Question about Computers & Internet
Browse to the server in question using the Insight display on the front of the blade enclosure. It will likely be red and flashing. See if this has any relevant information. It will usually tell you why a server is not booting.
If this doesn't help then try going into the Onboard Administrator for the enclosure and seeing if the diagnostics there help. This communicates with an independent processor on each server using a separate internal management network so you can generally get some good info even if the server is having issues.
Have you added servers or changed your power redundancy settings recently? Either of these could cause you to need additional power supplies if you aren't already full.
Another possibility if your enclosure is not completely full of fans or has one or more fans that are failed is that you are trying to put the server in a pair of slots that won't provide adequate cooling. The Insight Display should help you with this. If you have physically moved the server from one location to another then this is a very strong possiblity/
One last thing, if you are running on 110-120V power with a C7000 enclosure then you need to change to hi-line voltage as 110/120 is not supported and has limitations/issues. If it's a C3000 then you are OK with 110/120.
