You see one of the following messages when this fault is raised:
Processor [Id] is inoperable due to high temperature: Check cooling.
A catastrophic fault has occurred on one of the processors: Please check the processors' status.
Processor [Id] is operating at a high temperature: Check cooling.
PVCCD_P1_VRHOT: Processor 1 is operating at a high temperature: Check cooling.
P1_LVC3_PWRGD: Voltage rail Power Good dropped due to PSU or HW failure, please contact CISCO TAC for assistance.
P1_MEM23_MEMHOT: Temperature sensor corresponding to Processor 1 Memory 2/3 has asserted a Thermal Problem: Check server cooling.
This fault indicates that the processor has encountered a catastrophic error or has exceeded pre-set thermal/power thresholds.
If you see this fault, take the following actions:
If it's a thermal problem, check whether the airflow to the server is obstructed. Also, check whether the heat sink is properly seated.
If it's a power or voltage problem, replace the power supply.
If the problem still persists or the problem is because of the equipment, create a tech-support file and contact Cisco TAC.
