ALPHA SERVER DS10 with OPEN VMS 7.3

The server is not booting up. Currently when we start up:

1. it beeps 6 times.
2. the hard drive light remains on.
3. the fan light remains on.
3. it cuts off on its own.

Initially only #1 above was occurring. Then #1 and #2 started occurring. Then #1 to #3 started occuring. Now #1 to #4 is occurring.

Any information on the cause and the solution would be appreciated.

Thanking you in advance
S.S.

    Thanks for the help, I still need to get RAM in order to test it though

    If replacing memory does not help, try to replace PSU.

DS10 - Six beeps indicates that a checksum error has occurred after the ROM image was copied into memory. Probably either memory is misconfigured or a memory DIMM needs to be reseatedor replaced.

I'm tring to istall Ubunto on HP ProLiant ML150 G5, there are after powering on the server 8 beep and nothing apens. How to solve that problem; I don't if make a mistake on RAID configuration.


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:
  1. Slot 1 only; slots 1 and 2 only (pairs must be of the same size).
  2. 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)
  3. Dual rank DIMMs can only be supported in slots 1 and 2.

Help with server boot problems flashing orange lights etc


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.

DS10 with SBS PCI Expansion


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.

A rare opportunity to work with VMS again!!

Good stuff.

Server is giving beep with red light on.


Hi Mirwais,
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.
