Re: nosiy server

Your fans may be cheap sleeve fans instead of ball bearing fans. This is not an uncommon problem. I would suggest either taking it apart yourself and replacing the fan(s) making the noise or having a Computer Repair center do it unless that would void the guarantee.

Server Randomly Reboots

First, go to Dell's website and update all the firmware and install the latest version of Dell Server Administrator. DSA has logs information not logged by Windows. Next, take it outside and blast the fans with compressed air, make sure all components and cables are properly seated in their slots/sockets, turn it on with the cover off and make sure all the fans are spinning. Many servers will increase the fan speed if they detect the cover is off so this is another possible cause to the problem.
Finally, Dell servers have lifetime support, this number should work: (800) 945-3355
Good luck!
BTW: A temporary workaround might be to use a network controlled outlet that you can remotely turn off and on. Your UPS might be able to turn outlets on and off or you could get a stand alone network controlled outlet. Some can actually ping the device and turn power off and on again if it stops replying to pings. (E.g. IP Power EV-9255 IP

Hp proliant dl 180 g5 cooling fan issues fan given noise

I would power the server off. Blow it out with a can of air. Power it back up.. If it is still making a noise, you need to replace the fan.

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...


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

Poweredge 1500sc, i hear a continues beeping noise. i looked in the back of the server and the fans are spinning? what could it be? I've only used 50% of the memory?

Is it overheating?
Is the video-card "loose" ?
Remove the RAM, and reseat it, to make sure that it is properly connected.
Is one of the fans *NOT* spinning?

Hi, we are using HP DL360 with Red Hat 4.0, after installing sometime it created heavy noise during working after 2-3 days and the connectivity goes down, we need to restart the server each time to...

Big noise? Power Supply?

Even t log wouldn't always pick up a hardware failure that kills the machine. Goto HP Download diagnostic spoftware and see if that gives an answer.

Either that or when it does it, pull the lid off, listen to see where the noise is coming from (I.E. Power Supply, drives.. etc) and replace as neccesary.
