Where is poweredge 1800 display led connector


http://www.dell.com/support/troubleshooting/us/en/19/KCS/KcsArticles/Print?he Embedded System Management (ESM) log - also called System Event Log (SEL) or hardware log - reports potential hardware problems in Dell PowerEdge servers. Sometimes, simply turning off the server and disconnecting it from the electrical outlet will remove the error message. Wait approximately 10 seconds, and then reconnect the power cable and restart the server.

Other times, you will need to clear the ESM log to remove the error message. For instance, error code SEL FULLindicates that you will need to clear the ESM log. (You will lose the server's event history.) There are different ways to clear the ESM log.

To use DSET to Clear the ESM Log
  1. Download and open the DSET utility.
  2. Click the plus (+) next to System, and then click the plus (+) next to Logs.
  3. Click ESM to highlight it.
  4. Click Clear ESM Log located in the upper-right corner of the page.
To use OpenManage Server Administrator (OMSA) to clear the ESM log
  1. Start OpenManage Server Administrator (OMSA).
  2. Log in to OMSA by entering your username and password, and then press Enter.
  3. Click the Logs tab, and then click Hardware.
  4. Click Clear Log located next to Options.
To use Dell IT Assistant to clear the ESM log
  1. Start IT Assistant.
  2. From the middle System Tree bar, select your server by clicking it.
  3. Click the Logs tab, and then click Clear Log in the upper-right corner of the page.
Find your Dell PowerEdge server model in the chart below for other ways to clear the ESM log:

PowerEdge server model How to clear the ESM log 2300, 2400, 2450, 2500, 2500SC, 2550, 4300, 4350, 4400, 6300, 6350, 6400, 6450
Use the Log2Txt.exe utility to clear the ESM log:
  1. Start your server to the Log2Txt utility.
  2. When you see the ESM Log main menu appear, press 2 on your keyboard to select Clear ESM log.
  3. When the ESM Log main menu reappears, press 5on your keyboard to exit the utility.

Use the DRAC or ERA to clear the ESM log:
  1. Type the IP address of the Remote Access Controller (RAC) in the web browser address bar, and then press Enter.
  2. Log in to the RAC.
  3. Click the Logs tab, and then click Hardware.
  4. Click Clear Logs located in the upper-right corner of the page.
1850, 2800, 2850, 6800, 6850
Use the program BMCCFG.exe to clear the ESM logs:
  1. Download and extract the Dell OpenManage Deployment Toolkit here.
  2. Go to x:\Dell\Toolkit\Tools, where x is your primary hard disk drive.
  3. Copy the file BMCCFG.exe to a bootable floppy disk.
  4. Start the server from the bootable floppy disk.
  5. At the command prompt, type bmcc - clearsel, and then press Enter.
    The message "Clearing SEL" will display while the log clears.
1950, 2900, 2950, DP500, DP600, NF500, NF600
Use the BMC/BIOS to clear the ESM log:
  1. To open the BMC menu, press the Control + Ekeys during POST.
  2. From the list, select System Event Log, and then press Enter.
  3. Select Clear System Event Log, and then pressEnter.

Dell server shutdown


Try using OMSA, which is Dell's Server Administrator. Specifically for hardware and errors.
https://servername:1311 You require a local admin or domain account to login.

We have a Dell Poweredge 4400 & a Dell Poweredge 2300. Both have amber lights blinking - hard-disk failure indicators. They are using RAID. What do I need to do?


Go into the RAID setup during bootup (not always in the BIOS), but will post somewhere on startup (should say SCSI/SAS Controller card press CTRL + M to enter setup) or similar.

When in the raid setup check to see the status of the drive(s).

Was the machine running and it's just happened etc or are these machines you have obtained and are plain not working?

Hi i have a dell poweredge 2850. Orange LED blinking


It sounds like a hard disk has failed or fallen out of sync.
This can be a serious problem if not addressed ASAP.

Call Dell, they have lifetime phone support for their servers.

Write down the Express Service Code and Service Tag number that is on the server chassis before you call.
This is the last number I used for server support: (800) 945-3355
If it doesn't work you should be able to find a valid number at support.dell.com

I hope this helps.

Servers usually don't come with sound cards. If you really need one, you must install one. If it is truly a server, I would recommend against it.

Beside administrator, were there any other user accounts on the machine? If so, you can log in as one of those. If they have admin rights, even better.

Depending on the lock out policy that was set in windows, try it again. In some cases, it may be a few hours, in some cases, it may be days. All depends on how the policy was set up.

If this all fails, your next option would be to reload the OS and start all over. You can use the original instal disks that came with it.

Constant beep on poweredge 840 appears to work alright


Hi

Besides standard beeps codes indicating Processor, CPU, Memory or Systemboard failures,
Dell PERC (PowerEdge Expandable Raid Controller) or SAS Controllers (Serial Attached SCSI) generate beeps to alert failures on the RAID sub-system.

From your description of the issues (when the beeps start), i suggest you check PERC or SAS setup. If you have Dell OpenManage Server Administrator installed, you can log-in and check for more information. Additionally, on the next reboot check the PERC/SAS/CERC boot up for any messages. You may also access the PERC (Ctrl+M), SAS (Ctrl+R) CERC (Ctrl+A) Management Menu for specific failures and attempt a rebuild (assuming you have a redundant RAID Volume).

You can also speak with Dell Support and raise a warranty call if the system has warranty.

Note: PowerEdge 840 would ship with PERC or SAS Controller. PowerEdge 700 will ship with PERC or CERC.

Dell server poweredge 1800 frequently shutdown


is there an error message that appears? can you check error logs? I need more information to be able to help you. I would first try to blow dust out of the fans, as it may be over heating, another possibility is that there is software on the machine that is causing it to shut down.
