Question about HP Compaq ProLiant DL380 G3 Server
The fans will not rotate but fan 1 lite is green (not rotating)and fan 4 is amber in color(not rotating) the server will boot up , however after awile the
# 1 fan will turn amber and then the server shutsdown and reboots.
seems to be no power to fan motors but i don't know why.
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.
