Getting Warranty Support — What to do if a problem occurs

Four simple steps to follow for an expeditious resolution:

Step 1: Go to https://support.servaris.com and create a support ticket. Even if you call us first, and you're welcome to do so, we still need the ticket with the trouble you are having.

Step 2: With the remote management software that you have installed on a client machine or server, or with tools such as ipmitool or freeipmi, connect to the Server and extract the SEL log. This can be done regardless of the power state of the server. The server must be connected to electrical power. Save the SEL log locally and paste the content of the SEL log in the Support Ticket you created in Step 1 above.

Step 3: Call Servaris at 1.877.963.1900 if you experience a hardware problem.

Step 4: Servaris will discuss the problem and provide technical assistance to find the defective component. In order to properly diagnose and replace a failing component, we will require the output of the hardware log extracted from the Server.

Replacement components will be sent directly to your location at no cost to you, the next business day, subject to inventory of the component(s) from the particular manufacturer of that component.

The IPMI Hardware (SEL) LOG provides instant diagnosis of monitored components and provides the shortest time for replacement of a failed component.

Software for Linux and Windows to monitor the clients ProServ Server(s) and retrieve vital information such as hardware logs is included in the original shipping box containing the Server(s). Clients running FreeBSD on client machines or Servers can use the freely available software, ipmitool.

IPMITOOL is a non-graphical interface that can be run on your Server(s) or on FreeBSD and Linux client machines. To install ipmitool on a FreeBSD Server or Workstation perform the following:

#cd /usr/ports/sysutils/ipmitool; make install clean
Once installed, simply run ipmitool such as:
shawn@node6 /home/shawn> ipmitool -H sel list

The above command will return the output of the logs of the Server queried and we can tell what is failing.
