Someone has pushed the system identification button on the front of the server. If you push it again the light will be solid blue.

I have blue background and no desktop


Hello,

I will assume you are trying to connect to another desktop from the server... You may need to setup share properties on the desktop to access it from the network. If you are using VM software on the server and having this issue, you need to reconfigure the VM setting for your user access level.

Good Luck

I have a blue vertical flashing light showing just above the Dell emblem. In the past there has been a solid light. I have checked on OpenManager which indicates all is well but I do not like unexplained...


Great thanks,

That's just a system indicator flash. Solid blue means on and normal, blinking means someone either turned on the system indicator in the management software or bumped the indicator switch on the back of the server. This was designed to make easier transitions from back to front when working with multiple servers in a rack. To turn the indicator off, just go to the back of the server and find the Ethernet and usb ports that are together. If the usb is the bottom and Ethernet port is the top then just to the right you should see a small blue blinking light and a button, pushing the button wil turn the blinking off.

Again, no worries this is just a "locator beacon" not an error message, if the light ever blinks yellow then you have an issue.

Hope this helps FixYa,

Chris

Dell poweredge 830 server orange flashing light instead of solid blue. No fault on screen. any ideas?


its the cover switch. there is a small push switch on the front panel that detects if the front cover has been removed, either the switch is defective, or the cover is not seating properly to close the switch.

Dell poweredge 1650 is beeping with blue flashing light


Flashing blue light is harmless - it simply means the Identify button has been pushed. There is a small button with a white, cursive 'i' on the front and back of the server - pressing this will make the light flash blue (or make it stop).

Go to Dell's support site and view the manual for the 1650 for an explanation of the beep code - identify the pattern of the beep.

If you are still able to get to Windows, use OpenManage Server Administrator to check the Hardware logs and RAID array.

Giving and indicates blue light? what it means


radical93

Is the light solid or is blinking. If the light is the system status light by the network jacks, then solid blue system light is turned on no errors in the BMC. If the indicator is blinking blue this mean the system is turned on and is in system ID state.

Let me know know if you have any more questions

System will power on for about 3 seconds and then shut down and the blue indicator light on front is flashing


your poweredge has detected a hardware fault. If it is under warranty contact Dell. If it is out of warranty, you might carefully open the unit, and locate the fault diagnostic leds. They should be lit indicating the code for the fault condition/part.

Help with server boot problems flashing orange lights etc


Seems the RAID is broken. You may see which drive (hot swappable?) it showing an error code with its lights in front. If not, I would suggest re-seated all drives.
If you see one that is not right, remove it all the way, while it is on, then push it back in, it should try to rebuild the raid on the drive, if it still fails, you will need to replace the drive.

Not sure what RAID you are using or how many drives, so feel free to explain more.

In front pannel RED light is on and off what is the reasion


Dear Rameez,
it means your computer is in trouble.try contacting the customer service. its usually due to loose connection between the hard disk cables or your RAM...but avoid opening the cover, call service care instead.
