Have you checked the IBM website for BIOS and any firmware to download and update for the controller? It can get to be a maze with server cards.

Hi,
Welcome to Fixya
The problem is with the raid controller . Either the controller is faulty or it is due to dust or happen some shake. To rectify this issue do the following
1: Switch off the server 2: Remove the Raid controller from the server and clean the dust . ( Please Don't touch with hand just blow air ) 3: Clean the Controller slot 4: Refix the Controller and power on the server . 5: Check whether the controller is booting or not . 6: If you gets same problem then replace the controller

Thanks

Controller monitor failed,controller not started appeared on my screen when i opened our server systemx3500


This is a raid controller failure. Server is not able to initialize device.

Workaround:
1: Turn off server
2: Take out Raid Controller from server > blow air on raid controller slot to remove dust.
3: Put it back

Now turn on server and see of it gets initialized.

If you still gets error then its time to replace controller

Thanks

SERVER IBM SYSTEM X3400: "CONTROLLER MONITOR


Hi,

Welcome to fixya

This error can come if there is any issue on Raid controller

Most probably , dust will be the enemy.

Just re-fix the raid controller and check. ( Power off the server while doing this job)

After re-fix check if it works . If it doesn't then it's time to replace the controller.

Thanks
