    Thanks Misterixas,

    yes it uses UPS, and the output is tested for proper groundings and specifications.The power is redundant.

  • Misterixas May 11, 2010

    Well, your UPS is working OK, and you got the power you need. Does your server show any life signs? I mean is there any indication lighting? Do you hear ventilation movement when you try to start server?

    Does it uses any UPS or is it connected straight to the mains socket on the wall?

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.

System doesn't get on after shut down

Check the system BIOS. I know that in certain HP systems you can disable the power button so that it doesnt do anything. It's to stop the system being accidently shut down

Shuts down 2 seconds after powering on.

Don't know this exact server. But my guess it is either a heat issue or a power supply issue. Turn it on with the cover off. Check the CPU fan(s). If your CPU is getting too hot the system might be shutting down power to save it. If everything seems cool it might be the power supply I have seen it when the power supply fan goes out on the power supply and the caps inside start to sizzle. Voltage ramps up and fail.
Hope this helps.
Also, Something that has tripped me in the past. Make sure the power button is not stuck. I had a server that the power button stuck down and it would turn itself off. Took me 2 CPU fans and a power supply to figure that out. LOL

Dell PE1800 psu wont swith off...Computer powers down but psu fan continues to run. Have to pull the power plug to shut it down.

Sounds like the PSU is overheating. Some PSU's are designed to keep the fan running to cool it down even after system shut down. I would let the fan run after shutdown to see how long it takes to shut itself off. If there are no environmental issues tat are causing overheating you might want to consider replacing the PSU.

Check your events log to eliminate software issues. From a hardware point of view the unit could be overheating causing ASR to kick in
