make sure all memory modules are properly installed. and they are install with the guide that came with the server remenber that most times beeping on post is caused by memory population mistakes. Here is a guideline ************************************************************************ Please ensure socket 1 is populated, otherwise the system will not boot. Install memory in balanced pairs Memory must be populated in one of the following ways:
Slot 1 only; slots 1 and 2 only (pairs must be of the same size).
Slots 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 ,and 6 (pairs must be of the same size and in
the example below with slots 1 and 2 the same and slots 2 and 3
the same, and slots 5 and 6 the same)
Dual rank DIMMs can only be supported in slots 1 and 2.
replace with a new card. The beeps are indicitive 0f failed hardware 2 beep 2 beeps = video card series of 3 beeps keyboard ,malfunction etc etc so whichever card now gives you one long beep you had better start there.....
Seems the RAID is broken. You may see which drive (hot swappable?) it showing an error code with its lights in front. If not, I would suggest re-seated all drives. If you see one that is not right, remove it all the way, while it is on, then push it back in, it should try to rebuild the raid on the drive, if it still fails, you will need to replace the drive.
Not sure what RAID you are using or how many drives, so feel free to explain more.
Version 7.1-2 is an older version of the OS. I will have to check, but I think that V7.2 will resolve this. What version of TCP/IP are you using? Back in the day when I supported TCP and VMS, there were some timing issues that causes odd behavior. If you can provide the details about your configuration, I can check and get back to you. If necessary, an examination of a forced crashdump may be needed.
The beeping problem could be an indication of a few issues. One of which could be that the hard drive is overheating and when you remove it for those ten or twenty minutes, the drive cools and the problem disappears until the next time it heats up. You should open the machine and do a cleaning with a vaccuum. Heavy dust accumulation within the box can be a cause of poor air circulation. Also be sure to vac out the power supply fan and check that the fan is actual working to cool the system.
Also the beeping sound could be a sign that the processor is overheating, so be sure that area around the processor is cleared of dust and the processor is getting proper circulation. Have you experienced any system freezes. It YES then I would definitely look closely at the processor.
