Cause

Having investigated the logs, we confirmed the following, from the diagnostics tool.

It was confirmed that a restart of the appliance resolved the CRITICAL errors.

Having investigated further, we confirmed that the issue relates to the BMC chip going out-of-sync, and by restarting the appliance, the BMC chip was reset and that cleared the errors.

 

Resolution

Further checks into the sysinfo log showed that the BMC firmware on the reported S400-20 appliance is on version 3.16 and a bit older. See excerpt below, from the sysinfo file.

And the latest version of BMC firmware, for the same appliance model, is 3.21. See the Tech. Article with URL below, for reference.

https://knowledge.broadcom.com/external/article/170602/finding-which-bmc-firmware-version-is-on.html

Resolution: To ensure this CRITICAL issue does not recur, we recommend an upgrade of the BMC firmware on the appliance, to the latest version.

Note: The BMC firmware is embedded in hardware diagnostics version 3.1.2.1 or later, i.e. there is no separate BMC firmware to download

To upgrade the BMC firmware to the latest version, an upgrade of the HW diagnostics will be required. For this appliance model, the HW diagnostics should be upgraded to version 3.1.3.1. For the download links for the HW diagnostics as well as the install instructions, please refer to the Tech. Article with URL below.
