Few Question

A few questions :

1. When does this message come, while running some applications or accessing some database.

2. While installation.

Gives us some details so as to analyse and fix the problem.

The machine was working fine for months together and all of a sudden this happened. to be precise twice in a week..

This is a SunOS 5.5.1 with Sun Sun Storedge A1000, arraymgr 6.1.1

while power-off and boot up again, the /var/messages shows
'panic[cpu0]/thread=0x3001fec0; trap.....

sched:data access exception:
MMU sfsr=11009b: Porivlege Violation on ASI 0x11 E 0 CID 1 PRIV 1 W 0 OW 1 FV 1

Thanks for ur post..

Your computer is complaining that it has a problem accessing a memory card. It may be correct and you may have a bad memory card. But some suns also erroneously issue this error message and there is a firmware patch to correct this.

This error is basically a Segmentation Violation that happens in the kernel. This is usually caused by a bug in a device driver. In solaris 2.5.1, there were several bug reports of drivers causing this error. If there is a stack traceback after the CPU panic, please post it here and we can get a better idea of which driver is causing this. You can also create directory /var/crash and then create a directory under /var/crash with the hostname of the machine. The next time it crashes, you will get a crash dump. You can then get the crash dump to Sun if you have a support contract. If you don't, please post that info and I can give you an ftp site to send the dump to.

An alternate shotgun method is to load the latest recommended patch cluster for 2.5.1 from and install it. Let us know how you want to proceed.

And last, this could be marginal hardware getting ready to fail. The stack trace or the crash dump is the only way to really tell.

It will be helpful if u could tell, how to link this info with other system components...

As Mr. Perderabo suspected, the problem seems to be related to Mem card.. The latest failure give out this info..
