Question about Dell PowerEdge 1300 Server
We have a poweredge 1300 that began beeping. It beeps every .5 second or so after server is running post. There are 3 HD's in the server, one of them with no light at all. Beeping seems to be coming from one of the processors. Machine is running fine, with beeping exception. Could this be a hard drive issue? Will the drive have a blinking light if it's working fine?
When a Dell server beeps in every 3-5 second that mean it comes from Raid controller.
Dell calls PERC Controller.
It usually reason of a disk failure.
Install open manage server administrator on your server.
See which disks are failed ?
Try to run Power edge diagnostics on the failed disk.
If it passes the test reseat the disk.
if it fails disk has to be replaced with a new one.
If passes the quick test, reseat the disk and update disk + perc firmware and driver to the latest level. that will solve the problem!!
99% beeping comes from perc controller because of a failed HDD
