How to clear fmadm log or FMA faults log

Here are the step by step of clearing the FMA faults on most of Oracle/Sun server. Work perfectly on Solaris 10:

Clear fmadm log, Example :
———————————-
For each fault listed in the ‘fmadm faulty’ run:
# fmadm repair <uuid>   (OR if the components are listed instead, e.g.:)
# fmadm repair 568a9180-7308-4535-92e6-a7c17ef1bfef

[Clear ereports and resource cache:
# cd /var/fm/fmd
# rm e* f* c*/eft/* r*/*

[Clearing out FMA files with no reboot needed:
svcadm disable -s svc:/system/fmd:default
cd /var/fm/fmd
find /var/fm/fmd -type f -exec ls {} \;
find /var/fm/fmd -type f -exec rm {} \;

SL500/SL3000/SL8500 - E-Delivery Hardware Activation Information

For new model of SL500/SL3000/SL8500 tape library, the license key no longer using Silk License.

New license activation was so called 'E-Delivery Hardware Activation files'. Here are the summary of document [ID 1299169.1]

 -----------

E-Delivery Hardware Activation Information:
This is the SILKs replacement for activating hardware upgrades on the SL500, SL3000, and SL8500 libraries.  For downlevel libraries, the old SILKs process must be used. 

In order to use the E-Delivery Hardware Activation files the following Oracle StorageTek Library firmware must be installed and operational.

  SL500  - 1409 or higher (currently available)
  SL3000 - 3.0x or higher (available second quarter of 2011)
  SL8500 - 7.0x or higher (available second quarter of 2011)

Before proceeding, contact your Service Representative if your library code is not at the minimal level listed above.

Ensure that Oracle StorageTek Library Console (SLC) 4.75 or higher for SL500, or 5.00 or higher for SL3000/8500, is installed and operational on a Windows, Linux, or Solaris platform that has Ethernet access to the desired Oracle SLseries library. The SLC application software is available for download from
the E-Delivery web site:

  1) Access the E-Delivery web site at http://edelivery.oracle.com. (Oracle Software Delivery Cloud - Portal -)
  2) Ensure that the desired language is selected and then click "continue".
  3) Enter the information requested and then click "continue".
  4) Select the “Oracle StorageTek Products” from the Product Pack pull down.
  5) Select the “Generic Platform” from the Platform pull down, and then click “go”.
  6) From the "Results" list, select and save to a known location the desired SLC zip file.
  7) Unzip the zip file and install the SLC by executing the appropriate platforms install executable.

Unzip the purchased E-Delivery Hardware Activation zip file and place the ".img" (SL500) or ".jar" (SL8500/3000) in a known location.

Use the Oracle StorageTek Library Console (SLC)to install the ".img" or ".jar" activation file:

1) Start SLC and connect to the desired SL-series library by entering the requested information. Refer to the library product's Users Guide for details.
2) Once connected, go to the Tools > Hardware Activation > "Install Hardware Activation Keys" tab.
3) Select the desired ".img" or ".jar" Hardware Activation file that was previously unzipped and stored in a known location. Click "Open".
4) Verify that the "Hardware Activation File" value column contains the desired activation feature and if so, click "Install.". Repeat until all activation files are installed.
5) Once last activation file has been installed, a reboot is required to enable the new features.

Host Power-On Failed: System Power OK, Open Boot not responding

I faced this issue while troubleshooting disk issue on Sun Fire V440.

The disk has intermittently undetected from host, tried to upgrade the OBP firmware from 4.13 to 4.30, found the amber light with below error messages:

"Host Power-On Failed: System Power OK, Open Boot not responding"

--------------
sc> poweron
SC Alert: Host System has Reset
sc>
SC Alert: Host Power-On Failed: System Power OK, Open Boot not responding
sc>
SC Alert: Host System has Reset
-------------

found related KB while searching on MOS:
"On V440/N440 2P systems with OBP 4.22.19 firmware and ALOM firmware 1.5.4 may encounter a host power on failure. (Doc ID 1000080.1)"
Root Cause
The root cause was determined to be the OBP probe timeout value of 2.5 seconds set in ALOM 1.5.4.
Deviation WO_35484 was issued to Celestica (CMX) to rework V440/N440 systems by loading ALOM 1.6.3 FW.

Document 1000080.1 can be found at: https://support.us.oracle.com/oip/faces/secure/km/DocumentDisplay.jspx?id=1000080.1

So, there is a bug on current ALOM. the OBP firmware is upgraded to the latest already, now what I need to do is to upgrade the ALOM firmware. Patch id/name is 10263984

Install patch ID  10263984, its contains 2 file. For V440, use "ALOM_1.6.10_fw_hw0.tar.gz".

Copy and extract file "ALOM_1.6.10_fw_hw0.tar.gz" to "/usr/platform/SUNW,Sun-Fire-V440/lib/images" directory.

Then, run command: "scadm download boot alombootfw"

bash-3.00# pwd
/usr/platform/SUNW,Sun-Fire-V440/lib/images
bash-3.00# gzcat ALOM_1.6.10_fw_hw0.tar.gz | tar xf -
bash-3.00# /usr/platform/`uname -i`/sbin/scadm download boot alombootfw
