Question about HP Compaq ProLiant DL360 G3 Server
I have a HP proliant dl 360 g3 server that I use to host a small radio station. The other night it went down so I went to check to see what's up. I first tried cntl alt delete to use the monitor to see whats wrong but nothing, montior was blank but the server was still running. So I tried to reboot by powering down then unplugged it, then powered it back up still nothing on screen. Next I powered it back off and then changed monitors and opened it up to check connections ect then poweredd it back up. This time the monitor came on and the startup sequence began but just after it recognizes the cpu it beeps and then says, ''an unexpected shutdown occured prior to this power up. 1611 CPU zone fan assembly failure detected. fan solution not sufficient'' a small led on the board is lit that indicates a fan problem as well as the top led on the front of the server is now red.
I looked and all fans seem to be working ok. I removed the asssembly and blew them out really good with compressed air as well as all the vents and everything else but I still get the error and it won't let it boot up or even get far enough to access anything.
Is there really a fan problem or is it stuck from this ''prior unexpected shut down'' and just needs to be bumped past this problem?
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.
