Why fc60controller reset.ksh is not longer delivered
The fc60controller_reset.ksh file is a script used to reset the fc60 controller created based on SR 8606414693 (Bug report). It was originally reported as a problem on the fc60mon monitor, but HP laboratories finally determined there was a problem with the hardware itself, specifically on the controller reset process.
The file /etc/opt/resmon/lbin/fc60controller_reset.ksh has been removed from OnlineDiag software bundle. It is not available on version B.11.11.20.03 (A.59.00) for HP-UX 11.11 anymore and likely neither on previous versions down to A.04.20.11 (A.57.00).
Originally delivered to fix the following issues on fc60 monitors, patch name PHSS_32492 (December 2004) superseded by PHSS_33673:
1. DTS JAGaf52955 SR 8606392874
2. DTS JAGaf52161 SR 8606392029
3. DTS JAGaf54126 SR 8606394086
4. DTS JAGaf35652 SR 8606375349
The script was updated on patch PHSS_34835 (September 2005)
1. DTS JAGaf74551 SR 8606414693
There were some workarounds available to handle the issue. Some of them may still be neccesary depending on the customer configuration:
It is recommended that the controllers be reset at least 10 days prior to the actual time (828.5 days) when VxAbsTicks timer will wrap around.
There are several ways to accomplish the reset of the controllers. The best and preferred method is to power cycle the FC60 Controller once every two years. The second method and next best option is to press the reset buttons on each of the FC60 controller boards installed in the FC60 controller once every two years. The last method and least preferred is only for HP-UX systems and consists of running a script that resets FC60 array controllers and modified ‘fc60mon’ monitor code to generate controller reset event (# 38) as per user requirement through configuration file specifically created for this event.
Alternate Methods for HP-UX Systems
Reset of the controllers using a script process
This option is ONLY support on HP-UX systems and is also not the preferred method.
This last and least preferred method is only for HP-UX systems. Use of this method involves running a script that resets FC60 array controllers and modified fc60mon monitor code to generate controller reset event (# 38) as per user requirement through configuration file specifically created for this event.
