SCSI FRU Codes Power PC


When the system detects a SCSI device error, one of the letters in the following list may be displayed to identify which device (supported IBM devices only) is causing the error. The associated error code is in the right hand column.

SCSI Error Code Format: Explanation of SCSI Error Codes

SCSI error codes are displayed as eight digit error codes. The first four digits identify which SCSI device is causing the error code.
The last four digits provide more information about the controller for the failing SCSI device, a two digit (EE) error code for the device, and the SCSI ID.



---+ |-++-- SCSI Bus ID

| | +--- 2 Digit Error Code EE (see table below)

| +----- Controller Number 0, 1, 2

| (System Board or Adapter)


+------- SCSI Error Code Prefix

Note: For 6015 the SCSI Bus ID will always be 0.

The 2 Digit Error Codes (EE in the figure above), are defined in the following table.
