While working on setting up the Nodes for this second test run, we ran into this:
Remote KVM Session
Establishing session. Please wait…
This would go on and on and on no matter which machine we were trying to connect from.
Looking in the logs we found:
KVM Session sensor – Invalid session ticket
Note the distinct lack of an exclamation mark to indicate what is essentially a serious problem. We lost the ability to create a KVM session with any of the Nodes.
Looking in the Events tab we found:
A call into Intel brought about the following process:
- Power down all Nodes in the IMS.
- Reset the CMM module.
- Click on the Chassis Back tab.
- Click on the CMM module.
We have the Nodes set to power up automatically in the BIOS after a power failure. So, the Nodes all came back up and we were relieved to see that we could make a KVM connection to each Node without the error happening.
