In the log file I can see "ext-fs error", but Solaris Sparc should use "ufs" or "zfs" filesystem, do you use the right installation DVD/CD ?

I would start by booting off the cd in recovery mode and fsck those filesystems.

After that if you are still crashing (the oops errors) boot single user mode and work your way through the init scripts starting each process one at a time and see if one of those programs is misbehaving.  

Did you scan the hard drives in your tests?

So do you get those errors if you boot the system into single user mode?

The t5220 out of the box has  auto-boot set to true which skips the ok prompt.  It also looks like stop A with a sun keyboard is being ignored.  That may just be a problem on my box though because stop A should always bring us to the ok prompt.  Have you tried STOP A keys with a sun keyboard?

Those error messages are from linux and I just assumed that was the OS on the system but now I think we should clarify if that is from the OS or from ILOM?

Assuming you can get to ILOM using the serial mgt port you can change auto-boot like this.

-> set /HOST/bootmode script="setenv auto-boot? false"
Set 'script' to 'setenv auto-boot? false'

-> set /HOST send_break_action=break
Set 'send_break_action' to 'break'

-> start /SP/console
Are you sure you want to start /SP/console (y/n)? y
Serial console started.  To stop, type #.

c)ontinue, s)ync, r)eboot, h)alt? r
Resetting...


SPARC Enterprise T5220, No Keyboard

OpenBoot 4.27.1, 3968 MB memory available, Serial #

auto-boot? =            false

OK


Once there you can insert the solaris cd and boot from the installation media and install solaris.

Hi paulc ,

i think my problem is a T5120 with corrupted iLOM images.
In fact, ilom is sort of minimal linux system (that's why we see EXT3 error on the log).

Now i'm trying to upgrade the ilom firmware with a new one.

But my problem now is the sc prompt is unstable. always see the PANIC message.

I'm trying to bypassed this and load the new firmware via tftp server.

Do you have a procedure ??

Is this a new box from Sun?

This is the documentation set for the system.
http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/E19637-01/index.html

This is the ilom 3.0 maintenance and diagnostic pdf that detials the upgrade procedure.
http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/E19860-01/E21449/E21449.pdf

If the ilom is contantly panicing and this is a new box I would engage oracle for warranty support and let them walk you through it.
