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.

Shuts down 2 seconds after powering on.


Don't know this exact server. But my guess it is either a heat issue or a power supply issue. Turn it on with the cover off. Check the CPU fan(s). If your CPU is getting too hot the system might be shutting down power to save it. If everything seems cool it might be the power supply I have seen it when the power supply fan goes out on the power supply and the caps inside start to sizzle. Voltage ramps up and fail.
Hope this helps.
Also, Something that has tripped me in the past. Make sure the power button is not stuck. I had a server that the power button stuck down and it would turn itself off. Took me 2 CPU fans and a power supply to figure that out. LOL

Hp proliant server is shutting down in every 4-5 hours due to cpu over hitting. its internernel health indicator on chassis is red & externel is Amber. One fan of one smps is not moving.


Hi,
Heat up is mainly due the clogged heat sink and fan etc, which requires to be cleaned. It is strongly recommended that you clean the heat sink etc yourself or seek help from authorized professional at the earliest to avoid any damages to the PC.
If the system fan is not working properly, it may be due to dust inside the fan. This could be due to faulty fan or it may be stuck due to dust etc. In this case, using a compress air for cleaning would be helpful. This will result in heating up of the system and the processor/ graphic unit may burn. Try to clean the fan. You may use Compressed Air can to remove the dust etc. Cleaning and lubricating liquid available commercially can be used to smooth the inside rotating parts of the fa. Also, do check the fan power connection. Give it a try and try to make sure the fan is running. (if not it needs replacement). If you find it faulty, you may find and replace the fan by removing the old/ faulty fan by removing the 4 screws and installing the new one.

Also, make sure that the PC is placed in a well ventilated environment and the air flow the the PC is correct.
The procedure is very simple and I believe immediate action is required to prevent any damage to your machine and data.

Hope it helps! Good Luck!
Thanks for using Fixya!

The fan light indicates a problem in xseries 346 and the fan rate is very high )there is high noise from the fans. what can be the problem?


There are many fans in servers. If one dies the others will work overtime to keep it cool. It sounds like you lost a fan somewhere.

When the server starts up you may see a POST message on the screen pointing out which fan failed. Otherwise, remove the cover and look for a failed fan. Be careful not to leave the cover off for very long. The cover is what makes sure the air flows correctly over the components.

If this helps please vote for my solution.

How i turn off a fan from motherboard


The fans that are plugged into the motherboard are usually powered by the motherboard. To turn them off, simply unplug them as there is always a power flow going through the motherboard and even more to power the fans when the system is running. I would recommend keeping the fan in if possible to help with cooling your PowerEdge 1400 server, but if it must be removed, simply power your server down, and unplug the fan. Make sure your server is powered off before doing this, as you don't want to short anything out or cause a spark.

HP proliant dl 360 g3 error code 1611 cpu fan failure


Remove all 6 fans, and then remove the fan rack itself. Then tighten the 2 pcb thumb-screws underneath. I believe this is sometimes the reason for false 'failed fan' reports.

Did you check the connection on the CPU zone up near the front interior of the server? They are like two black modules that sometimes get loose. If you open up the case, near the front left (usually) there you can push the modules down and make sure they are set properly, then try to power up server again. Let me know if that doesn't work and we can try something else.

1 and 4 fan problem


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.
