Diagnostic programs and messages

The diagnostic programs are the primary method of testing the major components of the server. As you run the diagnostic programs, text messages are displayed on the screen and are saved in the test log. A diagnostic text message indicates that a problem has been detected and provides the action you should take as a result of the text message.

Make sure that the server has the latest version of the diagnostic programs. To download the latest version, go to the IBM Dynamic System Analysis (DSA) website.

Utilities are available to reset and update the diagnostics code on the integrated USB flash device, if the diagnostic partition becomes damaged and does not start the diagnostic programs. For more information and to download the utilities, go to the IBM Dynamic System Analysis (DSA) website.
