Question about HP Compaq ProLiant DL580 G4 (430811001) Server
After power down we receive 1611 I/O Fan error. Server is old and we could not find documentation. Please help!
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.

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.
