Question about Dell PowerEdge 1800 Server

1 Answer

I am running a Dell PowerEdge 1800 and have been for a few years. All of a sudden, the server is now making a high-pitched buzz and doesn't go away. I have restarted the server, but it eventually comes back. I have also unplugged and turned off the battery backup as that was thought to be the initial source.

It is the alarm for your CERC SATA 1.5/6 RAID controller. Install OpenManage Server Administrator (Managed Node, from Dell's Support Site) to see which drive has failed. Test the drive using Online Diagnostics. If you cannot test the drive or if the drive fails, then replace it with a drive at least as large (can be larger) as the failed one. If it passes diagnostics, then simply rebuild the drive or assign the drive as a hot spare to start the rebuild.

You can also boot to CTRL-A during POST to the Configuration Utility for the CERC, but ideally you would use OpenManage.

How do i enter in safe mode on my poweredge 1800 ?


Hi,
If the server is running Windows, you can usually enter safe mode by repeatedly pressing F8 after you press the power switch.
You can also get into the dell utility, which lets you run memory and system tests. To access this, follow the on screen directions during boot up.

High pitched noise red light blinking


A high pitch noise comes normally from blown capacitors from the motherboard or the power supply. But mostly high pitch noise comes from power supplies.

You could have to open up the power supply to see them.

Verify if it is the case and replace the faulty part.
