The Question is:
I have an alpha 800 running VMS 7.2-1
every other morning i come in to find it has shutdown and has the following
message on screen....
Halted CPU 0
Halt code = 7
Machine check while PAL mode
I have installed the lates Firmware 5.7
Do you have any idea what this may be?
Nothing in the Operator log ??
I have been unable to find anything in WIS.
The Answer is :
Please see topics (1038), (2829), (3562), (4582), and (6129).
If you set the the console environment variable:
SET AUTO_ACTION RESTART
The next incident of this should trigger a MCHECKPAL system
crash (bugcheck), followed by an automatic reboot.
And as stated in the topics listed above, a machine check error
is most likely a result of a hardware problem. Please contact
your hardware support organization.
Your hardware support organization may (will?) request the
output from the above-mentioned crashdump file:
$ ANALYZE/CRASH SYS$SYSTEM:SYSDUMP.DMP
$ DIAGNOSE CLUE$ERRLOG
