I think you should be alarmed, and you should call IBM service.

SRC:14002A81 means that there has been a communication problem between the two Bulk Power Controllers (BPC) inside the frame (probably a 9119 frame).

This is often due to internal cabling failures, failures of a BPC's Ethernet Hub  or in the most harmless case due to failures in the cabling between the HMC(s) and the frame.

In the worst case it could be that the Bulk Power Regulator (BPR) or one of BPCs has bitten the dust, but I don't think so.

Finally, in rare cases we saw such messages shortly after a frame reset.  Has there been such a reset?

Anyway, there is no way around calling IBM service (asap)!
