Checkout the fans inside the server. They may not be running and in this case you need to replace the faulty fan (if any).
Moreover, there may be dust inside the server chasis which requires cleaning.

Hope it helps! Good Luck!

The problem could be a faulty CPU fan or the fan and heat sinl assembly is clogged with dust.
Check the fan, if it does not spin freely then replace the fan. If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust, remove the dust and use a can of compressed air to clear the dust from the heat sink fins.

Problems with IBM Xseries 346 Server


Check Light Path Diagnostic which is located on the front side of server . It gives a clue of what's the issue . If you can't see any amber on Light Path Diagnostic , then its an indication of max logs logged on BIOS event logs. You may need to restart server > Get into Bios and clear all event logs . This would remove the information sympol from server .

I have an IBM x346 eserver that has run well for years. The fans are now very load (whirling noise). I typically only hear this noise when the room temp is high, but this server is in a cool room with no...


It sound like the CPU fan or server case fan/s or power supply fan bearings are worn.
To determine which fan/s is faulty open the computer case and stop each fan from spinning, one at a time to determine the noisy fan. Once you have identified the noisy fan then replace that fan.

X 346 powers on, then shuts down - no HDD installed


Even without the harddrive, you should be able to see the server power up with Bios/Memory test. It should be able to indicate to you that no drive found. In addition, you should be able to press F1 or F2 to enter into system setup.....hope this help

The fan light indicates a problem in xseries 346 and the fan rate is very high )there is high noise from the fans. what can be the problem?


There are many fans in servers. If one dies the others will work overtime to keep it cool. It sounds like you lost a fan somewhere.

When the server starts up you may see a POST message on the screen pointing out which fan failed. Otherwise, remove the cover and look for a failed fan. Be careful not to leave the cover off for very long. The cover is what makes sure the air flows correctly over the components.

If this helps please vote for my solution.

Its not booting and the Leds VRM and NMI are with amber color


VRM and NMI lights lit usually indicate an issue with CPU #2's VRM which can be replaced. Also check 5 lights on back middle of system. If VRM light is lit here remove CPU 2 and VRM and reboot system. If system boots, this was the issue...
