Question about HP Compaq ProLiant DL380 G4 Server

1 Answer

Proliant DL380 G4 server occasionally rebootes.


I am facing this problem with a Proliant DL380 G4 server .
Occassionally it starts rebooting frequently . When this problem occurs the server reboots before it enters the OS repeatatively . The problem frequency is nearly once in 15 days. Then if we just change the SMPS slot, or say open one fan then boot ( it gives error ) , then again fix the fan ,the server starts up normally . The problem again occurs after 15 to 20 days . Can you please suggest a permanent solution. Is there any problem in the bios ?

Re: Proliant DL380 G4 server occasionally rebootes.

Try to update the firmwares. Maybe the threeshould of the fans are incorrect. A new firmware can correct this problem.

Let me know if this post helps

Can not display the post


Assuming the system is powering on but you can't see the POST, reset the jumpers on the board for POST (Check your user manual for location), reboot your system, which should go into the POST, make any correction needed, reset the jumper and reboot your system.

Good Luck.

I have HP PROLIANT DL 380 (G4). I removed hard disk. Its start and few seconds restart again. its happening continuously. Any solution.

need to provide moreinfo.
is the server (prolaint DL380) constantly rebooting within BIOS mode or has it got to the stage of running windows.
The other item not mentioned here, is, IF the raid controller has failed, you will not see any disks initializing and would cause the system to continually reboot.
If it is an internal raid controller, it is part of the motherboard, you will need to contact HP to have it replaced.

If an pci related array controller .. i.e. separate to the motherboard, this will need to be replaced to see the HDD's.
Either way sounds like a hardware issue. Best to liaise directly with vendor to have the faulty components replaced.

How do i boot a compaq proliant dl380 with a usb drive set up for booting?


Make sure you have turned on the USB Boot in the BIOS of the os. Once this is done, select the order you would like for the server to locate boot files. (Hard Drive, USB, CD/DVD, etc.) Once complete, insert the USB and reboot the server.

Good Luck
