Question about Computer Servers

1 Answer

I have a HP Proliant DL360 G3 which I host a small radio station from. It went down the other night and when I went back to check on it, it was still running but I couldn't get the monitor to come on. So I rebooted it and again it was runnning but the screen was showing nothing, startup sequence or nothing. So I shut it down and unplugged it and then first changed montiors and opened it up to check connections ect. all looked ok so I plugged it back in and powered it up and the monitor came on and started the startup sequence but shortly after recognizing the main cpu it hits an error code and says "an unexpected shutdown occured prior to this powerup. 1611 CPU zone assembly failure detected. fan solutions not sufficient" and then shuts down in 5 seconds. I've checked the fans and all appear to be working fine, I pulled out the assembly, checked the connections, made sure they all turned freely, blew them out with canned air along with all the vents and everything else then reinstalled them, powered it back up and still have them problem. There's a small led on the board that is lit that indicates the problem as well as the top led on the front of the server that is red. All the fans are working but it won't let it boot far enough to get into anything. Is there realy a problem or still or is there something I can do to reset it or bump it out of the this?

Did you check the connection on the CPU zone up near the front interior of the server? They are like two black modules that sometimes get loose. If you open up the case, near the front left (usually) there you can push the modules down and make sure they are set properly, then try to power up server again. Let me know if that doesn't work and we can try something else.

It is possible the fan on the heatsink for the CPU is broken but make sure you check the small power plug for that fan before replacing it. If it is broken make sure you dont run the server or else you could permanently damage the CPU for the server.

Hello,

How big if your environment? How many users? Do you have remote access needs? If your environment is under 75 users then you might want to consider moving to Windows Small Business Server. It's a great little package that includes Exchange with it. You can also get the premium edition which includes Sharepoint.

Don't forget licensing needs during this whole process too. You want to make sure you are covered properly with software licenses from Microsoft when making the migration.

The hardware specs seem adequate but it will depend on the amount of users in your environment and workload for it.

I've included three links to different options for migration:

This link is pretty good to explain using the Microsoft tool.

http://www.petri.co.il/active_directory_migration_tool_usage_w2k_windows_2003.htm

This link provides info on the swing migration which is a bit more popular in the small business arena. Works pretty good. I've done it a few times.
http://www.sbsmigration.com/pages/14/

This link is for Acronis products that allow for easy ghosting or copying of data from one server to another. The good thing about this tool is that your SIDs are kept the same. So I don't know if its a big deal (depends on your environment size) but it can be a pain to rejoin workstations to a domain if new servers are added without successfully moving necessary settings. I've used this tool a few times. It's quick and easy.

I look forward to hearing more from you. Please update me on the questions I asked and if I can help further I will be glad too. Don't forget to rate the solutions once we're done! Thanks.

I am trying to boot a HP DL360 g3 from a flash drive. I get to the boot order menu, but it is not showing up. Any ideas?


This is a long shot, but:

  • Get into BIOS settings
  • System Options, Diskette Boot Control, Disabled
  • Save on Exit
Machines from 2006 were really not very good at booting from USB.

Hi My HP proliant dl360 G3 server reports an ok stauts on the cooling section of the system manager but for some reason the next day it reports an insuficient cooling problem and fan failure and reboots...


Hello,

From my experience, this is an indication that your fans need replacing. If your system manager is working properly, at night if your system is not use much, the manager will put the system in a low state of operation, almost like hybernation. When a request come in to 'wake-up' the system, the fans do not spin fast enough to cool your system properly thus the errors.

Replace the fans, recheck your settings in system manager making sure the manager software is monitoring the cooling and not the os. This should solve your issue.

Good Luck

Hi, I want to install an Ubuntu server edition on my HP proliant dl360 G3 series. This install is located on a USB-stick and I want to install it from there. How do I do this? Thanks in advance.


You firstly have to make your usb key bootable just google instructions on how to do that.
Set the boot order in the bios to boot from it and then transfer the image to the usb key and install from it.

No puedo instalar Small Business Server 2000 en mi servidor HP Proliant DL360 G3, el software no reconoce los discos duros del servidor. Que tengo que hacer para que me reconosca los discos duros?


Si el sistema operativo no reconoce tus disco, y ya has creado un arreglo nivel 1 o 5 y en la bios si puedes ver los dicos, el problema es posiblemente que necesites cargar los drivers de la controladora. Si puedes ver el modelo de la controladora (visible en el post) dirigete a la pagina de hp.com/support escoje el pais USA para que tengas acceso a todos los drivers, descargate el ultimo driver de tu controladora y cuando este instalando windows presiona f6 para cargar los drivers

HP proliant dl 360 g3 error code 1611 cpu fan failure


Remove all 6 fans, and then remove the fan rack itself. Then tighten the 2 pcb thumb-screws underneath. I believe this is sometimes the reason for false 'failed fan' reports.
