This might happen when it detects a non-functioning fan (to preserve all other components).
We've had the same problem on one of our server, one fan wouldn't start (needed more current to start it)

We had to replace the motherboard on server to make it work, since this one got it power from the MB.
A temporarily fix was: Pop fan 4 out, give it a push so it rotated and quickly insert it before it stopped, hope it won't be stopping until you receive a new motherboard.

Fujitsu econel 100, server wont boot after trying many things i removed memory chips one by one and finally the server booted so i suspect it as faulty memory chip ok I managed to login and tinker around...


See if your fans and drives are spinning up fast enough, perhaps image a fresh drive if you can; certainly it's time to resolve BIOS state issues from discombobulating the DDR.
Er, how many DIMMs are in there now? 1? Is it good?

Dell Poweredge SC1420 won't boot up


Amber lights are typically bad.

Good news, Dell has lifetime phone support for their servers.

Write down the Express Service Code and Service Tag number that is on the server chassis and call Dell.
This is the last number I used for server support: (800) 945-3355
If it doesn't work you should be able to find a valid number at support.dell.com

I hope this helps.

Fan flow error 1611 I/O


The ProLiant DL380 G3 server requires that both primary and redundant fans exist in a specific configuration in order to perform optimally. Any deviation from the specified configuration will cause one of the above error messages to occur and the internal Health LED to illuminate. In a ProLiant DL380 G3 server without the redundant fan option, the server will shut down after the error message is displayed. In a server with the redundant fan option, the internal Health LED will illuminate and the appropriate error message regarding fan redundancy will be displayed. The purpose of this document is to detail the required configuration for both primary and redundant fans.
DETAILS Both primary and redundant fans in the ProLiant DL380 G3 server must be configured to meet specific requirements in order to avoid the error messages above and in some instances, subsequent shutdown of the server.
All primary fan locations (2, 4, 5, 6 and 7) must be populated with a fan before the redundant fan locations (1, 3, or 8) are populated. If a primary fan location is left unpopulated, the server will display one or more of the error messages shown above. In addition, the internal Health LED (the top LED on the front panel of the server) will display the status of the fans.
When the redundant fan option is used, all redundant fan locations must be populated. ProLiant servers do not support partial population of redundant fans. If any redundant fan location is populated without also populating all other redundant fan locations in the server, the fan system will not be fully redundant and one or more of the error messages above will be displayed.
Figure 1 below illustrates a ProLiant DL380 G3 server configured with all eight fans installed for fan redundancy. The server airflow is divided into three zones: processor, I/O and power supply. Shared fans 4 and 7 each provide airflow for two zones. If a shared fan fails, the failure is experienced in both zones.
Figure 1: ProLiant DL380 G3 server configured with all eight fans installed for fan redundancy
The internal Health LED (the top LED on the front panel of the server) indicates failed or missing components. The internal Health LED should be observed to determine the status of the fans as follows:
RED LED: A red LED indicates that the minimum fan requirements have not been met. Minimum fan requirements indicate that all primary fan slots must be populated with functioning fans.
  • If the 1611 fan "x" is not present (where "x" is the fan location) error message is displayed at POST and the internal Health LED is red , then a primary fan is missing.

  • If the 1611 fan "x" failure (where "x" is the fan location) error message is displayed at POST and the internal Health LED is red , then a primary fan has failed.
AMBER LED: An amber LED indicates that the minimum fan requirements have been met; however, requirements for redundant fan configuration have not been met. This means that all primary fan slots are populated with functioning fans, but at least one redundant fan has either failed or is missing.
  • If the 1611 fan "x" is not present (where "x" is the fan location) error message is displayed at POST and the internal Health LED is amber , then a redundant fan is missing.

  • If the 1611 fan "x" failure (where "x" is the fan location) error message is displayed at POST and the internal Health LED is amber , then a redundant fan has failed.
Note: In a redundant fan configuration, the error message fan system not fully redundant will also be displayed at POST if any redundant fan slot is left unpopulated or if a redundant fan has failed.
