Error codes

Error codes

I note a number of error code questions - I have the error code document and so I can decode a good deal of it , but the minor error codes are vague. Perhaps they are vendor specific? In any case a detailed description which would allow trouble shooting would be great.

Is there such a document?

SINIT Error Code decoders are available as part of the SINIT AC module download.  You can find the correct kit based on your processor from this article https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/intel-trusted-execution-technology. Within each kit is a SINIT Errors document with decoder. Be SURE to choose the correct generation of processor as the codes do change meaning.

Ok - I do have that document - I just made sure it was the correct one.

I've decoded the  error to be a class 4 (progress 4) major error 1 (TPM Error) and a minor error code 3d - there's not much in the way of a description in the document as to what 3d means - or perhaps I'm just not looking in the correct place - it's a pretty short document.

I also verified that I'm using the correct SINIT module

You are right about not listing the minor error codes in the Intel document if they are in bits 23:15.  Those error codes come from the TPM and we just read them through. I did find TPMv1.2  Error Code Cheat Sheet several places on the web that broke these down, but I'm told for spec of the errors, check out http://www.trustedcomputinggroup.org/resources/tpm_main_specification.   Just FYI, 0x3D showed as (in the Cheat Sheet) "locality incorrect for the attempted operation."

Ok - so am I interpreting this incorrectly or is the problem in the TPM ACM/SINIT code?

Yes it is an error from SINIT ACM. But the actual error is coming from the TPM itself (the 23:15 bits). 

Closing out this thread as the 3D error code in this issue was thrown by the ST Micro TPM. More questions regarding their index's is in:https://software.intel.com/en-us/forums/topic/517866

For decoding errors, info is in the thread above as to what documents to use.
