the chassis also is displayed. The displayed temperature is the highest reported temperature of any of the boards in the chassis.

      Power Supply Battery Status Status of the power supply battery.

      When the indicator is green:

      • OK. Capacity and voltage within the normal operating range.
      • Initialising. PSU battery is initializing after initial installation.
      • Normal Charging. PSU battery is being charged.
      • Cell-Testing. PSU battery is being tested.

      When the indicator is amber:

      • Discharged. Capacity and/or voltage below normal. This status should be considered a warning; if it continues, the PSU battery should be replaced.
      • Low. Capacity or voltage below normal operating level. This status should be considered a warning; if it continues, the PSU battery should be replaced.
      • Not Responding. PSU battery is not responding to queries.

      When the indicator is red:

      • Fault. PSU battery is not holding a charge, has the wrong voltage, or some other fault, and the PSU battery should be replaced.
      • Not Fitted. PSU battery is not detected. Contact your technical support representative for more information.
      • Failed. Capacity and voltage consistently below acceptable minimum, or the PSU battery is not charging, or is not responding to queries. This status indicates a failure; the PSU battery should be replaced.
      • Very Low. Capacity and voltage below acceptable minimum. If this status continues for more than a few hours, it indicates a failure; the PSU battery should be replaced.

      When available, the level of the battery charge also is displayed.

      Fan Speed Status of fans in the server/node chassis:
      • OK. All fans operating normally.
      • Degraded. One or more fans spinning below normal range.
      • Failed. At least one fan has stopped completely, or is not reporting status.

      When available, the chassis fan speed also is displayed. The displayed fan speed is the slowest reported speed of any of the three fans. An error message might be displayed, even if it does not correspond with the slowest fan.

      System Uptime Duration since last reboot of the server/node.
      EVS
      EVS Displays the names (labels) of EVSs assigned to the node, and displays a status indicator for each EVS:
      • Green. Online and operational.
      • Amber. Offline, but listed here because the server/node is hosting the administrative EVS.
      • Red. Failed.

      Click the EVS name to display the EVS Details page for that EVS.

    • For a cluster node, the Cluster Configuration page is displayed.
