IBM error code 2807
ibm error code 2807
Found error 2807 on your RAID card IBM server?
As you can see on the picture i got "error 2807" or "IBM Serveraid 7K onboard not responding properly error code 2807" on our application server (IBM series). This error related to RAID card which can not read it's logical RAID configuration. This means that the server can not boot and it's a big, big problem to us. We tried to fix this error as there is no maintenance contract for this machine. I googling to see whether someone experience this problem also.
There are about 73,400 result on this error problem. So i am not alone here. IBM suggesting to upgrade BIOS version to the latest version 7.12 ( actually we already version 7.12 ). So this is not apply to our problem.
While we rebuild another server to replace this machine and restore all the data from our last night backup we also pull out this server from cabinet and try to open the case the see what happened inside. At first we found nothing strange with the hardware, but when we open further more, we see that the battery of RAID memory card is swollen and bent the RAID memory. We try to clean up the hardware and re-insert the RAID memory and battery. We still have the problem and we feel that the chances is thin to fix the problem by our self.
Horay...we fix it finally
We try to separate the battery from RAID memory to fullfil our curiosity... we reboot the server and bingo! now the error code has gone and everything seems to be fine.
We are finally sure that the problem has gone completely after doing several times reboot, shutdown and restart.
It seems the problem come when RAID card memory was bent because of swollen battery push it severely.
