Node03::> system health alert show
Node: Node03-02
Resource: SP Config
Severity: Major
Indication Time: Tue Jan 19 09:21:38 2021
Suppress: false
Acknowledge: false
Probable Cause: Service Processor in node Node03-02 has no network
                connectivity.The cable between the Wrench port on the
                controller and the ethernet switch is disconnected.
Possible Effect: You might not be able to use the Service Processor to
                 remotely access, monitor, and troubleshoot your
                 storage system.
Corrective Actions: 1. Check the connection between the Wrench port and the ethernet switch.
                    2. If the cable is properly connected, ensure that the Service Processor's ethernet interface is configured properly by executing the command "system service-processor network show".
                    3. Check for network cable related issues.
                    4. Contact the technical support if the alert persists.
