Issue with power button in HP ProLiant ML370 G6 server

If i am not mistaken I belive that there are two power supplies, correct? what if you swap them? Or if you have a spare... I think that maybe either the button isn't working correctly or the power supply might have some issues...I also think there might be some LED lights on the power supplies themselves...check it out.

Issue with power button of HP ProLiant ML370 G6 server.

I would check the the power supply to make sure they are seated correctly. Also, if you have intalled any new item, check to make sure it is seated correctly. If all are correct, you may have a faulty power supply or the en power outlet may not be correct specs for power needed.

Good luck.

Its not booting and the Leds VRM and NMI are with amber color

VRM and NMI lights lit usually indicate an issue with CPU #2's VRM which can be replaced. Also check 5 lights on back middle of system. If VRM light is lit here remove CPU 2 and VRM and reboot system. If system boots, this was the issue...

Internal led of ML350 server is do i resolve it?

Hi Franceso, plz specify
Is it powering ON ?
Which LED is glowing?
These leds are there on the front panel :

1 Power On/Standby button
2 System power LED
Green = Power on
Amber = System shut down, but power still applied
Off = No power

3 Internal health LED (Wave sign in BOX)
Green = Normal
Amber = System degraded. To identify the component in a degraded state, refer to system board LEDs.
Red = System critical. To identify the component in a critical state, refer to system board LEDs.
Off = Normal (when in standby mode)

4 External health LED (power supply)
Green = Normal
Amber = Power redundancy failure
Red = Critical power supply failure
5 NIC 1 activity LED Green = Network link
Flashing = Network link and activity
Off = No link to network.
6 UID LED Blue = Activated
Flashing = System remotely managed
Off = Deactivated
7 UID button

If it is Internal health led then any internal h/w issue is suspected.
If it is external health led then any power supply or power source related issue is suspected.
Also check the status of the server & its IML (Integrated Management Logs) in ilo (Integrated Lights Out ) if it is configured. (2nd RJ45 port in rear)

Also make sure the cabinet is properly closed.
