Resetting a RSC / ALOM Card from Solaris

Here an RSC card wasn’t responding so my colleague decided to reboot the card.

root@solaris9:/ # /usr/platform/`uname -i`/rsc/rscadm shownetwork
rscadm: RSC firmware not responding~

When you pass the flag -s you try a soft reset in the card.

root@solaris9:/ # /usr/platform/`uname -i`/rsc/rscadm resetrsc -s
Are you sure you want to reboot RSC (y/n)?  y
rscadm: RSC firmware not responding

Here is the how to perform the hard reset

root@solaris9:/ # /usr/platform/`uname -i`/rsc/rscadm resetrsc
Are you sure you want to reboot RSC (y/n)?  y

If you need to reset the ALOM card, use scadm with the same parameters as above

root@solaris9:/ # /usr/platform/`uname -i`/sbin/scadm resetrsc -s

Unfortunately, resetting the card didn’t solve the problem.
