by on Dec.18, 2008, under Hacker

Procedure for Reseting IBM xSeries 445 RSA II Card:

  • Connect loopback cable from RSAII to ETH1 on server. (RSA port is directly to the left of ETH1)
  • Bring up ETH1:
    eth1 inet addr: Bcast: Mask:
  • telnet
  • username: USERID password: PASSW0RD (0 = zero, not letter)
  • enter “resetsp” at command prompt to reset controller
  • controller will disconnect session and reset

Known problem with the x445 and the (42B)1.15 BIOS. Supposed to be fixed in the (45A) 1.17 BIOS update. Server will lockup every 76 days without updated BIOS, or controller reset.
