Question about Dell PowerEdge 2600 Server

3 Answers

Server shuts off.

Hi. In the last week, the server has shut completely down three times. I replaced the batteries in the PDU. Power went out again. I swapped out the PDU with a temporary surge protector. Power went out again. I replaced the surge protector with a new 30 min. UPS, but the server would not turn on. So I ran the power cord directly to the electrical outlet and after 15 minutes of being offline the server booted up. I am worried to shutdown the server and plug back into the UPS due to the server is supporting a retail store at the moment. Any suggestions.

Thanks,

Most likley you have an overheating problem .. (especially if it booted after being off (I.e. allowed to coll down) for a while)

I would check for dust blocked heatsinks / broken fans around the CPU chips ..

Thanks for the suggesting the power pack. It seems there are memory parity issues and sensors on the motherboard also affecting the performance of this out-dated server. I guess it is time to replace.

System doesn't get on after shut down


Check the system BIOS. I know that in certain HP systems you can disable the power button so that it doesnt do anything. It's to stop the system being accidently shut down

How to replace raid card battery


Firstly, shut down the server. Open the top cover and look for the RAID card battery. Should be easy enough to spot it. Unplug it from the board and replace with the new one. Power on your server and look for change notifications.

How big is your UPS backup. Small home / office only last a few hours before the battery drains. Their role is to allow time to save work and shut properly. Large enterprise UPS's last longer, but are dependent on battery bank size and configuration.

The server shutdown approxmatly every day


if the log says that the shutdown was unexpected, then I'd suspect a power outage at that time. If you're using a managed PDU, check to see if that outlet (or the whole pdu) is set to power cycle. If you have more then one power supply, I'd recommend plugging them into different pdu circuits. If you're pluged in to a UPS, suspect that the UPS is cycling and that there's no UPS management service running. If you're plugged into (yikes) the wall, suspect building power.
