RISC System 6000 Boot LEDs

Problem

Your RS6000 ain’t booting. 🙂 Or you are just interested what the LEDs mean.



Solution

See Example



Example


  1. Power On [LED 100 – 199]
  2. BIST [LED 100 – 199]
  3. POST [LED 201 – 298]
  4. Load Kernel [LED 299]
  5. Configuration [LED 500 – 999]
  6. INIT [LED 553]

init than loads /etc/inittab services – then /sbin/rc.boot (phase 3 of system boot),
/etc/rc (startup shell script), subsystems (cron, qdaemon, tcpip), getty (enable terminals)
