Amber light flashing on drive on compaq dl585

I have an amber light flashing on one of the drives, there are three all together, in my server. Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS release 4 update 6 and I don't see anything in /var/log/messages or dmesg that would indicate a problem.

Is there anything else I can do to troubleshoot this problem?

Dell Power Edge 2900 - amber and Red A light on tape Drive


An Amber blinking power button indicates a low voltage problem. This can be caused by a defective power supply or a defective motherboard. May also be a defective card inserted into your motherboard. Try isolating the problem by removing all components until you just have motherboard and power supply and see if it turns on.

Fujitsu econel 100, server wont boot after trying many things i removed memory chips one by one and finally the server booted so i suspect it as faulty memory chip ok I managed to login and tinker around...


See if your fans and drives are spinning up fast enough, perhaps image a fresh drive if you can; certainly it's time to resolve BIOS state issues from discombobulating the DDR.
Er, how many DIMMs are in there now? 1? Is it good?

Try taking the side off and removing and replacing all the hard drive leads. Remove and replace all the scsi drives and generally check for loose connections. If this does not work you will need to post more infomation.

Internal led of ML350 server is glowing.......how do i resolve it?


Hi Franceso, plz specify
Is it powering ON ?
Which LED is glowing?
These leds are there on the front panel :

1 Power On/Standby button
2 System power LED
Green = Power on
Amber = System shut down, but power still applied
Off = No power

3 Internal health LED (Wave sign in BOX)
Green = Normal
Amber = System degraded. To identify the component in a degraded state, refer to system board LEDs.
Red = System critical. To identify the component in a critical state, refer to system board LEDs.
Off = Normal (when in standby mode)

4 External health LED (power supply)
Green = Normal
Amber = Power redundancy failure
Red = Critical power supply failure
5 NIC 1 activity LED Green = Network link
Flashing = Network link and activity
Off = No link to network.
6 UID LED Blue = Activated
Flashing = System remotely managed
Off = Deactivated
7 UID button

If it is Internal health led then any internal h/w issue is suspected.
If it is external health led then any power supply or power source related issue is suspected.
Also check the status of the server & its IML (Integrated Management Logs) in ilo (Integrated Lights Out ) if it is configured. (2nd RJ45 port in rear)

Also make sure the cabinet is properly closed.

Amber light


If the flashing amber light doesn't go away, you've got a drive telling you it doesn't feel very well and should be replaced. This is covered in the pre-failure warranty and just place a call to Service to get it replaced.
